History of Hip Hop 2015


Subscribe to Hip-Hop History in iTunes

2015 feels like it was yesterday, and this mix is chock full of anthems that still get run in the clubs and on the radio, like Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” and Desiigner’s “Panda.”  Then there are the viral hits that helped to define the current culture (think “Hotline Bling,” “Look At My Dab,” “Milly Rock.”)  But our favorites are the songs in the margins, songs like “Wavybone,” and “The Blacker The Berry,” and “Good Times.”

As always with The Rub’s History of Hip Hop series, the goal is to expand the canon to include not only the most popular songs of the year but also all of the forgotten greatness.  But most importantly it’s a banging mix from start to finish!
