These songs, paired with plenty of booze and loud, are a sure fire way to get any party lit. Get laid by playing these songs at your house party to get things moving along, then groove on over to where the ladies are grouped together and get that little dance going. You won’t need to do much other than offer one a drink to get things going. While you alone determine the outcome of any particular evening, the right environment is KEY to snapping up las chicas. In my part of town, we play oldschool hip hop like Big L, Rakim, Snoop and Devin The Dude. In mainstream America, just play the above list of new rap to gain approval with others around you.
If you are disappointed with the “top hip hop songs” of 2017, you’ll be very excited to know that a new Wu-Tang Clan album will be released soon!
You can listen to the album, “The Saga Continues,” here on their site.
While real hip hop music is not the most popular thing to the general public (which arguably has never been the case,) there is still hope. Releases from Wu will hopefully only be the start of things moving back towards the roots of rap music. In 2017, playing anything from Big L or KRS-One would get your Bluetooth privileges removed quick. If you want something that will sate your old school taste buds and still please the house party, check out ASAP Rocky’s “LiveLoveASAP” tape.
Download it from the ASAP MOB site here.
Since rap music will always be constantly evolving, shaped by the players in the game, we can never have things go back to the way the used to be, or the way we want them. In a whole, the hip hop music scene seems to have evolved a long way since the 80’s, and it won’t stop changing now. Observing what is hot in new hip hop songs will maybe give us keys to what the trends can hold in the future. New rap could have a more electronic element to it, and could even have vocals stylized in a way as to completely remove human elements and familiarity from the track. For more on what the future could hold for hip hop, read our article on hip hop music in the future.
