I try to get all the best hip hop throughout the year. But there’s so much hip hop released every day (!) that it’s impossible to keep up. Hence, once every January I try to sit down and scrap the web for songs and albums that I missed.
On the note of summarizing the year, I scrolled through the playlist and felt that there’s a bit too much mainstream rap and hip hop in the list this past year. Although I believe it’s good music, Franklins is supposed to be more than that: it’s supposed to also put the spotlight on some fresh or overseen rappers in the genre. I will put extra effort to find that this coming year.
Hope you’ve had a good year!
Til’ next time.
