It's that time of year where I dig through my digital crates, and finish off the year with my annual Hip Hop round up.
It's been an interesting and exciting year for Hip Hop. Whilst there have been the usual club smashes from MMG, YMCMB, French Montana, G.O.O.D. Music, etc, there have been a load of dope artists coming through, such as Joey Bada$$, Angel Haze, Danny Brown, Raider Klan, and many more.
I've tried to keep a good balance of mainstream/credible/underground, as well as a couple of dope album cuts to keep everyone happy, with music from Nas, Sean Price, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Angel Haze, Tyga, Slaughterhouse, N.O.R.E., Game, Kanye West, TNGHT, 2 Chainz and more.
Honourable mentions go to JJ Doom, Action Bronson, Spaceghostpurrp/Raider Klan, Roc Marciano, Oddisee, El-P, Homeboy Sandman, Ab-Soul, Piff Gang, ItsNate and Big K.R.I.T., who have all put out some great music this year. It's a shame I couldn't squeeze everyone into 70 minutes' worth of audio!
As a bonus, I'll also be pressing up 300 of these on CD. If you'd like one, just give me a shout and I'll send one out free of charge, provided the world doesn't end this Friday, of course!
Thanks for all the support this year, I hope you enjoy the mix! Big up.
