Welcome to September Rap! This playlist is a collection of various subgenres and eras of rap throughout the years.

 

C.R.E.A.M.-Wu-Tang Clan

              Cash rules everything around me. No truer words can be said in this modern society. Even through a pandemic, we are ruled by the all mighty dollar. Though the message of this song has been reduced to a random slogan amongst fans and wannabes, the instrumentals cannot be overshadowed. The raw piano carries the melody and beautifully contrasts the gritty and roughed vocals.

 

Rich White Girls-Mansionz

              If you havenʻt heard this duo yet, get on it. Blackbear and Mike Posner hit back at the immature and selfish girls who flirt and tease them for clout but cannot accept the life the artists could provide them. Constantly traveling and moving from hotel room to hotel room is never enough for these “rich white girls” who are used to only the finest things and never footing the bill. This laid back, R&B hit is only a glimpse at what the two can accomplish together.

 

Ysl-Koi

              Why do I waste my time crying over someone when my life is filled with luxurious things? This question haunted and inspired Koiʻs lead single off the album, before itʻs too late. A wake-up call and a pre-party track all in one, the slower beginning is hit by the hook and a more upbeat back tempo.

 

Livinʻ In a Dream-The Neighbourhood ft. Nipsey Hustle

Released just 5 months before his death, Livin’ in a Dream shows off the effortless talents of rap legend Nipsey Hustle (RIP) and a somewhat hidden talent of the group’s frontman, Jesse Rutherford. The song’s opening loop abruptly transitions into melancholy vocals and sprinkles itself throughout the track.

 

Louis-Take A Daytrip ft. Jesse

       A timeless hype track. The lyrics and chorus are simple but impactful. The cadence of Jesse’s voice paired with the bursts of bright beats rounds out and brings the song to life. Many road trips have been brought back from silence when we hear the producer’s vocal watermark.
