[Hip/Hop Horray] The June 2010 Hip/Hop Playlist


Off the upcoming Finally Famous Volume 3: B.I.G. mixtape. Big Sean has that attitude packed flow, carefully placing emphasis on his words, and he’s often credited for coming up with the flow that Drake made famous.

Big Sean – “High Rise”

Now that he’s got Jay-Z’s stamp of approval, J.Cole is unstoppable. Hailing from North Carolina, he seems to get better every time he drops something, and he’s a smart dude – he went to St. John’s on an academic scholarship and actually graduated, unlike most rappers.

J.Cole – “Higher”


From their upcoming EP Lives and Vibes, I don’t know too much about them but Intalek is the rapper, Ritchcraft is the producer, and this jam rapidly rolls through the positives and negatives of money. The fast pace matches up with the hustle that most of us face chasing that paper on a daily basis.

Intalek & Ritchcraft – “Everyday Money”

From The Cool Kids‘ latest mixtape, Tacklebox, this is the smoothest track I’ve heard in a minute. Production by Chuck Inglish this song perfectly epitomizes the duo’s name – cool as fuck.

The Cool Kids – Flying Kites

From the upcoming album How I Got Over. Laid back and buttery, but the lyrics are strikingly real. This is the type of song that will help you make it through a tough morning and provide some motivation to make moves.

The Roots – “The Day” ft. Blu, Phonte, and Patty Crash
