How they Was Rappin’ in 1991

Rap music is the best.

Moving forward, I’ve decided to curate some Spotify (@Spotify) playlists specific to the most integral years of hip-hop, startingĀ with the year of 1991.

Unfortunately, there are someĀ significant gaps in the SpotifyĀ catalogue. Due to this, IĀ was unable to include cuts off landmark albums such as De La Soul‘s (@WeAreDeLaSoul) De La Soul is Dead, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth‘s All Souled Out EP, Tim Dog‘s iconic Penicillin on Wax, Godfather Don‘s Hazardous,Ā Words from the Genius by the Genius / GZAĀ (@theRealGZA), and From Pyramids to Projects by Two Kings in a Cipher. And in spite of its divisive reputation, it would have been nice to have had the option to include a track off ofĀ Big Daddy Kane‘s Prince of Darkness.

Nevertheless, at 2Ā½ hours long and 35 tracks, hopefully theĀ playlist below provides you with a comprehensive look intoĀ how theĀ hip-hop landscape was operating back in ’91.
