I hope two weeks was enough time for all of ourĀ Spotify (@Spotify) streamersĀ to fully digest our journey into ’93. Now that we’re just about set to take a look back to 1994, our trek comes with both good and bad news:

A bit of a disappointment as I had planned on integrating some lesser known faves of mine among the hits from the year. Nevertheless, I’m quite pleased with this playlist and still managed to incorporate a few overlooked and forgotten cuts. What a great year this was! Continue reading

Back again with a new retrospective rap playlist forĀ all of you Spotify (@Spotify) streamers out there, this time with a focus upon the landmarkĀ year of 1993. So much good music came out at this time that I had to bump the playlist upĀ from 35 tracks to 40. This makes this iterationĀ approximately 20 minutes longer than its predecessors –Ā I doubt the heads will complain!

Subsequent to my 1992 post going up, I made the decisionĀ toĀ moveĀ all futureĀ installments away from #WaybackWednesdayĀ in order toĀ position them asĀ #ThrowbackThursday posts going forward. However, upon awaking to the horrific news of Chris Cornell‘s (@chriscornell) unfortunate passing last week, I instead spent the previous Thursday reminiscing to Soundgarden‘s (@soundgarden) unbelievableĀ back-catalogue for the majority of the day (as well as several more thereafter). Another once-in-a-generation talent gone far too soon. R.I.P.Ā šŸ’”

Now, the last thing I want to do is turn this into a somber post when I’ve got such a badass playlist on tap for you. So grab some headphones and take a trekĀ back throughĀ one of the most solidĀ years ever in hip-hop! Continue reading
