ICYMI: Check out ourĀ previous entries/playlists from the 1990s:

After the horrible news last week of the passing of Prodigy (@PRODIGYMOBBDEEP), we took a brief hiatus from our 90’s rap playlist series in order to mourn and pay tribute to the Infamous P! In spite of the fact that he had been battling sickle cell anemia since he was a child, it was still a shock to learn that one of hip hop’s greatest MC’s had passed away at the age of 42.

ICYMI: Check out ourĀ previous entries/playlists centred uponĀ 1991 and 1992, respectively!

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
