I hope two weeks was enough time for all of our Spotify (@Spotify) streamers 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:
- GOOD: A phenomenal year for the genre with landmark debuts from the likes of Nas (@Nas), the Notorious B.I.G., Outkast (@Outkast), the Artifacts, O.C. (@therealocizzle), Jeru the Damaja (@Jeruthedamaja)
- BAD: Spotify drops the ball AGAIN with some very prominent releases from 1994 nowhere to be found within their (Canadian) catalogue – continue reading below the playlist for more on these…
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 cuts. Due to the aforementioned absences, we’ve pared the list back down to 35 tracks (from 40) which got us right back to around that familiar 2½ hour mark that’s served us so well up to this point.
We’re also back onto our #WaybackWednesday shit for this week – happy hump day!
If not for Spotify‘s unfortunate limitations and related licensing standoffs, these classic cuts would have also been included:
In your opinion, did I miss any other significant tracks from ’94?
