Best of 2015: Rap & Hip-Hop

Alright folks this is the last one--the last of my "Best of 2015" series. I started out with my favorite instrumental hip-hop and now we've come full circle and it's time to bring out the rappers.

I'm a sucker for that old school boom-bap sound and 2015 was another great year for bringing back the boom-bap. We had new albums by classic rappers like Ghostface Killah, Blackalicious and Slum Village. Plus a whole set of new artists, like Sugar Tongue Slim, Myke BoganOddissee, and Chance the Rapper, keeping the tradition alive.

Stream it all live February 9th, 5pm-6pm CST right here on KRUU radio.

 

On tonight's edition of After Hours I'll be playing my favorite afrobeat, brass and jazz-funk from 2015. Stream it live February 6th, 10pm-12am CST right here on KRUU radio.
