In case you don’t know, June is nationally recognized for being “Black Music Month.” African-Americans have contributed to the world of music tremendously. From the likes of Sammy Davis to Billie Holiday to Whitney Houston, African-Americans have left a profound impact on music, that will timelessly inspire future musicians to come.

Ever since I can remember I’ve always been a HUGE fan of Hip Hop music. No I’m not talking about rap music. I mean pure Hip Hop, and yes there is a difference. Real Hip Hop makes you feel something, has a thought provoking topic, mixed with dope lyricism. Much like myself hip hop is unapologetically expressive.

Hip Hop forces me to take off my rose-colored glasses and view the world from everyone’s point of view. It reminds me of the progress we’ve made as a people and the change that still needs to happen. It pushes me to strive harder for my dreams. And when I just need to vibe out and relax my mind, hip hop can do that for me too.

In honor of “Black Music Month,” I’ve decided to put together a playlist of some of my favorite hip hop songs, check it out below!

1.“Heard ‘Em Say” x Kanye West ft. Adam Levine

2.“Sing About Me” x Kendrick Lamar

3.“On and On” x Joey Bada$$ ft. Maverick Sabre and Dyemond Lewis

4.“Electric Relaxation” x A Tribe Called Quest

5.“Forbidden Fruit” x J. Cole ft. Kendrick Lamar

6.“Testify” x Common

7.“Break You Off” x The Roots ft. Musiq

9.“Memories” x Big Sean

10.“The Pessimist” x Wale ft. J. Cole
