Summer Hip Hop Playlist

My playlist yesterday got over  100 views, that's a record for me, thanks guys. As I promised some of you yesterday, today I'm doing a hip hop only summertime playlist. I hope you enjoy this one. I think tomorrow I'll make an electronika playlist if the views stay up like they have been. So, with out further adieu, here we go.

Track 1: Sunshine by Atmosphere http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KI2fy_b-m_I (Of course this is on here, this IS the summer hip hop song. Rivaled by none, it's perfection)

Track 2: Gin & Juice by Snoop Dogg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6TUhx2wX0M (With Snoop's west coast flow with the Dr. Dre beat this song was destined to be chill, it's truly a classic)

Track 3: Ms. Jackson by OutKast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYxAiK6VnXw (OutKast is amazing, Andre 3000 is amazing, this is amazing)

Track 4: Daydreamin' by Lupe Fiasco http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GQjYPWDcmg (I love Lupe Fiasco, I hate Lasers, but I love Food and Liquor and The Cool. This is hip hop)

Track 5: Ghetto Gospel by Tupac Shakur http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxR4AweLeXE (I decided to only use one of Pac's songs, so I chose this one, but they're all incredible)

Track 6: G Code by Geto Boyz http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeLm_hDJjqQ (Such a good song, also, there's totally a midget rapper in this group, how can you beat that?)

Track 7: My Block by Scarface http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Odq2Mvvw6XA&feature=related (I love the piano riff, a homage to his block, it's both a good look and a bad one. Real nice)

Track 8: Today Was A Good Day by Ice Cube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CPlF-IEkXQ (Is this really the same guy that is in Are We There Yet? He's come a long way. Great song though)

Track 9: Nuthin' But A G Thang by Dr. Dre http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhr5UBZh1rY&feature=related (Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and the rest of Death Row throws down on this song, off of one of the chillest rap albums of all time, The Chronic by Dr. Dre)

Track 10: Road To Zion by Damian Marley ft. Nas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLU_ymaLSPI (Nas and Bob's son Damian make the song that honestly sums up all of my beliefs, this song is perfect.)

That's it for this one. Keep checking in, I'll post more stuff. Keep on listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen.
