AWKWORD Presents: The Top 50 Hip Hop/Rap Songs of April

This month's mix blends boombap, political, international, bully rap and even a pop rap song from a diverse selection of artists both well established and unknown. You might hear something you missed from an all-time great (e.g., the Phife Dawg tribute from KRS-One); or you might discover an artist who becomes a new favorite (e.g., Chisom). At the very least, you’ll rock out to the “Dirty Cops” remix from Onyx and Snowgoons, and you’ll get hooked on another self-produced gem from rapper/singer Russ. Enjoy. And be sure to download the Audiomack app so you can play this on your commute.
