RSD '23 Genres: HIP-HOP

So, are we going to eventually re-name “pop” music? The genre is based on era, right? If you’ve turned on the radio to a Top Hits station in the past five years, you know just as well as the next guy that hip-hop has been dominating the airwaves for the pop title. We have some unassuming artists on the peak of this year’s Record Store Day list, and here they are!


Ol’ Dirty Bastard - “Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version”

hardcore hip hop


Twiztid - “Electric Lettuce”

horrorcore, hip hop, hard rock


Sonnyjim & the Purist - ““Barz Simpson” feat. MF DOOM & Jay Electronica”

I often admire the range of hip-hop as a genre. Check out some other styles continued below!
