Although rap isn’t generally a category of music you look at when evaluating good headphones, I’ve found that good headphones can make rap sound so much better.
Currently using the Campfire Audio Atlas and listening to these songs and I can say that I am having a lot of fun!
This song is a fun summer tune. Nice beat with a catchy hook.
Witt Lowry is easily one of my favourite up and coming rappers. Reminds me a lot of a young, angry Eminem without the homophobic slurs and the like.
Watsky is a rapper out of San Francisco that is also up and coming. He’s got some great stuff.
NF has now hit the mainstream with his latest album Perception. You may recognize him for the song “Let you Go”. NF is interesting because he does not swear (he is a Christian hip-hop artist) and when he was coming up he refused to do multiple collaborations with other artists who did want to swear on the tracks.
Remix of the Chainsmokers of “Closer”. I would say this is an interesting take on it and its worked its way into multiple playlists of mine.
Another from Huey Mack. This one is fairly explicit so if that isn’t your thing I wouldn’t recommend listening.
This song is fantastic. Really enjoy it and has an inspiring beat.
I was a competitive freestyle skiier when I was younger and songs like this were always in the videos we would watch of the pros.
An older track. It’s got a great beat and a good hook.
I’m a big fan of most of Eminem’s music (Relapse and his new album excluded). This is one of his earlier songs from the 90s. Hard to recognize that its even him.
This is hands down my favourite Lupe Fiasco song. It exudes the style of “champagne flow” rap that Biggie was famous for.
A lot more tracks to post but I wanted to hear your thoughts first. You’ll notice there isn’t any mumble rap in there. I am not a fan but if you are there’s nothing wrong with that!
Do you listen to rap? Do you like to listen to it with your better headphones and if so, how do you find the song changes?
