Every week we'll be posting content from the Mother City courtesy of the HeadWarmaz. This is the first episode and from the brothers on the other side.
You can stream it below.
It’s a hip hop head thing (we are all guilty of it) – allowing our nostalgia and veneration of the old school make us overlook the dope shit from this era. The old school was dope, yes, but I believe there’s a lot of great music being made now but it ends up slipping through the cracks because there’s a lot of garbage flooding the scene. But by dismissing the new school completely, you are not helping hip hop grow.
Being a radio show, it’s our job to sift through the bullshit and bring you the best. On last week’s episode, we curated a playlist of tracks from the last two or three years we believe are future classics – basically tracks you’ll still be bumping 10 years from now. With the help of the community, who made their recommendations earlier in the week, we made a list of about 30 future classics. Of course, these aren’t the only ones (there’s loads others) but we only had two hours.
