Believe it or not I sometimes actually do the NTS show myself. This month I decided to loosely mix some of my favorite rap songs of the year so far. Extremely incomplete (my apologies to the DMV Rap Scene and Swapa and Chief Keef/Mike-Will and and and) but it’s a glimpse at how I’ve been hearing 2024.
