My top picks:

Hip Hop/ Rap 

If I’m perfectly honest I don’t like how this genre of music is referred to as hip hop/rap because the name sounds like you’re one of those kids that’s trying to act all gangster when you tell someone what music you listen to. Idk.

J. Cole 

  • Crooked Smile

The music video for this song is so sad, it is about a little girl that gets shot during a drug raid. This is a true story and it is so tragic. Even if you don’t like this genre of music or the artist just watch it.

  • G.O.M.D
  • She Knows

There are other J.Cole songs but for now these are my favourites.

Childish Gambino

  • Sweatpants
  • 3005
  • Telegraph Ave.
  • Sober
  • The Worst Guys
  • Stand Tall
  • Terrified
  • Baby Boy
  • Me and your Mama
  • California

Childish Gambino’s real name is Donald Glover and his comedic shows are actually quite funny.

Kendrick Lamar

  • Alright
  • God is a Gangster
  • i
  • Cartoons and Cereal
  • For free?
  • King Kunta
  • M.A.A.D City

  • Wolves (I am aware that this is in LoP but I think this song does not get enough recognition.)

Willow Smith

I know that a lot of people don’t like her but her music is so good!

  • Female Energy
  • Rose Golden
  • Find you Somewhere
  • All her songs on Willow Frequencies on YouTube

Jaden Smith

I get that people don’t like him either but…

  • Fallen
