5 Hip-Hop Artists You Should Listen To In 2019

They're being slept on....


These artists are deserving of much more praise than they receive! Be on the lookout for these artists as they start to gain more following.

1. Aminé

You may know him from his hot song "Caroline", but he has so many more songs to offer! He released a small album this year titled ONEPOINTFIVE, which contains 34 minutes of hip-hop beauty. He does a great job of showing his different sides of his personality through his honest raps throughout the album. The song, "DR.WHOEVER", goes into his struggle with depression.

Not only that, but his first album, Good For You, contains a great song for every mood. It even contains great features by Kehlani and Ty Dolla Sign. He is doing something in hip-hop that can be seen as revolutionary. He is showing honesty throughout his songs and proving that anyone can suffer from mental illness. Listening to both these albums is highly recommended and you can find a song for any mood.

2. Saba

Another artist that shows a lot of honesty throughout his music. His most recent album, Care for Me, dives deep into the struggles he had growing up in a city like Chicago. He features another Chicago native, Chance the Rapper, in "LOGOUT", when he discusses the struggles of our generation addicted to social media.

He also has a much longer first album titled Bucket List Project containing a lot more chill and relaxing songs, such as "Photosynthesis". You can hear Saba's conflict with his life and the way things are setup in society as he explains his thoughts. I would recommend this artist for someone who is interested in sad rap and having their feelings brought out through music.

3. Noname

Noname keeps her real name hidden in order to keep her audience focused on her music, rather than her name. She is a young female rapper who seems to be forgotten because of her melodic and cute raps. She just recently released an album titled Room 25 in which she explains how heartbreak felt for her. In her previous project, Telefone, she included a lot of features and created a safe sounding album. It always makes me feel calm and content, which is why it will be a go to album during the springtime for me.

4. Smino

Smino has raps that just make you want to dance. He makes really groovy upbeat songs that can be the background for any party or get together. A lot of his songs flow together well and you don't even realize that you've gone through the whole album. His most recent album, NOIR, includes many different forms of his voice throughout. His music does a great job of uplifting me and putting me in a good mood.

5. Jaden Smith

As the son of Will Smith, this 20 year old rapper gets forgotten about most of the time. He has released 4 albums since 2016 and has even created his own record label called MSFTSrep. One of his best songs, in my opinion, was released just recently on his new album, The Sunset Tapes. This album encases one of my favorite songs of the year "Yeah Yeah." I could literally have this song on repeat all day. I highly recommend giving Jaden Smith a listen!

Overall, these artists deserve some more love! Most of them are young and upcoming and stand for great things. Try to freshen up your music library with a few new artists going into 2019.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
