Hello, and Happy New Year! 2019 was an excellent year for hip-hop music, with titans such as J. Cole (Dreamville) and Young Thug dropping high-quality projects, only to have their efforts matched by hot newcomers such as DaBaby and Roddy Ricch, who both dropped their major label debuts. We here at Basketball Society curated a playlist consisting of our favorite songs of 2019 so that you can have some new workout music! It features artists such as YBN Cordae, Drake, Benny the Butcher, Lil’ Uzi Vert, and many more!
This month’s playlist was thrown together by BJ Boyer (@wcb94) and Aram Cannuscio (@AC_Unit_), who sorted through their favorite albums of the year and picked a few songs from each to add to the compilation.
Some of Boyer’s favorites included Freddie Gibbs’ Bandana, Young Nudy/Pi’erre Bourne’s Sli’merre and ZUU by Denzel Curry.
The Lost Boy by YBN Cordae, Eve by Rapsody and Rick Ross’ Port of Miami 2 all ranked high on Cannuscio’s list, making for a nice blend of hip-hop that touches all corners of the genre.
Each month, we will be providing a playlist for you to use when you are working out, preparing for a game, or just going to shoot around/play some pick-up ball with your friends. Enjoy, and feel free to give us feedback on the playlist as well as artists you’d like to see included in future editions!
