In the later half of the s, hip-hop music officially became the most dominate genre in America. And meanwhile, the line between hip-hop and pop has become almost non-existent, as pop music adopted the production, writing, and vocals of rap. But, this year marked a time when the wide influence of hip-hop went even wider. The likes of Rosalia and J Balvin push the sounds of flamenco and Reggaeton further into the forefront of American mainstream music, Lil Nas X is challenging dominant genre labeling and blurring the lines between hip-hop and country music. This is what makes rap the most exciting style of music today. At times it can be punk rock, it can be political, it can be global.

Chiraq Mogul is great. One of my favorite things about Lil B is how hard he puts on for lesser known Northern California places like Modesto, Santa Rosa, etc. Maryland's Lil Gray's got something here. The first song is called "Woosa" and is from his Pain EP. This was on Rucci's El Perro tape but deserves some late love. August 16,
Two of Baltimore's hottest teen rappers apply some substantial pressure on this one. Young Don is especially promising. Gucci Mane dropped "Vette Pass By" almost 15 years ago.
