I was putting together a playlist for a friend as an introduction to the more chilled out side of American rap, and I thought I’d put it up here to share with you all. Most of the tracks here are stone-cold classics but there might be a few you don’t know, either way it’s a relaxed playlist that’s carefully sequenced for a smooth listen. It’s mostly 90s stuff so I’m not exactly aiming for cutting edge here. Anyway, hope you all enjoy it!
