Let me take you back to the lit days where the new wave of rap music got its start. Back to the time when “One Night” by Lil Yachty took over the internet. Back when Lil Uzi, 21 Savage, and Playboi Carti were at their prime. Old music heads may call it “mumble rap” but our generation calls it a new form of self-expression. This new generation of music doesn’t focus solely on the lyrical content of song but rather focuses on certain catchy words and melodies. It’s music that wasn’t accepted at first but now has taken over the music scene. If you need a reminder of what this genre encapsulates, I’ve got you covered. Featured in this playlist are artists like The Migos, Future, Famous Dex and more. Warning: by listening to this playlist you might get too lit — so please be aware of your surroundings.
