OK SO I MADE A PLAYLIST: Yoke Lore’s Guide to Hip Hop

Yoke Lore made a playlist for us. We have a feeling hip hop is a big influence for him…

OK SO I MADE A PLAYLIST: Yoke Lore’s Guide to Hip Hop

So I don’t resume to know everything that’s going on, but I love hip hop with a passion and try to keep an eye on people that Kanye and Drake are ripping off.

Hip Hop is a huge part of American culture and a huge part of American history which like many art forms has it’s roots in community identity and subtle insurrection. With the rap demagogues controlling the radio, branding themselves, and becoming pop stars, hip hop is alienated from its foundations in the subversive music of early America.

Like Folk or Hardcore, Hip Hop has in the past always been about and for the community. With Beyonce writing 6 songs about her cheating husband, and Kanye ostentatiously releasing songs called ‘I love Kanye’…the community gets left behind. These are some artists that I think really represent and speak for their communities. Whether or not these songs themselves are socially aware, these artists are (in my humble opinion) keeping real hip hop alive.

Kodak Black – This is the slowest hardest weirdest catchiest song here. Trap gold. Kodak is huuugggee in the south and hasn’t really gotten to much airplay but his shows are nuts and they’re enormous. He really does something no one else does. Get into it.

Anderson Paak – I love this song. This is the banger. This is a real thing. You all know those people who are like fiends when the drugs come out. I love how he takes something so simple and kind of funny and makes it bang, makes it important. He could say anything and it would mean something.

Jay Electronica – This is JAY ELECTRONICA and MOBB DEEP TOGETHER…there’s nothing more to say.

Deathgrips – this song is kind of the dark horse? black sheep? whatever. It’s not like the rest, but it eludes to the bands relationship to hardcore which is so important to their whole identity so I thought i would throw this in there for fans of Guillotine who want to know where the hell it came from.

SZA – Ugh so smooth. ‘I love you like I like to get high’ — perfect.

SZA – I couldn’t resist putting another track from this EP up. Its an old EP that she did and I think she got signed and is going to be huge and those labels will put their claws in, but for now I just want to bask in it.

Thundercat – This song does everything and so does Thundercat. He is almost singlehandedly keeping jazz alive in modern hip hop. Thank you BRAINFEEDER for keeping the world safe.

Princess Nokia – Princess Nokia is dope and she writes a lot about trying to be a strong woman in a world dominated by the glorification of weak women. I dig it and I think its important.

Ratking – These are some friends of mine from NYC. My folk band Poor Remy used to open for them in BK basement shows and we’d thrash together. I was always amazed by the kind of devotion they inspired in these city kids. They sing about their city and its troubles. They were of the people and the people love them for always remembering it.

Antwon – he just keeps it weird, and its important to keep it weird. pc.

‘Safety’ is the 3rd offering from Yoke Lore’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Far Shore’, due out today, 6 May, via B3SCI Records. He’ll also make his US live debut this summer in NYC at The Well on 8 June.
