Hey hey. We got a brand new playlist for you. This one is the best of Canadian hip hop from before the Drake/OVO explosion.
I was very frustrated with much of this process as I was hoping to include a lot more tracks. I wanted to represent female rappers like Michie Mee and none of her pioneering blend of rap and reggae is available on Spotify. I wanted to put some key tracks like “Comin’ Up” by Saukrates but you can’t find them on Spotify.
It makes me wonder if things that aren’t on Spotify will just disappear from the public consciousness because they just won’t be accessible to anyone but music heads like me. This is some history erasing stuff.
Basically I’m very sorry there are no women in this playlist as the primary artist on tracks.
PS Let me know of anything I missed!
