Because of the Internet, Hip Hop radio online has changed the way we tune in and hear the latest tracks.
This includes up and coming, mainstream and underground artists.
Gone are the days of recording your favorite jams every Friday or Saturday night with the 90 minute cassette tape.
Additionally, we’re no longer obligated to listen to commercial radio’s cookie cutter playlist. With streaming, terrestrial radio has found itself facing competition now that music lovers have more of a say in what we listen to (provided one’s connected to a service).
Rinse FM – personally recommended for open minded listeners. Rinse is located in London so expect UK Hip Hop and Grime tunes. Check out shows from SK Vibemaker and Sir Spyro (The Grime Show).
Speaking Of London….
The Rap Show With Charlie Sloth – known for the Fire In The Booth freestyle sessions, Charlie Sloth has made a name for himself playing exclusive and up and coming artists from the UK and North America.
DJ Semtex – another top choice show for Hip Hop anywhere in the world (my opinion). A mix of mainstream, up and comers as well as exclusive interviews from US and UK artists.
Tim Westwood – veteran DJ with a lengthy resume. Variety of genres including mainstream.
Cosmic Kev – Philadelphia’s veteran DJ. Mainstream, up and comers and exclusive tracks. Weeknights, 7:00 pm-Midnight.
