Beyond the Weezy-Yeezy-and-Jay-Z trio dominating the mainstream rap game, there are thousands of rappers who don’t get nearly enough exposure. The ones I’ve chosen below are all pretty chill songs with simple musical backdrops highlighting the intelligent lyrics.
My favorite from this list is Lowkey, a young rapper from London who uses rap as a tool to expose social injustice and political hypocrisy. In that sense, he is very similar to Immortal Technique.

- Download Gas Pipes – Tum Tum
- Download I Ain’t Turning Back – Thi’sl
- Download Word Smith – Chino XL
- Download All Good – The Warriors ATX

With Wiz Khalifa producing new music almost every day it’s pretty hard to keep up. The guy is a music making machine. So I have decided to compile a Wiz Playlist for you to get your Wiz Fix.
Roll up, Light Up and enjoy the worlds most productive Stoner.
Starting from slightly older, I really enjoyed this song off Wiz’s ‘Flight School.’

These guys are among the best rappers out there now. They don’t have any fake attitude or “I’m the shit” kind of lines. Instead, they deliver lyrics that tell a story, that have a meaning behind them.
FYI: they’re the ones who wrote the lyrics to Airplanes by B.O.B.
