Rhapsody Hip-Hop Week 2013

Welcome to Rhapsody
Play any song, anytime, anywhere.

And now, we offer a crazy huge celebration of the biggest, wildest, weirdest, most polarizing music genre the world has perhaps ever known. From its humble beginnings (disco breaks! N.Y.C. street classics!) to its various regional permutations (Texas! Atlanta! The Bay Area!) to its current megastars (Kendrick Lamar! Rick Ross!), here's a massive slate of playlists, album guides and personal essays devoted to rap music in all its glorious forms. Oh, and did you know Kanye West has a new album out? We've got a few things to say about that, too. Thanks to Rhapsody Hip-Hop Editor Mosi Reeves for putting this together; enjoy yourselves.
