My favourite rap/hip-hop track of January 2014 has been Eminem’s “Not Afraid” from his album Recovery (“Space Bound” is another favourite from that album). The beat is dope, the song+hook I find so uplifting and inspirational!
Here (above) is a lyric video of Eminem’s “Not Afraid”. And there is a reason its the lyric video and not the official! Listen (or look) carefully to the lyrics… They are some of Em’s best.
These are some of the other raps I’ve listened to lots this month (most quite different to Not Afraid)
Some of the Runners Up
Public Enemy- Party For Your Right To Fight(Great song, the samples in this one are epic!)
KRS-One & Bumpy Knuckles- I’m a Be Back
