Specially curated by Coach Q, Audiomack is proud to present the Hometown Heroes of Virginia.

Virginia is home to the gold standard of hip-hop: Missy Elliott, Pharrell, The Clipse, and more. The lilt and unique swagger of the state’s major acts has given way to a slew of classic albums and sonics that permeate hip-hop to this day. Virginia is dripping in hip-hop history and constantly moving music forward, and that same history is now informing a fresh crop of artists.

Specially curated by Coach Q, Audiomack is proud to present the Hometown Heroes of Virginia! A proven master of PR, with an eye for talent and dedicated ear to what makes Virginia hip-hop so special, Q serves as our guide through the state’s diverse and enriched rap scene.

Featuring Kali Uchis, Huey Supreme, TGUT, and more, this playlist showcases the breadth of sonics coming out of VA. Between raucous trap tunes, dedicated hustle anthems, impeccable R&B jams, and a through-line of pattering percussion and snarling charisma, it’s easy to see how Virginia established itself as a hub of culture.
