Relive The Joy of the Blog Era: An Audiomack Essentials Playlist

By Donna-Claire Chesman on

Some fans yearn for the Golden Era, but the Blog Era is hip-hop’s most diverse renaissance.

While almost every fan of hip-hop has a love for the Golden Era, the celebration of the Blog Era is unanimous — we all lived through it together. Current chart-topping acts like A$AP Rocky and Drake were once shooting off emails and hawking mixtapes in the digital wild, wild west. A simpler time, Audiomack has put together a playlist of 111 best songs from hip-hop’s Blog Era. It’s a nostalgia trip.

Aside from the biggest names in hip-hop, the playlist features cult classic heroes Asher Roth, Charles Hamilton, and Blu and Exile. Between some classic Kid Cudi tracks, we have a selection of Kendrick Lamar cuts, featuring Kdot’s best Lil Wayne impression. Once upon a time, Mac Miller was still an aimless frat rapper, and ScHoolboy Q was just learning how to balance his aggression with his storytelling.
