Every week, Myles McCaulskey picks his Top 5 favourite hip-hop tracks that he's been listening to over the past week. We reveal the list right here, every Wednesday.
1. Jay Z – The Story of OJ
This one is self-explanatory. The Story of OJ is the breakout track off 4:44 for me and one I think I will continue to play for some time. The truthful lyrics, the old school sample from Nina Simone & the well thought through video gives the audience an insight into a Jim Crow style America that is still relevant today.
2. Calvin Harris – Cash Out (feat. Schoolboy Q, PartyNextDoor & D.R.A.M)
Been waiting for Calvin’s album and this was one of the songs that sparked my intrigue. Calvin didn’t disappoint. Groovy haha!
3. Calvin Harris – Holiday (feat. Snoop Dogg, John Legend & Takeoff)
I wanted to see if Takeoff would flourish on his own. He did. For me his verse was better than Snoop Dogg’s and that’s a big deal!
4. Cadet – No More Letters
The final series of letters between Cadet & Krept, who if you didn’t know are cousins. Not much else to say about this one!
5. Donaeo – Polo (feat. Wretch 32, Cadet & Louis Rei) (Remix)
Donaeo is a legend in UK music and he’s changed up his sound and always kept it fresh. Simple, effective, rhythmic. I like Polo a lot.
