Maestro Maven - Hip-Hop/Rap
Top 24 East Coast Tracks...
East, West, South... it's all a distinct sound in Hip-Hop and Rap, which simply marks the musical form as a sophisticated one. It doesn't take a trained ear to pick up on the differences and East Coast hip-hop sound has a little more grit - it's street corner music, concrete jungle vibes... but there's a conscious didactic as well. I can't say that I'm anything more than a dilettante in any particular musical genre, so these are my picks for the best East Coast music. I'm sure there are big MCs and groups that will be missing. Maybe I'll run into them some day. In most ways these tracks are old school east coast.
