Music of Oregon: Rap & Hip-Hop

Updated: Dec 24, 2020

Our last playlist of local music, Dance Pop of Oregon, brought the energy up, so we figured we would keep with that upbeat vibe! Please note this is a NSFW playlist, meaning many of these songs are explicit and might be a bit much for the office. Unless you work somewhere cool.

This weekend's playlist: Rap & hip-hop.

The playlist has some old jams and some that are brand new. It has some big names and some you might not have heard before. All in all, you'll find some bouncy beats and flowing bars from the local hip-hop scene. Show support for Oregon musicians by kicking back this weekend and grooving to these tracks -- or work them into your weekly listening.

We here at Curbside recognize that each genre is sprawling and broad. These playlists will try to be a variety of styles along that wide spectrum, with the purpose of encompassing the Oregon music scene. Did we miss something? Let us know on our website here.
