If you haven’t heard by now, Guerilla Union had to cancel the Rock The Bells tour stops in New York and Washington DC due to poor ticket sales. Frankly, that’s a shame and is a sobering reality as to what the current musical landscape is right now – one that’s dominated by electro, trap, and EDM. In comparison, the Mad Decent Block Party did extremely well and with more tour destinations. So what gives? Is good hip hop dead? I mean, look at the line-up that RTB had in store for heads: J. Cole, Wu-Tang Clan & ODB’s hologram, Black Hippy, Pusha T, Rakim, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony & Eazy E’s hologram, Kid Cudi, etc. That’s a stacked line up right there! We just can’t let good hip hop die a quiet death. So this week’s Friday Five is a rally via playlist of just some good ol hip hop. Crack rocks, choppas, Molly, and Maybachs all got left back on Thursday.
