The 50 Best Hip-Hop Songs of All-Time

I don’t know why I decided to tackle such a huge music genre by doing a ‘best hip-hop songs of all-time’ post.

I planned on doing a top twenty, but it would cut off way too many records. Making the list was a lot of fun, but it took quite awhile to complete. I’m also opening myself up to comments critiquing my picks. 

Please critique away, friends.

I didn’t know what exactly to name this post because ‘best’ doesn’t necessarily fit the parameters of this list. I would say this list is more of a ‘most influential’ or even ‘most iconic’ hip-hop songs of all-time. There are a few exclusions to the rule since there are some tracks on here that aren’t really influential or iconic, but are just damn great. I just went with ‘best’ to make it easy.

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: February 2018

I usually watch ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ at least once every February. It’s one of my favorite movies. It blew my mind when I first saw it in the theater in February 2004. It still holds up and I recommend everyone give it a watch, or two.

This month’s playlist is pretty damn great. It didn’t take me very long to compile since new music has been finding ME lately. I could have expanded this month’s list by five or ten tracks, but I’m holding a few back in case I’m not so lucky next month.

I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter.

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: January 2018

Not a ton of music is released in December. Bands would most likely release their stuff in November or just wait until after the New Year to put out new music. It’s not a prime time for new music, since most people are just jamming to Mariah Carey’s Christmas album on repeat.

This month’s playlist took me longer to compile than most. I had to dig deep and found a few I overlooked the past two months. I found some gems and was worth the extra work.

Top 10 Pro Wrestling Matches of 2017

A couple weeks ago I started to put together a list of the best pro wrestling matches of 2017. I realized that the WWE didn’t have many spot on the list, so I compiled a list of best WWE matches of 2017.

Since I got that post out of the way for American mainstream wrestling fans, I finished my original list that is unsurprisingly heavy on New Japan matches.

Kazuchika Okada, Kenny Omega and Tetsuya Naito are the three-best wrestlers in the world and had impressive matches in New Japan this year. They take up a good portion of the list.

Which Okada/Omega match tops our list?

Here are our top ten pro wrestling matches of 2017 (and a few honorable mentions).

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: Best of 2017

I narrowed down 300+ tracks that appeared on our monthly ‘Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist’ posts to a total of the top 40 songs of the year. I felt like I needed to make a rule of one song per artist or this list would have been filled with multiple songs by Grouplove, Alvvays, Gordi and many more.

I would have loved to make our ‘Best of 2017’ list a top 20 or 25, but there were just too many bands and songs that I loved this year. I also made a separate Spotify playlist for the ‘Best of 2017’, as well as a YouTube playlist you can see at the bottom of the post.

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: December 2017

I had to dig a little deeper for this month’s playlist. There haven’t been a ton of new material released in the last two weeks. I still managed to find some great new music and re-discovered some songs I looked over this Fall.

I’m working on a ‘Best of 2017 Playlist’ as we speak. I’m trying to carve down the list of all of the songs that appeared on playlists this year (around 300) down to a respectable number. I’m shooting for a Top 25…let’s hope I can make it that small. It should be ready by mid-December.

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: November 2017

Just like last month, I’ve spent a good portion of this month listening to music. I spend more time researching and writing in the Fall/Winter due to football. I’m always bouncing around Spotify while researching betting trends. 

November is usually a big month for music as bands put out new albums before the holiday shopping season. I know I’m currently in love with both Alex Lahey and Gordi’s albums.

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: October 2017

I had fun with this month’s playlist. I have spent a ton of time alone with my Spotify this month. It was a nice distraction while writing some of my gambling posts this month. I let the betting lines marinate in my head a bit before I research games.

This might be the last month I use an ‘overtime’ section to add some extra tracks that missed last month’s playlist. I guess it depends how much new stuff gets released, but the Winter can be a slow time for new music.

I’m loving the new stuff from Alvvays, St. Vincent, Smallpools and Gang of Youths. They have been all-stars the last two playlists. Go check out the new stuff from those bands.
