Tuned Up Best Hip-Hop Of August
Black Thought and Danger Mouse

August was a stellar month for hip-hop. We saw two collaborations between legendary emcees and unparalleled beatmakers. Black Thought put out one of his best releases to date with Danger Mouse producing the beats on Cheat Codes. And Roc Marciano and Alchemist absolutely slayed with The Elephant Man’s Bones. These two will be battling for AOTY in the hip-hop sphere. Your Old Droog released his fourth project of the year on YODNEY DANGERFIELD. And Backwoodz Studioz continues to put out some of the most interesting and boundary pushing artists, this month from AKAI SOLO and ShrapKnel. Below is a roundup of some of the best hip-hop that came out in August. What made your rotation? What did I miss?
