So For those that don’t know, Boom Bap is a form of rap that was swung into the spotlight in the late 90s early 2000s with artists such as Mobb Deep, Onyx and even Early Wu-Tang leading the way to a gritty, brutal and street style of rapping that made you feel like you were actually in a rap battle or floating on cloud nine.
The genre was super popular within the skating communities and city-based teens and adults alike. Now the reason I’ve decided to dedicate an entire playlist to this genre is after ripping a big bong or smoking a silky smooth jay to Boom Bap can truly elevate and take you to a time of free love and ruthless street culture.
So let’s take it away with Billy Beats and my 10 favourite Boom Bap tracks of all time.
- Diamond D & The Psychotic Neurotics – Best Kept Secret
- O.G.C. (Originoo Gunn Clappaz) – Hurricane Starang / Danjer
- All City – The Actual

- Mobb Deep – Shook Ones Pt. 1
- Wu-Tang Clan – C.R.E.A.M.

Peace, love and success
