Kazak’s Picks: The Dazzlers 2021 (Rap & Hip-Hop)

Clockwise from top left: Fistfulofgreens by YUNGMORPHEUS & ewonee (Thumbing Thru Foliage painting by Okey Ofomata), damn RIght by AUDREY NUNA (A Liquid Breakfast artwork), No Tricks by Tanya Morgan (Don & Von artwork), and End of the Road by Noga Erez (KIDS album artwork by Dudi Hasson).

Whether it’s the wordplay, beats, or samples, rap and its many subgenres provide more moments of jaw-dropping inspiration than maybe any other type of music in the twenty-first century. Enjoy this playlist of the best bars and flows set to music in 2021.

The format is simple: tracks from the the past month feature at the beginning of the playlist before turning to highlights from the rest of the year (in no particular order). If you’d like to hear the genre’s most recent gems, check out the first five to ten tracks. If you want to explore the year as a whole, simply hit that shuffle button, sit back, and enjoy!

New additions will be included on a monthly basis. If there’s a track that you think is the pinnacle of pop music this year but isn’t featured here, please don’t hesitate to let me know about it at thebayingofkazak@gmail.com.

WARNING: All tracks are completely uncensored. A number of them contain explicit language that is unsuitable for children, NSFW topics, discussions of potentially triggering subjects, and/or political commentary that may offend.
