The Best Rap Songs Of 2019 So Far

Hip-Hop Best Rap Songs 2019, Popular Rap Songs 2019, Best Hip-Hop Songs 2019, Rap Songs That Went Viral In 2019.
At this point, hip-hop has officially become the most dominant genre in popular music. It's a genre so robust at the moment it's hard to keep up with the prolific output of rappers who can become the next big name seemingly moments after uploading a single to SoundCloud. No one can blame you for not being able to keep up, so check back with Hip-Hop Universe throughout the year as we run down the best rap songs of 2019.
The most popular rap songs are in most cases considered iconic because of their influence in the genre. Which songs are able to remind you of a year?
Hip-hop has arguably been the best genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. Hip-hop has two phases, old school and new school each of which give off a different vibe. These phases can be divided into Mumble Rap and Lyrical Rap.
Old School “Hip-Hop” has music based prevalently on African American culture. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E often rap about the struggles of growing up in a racialized environment and the work they put in to get where they are today.
In popular songs such as “Changes” by Tupac and “Juicy” by Biggie Smalls, the artists explain how they went from “negative to positive” as Biggie put it.
Old school hip-hop is still popular today and is regarded as “classic” by many hip-hop fans.
“New school” hip-hop has different types of lyrics. Rappers from today’s generation sing typically about girls, money, and cars they have. Some even sing about how they do drgs, drink alchl, and party which sets a bad example for some listeners. Some of these rappers today did not have it as hard as rappers back in the old days. Also Hip-hop artists now are racially diverse, so African American culture is not necessarily found in music today.
People who grew up listening to Tupac, Biggie, Eazy-E, and so on typically do not enjoy hip-hop in today’s era. Songs written when rap was introduced were lyrically better because rappers were able to tell a story using words that rhyme and flow.
Some songs are also more appealing to fans because they can relate to the struggles their favorite rappers faced.
People of this generation are used to listening to new school hip-hop which is the most played genre on the radio. These same fans reject old school Hip-Hop as a part of the music genre. There are even rappers who know nothing about the most influential Hip-Hop artists.
Growing up listening to Eminem has caused me to fall in love with him as an artist. He introduced me to Hip-Hop. But I noticed a change in the music industry. Artists wanted to be part of the mainstream industry and they had to change their music to fit into the mainstream category.
Because of new artists in hip-hop, many lessen known artists are rarely noticed. These artists are said to be “underground.” Underground rappers usually do not make it big because they have music related to the messages embodied by old school hip-hop artists would say.

  • Transition Universe is back!!! Let me start off by saying that a large portion of songs made it on the list because of the beat (first half of the video). You can probably guess which songs I actually like, the majority of those songs are in the second half of the video. But for those songs that didn't make the list: I once again was forced to leave out songs due to copyright. Here are some examples: Racks In The Middle, RNP, Rodeo, Remember The Name, Coming Home. If you want me to praise you and your songs, you have to make sure to not take down my videos... simple as that. So tell your artists to leave your boi alone. But yeah, I included songs that have simple lyrics but good beats. I still prefer lyrical rap but at the same time I don't want to discredit great producers that make hits. They're doing a good job, but rappers should still improve their lyrics. The lyrical songs are in the second half of the video. The first half was included because of the beat (and for 10 year olds who will throw a fit if I leave them out). But everybody has a different definition of "best songs". I tried to create a video for everybody, not just people who think the way I do about the mainstream...The transitions are slick as always, some have a connection/deeper meaning to it. Have fun analyzing it. I had to leave out a lot of songs because of copyright. Which songs are your favorites? Is 2019 a good year for Hip-Hop? Who is the king of rap in 2019?

    • I’m sure you only heard his worst song(moonlight) and sad lmao he was a great lyricist in his early days, listen to Riot for example, and then in late 2017 he helped pave the way for melodic rappers and then to top all that off he proved he is extremely versatile with ?. Also, don’t judge him on any of the work after his death because they are incomplete songs
