tastes: from mainstream rappers like Lil' Wayne to underground hits
or old school hip hop, there's a station for everyone. Here's where
you can find the best hiphop radio stations today:
Pandora. This fantastic website lets you create your own radio
station based on an artist, song or musical style of your choosing.
For example, you type in "Lil Wayne" and Pandora puts together a
playlist that includes a few Lil Wayne tracks, as well as other
related rappers, both lyrically and musically. The recommendation
are almost always spot on (though you can vote each song up or
down), and you learn about rappers you might never have heard
before. It is this aspect that makes Pandora my favorite radio
station to use: it's based on what I like to listen to, and doesn't
run audio advertisements!
SmoothBeats is a great resource for rap fans looking for free music
online, though the selection isn't that great. You basically listen
to whatever they're playing at the time (which is not nearly as cool
as Pandora, which you can change at will). Still, they play good
music and you can always duplicate what you like on Pandora and find
more related rap artists.
Some people have started using YouTube as their own hiphop radio
station. You can put together a playlist of tracks- which of course
come with videos- and run them through your computer and/or TV and
create your very own MTV! The only drawback to this is that you
have to manually change the song each time it finishes, though.
If you're looking for the hottest new beats, mixtapes or underground
rappers, you can download a slew of them from RapGodFathers. They've
got an incredible amount of hiphop you can download, including
videos from underground artists that you'd never see on TV. It's the
combination of video and audio that makes this a great place to find
These websites are the best hiphop radio stations online. They
provide new songs all the time, which helps you stay on top of the
hottest new rap music. In addition, these sites offer their services
for free, so you don't have to break the bank trying out new music!
Check them and see for yourself; as a long time listener of rap and
hip hop music, I'm a huge fan of all these radio stations!
