Decade Dingers



As we approach the end of the decade, the first of the 2000’s, there will be many “best of the decade” type lists and projects popping up.  Every hip hop blogger is going to weigh in on what they feel is the best music from this decade.  And rightfully so.  I mean, the end of a decade is an appropriate time to reflect on the past.  And for hip hop, well, it’s been an amazing ten years.  As much as I love 90’s hip hop music, I think some exceptional material was released this decade, on albums, mixtapes, and more recently via the internet.  So on that note, Westcheddar presents DECADE DINGERS, a compilation of 21 of some of my personal favorite cuts from the past ten years of hip hop music.  There’s some mixtape gems, slept on album tracks, rarities, and even a couple  blends, all which I would label as excellent post-90’s rap music.  Don’t be upset if you don’t see your choice of songs or artists on here, you can make your own CD too.  In fact, I encourage it.  But this is how I will fondly remember the 2000-2009 hip hop.  This CD represents IP’s taste buds for beats and rhymes.  These are some of the tracks that got a lot of airplay in MY whip.  I think you’re gonna like it.  Some of it may be familiar, and some of it mat not.  Or you might say, “I forgot about that joint!”  Check the tracklist and then click the link below it to download…
