This week we explore the "third coast." That vast region of Hip Hop's many other sites that are neither east or west coast. In this playlist, I've included some of the best up and coming artists in the last few years, and a few well known artists. I haven't included all of the usual suspects (i.e. Kanye, Eminem) because we will spend a lot of time thinking about their work in the coming weeks. Not to worry though - this one should give you a complete sense of how the music of the Midwest and the South differ from the sounds of the east and west coast. Keeping today's lecture in mind, see if you can identify the major differences in the themes of this playlist and those of the previous ones. See you all soon.
