For your Valentine's Day, or anti-Valentine's Day
Posted by Lauren & Cory in Hip-HopFeb 12th, 2015
This is the first playlist I’ve collaborated on. I gave up about half the songs for her, but she helped give this playlist more direction and make more sense. When I usually create playlists I tend to miss out on the obvious, and get called out for it later, but she kept me in check for this one. Plus she had a few good songs (more than me).
Here’s Lauren’s intro to our Valentine’s Day playlist, or anti-Valentine’s Day, “Hip Hop & Heartbreak.”
Sure, love can lead to a variety of things: 54 missed calls, joint custody of puppies, the in-law from hell, a few orgasms (real ones hopefully), and sometimes, on the rare occasion, true bliss.
You know what heartbreak always leads to? Heartfelt hip hop. Whether you’re experiencing relationship disgust/turmoil/demise/inexistence or you just love hip hop, this playlist is a great way to spend the next hour or so picking through which candy heart message to eat next this Valentine’s day.
