Hip-hop has historically been the voice of the dispossessed—so it’s become a natural outlet for a new generation of Indigenous artists eager to speak their truth. In the hands of these MCs and producers, the music becomes a vehicle to not just document the harsh daily realities faced by Indigenous people across Turtle Island, but channel the strength and spirit of their Elders and reclaim cultures that had been systemically stripped away through centuries of colonial oppression. This playlist showcases both the scene-building veterans and the vibrant new voices at the forefront of the Indigenous rap renaissance, accompanied by exclusive artwork created for Apple Music by Grammy-winning Mi'kmaw producer and hip-hop historian David Strickland. Our editors regularly update this playlist with new music. If you hear something you like, add it to your library.
