The Plug

Here’s one for the heads. From new drops by emerging voices to regional hits on their way up to just-released bangers from the game’s biggest stars, this playlist collects hip-hop that’s just inches from the spotlight: not just what’s good, but what’s next. Our editors update these picks regularly, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
