My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy – Kanye West

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted FantasyIf you literally only have one CD for a road trip, this has gotta be it. The songs are real varied, so whether you’re going for a banger or a ballad you’ll be happy. The lyrics and production are both on point, and the features are perfectly chosen/spread out. This album was almost made for long car rides.

 Doggystyle – Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg - DoggystyleThis spot could have also gone to The Chronic, considering they’re both about 50/50 Snoop and Dre, but this is my personal G Funk choice. All they do round there is drive, so I think they know what to play in the car. Whether you’re blunt cruising or just going spot to spot, you’re gonna wanna bump this shit.


Old – Danny Brown

Danny Brown - OldThis is another one that works as well for grocery shopping as it does for a road trip. Shit, both sides almost make their own albums. Listen to side A for the deep shit that’ll make you think, and listen to side B for the bangers that’ll keep you up. Whenever you pop in your car and need something to bump, Danny Brown’s got you.


Black on Both Sides – Mos Def

Mos Def - Black on Both SidesThis is that shit when you’re looking for some poetry and some real shit in the car. Sometimes when I’m driving I’ll replay a track from this toy fully enjoy it again. So I guess it’s pretty much a double album for the car, then. If you’re into Mos Def, dope beats, real shit in general, or just hip hop, go for this CD.

Piñata – Freddie Gibbs and Madlib

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - PiñataFinally, if you want that classic Madlib shit with more shorter songs, go for this. Freddie Gibbs is the tightest rapper in the game (like, he never leaves a rhyme unfinished #NoLooseEnds) and Madlib is the most unique rapper out there. One of the best albums of 2014 will make a hell of an addition to any car ride you got. Scope.


Pick up any of the above albums and bump some dope shit on your next trip.

Whether it’s across the country or across the street (but I guess you should really just walk in that situation), be prepared.
