Life is Good – Nas

imageOnce you’re bumping Illmatic in your ride, add Life is Good to the collection. Hip Hop’s greatest storyteller comes through with some updated lyrics on mostly throwback beats, but it’s all dope. The first like 4 songs will kick off any road trip on the right foot, and by Anthony Hamilton’s feature in World’s an Addiction, you’ll be sold.

Life Is Good [Deluxe Edition]

 Wolf – Tyler, the Creator

Tyler the Creator - WolfWolf is Tyler’s least grimy album by far, so you can feel better about putting it in your car. The jazzier, softer parts complement the darker songs like Rusty well, and the Earl and Domo features (along with the others, like Frank’s) are always good. This is one for your longer road trips more than it is for errands, to get the full experience.

Game Theory – The Roots

The Roots - Game TheorySometimes when you’re driving you just want tight drums and a dope beat. No one’s gonna give you doper drums than Questlove, so you better get yourself some Roots. Game Theory is just one of their many albums, but in my opinion it’s the best. The self-titled track goes the hardest, and goes perfectly with being behind the wheel.

 Cadillactica – Big K.R.I.T.

Big K.R.I.T. - CadillacticaI really don’t need to explain to you why an album called Cadillactica belongs on a list for the best hip hop for your car. This is also gonna be for the longer road trips, to fully appreciate the change and growth throughout the album. As usual, K.R.I.T. comes at you hard with the bangers but strong with the ballads.


 good kid, m.A.A.d. city – Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d. city

This shit pretty much takes place in Kendrick’s mom’s car, and with the skits it sounds like it was recorded there too. Even though Kendrick is washed now this shit is West Coast, so it was literally made to be bumped while driving. Listening to this while driving will make you feel like you’re watching a movie.

Good Kid: M.A.A.D City

That’s all I got.

But that’s obviously not every album out there that it’s crucial for every hip hop head to have ready for the car. What do you got playing when you’re driving to work, across the country or just to taco bell? Let me know, and if you haven’t yet…
