Denver hip-hop roundup: Listen to tracks from Molina, H*Wood, AD and more

Hip-hop has entered an experimental phase like never before. Whether it’s Kanye West’s punk-rap “Yeezus,” or LL Cool J’s regrettable collaboration with Brad Paisley that almost got him thrown out of hip-hop forever, artists are making the music they want. No matter the push-back there seems to be more of a “take no prisoners” approach to the soundscape of hip-hop than ever before. Here in Denver this is equally true and this week’s rap rundown is indicative of this very phenomenon. We bring you tracks from Molina, H*Wood, AD, Fly4wird, Ray Reed, It’s Miike and Hustle Man and Catch Lungs.

Molina is back with the track “Colorado Hip-hop pt. 2,” which is more of a “to be continued” clip than a conclusion. Boasting that “the Earth-ship has landed,” Molina rattles off a list of characters in the scene like producer Boonie Mayfield and Esnine, while giving shout-outs to MCs like DJ Cavem and Bianca Mikahn. The track may seem a bit gratuitous and geographically binding at first, but Molina is a storyteller and this is his oral history of the Denver scene.
