Top 100 Projects of 2019

Music

2019 seems like a distant memory now but as always I’ve waited a little while to get my top 100 projects of the year out there. It was a weak year in a lot of people’s eyes and although I’d agree with them to an extent there was still a lot of great music being released.

So join me as I count down my top 100 projects of 2019, playing a track from each then talking a bit about the artists and why I love their music. All of the releases here are great and I definitely recommend checking out all of them. It’s always really hard to rank music so this is a very rough order.

Below is my top 100 in list form along with the 10 podcast episodes counting down the releases. If you just to check out some great music from last year I’ve also made this 185 video long YouTube playlist of my favourite rap videos of the year.
