Vox gets into treble: Rap to celebrate the passing of (some) midterms
Welcome to “Vox gets into treble,” our weekly playlist of music to get you past hump day and through the rest of the week. It’s been a pretty rough week, hasn’t it? But cheer up everyone, the first week of midterms is behind us! It’s time to kick back, relax and blast loud, distorted bass all over campus.
That’s right, this week Vox is proud to present a compilation of rap greats, new and old. The Rap Royalty are all represented with tracks from Jay Z, Kanye West, Outkast, and multiple iterations of Kendrick Lamar, all while fresh MCs like Chance the Rapper, Schoolboy Q, and A$AP Rocky tear verses apart.
