In Steady Rotation is the product of one voracious hip-hop head’s quest to dig deep into the digital crates of the internet for exceptional, recently released hip-hop albums. This project began with my own hip-hop renaissance in 2012, when I grew restless with the oft-repeated classic albums of the early 90s and decided to start scouring the internet for today’s best gems. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. Despite Nas’ proclamation that hip-hop is dead, I discovered a hidden trove of previously unheard artists and their extremely-ill releases. As I began to have conversations with friends about the state of present day hip-hop, I realized that many of them were unfamiliar with what I considered to be the creme de la creme of the current underground landscape. From that disconnect, this wonderful blog was born. Feel free to use it as a musical compass to navigate the burgeoning hip-hop blogosphere and guide yourself toward some of today’s best releases, many of them free. I’m optimistic about the quantity and the quality of hip-hop music today, and cannot wait to share that optimism through my posts. Thanks for stopping by and happy listening.
