Part 3 in 3-part retrospective on 2019 in hip-hop from my subjective personal tastes in music - For me these songs/artists kicked fuckin ass - regardless of how many copies they sold or were streamed or how many views their accompanying YouTube videos received. Please post comment on your one top fave hip-hop artist or song of 2019 - thank-you for listening and special THANK YOU to the artists who recorded all this great music to play on F M U know..........
