Lo-fi, lofi, lo fi hip-hop - Appreciation Thread
Did the title that way so people can find it in their search.
Bus Station [Jazz Hop / Lofi / Asian Beats]
You've probably come across the lo-fi YT channels. I really like them in general, and I love when those sorts of beats are used on actual music. For example:
DJ Premier - Our Streets feat. A$AP Ferg (Official Video)
MC Paul Barman - Excuse You
Allegedly there's some anti-lofihh according to this article: Lo-Fi Hip-Hop Is Everywhere And Meaningless; After the lo-fi hip-hop boom, a group of artists is looking to bring meaning and narrative back to the genre.
I don't personally find much difference between what is featured in the article as "bringing meaning back" but I always let the music do the talking anyway. Hip-hop beats with some jazz lines over it - to me - is an open love letter to city life and I love it no matter what.
Anyway, what do you folks think?
