3031826412_76abef8ee1_bDudes, this hipster rap thing is serious. I thought it was just Kid Cudi, but now there’s another contender for Biggest Hipster Rapper. His name is Drake. Is he less indie than Cudi? He samples Peter Bjorn & John, Lykke Li and Santogold. None are strangers to rap: PB&J toured with Kanye as his backing band, Lykke sometimes likes to cover Rick Ross and Santi got her track “Shove It/Shuv It” Three-Six Mafia’d. What do you guys think? Or is there a more hipster rapper that owns them both?

Let’s Call It Off (ft. PB&J)

Little Bit (ft. Lykke Li)

Unstoppable (ft. Santigold & Lil Wayne)

All three songs are taken from Drake’s new mixtape So Far Gone. Listen to the whole thing at imeem.

i think u should check out mickey factz he runs with all them including cuddi and drake

Comment by Anthony

How can Mickey Factz be the biggest Hipster Rapper? What if Drake or Cuddi took his music? Then you really can’t call him that. It’s just someone who makes a track is live more Liv-er. That’s all. DRAKE ALL DAY EVERYDAY!

Yes, he was on Degrassi! I knew I recognized his voice. Wow, that’s weird. He’s not really hipster if everyone knows who he is, right?

Hoodie Allen out-hipsters both of them.

Black Keys, Florence + the Machine, Death Cab, Yeasayer, Two Door Cinema Club….
