    Default HipHop DJ's - Looking for some help asap.

    I dont often play hiphop sets, and i'm playing one tonight so i was wondering if any DJs on here to play hiphop sets, both old school and new could suggest me some tracks to get and play? I love hiphop but the stuff i listen to i can't really imagine playing to please a crowd..

    The crowd is not gonna be full of hiphop heads, its a commercial night - but i'm just a bit dry on the old hiphop track selection.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    What kind of hip hop? There are so many types... And the kind that is appropriate is completely dependent on the type of feel you want. If it's a commercial night, you should probably stick with a Ludacris/Chris Brown/Drake kinds of muziks

    Must plays that are popular right now are songs like:
    The Motto by Drake
    Rack City by Tyga
    Paris by Kanye and JayZ
    Work Out by J Cole
    Dance by Big Sean

    If you want a little flavor from older tracks here's a few that go down well:

    Just a Friend by Biz Markie
    I got 5 on it by Luniz
    hypnotize by Biggy
    Next Episode by Dre


    There's many other tracks but those would be on the top of my list... and don't start playing them until your crowd has been properly heated up
