This week's Spotify playlist: A different kind of rap

Abstract hip hop (also called alternative hip hop) is a genre that simultaneously reaches back to '80s turntablism while inventively incorporating influences from rock and jazz, sound effects, and absurdist poetry. Lyrically, the songs reach beyond our everyday, material concerns and consider more existential or sociological issues.
