The District’s hip hop scene has traditionally lagged behind other cities, like New York City and Atlanta, when it comes to nationwide recognition. But the recent meteoric rise of several local rappers, including Goldlink and Logic, illuminates the growth of the local scene. That national recognition includes several Grammy nominations and is born out of a thriving regional hip hop ecosystem, which, in the last year especially, is nourishing a diverse group of musicians with a unique sound. Kojo explores the evolution of rap music from the Washington region.
