WIGGY'S OTHER CATEGORIES PICKS FOR 2020
Updated: Jan 5
And so we've arrived at the end of this years picks lists....thanks so much for humoring me like it matters what I think...because I know it doesn't but it's fun to write about stuff I like and try to give some recognition to folks I admire in the community. These are categories that I feel like were too small for their own lists given how little new writing I had time to do as I curated these lists if that makes sense...enjoy!
A Gnarly Note
333hz should have been in my top 20 I.E. projects of 2020 list (and my video list is proof I didn’t sleep on Gnarly this year I think/hope you’d agree) but by the time I realized that it wasn't the list was out- I didn’t want to revise and bump anyone else down, I didn’t want to put it at 21 etc. but yes of course a most honorable mention in my projects pick category to
Los Angeles Fave
San Diego Fave
Standout Video series:
Mental Floss Pencil Box - Samuel Oxymoron / TWLV
Standout Non/Alt Hip-Hop/Hip-Hop Adjacent artists and projects
2020 artist runs I want to recognize…I was going to say for what…but really just look at the lists I’ve posted over the last 5 days, see how these names keep coming up, how they keep coming up with product that people like at an impressive pace. It might be an indicator of how they used the time inside during this wild ass year too. Savvy observers may note that it's these artists that produce good stuff consistently that give bloggers stuff to blog about, something I learned over the last two years as I wrote about 6 pieces a week mostly about this area's music.
Tap in if you haven’t yet.
OH GOSH LEOTUS
WHO TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2021
Just a sampling off top, to be sure. This isn't just rappers but producers, promoters, writers, community and media groups as well.
