Episode 30: Iowa Hip​-​Hop and Rap

by Iowa Music Showcase

  • Streaming + Download



This podcast episode is dedicated to my college student daughter who gave this middle age man a lesson on what trap music is with examples!

But I would like to point out that I still knew what EDM meant but she did!

WARNING: Adult language and situations are featured in some of these songs.

This week, we present a podcast featuring some of the hip hop and rap music being made in our fair state.

To outsiders, Iowa might seem a strange place to find hip hop, but if anybody does even half a search, they would find plenty be made here.

The only issue is it hasn't got the coverage it should. I'm happy to help fight against that with this episode and these 7 songs, and two excerpts of an eighth!

As a postscript, I would like to point out 5 of these songs are submissions. If you'd like your song, hip hop/rap or any other genre, send an audiofile or link to iowamusicshowcase@gmail.com!
