Brought to you by HYPEBEAST RadioThe HYPE Report is a weekly show that analyzes key cultural moments from the past week, with topics including fashion, footwear, music, tech, arts, gaming and more. Our host, Mikey Dabb, talks shop with HYPEBEAST editors across the globe to dissect these stories.

This week on The HYPE Report, Mikey sits down with Music Editor Emmanuel Maduakolam and Music Coordinator Patrick Johnson to discuss the best music of 2019 alongside moments of the past decade. A standout year for R&B with Summer Walker‘s Over It and SiR‘s Chasing Summer to the return of gritty gangster rap like Freddie Gibbs & Madlib‘s Bandana and Griselda‘s WWCD, 2019 was a year of unforeseen genres co-existing in the same space.

We saw the rise and power of viral hits from Lil Nas X, Lizzo and Billie Eilish taking over streaming platforms to eclectic artists like JPEGMAFIA and Flying Lotus pushing forth the sound of music. Reflecting on the past decade, our editors also discuss the unstoppable popularity of “toxic R&B”, the power of rap crews, the impact of the Knowles sisters and much more. Listen above to find out why our editors also believe we live in the era of the algorithm and wouldn’t mind bring back the golden age of torrenting.
