I agree spotify dont really have playlists for old school Hip Hop, and the ' hip hop' playlists they do have arent really hip hop with some of the artists they have like lil wayne or lil uzi vert. Better for the community to make their own. This is mine if anyone wants some old school hip hop.

They should have like contest to see who has the best playlist and let that person takeover a Spotify playlist?

I agree on this one - for some reason all Spotify playlists contain pop music or are heavily skewed towards pop.

Here is a few examples:

 

Not Electronica:

Not Electropop:
https://play.spotify.com/user/diegomansillapoblete/playlist/2UsEj2GUukV0GLbsE3rldz

 

Not Trance:
https://play.spotify.com/user/armadamusicofficial/playlist/5lSgExb6yTKfLusGag7bm7

 

Not Punk(!):
https://play.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/74naekzHkIR8ZlRNcFMzn5

Not being able to tell college rock and punk apart... duh.

 

Please do something about this.

Most algorithms (including Spotify's) have a popularity bias. They tend to recommend the most popular stuff. Drake is #notmyhiphop. I love Nas and Mobb Deep and Deltron 3030.

 

If you're looking to move away from the popular garbage, you need to go to trusted sources of inspiration. People. I feel so certain about this that I made an app to solve this problem. It's at www.rollingmuse.com 

 

It's beta, but someone like you might really dig it.

I know how you feel, which is why I created this old school hip hop playlist, specialised in hip hop's Golden Era, with over 1000 hip hop classics, you'll love it, I'm sure, it has Nas, Mobb Deep, and Del The Funky Homosapien (who - I'm sure you know already - is Deltron 3030). Enjoy! ;)

 

Oh and if you like it, please follow...
