I’m not the type of girl who can run without music. Tragedy is when I am without headphones or have a dead battery and therefore have to complete a run or workout without a soundtrack. The majority of my run playlists are filled with hip-hop. In future posts I will get deeper into BPMs and possibly craft a running workout structured around the tempo of the songs. But for now, get ready to add these 12 songs to your running playlist simply because, well, because they have kept my hyped during my run and you deserve the same.
All I Do is Win– DJ Khaled feat. T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg & Rick Ross
Roman’s Revenge – Nicki Minaj & Eminem
Fancy – Drake
Wild For the Night – A$AP Rocky feat. Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam
I Got the Keys – DJ Khaled feat. Jay Z & Future
Made You Look – Nas
Paper Planes – M.I.A.
Who Gon Stop Me – Kanye West & Jay-Z
Fly Solo – Wiz Khalifa
F**kin’ Problems – A$AP Rocky feat. Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar
Beware – Big Sean feat. Lil Wayne & Jhene Aiko
