True, radio stations have lost some of their influence thanks to the popularity of the Internet, though new songs generally get a lot of airplay here. Below you’ll find classic hip hop stations and a few online ones that have blown up recently…
Power106. The authority when it comes to new rap songs. Power 106 plays tracks from the hottest established rappers like Eminem, Lil Wayne and Kanye West, as well the up and comers like T.I and Flo Rida.
Hot97. Their tagline is “Hot97 Is Hip Hop and R&B” and with their track record of providing the hottest new beats and interviews, no one is about to say otherwise.

Pandora. Without a doubt Pandora is one of my favorite sites what I’m looking for new music. All you have to do is type in the name of your favorite rapper Pandora creates a streaming playlist featuring related artists, based upon musical styles and lyrical content. It never ceases to amaze me how many rap artists I’ve come across using this site; it’s like fighting and you hit rap song every five minutes.or another great feature with Pandora is your ability to float for each song as its play. If you vote a song up, Pandora’s more likely to include that song again and your ongoing playlist; voted down and you may not see that same track for months to come, if at all.
