Beautiful Hip Hop Instrumentals: The Perfect Study Music

Yep. Finals week.

If you want some calming background music for studying – stuff that won’t distract your mind but also won’t put it to sleep – check out this YouTube playlist below. It contains 25 instrumentals from some of my favorite hip hop producers. The beats are jazzy, relaxing, warm, and most importantly, lyric-free, so your mind can focus fully on the words in front of you. Hopefully you’ll find yourself nodding along instead of dozing off. Enjoy!

The playlist features tracks from Clams Casino, Vanilla, Madlib, XXYYXX, Sabzi, Dan the Automator, and more.
