Like most people, I visit my "Discover Weekly", "Release Radar" and "Recommended for you" in Spotify. I end up collecting a song or two each week. Most of it I don't like, or it's old.
With Franklins, I hope to bring some other songs, that might go by unnoticed by some people, to the spotlight. Note that not everything will be unknown, but some.
It's an attempt to curate a list of a more personal touch of music, like a sub genre in itself, by being selected by taste.
Most important though: I hope it'll give you some new music to enjoy.
Franklins locates and selects four links of hip hop every Friday. There's a lot of hip hop being published every day. Franklins attempts to collect the four tracks of highest quality every week.
Through a lot of browsing, searching and filtering, Franklins will locate new music for you. The purpose for the site is that it could be useful for people who don't have the time to browse all that but still get the four best links every Friday.
The name 'Franklins' refers to the $100 bill with Benjamin Franklins face. 'Franklins', and even more so, 'Benjamins', is a common lingo in hip hop to refer to money. Well, time is money, and Franklins is here to save you time by locating the best of hip hop.
