Best Hip Hop Albums/EPs of August 2023

Updated: Sep 11

Lots of dope new Hip Hop Albums/ EPs were released in the previous month of August 2023. Also the month where Hip Hop Celebrated its 50th Birth Day. Half of these projects I learned of throughout the month of August when they first came out but the rest I had to go back to find and research. The following is my selections in rank order from 1 thru 20. My favorite Projects come from Artists Homeboy Sandman, Noname, D2x, Squeegie O, Count Bass D, Mick Jenkins, Backwood Sweetie and more.

The majority of these Projects are available on traditional digital streaming platforms however a few releases are currently exclusively on bandcamp. I noted which ones are only currently on bandcamp below.

Also, as usual check out our "Best Of" Hip Hop Playlist for the Month of August 2023, to hear some of the dope new stand alone singles from other Creative and Conscious Hip Hop artists as well as album track selections from this list via our Spotify Playlist "New Hip Hop (Aug 2023)". You can also check out this playlist embedded from spotify below
