Being asked to set up the music for a party is a dubious honour. While you have the power to choose the music if you select the wrong music, people will turn against you very quickly and demand control of the sound system.
To avoid any conflict, and to avoid embarrassment, take a look at the following tips for picking a hip-hop party playlist.
1. Find existing playlists
The easiest way to find a party playlist for hip-hop music is to search on YouTube or Spotify to find a pre-existing one someone else has already compiled. If the playlist is already popular, then there won’t be much room to criticise you for choosing it.
2. Get a list of songs from the guestlist
A great way to make sure nobody is disappointed with the party playlist is to ask the guestlist what hip-hop songs they would like to hear. While not everyone will have tastes that agree with each other, this is the most diplomatic solution.
3. Ask someone else to do it
If you are lost on what to do, then pass on the responsibility to someone else who is eager to be the DJ for the evening.
