Lawrence Burney takes us on a tour of his favorite music from this year, from Baltimore to Port Harcourt and back again.

In his time as the host of True Laurels, music journalist Lawrence Burney has explored the most exciting music coming from artists not only in his home region of Baltimore and Washington, DC, but also in the American South, the Caribbean, West Africa and beyond. To mark the end of the year, and as a follow-up to last week’s episode on the finest rap that came out of the DMV in 2018, Burney devotes this hour to the year’s best from the global black underground, including hip-hop from across the US, dancehall, hot club tracks and more.
