It's Memorial Day weekend! That means cookouts, family reunions, graduation parties - in other words, the unofficial kickoff to summer! We know everybody is going to need a solid playlist for cousin Denard's graduation or Aunt Lisa's 40th birthday party, so we decided to help ya out.

We picked some songs to help you get started on your summertime playlist. If you love classic Hip-Hop, you gotta love these bangers, fam. 

Here are Classic Hip-Hop's Greatest Summer Songs! (We added an extra one for the holiday. You're welcome.)
