Lo fi hip hop music on the radio

Lo-fi hip hop is a sub-genre of hip-hop music that emerged in the late 2010s. It is characterized by its relaxed and nostalgic vibe, often incorporating samples from old jazz, soul, and R&B records. Lo-fi hip hop is often used as background music for studying, relaxing, or working, as it has a calming effect on listeners.
