NYC Bars That Actually Play Rap Image via Yelp

Mo's Fort Greene

Neighborhood: Fort Greene
Address: 80 Lafayette Ave.
Website: mosftgreene.com

Because there are more neighborhoods in New York than the Internet will allow you to believe, Mo's is not only a bar where you can watch sports and listen to hip-hop, but is also in a neighborhood where you don't have to share your space with every asshole in the city. The Fort Greene crowd can be a bit older (and by older we mean, they consider their credit score several times a year but they still know what ratchet means.) Is it small? Of course. Does it have a great happy hour—it's on this list right? Hell, even the hipsters write great Yelp reviews about the place. They play oldhead rap and new stuff, but you can successfully avoid a "trap night" and you've probably already forgotten how much happier you were before that trend happened.
