WPWX is really the only for the most part straight Hip-Hop station in Chicago. It probably still has quite the following. Mumble rap is extremely popular online, and they play it for Chicago.
WGCI is Mainstream Urban. Mix of Hip Hop, R&B and older songs to compete with WBMX.
Then there’s WBMX. I wouldn’t even call it “Classic Hip-Hop” I consider it Classic Rhythmic CHR. They play a lot of Jennifer Lopez, Daft Punk, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Destiny’s Child, etc. A lot of it pulled directly from B96’s 2000s-era library. Literally the same song files or versions that B96 played. Every now and then they’ll put on an 80s-Early 90s New Jack Swing cut.
