Yoiks! Here’s a definitive history of hip hop, all mixed up and ready for download.
I’m not a massive fan of MTV Base style R&Bized modern hip hop, and Westwood makes me want to purchase knock-off Uranium and do something really bad to mankind.
On the other hand these mixes are jammed with stone-cold classics that you and your momma can enjoy. The guys from The Rub (Cosmo, Eleven & Ayres) really know their shizzle. Mixing up well known favourites along with some more obscure stuff.
Featuring artists like:
Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, Africa Bambaataa, The Beastie Boys, Eric B. & Rakim – My Melody, Kool Moe Dee, Run DMC, Ultramagnetic MCs, Stetsasonic, Kool G Rap, Public Enemy, BDP, Jungle Brothers, Kid N Play, 45 King, Rob Base, 2 Live Crew, NWA, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, EPMD, Doug Lazy, Biz Markie, Digital Underground, Slick Rick, 3rd Bass, etc. etc. etc.
If you’ve always thought that you should or might like hip hop, this is a great place to get started with the good stuff. And if you’re a lapsed fan, it’s the place to re-light your fire.
