Brooklyn Radio-History of Hip Hop
I was put onto this by Sam Hardcastle, and thank god I was pure hip hop in the best form full of classic's/not so classic's but all credible Hip Hop.The mixes are split into each year so you have a full mix of hip hop from 1990,1991 and so on. So don your hi-tops, turn your cap to the side and pull ya kegs a little lower
"Baker, DJ Ayres, and DJ Eleven of The Rub present their history of hip-hop series on BrooklynRadio.net.
After a tour of the 80s, the crew digs into the genre as it becomes a pop culture phenomenom in the 90s. Starting with the jazzy samples of the Native Tongues movement in the early part of the decade, with groups like A Tribe Called Quest and the Jungle Brothers, the series moves into the gangster pop of the East Coast/West Coast rivalry. Theres plenty of Biggie, Tupac, Dre, Snoop, Wu-Tang, Jay-Z, club classics, forgotten singles, the start of the indie era with Rawkus, and flavors from different parts of the country as the genre expanded to the South.
