How many of you are old HipHop heads?

Post by extra cee » Thu Jul 05, 2007 12:49 pm

I have been following the Dub step scene for a few years now and love the freshness of it all. But i am an old school HipHop head at heart. I have noticed the odd track coming out using the old HipHop samples which takes me back.
How many of you grew up listening to the likes of Mantronix, Kool G Rap and Polo and Big daddy Kane? :P

My first true love.

Breaking Atoms (Main Source)
36 Chambers
Runaway Slave (Showbiz n AG)
Stakes is High (De La soul)
6 Feet Deep (Gravediggaz)
Resurrection (Common (Sense))
ETtc.

Prefer Grime to UKHH by miles though. Some exceptions obviously - Masquerades and Silhouettes (Lewis Parker) and Brand New Second Hand spring to mind.

Was into PE, NWA, De la and Quest at the time and started finding out and getting hold of more as time went on and the reissues started (didn't really have hip hop crews or shows in my town at the time so couldn't really get hold of much).
Hmm....

Only moved here 11 years ago, so when things were kicking off in the golden era (88-93), I was only aware of the stuff you could get in our local shop which being Our Price was mostly shit. Picked up Nation of Millions and never looked back. First heard She Watch Channel Zero being mixed into from the Slayer tune it sampled in a metal club years back.

Diamond D should get loads more props than he does - Stunts, Blunts and Hip Hop is one of my fave albums of all time
Hmm....

Public Enemy was the first hip hop I ever bought....I straight listened to "fear of a black planet" every day for a year.... I'd say my old school favs were.....

P.E.

Gang Starr (Premo is the BOMB)

EPMD ('Business as Usual' is my fav hip hop album of all time.)

Pete Rock and CL Smooth- Pete Rock is still holdin' it down, my favorite producer of all time hip hop wize I think... (Check his solo album "SOUL SURVIVOR")

LONS - where Busta Ryhmes got his start

Tribe

De LA

Black Sheep

NWA

Too Short

Pharcyde

Big Daddy Kane

Redman

Das EFX

Main Source

Brand Nubian

Geto Boys

Soul's of Mischief

Del

Most of these cats still hold it down on some level... Many others..... I was a head for this shit in High school and Jr. High.


Anyone remember the old Rap CIty and Yo! MTV raps?.... I used to get home every day after school and it was 2 hours of hip hop magic. All good shit, not like the fucking bullshit they call hip hop in the mainstream now...... :cry:
