BEATS, RAPS, SCRATCHES
Roxanne Shante with Marley Marl, who also cut some dope shit with MC Shan.
Hard to believe how mind-blowing Cool J was when he first exploded on the scene. He never bettered that debut album, imho.
Schooly D: Just the illist shit known to man.
Basically, when it comes to Hip Hop, I'm an Eighties man. It was great before the fucking rare grooves started appearing. Great before they started adding bloody basslines, melodies etc. Just gimme an 808, some tight scratching and a decent MC and I'm happy. You say I should listen to more Crunk. Yeah probably, but y'know I'm perfectly content with this shit.
Sending this post out to all my home boys, fly girls, etc..
