I love old school hip hop; de la soul, tribe called quest, run dmc, blacksheep, pharcyde, biz markie, ll cool J all that shit is so good to hear these days. I remember back in the day, johnny boy and I got a copy of NWA's straight outta compton, and would listen to it on the low as Nan didn't back the gangsta element, it was awesome.
Now i'm not going to be one of those guys who say that hip hop sucks now, etc... etc.. but for some reason i have a tough time connecting with the new stuff. maybe its the marketing, the image, who knows.
Back to the point of this post, I recently stumbled across this cool blog thats all about old school hip hop and features a list of essential tracks for your collection. Check it out, me i'm gonna throw on some third bass and find me a brooklyn Queen
"cuz i'm that type of ni**a thats built to last, you mess with me i put my foot in yo ass"
