  • Hip Hop 86 - 95

    the hip hop era 88 - 95 was my early teen years.
    i loved it, couldn't get enough of it. Starting with the first Beastie boys album in 1986 and then Run DMC, Which lead to Public Enemy and De La Soul, and buying Hip hop connection.
    learning about Digital Underground, N.W.A, then on to Cypress Hill, Funkdoobiest, then it all changed with the Chronic, doggystyle. and then i started listening to Grunge and didn't really bother with Hip Hop after that.

    i must be missing some solid albums between 1986 and 1995. what classics should i be checking out?

    a few favs
    Digital Underground - Sex Packets
    Eazy E - Eazy Duz it
    Ice - Cube - The Predator
    Beastie Boys - Pauls Boutique
    Funkdoobiest - which doobie u b
    Cypress Hill - Black Sunday
    Dr Dre - The Chronic
    Snoop - Doggy style

    actually, it looks like i like hip hop with Pfunk samples

        'Black Bastards' has been reissued on Doom's own label.

        There's quite a few versions.

        The 2CD reissue has a lot of extras. This for one.

          Pharcyde - Bizzare Ride II The Pharcyde

          Wu Tang - Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

          Gang Starr - Daily Operation


          Souls Of Mischief - '93 Til Infinity



          Gang Starr - Step In The Arena



          Both Digable Planets albums were well made. The 2nd (Blowout Comb) got a bit overlooked I think.
          The vinyl seemed to knacker up quite fast due to the cardboard inner sleeves.


          Pete Rock & CL Smooth - The Main Ingredient


          Black Sheep - A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing


          EPMD - Strictly Business


          OK last edit. A while ago I started to check out cassette only releases. There's loads that you would
          never have heard about without the internet. I started to wonder if this was a recent fake [made to look old n lofi],
          but I found timestamped references to it on the internet from the mid to late 90's. He still performs btw.

                I would recommend the Ego Trip Book Of Rap Lists - published in 1999 and still in print by the looks of it. An authorative and amusing guide to eighties and nineties hip hop with some fantastic charts of best albums, and records by year.

                  I still go back to Loc-ed After Dark - pre-gangsta, but with all the best sleazy funk samples - Easin' In, Son of Slave, North East South West etc. Plus the Donald Byrd cover.

                  I dug out Naughty By Nature's first a few weeks ago and had fun with that, too.

                  Brand Nubian - All For One, Jeru's first, Lakim Shabazz - there's loads and loads and I wasn't even buying that much hip hop.

                        Perhaps it's something to do with the political climate, but I am going back to It takes a nation of millions, Fear of a black planet and Apocalypse 91. Nothing sounds as urgent, alive and even hopeful as 'Can't Truss It' right now. I don't really want smoothness or funk, I want it angry and relentless and full.

                        Not to divert from Paul's question, but based on this has anyone got any hip-hop recommendations for me? Contemporary and past.

                              he's pretty underrated all round I think. the concept album "Disposable Arts" (from 2001 i think?) is great. Not sure I'm keen on the west coast album he made ("Sittin' On Chrome") but may fit the bill for some
