  • Old School Hip Hop

    Further to Hayden's post, wondering what everyone's fave old school hip hop stuff is. To qualify as old school (in my book), it has to be played by a backing band rather than use samples or drum machines.

    Ones that spring to mind...
    Tanya 'Sweet Tee' Winley - Vicious Rap
    Paulette & Tanya Winley - Rhymin' & Rappin'
    Harlem World Crew - Rappers Convention
    Spyder D - Big Apple Rappin'
    Funky 4 +1 - Rappin' & Rockin' The House
    Young Generation - We Rap More Mellow

    I will go with:
    Death Mix Throwdown - Africa Bam's crew with The Harlem Underground Band.
    WildStyle OST & Instrumentals - Various Mc's with beats by Chris Stein.
    Curtis Blow - The Breaks
    Love Rap - Spoonie Gee & The Treacherous Three
    Go on wit'cha bad elf

        Speaking of BNH, I guess you might also include their mix of The Pharcyde's Soul Flower, which is Pharcyde rapping over their instrumentation. Arse about tit, I suppose, but the intent is there.

          That's on the same album Ed mentioned... a corking album, love the Main Source and Kool G tracks.

              Xanadu and Sweet lady - Rapper´s Delight
              Pookey Blow - Get (and go to school)
              The Jackson Two - Oh yeah
              Naomi Peterson - Sweet Naomi rap

              Great 12"s i would love to have ! (someone trade them to me)

              I prefer OLD school hiphop and new hiphop and some new stuff, everybody is talking about the GOLDEN AGE but i think there is a boring stuff mostly. Well some of it is ok. Well....nevermind

                  I would have to go for "new york, new york" but that's more because of sentimental reasons. It was my first record. My mom brought it home from a trip to NYC. Not a bad way to start...

                  But "super rappin' 2" is great too.

                    Kurtis Blow/Throughout the years

                    Heard this on a mixtape last year, and it instantly jumped to ‘must have this on record’ status.
                    A week or two I found the track….In my own collection! Didn’t realise it was a B-side to his ‘Christmas rap’ and somehow had completely overlooked the track .

                      Is that the one that goes "new york, new york, it's a wonderful town, can't understand why people putting it down?"... if so, who was it?

                        I was talking about Flash & the Furious 5ive's "new york new york"...

                        It goes "new york, new york big city of dreams but everything in new york aint always what it seems".

                        I don't know the song you're talking about sorry,
