The Golden era of Hip Hop between the 90’s to early 2000 saw the biggest influx seen to date of rappers jump-starting their careers behind brands like Wu-Tang, Terror Squad and Rocafella to name a few.
From the beginning, rap was never intended to be a solo endeavor; it began in cyphers at block parties, and the first established rappers were components of a collective centered around the more important DJ. Fast forward to the 90′ and the breakdancing cypher crews became larger than life Characters representing their stomping grounds and now utilizing their street persona for profit.
We pay homage today to these Golden Era groups with our “Classic Times Vol. 4“, the 25 track playlist features music from Digable Planets, A Tribe Called Quest, Naughty By Nature, The L.O.X, Cypress Hill and more.
