Highway 61 Re-Revisited

a short history of hip-hop in video

I’ve been getting into hip-hop as of late, a bit of schooling ’bout it helped since I was clueless before. Anyway, made this up so some of you could avoid that. 

My advice would be you start with Gang Starr’s ‘You know my steez’. It’s what got me into it and still my personal favorite.

1991 – Tim Dog – Penicilin on wax – Fuck Compton

1992 – Gang Starr – Daily Motion – The Illest brother

1992 – Dr. Dre – The Chronic – Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ thang

1993 – Wu-Tang – Enter the Wu-Tang (36 chambers) – Protect ya neck

1993 – KRS-One – Return of the Boom Bap – Sound of da police

1994 – Gang Starr – Hard to Earn – Code of the streets

1994 – Nas – Illmatic – Memory Lane

1995 – Mobb Deep –  The Infamous – Shook ones Pt. 2

1996 – The Fugees – The Score – The Mask

1997 – Notorious B.I.G – Life after Death – You’re nobody ’till somebody kills you

1998 – Gang Starr – Moment of truth – You know my steez

1999 – Mos Def – Black on both sides – Umi Says

 

And for what’s been up on the Romanian scene, here’s Kazi Ploae & Bean – Wake up. And quote: ‘Nu mai taia copacii coae, respiram acelasi aer!’
