Definitive Rap Songs...Around 95 and earlier

Recommended Posts

Guest Pilau Hands

In a need to keep my spirits up and the blood moving, I've been listening to a lot more old hiphop lately, which i mostly stay away from nowadays cause there's so much modern garbage i'm not feeling. I started mixtape digging.


I'm mostly thinking east coast here but that's just what I know more of. But a few of these are west coast too, and more are welcome. in the "House Party" era. There was just this period in the late 80's early 90's where so many solid songs were released and a lot of artists were consistently putting out the joints. I was still a little young, and mostly listened to these songs a few years after they came out. So, I need more. Lots more, and I know there are a bunch of people on here who know what I'm talking about. Please contribute if you've got a list, and I know you do.


i'll start the ball rolling
