yeah Browner, I was just talking to someone about UltraMag MC's last night, I would have put them up but they went trhu several different incarnations, none as fresh as the first, and I would call that early 80's rap...

 

also, anything that came out after 86 was basically hip-hop, or proto-house... Rap really died around 84...

yeah see... for Eric B. and Rakim, late 80's/early 90's was basically 'Casualties of War'... nothing like Paid in Full, officially released in like Jan86 (seems like??? I forget exacts) but it was still about 2 years of jams... so...

smart, i'm not so concerned with exactly how 'old school' it is, its a general time period for me, rounded, that gets an all encompassing stamp of old schoolness...

yeah Browner, I'm hip, but.. it's not your CD... he said late80s/early 90s... you have taste, so I wouldn't fret if you were making it for me but... see what I'm sayin?

oh, wait, and I realize I didjn't totally address what you said either... but... yeah, see, for me, it was like marking times in my life, I remember when shit was brand new and everything was another building block, the roxanne shante battle... the doug e. fresh v. fat boys for the title of 'original human beatbox'.... seeing the tougher than leather tour, w/ Beasties (before the release of 'Don't Be a Faggot'), L.L. Cool J. Run-DMC and Whodini... these were very visceral moments in my development, so yeah, maybe I stand a little too close, but whatever...
