DJ Ridym - Old Skool Hip Hop Volume 1



Welcome mixtapers to the first of my new mix series titled Old Skool Hip Hop where I'll be featuring hip hop from east coast, west coast and everything in between.

Volume 1 kicks off with Mos Def's excellent version of Jam On It followed by the original from Newcleus. More electro hip hop from Afrika Bambaataa, Madlib and Man Parish before switching to hardcore east coast rap from the Shaolin kingpins Wu-Tang Clan with tracks from Raekwon, Ghostface Killer and Ol Dirty Bastard AKA ODB.

We then go west coast gangster rap with Snoop and NWA before finishing neatly with Grand Puba and I Like It. Mr Puba, one of our unsung hero's of rap was once a member of rap trio Brand Nubians and prior to this released his debut album with rap group Masters of Ceremony in 1988. Since then he has collaborated with other big name artists such as Missy Elliot, Mary J Blige, Big Daddy Kane, KRS-1, Fat Joe and Q-tip and is still making music with his recent release last year titled Black To The Future.

Enjoy and I'll be back real soon but until then look out for mixes from DJ's SoulnRnB and Grizz.
