I was recently diggin' in my crates of music, and I came across my first Diamond and The Psychotic Neurotics album, "Stunts, Blunts & HipHop," which definitely dope 90's hiphop in my book! When I played the album, it just took me back to the days when hiphop was creative and fun! I really looked forward to new releases back then! Don't get me wrong, we have a few artists that are keeping hiphop creative and fun like, The Justus League, The Weather Men, MF Doom, The Old Maid Billionaires, etc. Even with great MCs making moves in the new millineum, nothing can compare to the 90's vibe! We had A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, The Wu-Tang Clan and Black Moon all dropping classic records at the same time! How can you beat that?? I don't think hiphop will ever be as great as it was in the 90's, so I decided to put a mix together of some of my personal favorites!
This is just the first session of many mixes I will be putting together (reppin' da 90's) just because there are so many songs that I love from that era! I know my peepz (Harmone, DMecca, Eriecoco & Julz) are going to really appreciate this mixx!
