47: Back In The Day, part 2

Yeah, some more rap today!

Not as oldskool as my other post,
but still kinda back in da day.
In the 90's there was some cool and funky hiphop music too.
For example the Rawkus and the Quannum
labels had some very good stuff coming out...

I love the soul and funk samples used in today's selection.
My favourite here is perhaps Steve Def,
for that fat Blaxplotation-like sample.
But it's all good, check it out!
1. Hi & Mighty - B Boy Document (4:04)
2. Joey Chavez & Defari - Develop Tools (4:33)
3. Mos Def & Talib Kweli - Re-Definition (3:02)
4. Noggin Nodgers - Bounce (3:54)
5. Peanut Butter Wolf & Planet Asia - In Your Area (2:25)
6. Pharoah Monch - Simon Says (2:53)
7. Rahzel - All I Know (4:19)
8. Steve Def - Hell Up In Harlem (3:26)
9. Tash & Tha Alkaholiks - Blackula (3:39)
10. X-Ecutioners - Ya All Know The Name (Ft. Xzibit) (3:40)

Hello e-mile,

i look forward to your Roland Kirk starter kit; may i make a suggestion? The song "you'll never get to heaven" on the live album "Bright Moments." Let me know if you need a copy.

Hi B.B.
thanks for the suggestionn, and yes I have the 2CD from Rhino.
Being a Kirkanatic myself, I have (I think) all albums and CDs by the man. And some where he performs on (Mingus, R.Hayes etc)
It's gonna be H. of a J. to select only 10 songs, there is DEFINETELY gonna be more than 1 part here :-)
But a starterkit should provide some essentials (or just my 10 favs:-)
regards, E-mile
