About the show
Playing tracks by
Ill and Al Scratch, Keith Murray, Redman, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Artifacts and more.
After a tour of the 80s, DJ Ayres, Cosmo Baker & DJ Eleven dig into the genre as it becomes a pop culture phenomenom in the 90s. Starting with the jazzy samples of the Native Tongues movement in the early part of the decade, with groups like A Tribe Called Quest and the Jungle Brothers, the series moves into the gangster pop of the East Coast/West Coast rivalry. Theres plenty of Biggie, Tupac, Dre, Snoop, Wu-Tang, Jay-Z, club classics, forgotten singles, the start of the indie era with Rawkus, and flavors from different parts of the country as the genre expanded to the South.
