Classic Material Bonus Mix #5: Hip Hop Soul '92-98

Classic Material Bonus Mix #5: Hip Hop Soul '92-98

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global 90s chart, 4th in the global r&b chart and 7th in the global hip hop chart.

The Classic Material ‘bonus’ mixes fill the gaps in the original Classic Material Hip Hop History mixtape series, exploring specific sub genres or spin off genres not covered in the main series. #5 delves into Mid 90s R&B, specifically the pairing of R&B vocals with classic Hip Hop production, 'Hip Hop Soul', the natural evolution from New Jack Swing. The mix features production from many of those frequently associated with the sound, The Untouchables et al, alongside names from the Hip Hop underground who dabbled in R&B: DJ Premier, Easy Mo Bee, The Beatnuts, Salaam Remi and more. 16 Bar rap verses abound - AZ, KRS One, Grand Puba, Notorious BIG, Nas and many lesser known all appear. Featured only on this mix, many of the tracks pair R&B Acapellas with Hip Hop production from the era. The artwork is a pastiche of a popular sleeve from the era, the Bad Boy Records company/promo jacket.
