Rest in Peace Prodigy!
I just re-upped my recording of Tim Westwood and Funkmaster Flex’s Summer 96 Radio 1 Rap show featuring A Tribe Called Quest. Click here to listen to the Five Foot Assassin freestyle! RIP Phife Dawg
The mid-Nineties was undoubtably a golden era for rap music with so much amazing sound coming from New York (and elsewhere). Emcees were hungry and and producers were on point to make major musical statements that surpassed time and still sound fresh 20 years later. Here is a small selection of debut albums from artists who shone so bright yet burnt out too fast. Due to their premature careers, this a brief reminder of music you might have missed or forgotten about from that wonderful era.
