This time capsule approach to each year uncovers a slew of already forgotten gems. Ayres says it best: ” I think that hip-hop has this canon of “old-school” jams that get played at parties and make it onto “greatest of all time” lists, but over time the canon shrinks, and you’re left with a bunch of songs that represent current tastes rather than what was good at the time. As a DJ this can be frustrating, because we don’t want to be limited to Biggie, Tupac, Tribe, etc. We love those artists and but also feel there are lots of other great forgotten artists who were maybe less influential but still have records that will rock at a party. So I hope the series can do something to push back against that narrow-mindedness, or forgetfulness, or whatever you want to call it, that shrinking awareness that happens over time. It would be a shame if in 20 years the Throwback at Noon show was comprised of only Eminem, Drake and Lil Wayne…”

We are ever so fortunate that Mixcloud decided to post all 31 years of our expansive ‘History of Hip-Hop’ series. This week, it all culminates with their posting of the 2000’s.

We’re looking for a Rub takeover on the Mixcloud homepage, so please be sure to take a few moments to listen, while at work or at home, to reacquaint yourself with the past decade of Hip-Hop.
