TBT: History of Hip-Hop 1998 (Mixed by DJ Ayres)

#TBT today has us looking back at 1998 and what an interesting year for hip-hop that was. Immediately post Biggie and 2Pac murders, it was invigorating to see (and hear) so many great tracks seemingly inspired by the void those two legends left behind. Or maybe all of this music was slotted for ’98 anyways and it was mere coincidence timeline wise. Who knows. Whatever the case may be, so many anthems and crew bangers dropped this year and a ton of it is mixed to perfection here by DJ Ayres as part of the History of Hip-Hop mix series. Stream and download are below.
