TBT this week is our History of Hip-Hop mix outlining the greatness that was 2001. It’s definitely making us feel a bit old that these songs are 15 years old now and the fact that some of these have been DJ set staples for that long just seems crazy. There is simply a flood of legendary material from 2001 in this mix from the likes of Aaliyah, Missy Elliot, Ludacris, Outkast, Eve, Nas, Mystikal and Jay-Z. The Neptunes and Timbaland were in top form this year too. It’s ridiculous how much they both provided the soundtrack for everything. Revisit this killer year in Hip-Hop below.
