TBT this week takes us back 30 years (jeez that’s a long time) to our history of Hip-Hop mix from 1987. Lots of years can be arguably the best years in Hip-Hop. ’87 may not be THAT year but with the debut of N.W.A. along with outstanding releases from EPMD, The Jungle Brothers, Kool G Rap, Public Enemy, LL Cool J and Eric B & Rakim…it was certainly a fantastic year for Rap. Stream this mix loaded with classics in full above and cop the free download below.
