'92 - a great year for hip-hop!
I titled this post "'92 - a great year for hip-hop!" because firstly i was born in '92 and secondly '92 really was a great year for hip-hop, especially for gangsta rap. In '92 Dr. Dre's album "The Chronic" made all the west coast go nuts, the same for Ice Cube's "The Predator" which was a really raw album at the time and still is. Above the Law's "Black Mafia Life" teached us how to hustla and Compton's Most Wanted delighted us with "Music to Driveby". In the same time, on the eastcoast EPMD launched "Business Never Personal", Eric B & Rakim finished with "Don't Sweat the Technique" and Gang Starr came out with their "Daily Operation". Since '92 a lot of things changed in hip-hop, the "commercial" hip-hop came across with the american dream ideas and in my opinion ruined that flavor of hip-hop. Nowadays the term of hip-hop is a very precious one because the only ones that are still making hip-hop are some of the veterans of this music, the pioneers and the originators of this movement and of course the underground mc's...until they get to mainstream. Well that's all I wanted to say through this post, thank you all that bothered and lost precious minutes in their life to read it and please, if u really do like hip-hop start documenting RIGHT NOW, start listening some oldie but goldies of the '80's and 90's and turn off the radio if you don't want to have your brain washed with "money, alcohol, sex & drugs"
Much Respect fo the real Hip-Hop!
