Obviously there was a lot of great music dropping back then but the thing that really time-stamps the era is the banter between the songs - there's a lot of 'keep it real', 'represent' and 'no diggedy', because thats how Rap People spoke back then...
Notorious BIG – One More Chance (Stay With Me)
Junior MAFIA – Player’s Anthem
Method Man – The Riddler
Luniz – I Got 5 On It
AZ – Sugarhill
Doug E Fresh – Where’s The Party At
Method Man & Redman – How High
GZA – Labels (remix)
Keith Murray – This That Hit
Raekwon & Ghostface - Criminology
