Back to.....1994...

1994


First off the bat, I want to send mad thanks to the kids that have been e-mailing me and giving this blog props, all of you that have left comments and the kind words and big ups on all of the other ill blogs listed in my list, especially Poisonous Paragraphs and Wake Your Daughter Up,Crates of A G and To The Break of Dawn and a very special thanks to Fritz, Nikolaj, Megan and Scholar Wenis..

>>>>now 1994...



Ahhhhhhh the memories, the beats,the bass lines, the loops, the rhymes, the diversity, the talent, the creativity,the MC's and groups that were doing it good for the soul and the culture.

1994 is my third favourite year in rap music, 1988 and 1992 taking first and second place respectively...

Just like those years, 94 had a certain aura and sound and so many ill and classic singles and albums were released from all over, of course from the get go when any rap fan thinks back to 1994...2 MC's and 2 Classic and essential albums come to mind right? (of course I am talking about Nas-Illmatic and B.I.G.'s-Ready To Die)

Yes?...well good we are on the same level (lol) ha ha...no it's because they are my 2 fave albums of 1994 and I hold so many fond memories from both.


But man 94 had so many, many, many other diverse and dope artists as well,it seemed that every couple of weeks there was a fresh new style, single and album and really I think that it's only when you remember back that you get what was so special about that year and that the vibe and sound that was created...


...so for the past few weeks I have spent some time on this Back To 94 compilation,I just wanted to at least try to re-create what the quality of Hip Hop was like in those days, think of this like an old Fat Tape...because a lot of these where on mixes and comps I had back in 1994...and I went through a lot of tracks and different line ups.

Peace and feel free to leave a comment if you check this...(extra special thanks to Smoov from Vinyl Addicts)
