I'm back and I've got such a treat for you chaps. Cosmo Baker, DJ Ayres, and DJ Eleven of The Rub have been presenting their history of hip-hop year by year on BrooklynRadio.net and they've uploaded each year as a download and stream, it's your choice.
That's 30 years of hip-hop definitively explained and analysed. It is, of course, American-centric but that's to be expected but the lack of foreign hip-hop should not detract from the sheer WOW factor that this post gives me. You can either dip in and out or you can listen chronologically. I've done the former and can confirm these guys know their onions. I think I just died and gone to hip-hop heaven!
