The Electric Adolescence Hip Hop Hall of Fame

The Electric Adolescence Hip Hop Hall of Fame

Back when the hip-hop was an open source phenomenon, a generation of producers and emcees raced to define it, having no road-map to mainstream success, and an industry still skeptical of what they dismissed as a fad. Eventually this acceptance came, as did the cash, and hip-hop found itself aligned with the pop-charts in a way its pioneers would have considered unthinkable. The following is a selection of cuts from back in the day when rap was like freshly poured concrete waiting for a new generation of street kids to leave a mark that would last forever.
