♪Tuesday Tunes♪- Hip-hop in Retrospect

Posted on June 8, 2010


Ten Beloved hip-hop tracks from (1990-2001)


I distinctly remember as if it were yesterday; coming home from school in sweet anticipation to watch Rap City on BET (back when BET wasn’t owned by Viacom……..sigh those were the days).

There is no way to rank these tracks . Each and everyone of them is a diamond in the rough.

The great thing about real hip-hop music is that it stands the test of time.
