t’s fashionable to say that the 90s were better, especially when it comes to Hip Hop. Either way Hip Hop’s golden age marks what many believe to be the genre’s zenith, when crackling funk, jazz, and soul samples mixed with banging boom bap drums and lyrics that were really about something.
The 90s stand as the heyday of the greatest, most impactful, influential artists rap has ever produced. With that in mind, we payed respect and teamed up with some iconic MCs to release the track The 90s Are Back on the previous Snowgoons Goon Bap album in 2016. Artists like OC, Dres, Onyx, Nine, Psycho Les and Ras Kass contributed to Hip Hop‘s legitimacy as an art form, without them contemporary Hip Hop as we know it nowadays wouldn’t exist.
So did A.G. (D.I.T.C.), PMD (EPMD), Smoothe Da Hustler, Mr. Cheeks (Lost Boys), Edo.G, El Da Sensei (The Artifacts), Krazy Drayz (Das EFX), Outloud (Blahzay Blahzay) and Craig G (Juice Crew) who form the team for The 90s Are Back Pt.2.
Don‘t get us wrong, this isn‘t what Hip Hop used to sound like, this is what Hip Hop suppossed to sound like!
