Lad Makes Massive Playlist Tracing The Journey Of Hip Hop
Some lad on 8tracks.com, an internet radio website, has gone seriously out of his way to appease both veteran hip-hop fans and budding rookies.
'MCAforPresident' has rewound the long history of the genre from 2001 back to 1986 and comprised its devolution - obviously don't mean in the bad sense - into a whopper of a playlist.
Its devolution, going from the likes of Jay Z and Mos Def, back through the notorious East Coast-West Coast horn-locking of the '90s, ending in its South Bronx '80s roots.
Given the sheer span of it, it's hard to compliment every single slice.
But, if you've got a lot of spare time, give it a listen.
Hopefully it will not disappoint.
