Tige Fresh Top 3 plus one more!
1. Doug E. Fresh and M.C. Ricky D
This is one of my oldest hip hop memories. My buddy Daniel had this tape from the swap meet and I remember him showing it to me at his bus stop. He played it for me and it was so crazy!!!! I heard it shortly after that on the radio on the Dr. Demento show! I fell in love! That was the first place I heard a lot of hip hop back then because it was considered a novelty, and AZ radio was not having it. Classic beat box and mc'ing!! Super funny and Entertaining! DOPE!!!! Shout out Dr. Demento!!!
2. Public Enemy “Bring the Noise”
“It Takes A Nation of Million to Hold Us Back” might be my favorite album of all time! Ask me to quote a song I’m screaming “BASS, HOW LOW CAN YOU GO? DEATH ROW, WHAT A BROTHER KNOW?” Noisy production from the Bomb Squad, Chuck D drops the knowledge, Flav keeps it moving, And Terminator X (Johnny Juice)scratching!!!! Wow! Amazing hip hop!
3. Big Daddy Kane
“Ain’t No Half Stepping”
BDK=GOAT! This is my man! The Smooth Operator!! I love this cut and album! The Emotions sample with the slowed down ESG UFO, Fire! Mr. Cee cutting up Billy Squires “Big Beat” lyrics, bonus.(I have practiced those cuts). BDK goes off on this amazing slice of 80’s greatness. This song is pure hip hop braggadocio!! BDK is Legend!

Eric B. & Rakim
Rakim is so nice on this track! So hard and Simply perfection!! The AWB sample kills with the stupid fresh lyrics!! I am a FIEND!! I’ve melted many cones of ice cream to this one. Bless the god mc!!
