The emcee’s selections were all tapped from Hip Hop’s “Golden Age” of the 1980’s. Not surprisingly, the majority of the songs were released in 1988 – a quintessential year in the history of the culture.

“Hip Hop has had so many golden ages, but I picked the Eighties,” said the Queens, New York legend. “That’s when it turned from rock-sounding, disco-sounding s**t to the essence of rap.”
