Product Description:

The companion to Ice-T's 2012-released hip-hop documentary, this disc provides a small sampling of the best rap music released throughout the '80s and '90s, along with a 2007 track from Public Enemy. That makes the disc ideal for younger rap fans whose frame of reference dates back no earlier than 2000. Its flaw is the absence of southern representation -- no Geto Boys, OutKast, or even UGK, despite Bun B's appearance in the film -- but no inclusion is unworthy, from the underground classics (Schoolly D's "P.S.K. 'What Does It Mean?'") to the crossover hits (Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock's "It Takes Two"). The sequence is broken up by a handful of on-the-spot a capella exclusives from KRS-One, Immortal Technique, Melle Mel, Ras Kass, Brand Nubian's Lord Jamar, Grandmaster Caz, and Ice-T himself. ~ Andy Kellman
