Hip Hop Sh-t

by Rome

Everyone complains about how hip hop is dead and its wack, etc.

To start your week off right and finish your year off with some classic “underground/backpacker rap” here is the latest version of Mark Ronsons Authentic Sh-t radio show on East Village Radio. This weeks edition features DJ Eli and his homie Nasty Vaz looking back on New York hip hop and culture in the mid to late 90s. The bonus to this is that they play a grip of underground hip hop and songs that you probably haven’t heard ever in a long time. Download both parts below and break out your mixtapes from ’96.
