Chris Read – Classic Material Edition #4 (1990)

30 years of recorded rap music! Nach den ersten vier Teilen (1979-1983 / 1984-1987 / 1988 / 1989) folgt nun mit dem Jahr 1990 endlich der nächste Teil der “Classic Material Edition”-Reihe von Chris Read. Unter anderem mit Lord Finesse, Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace, A Tribe Called Quest, LL Cool J und Compton’s Most Wanted.

„1990 is probably most celebrated as being the birth of the ‚afro-centric‘ era, with debut albums from X-Clan, Professor X, Poor Righteous Teachers, Tribe, Brand Nubian and many others hitting the stores during the year. But 1990 was also an important year for the artists from the opposite end of the spectrum: Compton’s Most Wanted, CPO and Above The Law all released debut albums proving LA had plenty to offer beyond established artists such as Ice T or NWA. In the UK the harder edged sounds of cult acts including Hardnoise, Hijack and Gunshot developed their own niche audience. Aside from new developments, established artists including LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy and EPMD all dropped certified classics.“
