A to the L €™s 100 Favorite Hiphop Albums Of All Time (Part 4)

100 List Part 4

Wow. I thought I’d have this completed thew full 100 by this Monday. I guess with having a real-life of sorts at times, its cut into the amount of time I’d love to spend sitting in front of a computer, completely unappreciated, making lists for people who don’t give a fuck.

The Rebirth Of Classic Obsession Tour, Japan (by Sam Frank, The Oceanboom)

In the mid 70 €™s DJs, rappers, promoters, artists, dancers, and music fans alike aligned their talents with music to demonstrate the many breathtaking facets of urban culture which emanated from America €™s concrete jungles. Fueled by its fresh and unrivaled sound, hip hop became the youth €™s loudest and most prolific voice used to spread the message of €œone love € throughout inner city communities.
