Various Artists - The Massive Sounds Of Rap Legends Archive (3 Discs)



You know DaddyRich couldn't stay away from the old school for too long, right? I could find no information on this one - so my apologies in advance for the lack of cover photo's and such. The inclusion of some of these rappers whom I have never heard of leads me to believe that this is a U.K release of some sort. Also, the inclusion of Tupac and B.I.G. leads me to believe that they whoever pieced it together has no real idea of what 'old school' means - but I digress. Whether those cuts are a detraction from the whole I will let you good people decide - I can say that overall I dig it. I am usually always grateful for any document (however bad sounding or hastily put together) from that wonderful golden era of music. The odd numbering of cuts leads me to believe I have an incomplete copy of this, but any b-boy would agree that SOME of this is a lot better than NONE of it. As ever, if someone else has some information they would like to share - please do, it's always welcome. Peace.
