Back 2 Real Hip Hop
Brand Nubian: Three MCs and two DJs spin bouncing hip-hop beats lined with socially and politically conscious lyrics; their debut album, One for All, was a staple of ’90s turntables.
The Lost Boyz: This hip-hop trio first hit the charts in 1995 with “Lifestyles of the Rich & Shameless” before landing their first gold single, “Renee,” as featured on the soundtrack of Don’t Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.
Kwamé: With his 1989 debut, Kwamé the Boy Genius: Featuring a New Beginning, the rapper more than lived up to the album’s title by mixing old-school sounds with the peace-loving Daisy Age style.
Special Ed: “The Mission,” “Come On, Let’s Move It,” “I Got It Made,” and “Neva Go Back” are just a few of Special Ed’s rhythmically complex hits from the ’80s and ’90s.
Das EFX: If you’ve been wondering who to thank for words that end in “-iggity,” look no further than Das EFX. The influential duo made their mark with a “hyperactive lyrical style somewhat akin to hip-hop pig Latin” (AllMusic.com) on their 1992 debut, the atinum-play elling-say Dead Serious.
Roxanne Shanté: On the hip-hop scene since she was 14, she’s known for her freestyle skills and the massive hit, “Roxanne’s Revenge.”
