Always nice to see another hip hop thread! Here's a few that i hope fit the bill.
A bit of Del from '91 (produced by Ice Cube)
And this is right on the cusp of being too late for the Golden Era (depending on who you're asking!) but Kool Keith has got to get a mention, and Dr
Octagon from '96 is some of the best he has to offer in my opinion!
I heard this on the radio back in 1996 and right after the song played, the radio dj said "that was Lost Boyz with their brand new single RENEE" I
wrote the name down, went to the record store a few days later and found this gem called Legaldrugmoney. One of my best purchases ever.
Another one, what Cappa did to this beat should be illegal, this is how you KILL a beat!
Great album as well, probably my favorite out of the original wu-solos. (I put it above Cubanlinx & Liquid swords)
A 15 year old me had never heard somebody do what Cap did on this track though....wasn't until 2-3 years later when I witnessed Canibus dismantle the
beasts from the east...but that's a story for another day.
