Consisting of 55 chronologically ordered tracks across three CDs and a fourth disc featuring a 60 minute mix by Grandmaster Flash, this collection represents excellent value for money and it's more or less a definitive history of hip-hop. Given that it's aimed at the mass market there are loads of mainstream crowd pleasers but there are also a lot of lesser known gems. The first disc is full of old school hip-hop classics (A Tribe Called Quest, N.W.A, Eric B & Rakim, etc.) and it's the best here - the beats and the clever use of samples are at times jaw-dropping. Grandmaster's mix is nothing particularly special but for the money, you can't complain too much. Clocking in at a few minutes short of a mammoth 5 hours, it’s housed in a neat triple gatefold digipak. Existing hip-hop fans and newcomers will find much to enjoy.

Cracking hip-hop retrospective, from the legend that is. Covers each era but has a few artists I'd never heard of until now - but all makes for a great playlist!

Bought this for my husband as most of the tracks remind him of his miss spent youth !
He loves it, plenty of classics and a few we didn't know but are just as good
Great for in the car and reminiscing :)

Fantastic collection of hip hop music, including some all time classics and some lesser known tracks. Perfect for someone who wants to get into hip-hop music and wants a way to get a taste for the genre.

It's grandmaster flash, what more do you want, yes you may have heard of the artists that are featured but not the tracks. This should be in your collection.

Good but not enough old school hip hop or electro for me but did like the underground tunes that I had not heard before,
with a good DJ mix to finish it off! I hope he does a follow up!!

Great collection of hip hop compiled by one of the pioneers. For the amount of music you receive it's a complete bargain. Highly recommend
