The Rub – The History of Hip-Hop v18 (1996)

blame it on Shake February 19, 2008

As promised, here is the next installment from the trio of DJ Ayres, DJ Eleven & Cosmo Baker (The Rub). The year is 1996 (one of Shake’s personal favorites). I mean shit … Reasonable Doubt, ATLiens, All Eyes on Me, Stakes is High, Beats Rhymes & Life, Endtroducing, etc, etc … this would have been a difficult task. How do you think it came out?
