This comment got me to thinking about the many incredible compilations that seemed to have went entirely unnoticed for the majority. The 90s supplied us with an endless amount of classic soundtracks, attached to their respective, and just as classic films, and for the most part featured all original music. The same went for compilations like Pump Ya Fist, A.I.D.S. or D&D Project.

While these days, kids are guido pumping their fists due to intelligence-hindering programming, kids in the mid 90s were pumping their fists for a greater cause; while the artists sought to teach the youth about knowledge of themselves. Pump Ya Fist gathered up artists who were making a positive impact on both sides of the two opposing coasts, and with the exception of one track, created an outstanding compilation. My personal favorites are selected for your listening pleasure below; now if I could just get my hands on a copy of this baby. Peace to the 7s & Earths.
