Beats & Rhymes: Hip-Hop of the 90's, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
With the three-volume Beats & Rhymes: Hip-Hop of the '90s, Rhino attempts to sketch a history of rap in the early '90s, before gangsta rap dominated the marketplace. Hip-hop was thriving between 1990 and 1993, as both veteran artists like Boogie Down Productions and new crews like A Tribe Called Quest began pursuing adventurous territory, fusing hip-hop with jazz and pop, among other things.

With the three-volume Beats & Rhymes: Hip-Hop of the '90s, Rhino attempts to sketch a history of rap in the early '90s, before gangsta rap dominated the marketplace. Hip-hop was thriving between 1990 and 1993, as both veteran artists like Boogie Down Productions and new crews like A Tribe Called Quest began pursuing adventurous territory, fusing hip-hop with jazz and pop, among other things. There aren't many big crossover hits on any of the three volumes, but there are big names and cuts that were important in the underground. Unfortunately, there's some mediocre stuff mixed in with the prime cuts, but the bulk of each disc is so strong -- and the set's budget-line price is so attractive -- that the entire series functions as an excellent primer, especially when the liner notes by Harry Allen are added into the equation. Among the highlights on the 15-track Beats & Rhymes: Hip-Hop of the '90s, Vol. 1 are cuts by A Tribe Called Quest "Bonita Applebum", the D.O.C. "It's Funky Enough", Main Source "Looking at the Front Door", Poor Righteous Teachers "Rock Dis Funky Joint", Big Daddy Kane "I Get the Job Done", and Jungle Brothers "Doin' Our Own Dang".
