Overview

If you're aching to revisit a kinder, gentler period in hip-hop music, when it wasn't fashionable to boast about being a gangsta, hustler, or a playa, then Rhino's NEW MILLENNIUM HIP-HOP PARTY is the perfect balm. Packed with positive and upbeat hits from the late '80s and the early '90s, this 18-track collection is sure to spark any house party with infectious hip-hop classics such as Tone Loc's "Wild Thing," Arrested Development's "People Everyday," and Naughty by Nature's "O.P.P." Other memorable jams here include De La Soul's progressive "Me, Myself, and I," M.C. Hammer's Prince-inspired "Pray," DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's sunny "Summertime," and the Notorious B.I.G.'s poetic "Juicy." Although the odd inclusion of Shaquille O'Neal's obscure "(I Know I Got) Skillz" puts a wrinkle in its flow, this HIP-HOP PARTY is chock full of winners and gives hip-hop fans a nostalgic glimpse back at rap's mellower golden era.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
The sequel to Rhino's terrifically entertaining Millennium Hip-Hop Party compilation, New Millennium Hip-Hop Party features more of rap's best crossover pop hits, dipping a little later into the mid-'90s than its predecessor (cuts from Coolio, the Notorious B.I.G., and the Wu-Tang Clan, which demonstrate the infiltration of gangsta themes into a greater variety of mainstream hip-hop). But for the most part, the collection still covers pop-rap's late-'80s/early-'90s heyday, when some of the most creative sounds in hip-hop were also among its most playful and accessible. There are cuts from some of the first alternative rappers (De La Soul's "Me Myself & I," A Tribe Called Quest's "Scenario," Arrested Development's "People Everyday"), plus flat-out great singles like Naughty by Nature's "O.P.P.," Run-D.M.C.'s "You Be Illin'," DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince's "Summertime," Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock's "Joy and Pain," Mellow Man Ace's "Mentirosa," Tone Loc's "Wild Thing," Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five's "The Message," and even more. Like the first installment, New Millennium Hip-Hop Party is an excellent way to collect some of the most compulsively listenable hip-hop singles yet recorded.
