Pure... Hip-Hop

Like the other Pure… sets, Pure... Hip-Hop is a cheaply priced four-disc box set that is heavy on hits, while there are plenty of deeper -- but smartly chosen -- cuts as well. This one spans the '80s, '90s, and 2000s. It's led by Cypress Hill's "How I Could Just Kill a Man," Special Ed's "I Got It


Like the other Pure… sets, Pure... Hip-Hop is a cheaply priced four-disc box set that is heavy on hits, while there are plenty of deeper -- but smartly chosen -- cuts as well. This one spans the '80s, '90s, and 2000s. It's led by Cypress Hill's "How I Could Just Kill a Man," Special Ed's "I Got It Made," Too Short's "Life Is Too Short," Goodie Mob's "Cell Therapy," OutKast's "So Fresh, So Clean," and Clipse's "When the Last Time." There are a couple stylistic outliers, like Ini Kamoze and Zhane, but it still offers a useful, if somewhat random, assortment of rap singles.
