Overview

The fourth volume of Rhino's hip-hop history series includes Dana Dane's stream-of-consciousness/dream raps, the silliness of The Fat Boys and Spyder D, early and pivotal work by Run-D.M.C. and sassy, confrontational material from Roxanne Shante. At this stage, rap still sounds less strident and more novelty/comical, not addressing any issues beyond the verbal skills of individual disc jockeys. The production hasn't progressed that much either; the bulk of the tracks feature a straight, primary beat with some scratching and a rapper performing over it; even the verbal styles are slower.
