Overview

A partnership between Rolling Stone and Sony BMG, The Masters of Hip-Hop is a 16-track compilation that mines rap music through the early '90s, with an undeniably classic lineup that includes Run-D.M.C.'s "It's Tricky," Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks," Afrika Bambaataa's "Planet Rock," N.W.A's "Straight Outta Compton," and Queen Latifah's "Ladies First." Despite the lack of a parental advisory label, the versions of these tracks are uncensored. If you're just getting into '80s and early-'90s rap, this is a decent (if arbitrary) assortment with no duds, and it might also be useful for those looking to fill a few gaps. (At the time of its release, a handful of the original albums represented here were out of circulation.) A cheap release, it comes with a free offer for a dozen issues of Rolling Stone magazine.
