Phat Trax: The Best of Old School, Vol. 4

Phat Trax: The Best of Old School, Vol. 4 pays tribute to the funk and disco sounds that inspired hip-hop. Rolling, voluptuous basslines, uptight guitars, and vibrant brass sections drive tracks like Cameo's "Shake Your Pants," the Brothers Johnson's "Ain't We Funkin' Now," and Rufus & Chaka's "Do You Love What You Feel," bridging the gap between funk and disco and providing countless rap and hip-hop artists ample sampling material. Teena Marie's "Square Biz," Roy Ayers' "Don't Stop the Feeling," and Carl Carlton's "She's a Bad Mama Jama (She's Built, She's Stacked)" are among the other highlights of this funky, stylish compilation, which documents just how integral these songs were to hip-hop's development.
