The Rub Hip Hop History Downloads

Now, many of you may have come across these before but the 1979 version came on shuffle on my ipod whilst I was hoovering this afternoon and I thought why not whack it up here?

The 1979 edition can be downloaded here and it features Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, Kurtis Blow, The Sequence, Funky 4+1 and more classics from the year that is widely recognised as the first time Hip Hop was committed to wax.

What struck me so much about this mix is how much from those formative years has been reused and recycled over the last 30 years. Educate yo'self.

Then you can download a mix for every year from 1979 to 1999 as well as a 90s mix. Do it. You can also take some time to snoop around The Rub's website to find out what DJ Ayers and DJ Eleven get upto (check the mp3s for the mashups and remixes).
