Throwback Thursday: History of Hip-Hop 1993

I’ve decided to throw a classic mixtape on my web log every Thursday, and I needed a truly original name for the series, so I came up with Throwback Thursdays.  I hope the name isn’t taken!

This is one I did for The Rub History of Hip-Hop series, and it just landed in the top ten Best of Mixcloud 2012, even though I mixed it in 2008 and the music is all from 1993.  So it’s like wearing a throwback over another throwback.  Way back!  Back into time.

I was 17 in 1993 and I have very fond memories of driving around in a Chrysler listening to tapes by the Beatnuts, Alkoholiks, Tribe Called Quest, Das EFX, Ice Cube, etc etc.  TBH I feel like Hip-Hop History 1994 was a stronger mix, but 1993 has way more streams, so I assume somebody famous tweeted about it or something.  But the entire History of Hip-Hop series is awesome, with one mix per year from 1979-2009 mixed by Cosmo, Eleven or me, and can be found here and here.
