History of Hip Hop 2011

As The Rub’s History of Hip Hop mix series moves into the teens, the range of styles ever widens, touching on everything from classic soul samples to weird dubstep beats. (Watch The Throne had both.) Drake, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross were featured on everything; Juicy J. was putting out mixtapes at an astonishing rate, and Meek Mill had a couple of career-defining hits. J. Cole, Big Sean, Future, A$AP Mob, Odd Future and the Black Hippy crew were the new kids on the block, and Kreayshawn and YC were the year’s biggest one hit wonders. In R&B, both The Weeknd and Frank Ocean debuted in 2011. All told, it’s a pretty incredible year to revisit!

So enjoy this blast from the recent past, and remember you can catch up on all of The Rub History of Hip Hop mixes (1979 – 2010) at http://www.itstherub.com/category/history-of-hip-hop/.

History of Hip Hop 2010

Fans of The Rub’s History of Hip Hop series have been asking for new episodes since 2009, and your dreams have finally been fulfilled! We pick up right where we left off, and we’ll be dropping another year every month until we’re caught up.

2010 was dominated by a few big stars – Young Money’s Nicki Minaj, Drake and Lil Wayne were on the radio and in clubs nonstop, along with huge hits by Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, and Kanye. Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T. and J. Cole were the hot up-and-comers. It was Ludacris and Jeezy’s last really stellar year, and we also got surprising comeback singles from Dipset, Lloyd Banks, Nas and Big Boi. And 2010 was a great year for producers, including Lex Luger, AraabMuzik, Clams Casino, Stargate and of course Kanye West and Swizz Beats.

So enjoy this blast from the recent past, and remember you can catch up on all of The Rub History of Hip Hop mixes (1979 – 2010) at http://www.itstherub.com/category/history-of-hip-hop/.

All I Do Is Win Win Win

#1 DJ Ayres “Sunshine At Midnight”

WOW!  OK so this is a mix I did for Malibu Rum early last year, and then promptly forgot about.  Nearly 70,000 streams later, it topped Mixcloud’s Best of 2014 list.  To celebrate, I’ve uploaded a “Director’s Cut” of the mix – a slightly different second version which was rejected in favor of the original version I turned in.
