7 hot hip hop tracks and some filler -- wrong track listing

""Diggin 3" has two track titles wrong, though. Wrong artists, wrong title -- wrong song altogether. The selection of tracks itself is acceptable, but it seems that the person doing the track listing -- I picture a non-hip hop graphic artist or a record label intern -- didn't know the songs and apparently tried to logically deduce which songs they were.
Track 7 is listed as "Rockin' It" by the Fearless Four. This is actually "The New Rap Language" by The Treacherous Three. However, the Treacherous Three say the word "rock" a ridiculous amount of times on this song. Plus, the Treacherous Three was named after it's original three members, but by the time they recorded "The New Rap Language" they actually had four members, having added the young Kool Moe Dee, easily recognizable on this track because it is the best early showcase of his innovative "speed rap" that I know of.
Track 10 is listed as "Superrappin'" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five. This is actually another 1979 track of epic length by the Funky 4 + 1 -- "Rappin' And Rockin' The House." The track lister deserves a major gas face on this one -- The Furious 5 never had a woman, as in Sha Rock, who was the "plus one" of the Funky 4 + 1.
If anyone else has this CD and is looking for the correct tracks and years -- unlisted on the CD insert, which is not surprising if "Hot Productions" didn't get the track names right -- here it is. Source of years is my own research, some more reliable than others.
*"Double Dutch Bus" by Frankie Smith (1981)
*"Boogie Down Bronx" by JVC Force (1988)
"Set It Out" by Midway (1984)
"Bass Drum Ma Bass Drum" by George Kranz (1985)
"Eat Em' Up (Yum Yum)" by Beat Box Boys (1984)

* = the hot tracks
The Captain Sky song is kind of funny as well, as he milks the gum metaphor for all it's worth."
