"Just when I thought Millennium Hip-Hop Party couldn't be topped this comes along and proved me wrong. If you have the Millenium Hip-Hop Party you owe it to yorself to buy this. If you are into hip-hop you must buy. You can't go wrong with this CD."
An adult guide to old school

"Twenty years after "Rapper's Delight", there are still a significant number of adults who do not feel that hip-hop is a legitimate musical form. The arguements are varied: "It all sounds the same", "It's just disgusting", "It has nothing to say", and my personal favorite "It's not REAL music."I seem to recall exactly the same arguments were raised about Rock 'n' Roll in the Fifties. To those who still espouse such views, I offer as contrary evidence, this fine compendium of some of the best Hip Hop of the last two decades. I'd recommend it over the first volume, and how rarely does a sequel surpass the original?, as it drops the novelty factor in so many early rap hits and concentrates on songs that truly hold up over time.Three tracks truly stand out. Grandmaster Flash's "The Message" is an elegant angry poem, closer to literature than to pop. Ignored in its day, it deserves it's place in Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Singles of All Time. Those of you who do not recognize the title may be familiar with the chorus: "It's like a jungle sometimes. It makes me wonder how I keep from going under." Every American schoolchild should be required to recite the entire text of the song, as a fable, a parable, a history and a lesson.Based on Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise" track from the brilliant Songs in the Key of Life album, Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" covers similar ground. It was the #1 song of the year.The jazz/hip-hop fusion of Arrested Development should be enough to convert any remaining non-believer."

"I origianally bought the CD for the song by Papberboy. However, I listen to most of the songs when I'm driving in the car. I received the CD quickly.
