If you are truly interested in being a TRUE rap fan, this is probably the absolute most important box set of old school rap that has ever existed. We are talking about pre-run dmc days, before white folks got a chance to steal this stuff or really, even listen to it. The cuts on these albums are permeated with two very distinct themes that are overlooked and underdone in later pop rap albums. First, there is an excessive amount of "scratching" and to tell the truth, it is absolutely awesome. Back in the day, the original DJs out on the streets were out ther making art out of records and turntables. This can best be exenplified in tracks such as "Electric Boogie." Second, there is an underlying feeling of political and social anger that really does not surface again until the emergence of the politically aware messages of Public Enemy in the late 1980s. The tracks here are mostly from the late 70s and early 80s and therefore exhibit the rap movement's earliest and most raw (and legitimate) depictions of the hardships of urban black life during that time period. Unfortunately, the pop music world did an excellent job of sweeping most of this under the rug. But this box set is the real deal. I especially find the Christmas Rap" by the Treacherous Three to be an excellent example of this cynical aesthetic. Finally, the best part about this rap compilation is the fact that ALL, and I mean ALL, of it is groovin' ass music. Let us not forget that no matter what, break dancing will always be cool and there is no better source of music than this box set to do the "Breakdance, electric boogie" (in robot voice of course) to.

At present, I want to say thanks to the people who stole my account, if he did not to do that, I would not play game, I would not have Runes of Magic Gold . Although I have little Runes of Magic money , I will on the way of the game for long time. At one time or another, I am a pessimistic person, but when I have cheap Runes of Magic Gold , it changes my attitude of life.

Remembered the first time I played the game and bought wonderland Gold , it is about two years. Since the first day I bought wonderland online Gold , we should know that the day will come sooner or later. And I will not leave my wonderland money . My friends forever, even though I will leave you one day, I will remember you forever. At that time, I was a naive; I must used money to buy wonderland Gold , as that I would not depend on myself. But I was not regret to buy cheap wonderland online Gold . It is just a way bring me to the success.
