In Tha Beginning ...There Was Rap - Tha Originals

In Tha Beginning… there was rap: Tha Originals; In Tha Beginning…there was rap (Priority) The old-school jams collected on Tha Originals remain among hip-hop’s best (and bawdiest): Tracks from N.W.A, LL Cool J, and others sound both raw and futuristically innovative despite their dusty vintage. It’s a shame that the remakes on the second volume — by chart-toppers like Wu-Tang Clan, Sean ”Puffy” Combs, and Coolio — rarely rise above retreads; only Erick Sermon, Keith Murray & Redman’s boombastic cover of Sugarhill Gang’s ”Rapper’s Delight” transcends nostalgia with head-bobbing exuberance.
