    What I am after- Lords of the Underground

    Communism- Common

    The Hop- A Tribe Called Quest

    Smooth Operator- Big Daddy Kane

    Slave- Black Moon

    Hey I think these things change, but no doubt the Golden era of hiphop was the nurturing ground for the truest form of this artform we all love. Am glad I was raised that way.

    Man, tha 90's was all dope but I'ma jus' mention a few:

    Da Phelon ft. Joe Fatal - Pass The Kronz. (93')

    Da Youngstaz - It'z Natural. (QBall remix) 93'

    Black Moon - Who got the props (evil dee deadly remix) 93'

    The B.U.M.S - Out house stunt (93')

    DBC - Hit the boomz (93')

    I randomly picked on 93' but the whole 90's was golden.
