The Rub Presents: A History of Hip-Hop Mixtapes: 1979 – 1999

For the hip-hop enthusiasts out there – especially 80’s/90’s hip-hop – here are 21 solid mixtapes compiled by year.  The mixes are set chronologically beginning in 1979 when hip-hop burst onto the scene and are archived all the way up until 1999.  Think of this as an historical opus to the birth and evolution of hip-hop from Grandmaster Flash and Sugarhill Gang to NWA, Public Enemy, LL Cool J, and Run DMC to A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Naughty by Nature to Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg, and Tupac to the Wu-Tang Clan, Gang Starr, Nas, and Notorious B.I.G. to everything else in between.  If you’re looking to increase your hip-hop IQ, check out some mixtapes after the jump.
