Though it's a budget compilation, the two-disc Old School Hip-Hop Jams is actually a pretty good collection of tracks from some of the more popular rap acts of the late '80s and early '90s. There are a few unnecessary remix versions included (Ice Cube's "Check Yo Self," Black Sheep's "The Choice Is Yours"), along with a typo (it's "Just to Get a Rep") and the requisite budget "huh?" cut (Michie Mee & L.A. Luv's "Jamaican Funk: Canadian Style"), but there are also a lot of really great selections, among them Main Source's "Live at the Barbeque," Eric B. & Rakim's "Paid in Full," Naughty by Nature's "O.P.P.," and Jeru the Damaja's "Come Clean." Yeah, LL Cool J, KRS-One, Public Enemy, and Tribe are all excluded (though Q-Tip is featured on De La Soul's "Buddy"), but it's still pretty representative of hip-hop's golden age, and a pretty decent way to be exposed to what was happening during that time.
