    With the second volume of the series we are going to head straight into the “New School” sound from around ’84-87 with some relevant material from ’88 as well. The major difference you’ll notice is the evolution from the “Disco Rap” style that was the dominant sound to the more aggressive and raw 909/drum machine sound aka the “New School”. With the shift in sound came a serious shift in lyrical content. The simple back and forth style gave way to the braggadocio and boasting of MC’s lyrical skills, money, women and home turf. You can see that the MC realized there really could be more to this element than just the party leader. There was opportunity to say something with depth or force. Of course, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five were huge influences in that regard. The MC Also began to sharpen his word play with more intricate word use and rhyme patterns.

    There is some representation of the early West Coast style but it is still pretty much a NYC thing here. Even though it is such a short period of time the evolution of the style and skill still remains impressive. Most of the artists in this volume really established the ground work for the years to come. It is also quite impressive that most the artists in this volume either remained relevant for a serious amount of time afterward or continue to remain a relevant force in the genre. The artists featured here will be well represented in the years to follow as well, into what many consider the "Golden Age" of Hip-Hop.
