    So, we have arrived at the third volume in the series which happens to place us in what many consider to be the "Golden Era" of Hip-Hop music. This was a time when everything really began to change in Hip-Hop both musically and culturally. This era was completely uncontrived and completely original. The plethora of quality lyricism, beats and style has not been seen since IMHO(although the years between 93-96 came damn close). we saw many MC's and groups establish themselves as true forces in the genre(PE, BDP, Ice T, NWA et al.) as well as the birth of the super-producers(The Bomb Squad, Prince Paul, Marley Marl, Dr. Dre, Erik Sermon et al.) who continue to make their presence felt in the game.

    You will notice that this volume is being broke down into three parts, which I feel completley necessary considering the staggering amount of amazing material released during this era. Many of the artists continue to make an impact while a lot of the other artists either faded out or began working in other fields of the culture whether as producers, mangement or writers.

    There has been some dispute as to what years this "Golden Age" actually covers. Some limit it to the years between 87-90, while others claim it runs somewhere between 88-93. Well, In this case the material I will consider will be from the years 88-91. That may seem like a pretty short period but you will see from the three parts that there is plenty of music here to cover and will probably have to leave some of your faves out considering the ground I have to cover. Don't worry though, It's gonna be pure heat!
