My [Context] for Kanye

I think "old school" hip hop is so much sharper than a lot of music now. Soul on the sleeve, groove in the pocket.

Before Kanye came out swinging, there were these guys who knew the move.

Track List:

The Books - The Story of Hip-Hop
De La Soul - Jenifa (Taught Me)
The Roots - The Seed 2.0
Gang Starr - Rite Where U Stand
Dilated Peoples - Worst Comes to Worst
NaS - Get Down
De La Soul - Thru Ya City
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - They Reminisce Over You
Too Short ft. Eazy-E - Players Club
Mos Def - Ms. Fat Booty
The Roots - Guns are Drawn
Souls of Mischief - '93 'til Infinity
De La Soul - Eye Know
A Tribe Called Quest - Luck of Lucien
Q-Tip - What Lies Beneath
Slick Rick & OutKast - Street Talking
Jurassic 5 - If You Only Knew
Moka Only ft. MF Doom - More Soup
Hieroglyphics - Halo
GZA - Breaker Breaker
The Pharcyde - Knew U
Dead Prez - Mind Sex
