Category: Nineties Hip Hop

December 13, 2013

Natural Resource is a Brooklyn three piece and (Jean Grae’s first group) that put out only a couple singles in the late 90s. Heavy Loungin’ was included on a UK import compilation that I bought back then and I couldn’t play this track enough. Until recently my crates were inaccessible so it took me a while to track down this song online. With the changeup in the middle it’s actually 2 songs crammed into 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Sheesh. 1998:

MP3: Natural Resource- Heavy Loungin

Poor Righteous Teachers 1996:


Since 90s hip hop is now a distinct category of music, it doesn’t actually have to be recorded in that decade to fit the genre.

Kid Tsunami is true hip hop from Perth, Australia, new this year:

Group Home from ’95:


Also from 1995:

MP3: Shorty Long- Be Alright

The best of the bunch for last– Screwball from ’99. What a great hook:
