Anyone who is a fan and student of hip hop knows that the genre was built on the back of a ton of classic rare soul music. This past weekend, we came across this incredible collection of seminal soul music that is responsible for many of hip hop’s early Golden Era hits as well as some contemporary hits. Including classics like “Give It Up or Turn it Loose” and “Apache”, this comp will give you everything you need for that next samples debate. Although the tracklist is unavailable, most of these song title and artists can be found using a tool like Shazam or Soundhoud on your mobile phone. Enjoy.
