93-96 were the four greatest years in hip hop, when it comes to the amount of quality of music released.

the late 80s are probably the 'greatest' years when you consider legendary + influential rap groups, but even if i like more groups from that era, my favorite stuff is from 93-96.

someone should do a poll of what your favorite year was out of 93, 94, 95, & 96.
