    Depends on how old you are, kids your age would probably consider it old school while people my age would not. Personally I still refer to hip hop pre 1990 as old school but I suppose some would now consider that period of hip hop as vintage.

    Same here man! Its the same with all genres of dance music aswell... i see oldskool as 80's and 90, 91 and 92... then things started changing! There was a definite change in rap styles and beats, and dance music evolved from breakbeats. Not that anyone mentioned dance music.....

    yup..EPMD first album too, NWA's straight outta compton too, Eric B & Rakim,...


    Ice cube's first album "amerikkka's most wanted" dropped in '91 if i'm not mistaken, but it sounds very old school too me (especially the beats)

    Wu-Tang Clan is Hip Hop. The bling rap is just that, rap crap. Its not Hip Hop. Don't get it twisted. Hip Hop is ageless. The veterans are better than ever.

    Hip Hop is more than music. Its a lifestyle.

    no one said its not hiphop and no one said that bling rap is good or something....... read first post again cuz when i read this topic your post looks like from some different thread......

    its just about if wu should be consider as oldschool or not......

    its not oldschool imo. its from the best years of hiphop. for me crews like epmd or ice cube isnt oldschool at all. i think as a oldschool we should consider whodini / biz markie / afrika bambaata .... the first hiphop sounds from 70-80 when hiphop was like a baby.......

    in the late 80 - early 90 the new era begins. its a golden era of hiphop imo but its not like they pioniers or something........

    ----the what you said iz truth.....wu will survive----
