    shiittt.... back in 95 CALIFORNIA LOVE DRE AND PAC, this shit hooked up me on hip-hop. in that time i was on different shit, from techno to some bullshit rave, was big fan of PRODIGY (not the rapper, other pordigy, techno shit). but one summer day i bought some pirate ass cassette, greatest hits street ball rap 95 or something. and first track was Pac & Dre California love.... damn.

    the other day i threw away all techno shit and got into hip hop, ofc i started from west side hh. Pac, Dre, Snoop, Cypress, Warren G, Nate, Ice Cube nou doubt, Ice T etc... and ofc PUBLIC ENEMY. i discovered some much dope shit that year.... good times...

    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    Public Enemy - Bring the Noise
    Wu-Tang - Method Man
    Tribe Called Quest - the entirety of The Low End Theory

    Don't know. How can you guys narrow it down to one song?

    I think I became a hip hop fan around 13/14 from OutKast, Missy, Eminem, Dr Dre etc.

    Although the first cd i bought before I even liked rap was Will Smith.

    Not asking you to pick a favorite. Just what was the first hip hop you experienced that made you want more?
