One of the biggest lyrical battles in the history of hip hop was that between MC Shan and KRS-One (of Boogie Down Productions) over the origins of the music. Hip hop began to reach mainstream audiences with songs like "Walk This Way", "Fight For Your Right To Party", and "It Takes Two".

Great mix, Snow! This is like looking in a long lost photo album. I gotta go listen to some of these songs now and relive past glories.

great mix(es). One suggestion I would have is to include the Ultramagnetic MCs for their early influence on the underground scene. Not positive on the years but it was in this time period
