Mark Anthony Neal :: What’s in Your Hip-Hop Canon?

When you get to our age, making hip-hop canons is definitely a Steely Dan kind of thing–“Hey Nineteen, that’s Aretha Franklin/She don’t know the Queen of Soul”–done out of being aghast, AGHAST at how little, LITTLE the kids know.

What a false emotion. That’s why I try not to do it.

But then your homie comes along and does something like this and this, and you go, wait, Very Necessary? Not Hot, Cool & Vicious? Drop the crack pipe, old man!

I do heartily co-sign my man’s opinion on this though.

Anyway, all this is to say, if you liked this, you will LOVE THIS. Guaranteed.
