This 80's classic still shines today

This debut album from the legendary Hip Hop duo EPMD made waves when it was released in 1988.  With raw sample-heavy beats and VERY laid back but clever rhymes, this album influenced many that came after it.  Listening to this album over 30 years later it still sounds brilliant.  It perfectly reflects the golden era of Hip Hop where you had to have good rhymes, a good DJ, and use a song on your album to attempt to start a dance craze.  While practically no one is doing the Steve Martin today: EPMD are still performing and have certainly left their mark on Hip Hop.  If you are in the mood for funky danceable hip hop look no further.
