WoW, now that''s a throw back look! lol. I miss those days, I watch VH1 soul late night on the eastcoast just to reminess about the old days and to keep me grounded.

I know its a little corny but I strive to make that golden era sound. I was brought up on Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Fat Boys, Kurtis Blow-- heres my tribute!



To me, Old School is all the good music from the 70's through the 90's!  The 90's just got added in my world!  As far as R&B, we have many great artist, groups and duos to enjoy.  As far as Hip Hop, we have the Sugar Hill Gang, Run DMC, Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh, actually we have a lot of Hip Hop artist too!


I prefer the old school to most of the stuff out here today!

I started out as a DJ at WJMO in Cleveland, back in the 70's. And I guess it all depends on the style of music. I'm not sure you could apply the term "Old School" to music from then, as it is more a modern term related to Hip-Hop/Rap, which was coined back in the day (80's I believe). But being a DJ in the early 80's during the more or less explosion of the genre' (i.e. - Sugarhill, Salt & Pepper, Run DMC, Sir Mix-Alot, Big Daddy Kane, Kid N Play, and especially a lot of the indie artists. The list goes on. But using the term "Old School", could basically apply to songs before the present time. I usually like to go in 10 year spans.
My Old School has to be: Run D.M.C Raising Hell 86'
Boogie Down Productions Criminal Minded 87'
Beastie Boys Licensed to Ill 86'
Eric B. & Rakim Paid in Full 87'
Public Enemy Yo! Bum Rush the Show 87'
LL Cool J BAD: Bigger and Deffer 87'
Schoolly D 87'
Salt'n'Pepa Hot, Cool Vicious 86'
Too $hort Born to Mack 86'
Just Ice Kool & Deadly 87'
Whodini Back in Black 86'
Dana Dane Dana Dane-Dana Dane With Fame 
Doug E. Fresh Oh My God! 86'
DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince Rock the House 87'
Just-Ice Just Ice-Back to the Old School
Stetsasonic On Fire 86'
Masters of Ceremony
Kool Moe Dee How Ya Like Me Now 87'
Ice-T Rhyme Pays 87'
Curtis Blow!
