Best Hip Hop Anthems Ever

At the time this was the double CD of hip-hop tunes I'd been looking for. Nearly every track is a classic, from Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and Sugarhill Gang early 80s experiments, through Public Enemy and NWA to then current stars Coolio and Warren G (although not the version of "Regulate" which features the Michael McDonald sample which Chris Morris used to play - whatever happened to that version?). There was even a new discovery for me, "I Got Five On It" by Luniz.

The only disappointment is sound quality. It's poorly mastered and the tunes seem to fade into each other.

This was almost a perfect compilation, but I'm afraid it has to go... that's how I'm livin'.
