30 years ago this week, De La Soul’s “De La Soul Is Dead”, Ice T’s “O.G. Original Gangster”, KMD’s “Mr. Hood” and Chubb Rock’s “The One” were all released. As such, May 14th, 1991 stands as one of the best rap release dates ever.
A special shout-out to Dart Adams for always coming correct with the research and knowledge. A lot of the release dates you find online are wrong. And some people even forgot about the Chubb Rock release when it is a certified classic.
I close off the show by paying homage to those four classic albums that all came out on the same day 30 years ago, but not before blessing you with 90 minutes of great new hip-hop.
