If one genre of music has had a revolutionary impact on the world it's Hip Hop!
30 years after the birth of the scene, Hip Hop has extended into a global force and once again Ministry of Sound returns for the New Year with a brand new heavyweight album from the best selling series of all time.
'Anthems Hip Hop' was the first ever 100% Hip Hop compilation to hit No.1 on the official UK compilation charts and what's more this next episode is set to be more colossal and superior than ever before. This brand new instalment supersedes the gravitas of the original album; offering back-to-back club bangers, underground classics and, without question, many of the biggest rap hits of all time.
The influential pioneers of this unique culture are all present on this essential release. CD 1 kicks off with a lesson from the founders of the scene with tracks from inspirational artists such as Run DMC, The Sugarhill Gang, N.W.A, Naughty By Nature and the legendary Grandmaster Flash.
Moving into the second CD we unveil an incredible array of lyrical genius from the names that took hip-hop from the underground to the mainstream, with likes of The Notorious B.I.G, Jay-Z, Cypress Hill and the almighty Wu-Tang Clan packing some serious punches.
We 'rap' things up with progression into the modern era with a collection of fresh and classic cuts from the biggest chart topping names including 50 Cent, Eminem and Dizzee Rascal!
This is the Definitive Heavyweight Hip Hop Album!!
