That means fans can relive the days cheap thrills of his bedroom, as they try to live versions of progress Snoop Dogg “Doggystyle”, A Tribe Called Quest Midnight Marauders “by Wu-Tang Clan” Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), “Eric B. and Rakim from “Paid in Full, KRS-One and Boogie Down Productions” Criminal Minded “and Slick Rick” the great Adventures of Slick Rick. ”

Before the tour hits Shoreline Amphitheatre on Sunday, we wanted to go to the classics that led to the headliner back to the vaults.

Snoop Dogg

“Doggystyle” (1993)

When it all began for the ubiquitous rapper from Los Angeles, which has since led his multiplatinum career with roles in major films and a reality TV family. Just 22 and fresh from the streets, in songs like “Murder Was the Case” and “Gz Up, Hoes Down”, horsetail Dr. Dre protected delivered incisive tales of gangsta life (and death) through his accent disconcertingly comfortable. The album practically defined the sound of western rap in the 90s. For this performance, was joined onstage by Warren G, Tha Dogg Pound, Lady of Rage and RBX.

A Tribe Called Quest

“Midnight Marauders” (1993)

May not represent the most innovative work of the Queens rap trio – its 1991 predecessor, “The Low End Theory”, probably get to pitch – but that he is again. With the hit “Award Tour”, the third installment of the tribe of long duration in the group was moving away from soft jazz samples of limericks for a harder-edged sound accompanied by a robotic voice narrator Laura Dern. She probably will not be on hand to repeat the role in Mountain View.

Wu-Tang Clan

“Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)” (1993)

Heavily influenced by martial arts films of the era, the nine-piece collective from Staten Island did so much for the scene of the East Coast hip-hop with the opening of this explosion sandy as Snoop was doing across the country. Soul samples battling audio clips kung fu movies and minor key piano stabs, while rowdy rappers microphone pass play in minor works such as “Da Mystery of” Chessboxin “and” Protect Ya Neck. “All the original members are scheduled to appear at the Rock the Bells with Dirty B***d of the late Ol ‘eldest son, Boy Jones, taking the place of his father.

Eric B. and Rakim

“Paid in Full” (1987)

A game-changing statement from the golden age of hip-hop, the duo’s first album in New York, was recorded in just one week with the rapper Rakim come up with your rhymes famous stoic in just one hour. DJ Eric B., meanwhile, was the first to build songs from James Brown samples, working with their peers exquisitely scratching skills on songs like “Eric B. Is President” and “I Know You Got Soul.” Rakim performs solo album in the Rock the Bells.

Boogie Down


“Criminal Minded” (1987)

Rapper KRS-One boasted openly about sex, guns and beating rivals in the first album Boogie Down Productions, establishing the template for most people to follow. Things that differentiate their flights were remarkably articulate verbal and musical daring strokes of DJ Scott La Rock, bringing together funk, metal and reggae. After La Rock was killed just weeks after the album came out, KRS-One dropped the gangster pose, embracing a socially conscious stance on subsequent broadcasts such as “By Any Means Necessary” and “Edutainment.”

Slick Rick

“The Great

Adventures of Slick Rick “(1988)

Amy Winehouse’s favorite rapper is a British-American MC who wears a patch over his eye and spent five years in prison on charges of attempted murder at the height of his popularity. Sampling everyone from Dionne Warwick to the Mahavishnu Orchestra (with a lot of James Brown), built on their first album fun, sing-song raps about seemingly innocuous gritty downtown struggles. Unfortunately, no longer wears the red beret. () Sbox
