PBW has dropped this brilliant 10 x 7″ box set of classic 80’s hip hop joints. Apparently some of the tracks were never available before on 7″ (due to their length) so PBW has edited them especially for the project. The slices come in a super duty tuff biscuit tin with a free sticker and label artwork that is identical to the original releases. 5 Day Weekend have not cut any corners in making this dream come true for lovers of old school hip hop.
“This project is such a great honor for me to be involved with. This is one of the crowning moments of my music career, seriously. As a kid growing up in San Jose, CA when all this stuff was coming out, I was hooked and half a lifetime later I still am. I can only imagine what these songs sound like to a teenager today hearing them for the first time, just as they probably wonder what it was like for someone like me to have heard them for the first time back when it was all happening. I’ve also always wondered what it was like to grow up in one of the five boroughs in Hip Hop’s infancy in the 80s. These songs were the closest I got to knowing.” — Peanut Butter Wolf
