    Rakim flow and lyrics are still better than most current day spitters, Eric B production obviously sounds dated but that's not a bad thing

    Thats a tough question. I still jam to Sugar hill if it comes on. I got some old school to me though. Plenty old school I still fck with but not all the time or anything. Some of that Kurtis Blow I can see sayin it sounds dated, some of the Whodini but 5 minutes of Funk still snappin to me. To give a few examples. So there's a lot of it that still good now to me.

    YOU CAN STILL BUMP ANYTHING FROM AQUEMINI ON UP AND IT SOUNDS NEW

    They said pioneers tho. Rappers from 84-87.

    Cube was arguably my favorite from 88. But dudes rhymes been 🤬 butt cheeks since 2000 and up

    Master Ace ........ while, not a pioneer ...... he's a late 80's rapper that still puts it down

    De La Soul ....... also not pioneers ...... but late 80's rappers that pen game is 'steel' sharp

    MC Lyte ...... late 80's .....I believe she still has a hot 16 left in the tank

    Rev Run ..... a pioneer of rappers with a record deal ....... could quite possibly pen a decent 16 right now

    Here's a DJ Hollywood freestyle from 2012. For those that don't know, Hollywood was a Harlem DJ in the late 70s when Hip Hop was being born in The Bronx. The Harlem style was distinctly different from The Bronx style.

    Personally I'd rather listen to Hollywood over these new jacks.
