Rap Traxx Compilations


Did anyone else out there collect the Rap Traxx series of hip-hop compilation cds that came out in the late 80s and early 90s, or was I the only one?

I totally dug Rap Traxx, especially Rap Traxx 2.  Here are the tunes that appeared on Rap Traxx 2.

# Artist Song Length 1 Bust A Move Young M.C. 4:29 2 Buffalo Stance Neneh Cherry 5:46 3 Funky Cold Medina Tone Loc 4:12 4 Joy and Pain Rob Base & D.J. EZ Rock 3:49 5 My Philosophy Boogie Down Productions  6:41 6 Nightmare on My Street D.J. Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince  4:54 7 Say No Go De La Soul 4:23 8 I'm That Type of Guy L.L. Cool J 5:20 9 How Ya Like Me Now Kool Moe Dee 3:58 10 Mary: Mary Run DMC 4:24 11 Childrens Story Slick Rick 4:04 12 Shake Your Thang Salt-N-Pepa 4:00 Total: 56:00

No, those weren't the coolest Hip Hop tracks available, but it was an easy way to get a whole bunch of the top 40 rap in an era before Napster or torrents.  I can't tell you how many times I played Slick Rick's Children's Story!

I've got Rap Traxx 1 through 5 and I don't care who knows it.
