Robbie Ettelson:

As promised, here’s the first part of the Eighties Edition. This period is a little trickier, as for much of it rap was still a ‘singles’ medium, so many artists never even got to release albums at all, which opens the playing field pretty wide. To keep it manageable, I’ve stuck to crews and soloists that put out at least one LP during their career and excluded b-sides that were tacked onto the CD versions of albums or second pressings (such as Jungle BrothersThe Promo). I almost feel like doing a compilation of Jive Records Most Disgraceful UK Remixes’ just to shame them, but nobody in their right mind would actually listen to that.

Check out the tracklist after the jump.
