Chris Read – The Diary (World’s Greatest Rap Megamix)


If you dig our History of Hip Hop series, but your ADD keeps you skipping between from the 2 hours of Hip Hop of 1993 to the 3 hours worth of material from 1994, then this is the mix for you. Chris Read put together an epic chronological mix of the rap’s landmark recordings by order of release from 1979-2007. 801 records in the blend! Just over an hour long.

From the reactions of some other DJs you can see this ain’t no joke!
