There's bound to be differing opinions on this, but when do we feel like the golden era ended? Sometime around Puff Daddy's rise or Biggie's Death? Or maybe earlier, sometime around the peak of really over the top gangsta rap? Or maybe when that U-God dropped.

I’ve seen it all before. I've inhaled hashish. I've had an afro haircut.

Chris De Burgh, Mike Oldfield, Jean-Michel Jarre and The Eagles could eat you lot for breakfast.

The Golden Era, which to me was 1988-1996, was such a special time. I turned 14 in '88 and turned 22 in '96. Anyways, for me I gotta say 1988 or 1994. But you could make an argument for just about any of those years. I'd imagine only up to a certain age could people truly appreciate 1988-1990/91/92. '92/93 is pretty much when the sound really changed, to me at least. What's crazy is as I lived through those times and was as big of a HipHop head then as I am now, nothin seemed "special" then... it was just what it was. But looking back it's like maaan, I'm so fortunate to have lived through all of those years because it was so fuckin special...

Peace to the 90's and in general the "Golden Era". Long live REAL HipHop Music & Culture.

The Golden Era, which to me was 1986-1991 was a special time. I turned 38 in
'86. I bought all the records. I drove a box shaped limousine. A black one, and also a white one. I had a bitch. Just one. She was my wifey, but I referred to her as my bitch. We would always go to Limelight and The Tunnel in New York City. I would wear an all neon green spandex suit with my dick and balls out. I was known as "Green Nick".
My bitch, rocked neon pink spandex but with skirts and big ass tube top turtle neck sweaters. I didn't let her tits hang out. Only my dick. People were taken aback at first. Everyone knew me in the clubs. Sometimes I hear the whispers "Where is Green Nick?" Well I'm right here, on a rap message board. Wow!

I love all eras.

In particular 97-2001ish because I look at it as 1994 with a huge progression in terms of lyrics and beats.

All eras have gems though.

Gems and DJ Wicked Gucci Gang Blendz.

To me... golden era is 1993-1996. Best 4 years in hiphop.

Old School anything before 1993

^I think the Chronic belongs in the Golden Era, '92. A change even from the NWA sound.

i think it really depends on how long have you been listening to hip hop

criminal minded by bdp is not my cup of tea but it belongs to the golden era no question


follow the leader is waaay better than some early 90s lps, same case with it´s a big daddy thing or no one can do it better or amerikkka's most wanted


shit, NWA's n*ggas for life is one the best produced album ever


the golden era actually started around 86 or 87

i say 88-95 cause 88 was the first year a lot of albums started dropping and a also a lot of super dope ground breaking ones.and 88 was the year we really saw (heard) production jump ahead (evolve) with albums like straight outta compton, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back,Critical Beatdown,Strictly Business.

88-95 or 96 is the widely accepted period as far as i've always seen and heard.

years before 88 dont compare as far as number of releases, album quality or production dopeness so i dont count 86 and 87 like some do.

'94-'96 is the greatest three year stretch in hip hop history. Will never, ever be topped.

Most, not all but most of those pre-'94 albums sound dated. A ton of albums in that '94-'96 span sound just as fresh today.

^haha- you always say that- you got your go to. we had this convo about 10 times by now man. most of the 89-93 albums i love dont sound dated at all. for example:compare the 2 3rd bass albums to many of the 95,96 albums and 3rd bass was more sophisticated with the production and had a better mix. not that sounding dated is always a bad thing.

for each there own. 94-96 is amazing.

Yo felipe naturally there's exceptions but '94 for me is when the sound of the genre sounded more updated and not as old school. Chronic, Doggystyle, 36 Chambers, etc are some of the exceptions to my rule.
