"After catching wreck on dozens of 45-only (aka donuts) Hip-Hop sets worldwide, Peanut Butter Wolf has gotten together with the good folks at Five Day Weekend to put together this insane collection of 10 Rap 45’s packaged in a beautiful heavy-weight collector’s tin. The 20 classic Hip Hop cuts, personally hand picked by PBW and taken from such iconic labels as Enjoy, Sleeping Bag, Fresh, Cold Chillin’, Strong City and many more are guaranteed to not only put a smile on the face of any avid Old School Hip Hop fan, but also provide a great introduction to the golden era for any Rap fans of the new millennium.
“This project is such a great honor for me to be involved with.This is one of the crowning moments of my music career, seriously. As a kid growing up in San Jose, CA when all this stuff was coming out, I was hooked and half a lifetime later I still am. I can only imagine what these songs sound like to a teenager today hearing them for the first time, just as they probably wonder what it was like for someone like me to have heard them for the first time back when it was all happening. I've also always wondered what it was like to grow up in one of the five boroughs in Hip Hop's infancy in the 80s. These songs were the closest I got to knowing.”

This collector's tin consists of 10 x 7" vinyl records and all tracks are on 45 in the US for the first time! CD and megamix digital download also available.
