ICYMI: Check out our previous entries/playlists from the 1990s:
I had almost forgotten how crazy a year 1996 actually was for hip-hop. So many tracks kept coming to mind when creating this one, and personally, this playlist may be my favourite thus far. A ton of head nodders and a whole bunch of incredible music came out this year. 1996 also holds the distinction as being the last year prior to the grip of the “shiny-suit” era of rap.
Surprisingly, Spotify (@Spotify) managed to come through with a bunch of stuff I wouldn’t have expected them to have the rights to so I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out – should be a good summer listen to reminisce over for the hip-hop heads anyway! Continue reading

Here at the PRISM, we are long-time supporters of the legendary Juggaknots (@juggaknots) crew.
Perhaps, you even caught our siblings post back in July where we featured the Juggs for the #GuelphMusicClub.
Either way, we regard Breeze Brewin as arguably the most under-appreciated MC in the game over the past two decades.
Fans who have been up on the group since their Fondle ‘Em days know that their musical output can be a bit sparse, to put it mildly.
Thankfully, there have been signs that the family unit is ready to break up their latest period of inactivity.
Breeze has taken the lead by dropping a new track and accompanying video.
Check out “Road Rage” below. It’s a banger.
P.S. When Kendrick (@kendricklamar) dropped his “Control” verse, in typical rap fashion, everyone jumped on the Big Sean (@BigSean) beat and released their own versions.
The ONLY “response” worth hearing came from Breeze.
Dope and a completely original take.
Peep it if you missed it.
