Today’s Wednesday 3 UP celebrates the anniversary of 3 landmark hip hop albums from the last 30 years. There’s the global beat of M.I.A on Kala, which took hip hip & pushed it in an entirely new direction a decade ago. It’s also the 20th anniversary of the EP which introduced one of hip hop’s most divisive characters- Slim Shady from Eminem + 30 years ago Eric B & Rakim released their much loved anthem, Paid In Full.
Also check out the fuzzy pop groove of Alien Stadium who feature Steven Mason (ex Beta Band) and Martin Duffy (Primal Scream) on the first EP. Riton gives us a reworking of Paul McCartney’s Temporary Secretary & Aussie gems from Stella Donnelly & Jeremy Neale.
