Really good shyt. They should do a 4 hour documentary for each decade about hip-hop. Broken up in segments of extensive research. From every aspect of underground, untold stories, beefs, collabs, studio time moments, concerts, sublinimials and tributes, inspired songs, the making of songs from a engineers prospective. To the mainstream, industry politics, why some artists got shelved or black balled, ghost writers, ghost producers etc.
Proof again that he who controls the sound wins the game.
When Q-Tip/Tribe came out, people weren't losing their minds in terms of 'lyrically', 'concepts' or all that other shyt that a small fraction of hip hop fans pretend matters. They just had an incredible sound, and that's what made people lose their minds.
Any legendary hip hop act came first with a legendary sound, and that's what really matters. THEN they might have had crazy rhymes to match.
