Mashup of 80 Hip Hop Classics in 4 minutes

hiphopmashup1.jpg

It's hard to believe that hip hop is over 40 years old.

However, despite its age, fans love nothing more than to still act like young pups, while because of its age, there's now a huge canon of amazing songs to listen to. A combination of these two factors leads us neatly on to this fantastic new mashup video, entitled Meta Hip Hop, which has been created by Eclectic Method.

It's very simple: more than 80 classics, squeezed into 4 minutes over an insistent beat. Watch below to be reminded of a host of great tunes you'd forgotten about - you can download the track by visiting the Soundcloud page.

Once you hip hop, you just won't stop.
