    Rakim - I Aint No Joke

    EPMD - You Gots to Chill

    KRS-ONE - The Bridge is Over

    Sugarhill Gang - Rappers Delight

    Warren G - Regulators

    UGK - Front Back and Side to Side (their 1st smash single)

    Crucial Conflict - Hay

    this kinda depends on what you consider old school

    for the genre u described i'd go for some NWA and dl The Chronic, 2pac albums, Ready to Die and Doggystyle.

    If you want some truly old school 70's rapper's delight is by the sugarhill gang.

    If you want 80's I'd go with some Eric B. & Rakim, Gangstarr's first stuff, De La Soul's first album, Run-DMC, BDP, Afrika Bambaataa, Slick Rick, Grandmaster Flash, LL Cool J, Beastie Boys and Marley Marl.

    As for my favorite era..early 90's

    I'd say listen to some Wu-Tang Clan, Big L, A Tribe Called Quest, Brand Nubian, Boot Camp Click, Common, Das Efx, Pete Rock, Jeru, Naughty By Nature, etc.

    From there I would just start listenin to people they did collabs with...and let it snowball.

    Still D.R.E- Dr Dre ft Snoop Doggy Dogg

    Dre Day- Dr. Dre ft Snoop Doggy Dogg

    Go To Church- Ice Cube ft Lil Jon, Snoop Dogg

    I would even go back as far as Whodini "The Freaks come out at Night" and Kool Moe Dee (before "the Wild Wild West"...although that is great stuff).
