I see you wanted to be more original, those are great ones man, but it seems to be more something like:

Sugarhill gang - Rapper's delight (1979)
Grandmaster Flash - The Message (1982)
Afrika bambaataa - Planet rock (1982)
Run DMC - Sucker MCs (1983)
Geto Boys - My mind playing tricks on me (1991)
Dr Dre ft. Snoop - Nothing but a G Thang (1992)
Public Enemy - Fight the Power (1990)
Biggie - Juicy (1994)
N.W.A - Straight Outta Compton (1988)
Rakim ft. Eric B - Paid in Full (1987)


My 10 favorites are something like (80s-90s):

1. Pete Rock & CL Smooth - They Reminisce Over You
2. Mobb Deep - Shook Ones
3. Busta Rhymes - Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See
4. Wu Tang Clan - CREAM
5. Run-DMC - Peter Piper
6. Warren G ft. Nate Dogg - Regulate
7. Method Man feat. Mary J. Blige - You're All I Need
8. Naughty By Nature - OPP
9. Biggie - Hypnotize
10. Tupac - Dear Mama

Those are almost my all-time favorites aswell :)

90s man... 90s.... then it just went down hill.... you can occasionally find some good stuff out there today but...

Old-School hip hop at this stage is more closer to something like 1979-1990, arguably even later (i certainly consider 90s old school, unfortunately, at least early 90s).... most of the evolution happened during that time.....

Anyways, i was judging by OP's picks, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince: Summertime is from 1991 for example....

"Old skool" hip hop is dat pre 90s stuff. Stuff like 'Rappers Delight' which tbh i don't really care all that much for.

"Classic rap" IMO is dat 90's stuff. its the equivalent of "Classic Rock" in the 60s and 70s. Dats dat truuf.

That's not old school hip-hop, that's the first hip-hop. That late 80's-early 90s is old school hip-hop. The Golden Era.

Do you think of wu tang as old school? I personally dont. I consider them 'classic rap' along with tupac, nas, biggie, g rap, nwa, busta rhymes, mobb deep, redman, geto boys etc etc

I think of sugarhill gang, grandmaster flash, will smith, afrika bambata, and all that stuff as old skool.

Even if theres some overlap in the timelines, to me its the style that determines the category, rather than what year it was

Spice 1 is STILL going at it to this day with the same gangsta rap he started with

1991 - Spice 1 - In My Neighborhood - age 20

1992 - Spice 1 - 187 Proof - age 21

2013 - Spice 1 - Ghetto Star - age 42

His newer stuff isn't even close to as good as his older classics but there are a few couple things here and there that are decent

2010 - SPICE 1-DON'T PUSH ME - This is good for something he has done lately

Spice -1 freestyling in his kitchen...he has lyrical skills


as far as being "real" goes, I think Spice is about as real as it gets...one of the most underrated rappers there is I think, his name should be listed along with the all the greats, it's just that Spice never had the slightest interest in making radio or club music, all he wanted to make (then and now) is gangsta shit
