by Various Artists
Released: Jan 2000

Headed by Bay Area impresario Beni B, ABB Records has played a crucial role in the development of independent hip-hop, breaking artists like Dilated Peoples and Little Brother. On this 16-track label retrospective, there's an abundance of hard-hitting beats and swift lyricism, courtesy of left coast underground faves such as Defari, Joey Chavez, Planet Asia and DJ Babu.
