The Best of Kurtis Blow - 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection

by: Kurtis Blow

Some 20th Century Masters collections simply were not meant to be made. While there are some that most definitely deserve recognition and due diligence, there are others that are simply one-hit wonders padded with filler material. However, this is fortunately not one of those times, as Kurtis Blow's brilliant but short career is accurately surveyed in this compact volume. Kicking off with the classic anthem "The Breaks" and ending with "If I Ruled the World," every major hit Blow put out is on here; it is probably one of the most comprehensive collections of his work in print. It's an amazing release that pays proper tribute to the boy from Harlem who became one of hip-hop's first superstars. ~ Rob Theakston
