Guess how many artists you can pick out in this stunning 150 track medley video that combines not just tons of hip hop beats & verses together but actually aligns them to the original music videos. The mindblowing music video/medley features the likes of The Notorious B.I.G, Eric B & Rakim to Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper and more!

The video, done by The Hood Internet is a really fun way to learn about the history of Hip Hop and covers the basis of most hip-hop essentials across the decades (Death Grips, Noname, Milo where you at??). The 4 minute audio-visual features the Sugarhill Gang, Eric B & Rakim, The Notorious B.I.G, Biz Markie, Dr Dre & Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and a multitude of other artists.

It’s described in the video info description as “over a 150 songs from more than 100 artists representing 40 years of hip hop all crammed into 4 minutes. Not a chronological history of hip hop, but rappers from different eras finishing each other’s rhymes over intersecting beats, all woven together to make one song.”
