Oxygen's Strong Island Anthems

If you didn't spot this article at the end of last year over at RYAN PROCTOR's excellent OLD TO THE NEW website then I'm here to steer you in the right direction. When it comes to the boroughs of New York City, the BRONX, BROOKLYN, MANHATTAN and QUEENS always get a (well deserved) mention on hip hop records but when it came down to hardcore hip hop in the 1980s the fact of the matter is that STRONG ISLAND was absolutely killing it! Take a peep at OLD TO THE NEW where my good friend and Long Island resident OXYGEN (from SPOX PHD and formerly of SPUTNIK BROWN) listed ten of his favourite LONG ISLAND anthems from the last 30 years and dropped a little knowledge on each track. Check out some of these dope STRONG ISLAND records and also brush up on your L.I. knowledge at the same time. Check 'em out HERE.
