AllMusic Review by

During the mid-to-late '80s, Hurby "Luv Bug" Azor was one of rap's most successful producers, crafting pop-oriented records for Kid 'n Play and Dana Dane. Seven of his discoveries are included here, chief among them Salt-n-Pepa; included are their "I'm Down" and a remix of their commercial breakthrough, "Push It." The remainder of the entries come from now-forgotten rappers like the Mau Mau Clan Overlords, Antoinette, and the Fabulous Two.
