AllMusic Review

In addition to being the nation's number one music magazine and hip-hop's most credible source of information, The Source has made its first contribution to recorded music with THE SOURCE PRESENTS HIP HOP HITS, VOLUME 1, eighteen popular rap songs from 1997 compiled into one package. This compilation represents all facets of the hip-hop genre, and features a diverse line-up of artists from all across the country.

Leading off with The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize," probably one of the year's phattest jams, THE SOURCE PRESENTS... guarantees satisfaction. While Puff Daddy, Foxy Brown and Wyclef Jean provide the songs to make you want to dance, you are also schooled via the lyrical wizardry of Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, and Outkast. There is even a taste of hardcore with Mobb Deep, Master P and Scarface to go along with the party anthems from LL Cool J and Lil' Kim.
