AllMusic Review by

Presented by the Awesome 2, Special K and DJ Teddy Tedd, The History of Rap, Vol. 1 is a devastating collection of classic old-school tracks, compiling both the familiar ("The Message" by Grandmaster Flash, "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow, "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa) and a few of those more familiar to DJs ("That's the Joint" by the Funky 4+1, "Feel the Heartbeat" by the Treacherous Three).
