Disc 4 - Street

"Street" refers to various early rap and hip-hop, and the term points both to the fact that many early rap-singles were released in so-called "street versions" as well as hinting to the music's urban roots. Most of these tracks were single-only, 'though by 1984 we were beginning to see some solid albums as well, notably Run-D.M.C.'s debut.
