If it doesn't sound like Biz Markie, Public Enemy, Heavy D & the Boyz, Kid & Play, Salt-n-Peppa, LL Cool J, Fresh Prince & DJ Jazzy Jeff, Schooly D, NWA, Beastie Boys, or Ultramagnetic MCs, it ain't Golden Age. MC Lyte kinda skirts Golden Age, but only barely.
    BTW, here's the playlist from that CD:
    * = songs I like
    + = songs I'd consider truly "old school"
    +1. Sugarhill Gang "Rapper's Delight"
    *+2. Run DMC "It's Tricky"
    +3. Salt-N-Pepa "Push It"
    *4. Digital Underground "The Humpty Dance" (this might be a late-old schooler)
    5. Coolio "Fantastic Voyage"
    6. House of Pain "Jump Around"
    *+7. Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock "It Takes Two"
    +8. The Fat Boys "The Fat Boys Are Back"
    9. MC Lyte "Ruffneck"
    +10. Kurtis Blow "The Breaks"
    11. L'Trimm "Cars With the Boom"
    +12. Grandmaster Flash "The Message"
    *13. Rebirth of Soul" Digable Planets
    *14. De la Soul "Me, Myself and I"
    15. Queen Latifah "Ladies First"
    16. Kid N' Play "Rollin' With Kid N' Play"
    17. Naughty By Nature "Hip Hop Hooray"

    Was suprised at the lack of Beastie Boys, Kool Moe Dee, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, etc. but there can be future CDs, I guess.
