PE broke the mold for sure. it's sort of forgotten how abrasive noise was such a big part of the hip hop sound (well, on the east coast at least). once G-Funk and De La got in the mix, everything opened up. not to mention the Dust Bros but they're white boys so we'll pretend that didn't happen (even though, as Chuck D said, everybody knew Paul's Boutique had the best beats at the time).
