If you're looking for old school, Back Spin. I love that channel.

Backspin is the equivalent to the Rhyme, though Backspin tends to touch on earlier hip-hop, while The Rhyme sticks with more 90's rap. In any case, Backspin has done a great job exopanding its playlist lately, though improvements are still needed/wanted.

Very true- Backspin is a LOT of early-mid 80's stuff. Pretty cool though. Was driving out yesterday listening to Run-DMC's "You be illin'". Hadn't heard that in probably 20 years.

Actually Backspin doesnt even compare to The Rhyme anymore. The Rhyme is all mix shows anymore. Wheres the old skool rap at ? Backspin has always been better then The Rhyme and lately that gap has grown.

When I said "very true", I was talking about Back Spin play mostly 80s, just to clarify.

Well, SIRIUS just paid me $50 for a survey to help "improve" the channel. And coincidently one of the questions asked was if I wanted to them to add mix shows and play current songs from old school artists. Of course my response to both questions was HELL NO! Aside from wanting the playlist expanded just a little more, I love BackSpin.

Oh man.... you suck!!! Mixshows would make the channel so much more exciting!!!! Didn't you hear what the channel does during Labor Day? When the WonderTwinz mix? It's amazing!!!

I want 50 bucks to do this survey!!

Of all the R&B & Rap music stations, Backspin is better that the stations with the new music. I love the station alot.

They got the classics brought to you by Curtis Blow & Dana Dana who are classic so they remember the shit I wanna hear.
