Soundbombing is a 1997 compilation album from independent Hip Hop label Rawkus Records. This was the first in a long line of acclaimed compilations from Rawkus, followed by two installments of the Lyricist Lounge series and two more Soundbombing albums. The compilation is hosted by DJ Evil Dee of Da Beatminerz and Black Moon, and features tracks from Rawkus roster members like Company Flow, Sir Menelik, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek and Mos Def, as well as appearances from Kool Keith, R.A. The Rugged Man, Mr. Man, and L-Fudge. Featuring mostly singles mixtape-style from the Rawkus label, later Soundbombing albums were not all singles. Soundbombing is possibly most well known for putting future Hip Hop stars Mos Def and Talib Kweli on the map.
