Eazy's first and best LP, from back when he was trying to kid everyone that he was still a teenager.

NasIllmatic (2CD 10th Anniversary Edition) ... CD
Columbia, 1994. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99
Nas hasn't put out a completely successful full length since this all time classic from 92/93/94 – and if his legacy is just a bit tarnished by the hit-and-miss quality of his subsequent albums, and his all too public slaying at the hands of Jay-Z, nothing can take away the impact of this ... read more CD

NasStillmatic ... CD
Columbia, 2002. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Nas's sorta comeback record from '02 – and a strong one! Stillmatic was a welcome change of pace after some not so great work in the later 90 – with the return-to-form rally cry "One Mic" setting the pace – and the best cuts on this set still sound great! 15 tracks ... read more CD

Classic east coast duo hip hop from Greg Nice & Smooth Bee – one of the last great things to come out on the Fresh label! The self-titled Nice & Smooth album has some good-natured jams, some straight-faced, semi serious stuff, and even the odd hip hop ballad (what ever happened to ... read more CD

Ozone, 2002. Used ... $4.99
We've always felt the Opus were one of Chicago's under appreciated hip hop talents, creating dark, moody beats for the local juggernaut Rubberoom before their demise.
