AlkaholiksESP (Everyday Street Poets) Demos EP ... LP
Dope Folks, 1991. New Copy ... $22.99
A raw, funky EP of early Alkaholiks – pre-Loud/RCA era material produced by E Swift – and it's a vital slice of dawn of the 90s LA hip hop! The title ESP refers to the the trio's early moniker, Everyday Street Poets, and it's timeless stuff with a rawer vibe than the major label recordings to follow – but it's not raw as in "unfinished" sounding, it's gritty, but wholy worthy of their legacy and a real gem that any fan of timeless, golden age west coast hip hop outta love. Includes "We Gets Funky", "Mr. Troublemaker", "Ni**az Ain't Laughing No More", "Wadadang", "L.A. Law" and "Welcome To The Grooveyard". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition!)

Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... CD
Mercury, 1991. New Copy ... $4.99 5.98
A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more.

De La SoulDe La Soul Is Dead ... CD
Tommy Boy, 1991. Used ... $6.99
The epic second De La Soul album – a slightly deeper record than the upbeat 3 Feet High And Rising, but to us it's just as irrefutably classic – and among the best hip hop full lengths ever! The trio is still working with Prince Paul, so despite the cover image and declaration of the end of the Daisy age, there's no shortage of humor and bouncing good time hip hop – if a turn tougher. To put it simply, this is one of the many reasons we look a the early 90s as the salad days of hip hop. With "Oodles Of O's", Talkin' Bout Hey Love", "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays", "Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa", "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)", "Keepin' The Faith", "Bitties In The BK Lounge", "Pass The Plugs" and, as was the style at the time, loads of funny skits.

DJ VadimCombustible (LP, inst)/Harp Song/Dimelo (LP, inst, Accoustic mix) ... 12-inch
Ninja Tune, 2002. Sealed (pic cover)... $1.99
2 new cuts of hard hitting hip hop from Russia's premier producer. Yeah, we know, he's really from London, and the tracks here have less of the abstract approach he's taken in the past, more of the straight ahead sound on his last LP. Gift Of Gab from Blackalicious takes a turn on the mic on the a-side and Mucho Mu drops some verses en Espanol on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Classic electro instrumentals – originally recorded in 1982, and released here as part of Jive's Rhythm Tracks series. Larry Linn wrote all cuts, and production was handled by the Willesden Dodgers. A lot nicer than some of the other volumes – especially if you dig breakdance grooves! LP, Vinyl record album

CommonNobody's Smiling (deluxe edition) ... LP
Universal, 2014. New Copy 2LP ... Mid-August, 2014
Common's strongest record in years – working once again with producer No ID – and they're repping their hometown of Chicago as profoundly and soulfully as ever! Everything is on point here. Common rhymes with a direct, truthful knowledge of everyday struggles – yeah, he's been a star for years, with a respectable acting career on top, but he damn sure hasn't forgotten where he's from – and there's no greater demonstration of that truth than his continuing later career reunion with No ID. We definitely dug their preceding Dreamer/Believer record, but this one hits even deeper. It shows progressive, future-ready beatcraft on one hand, and dusty soul samples and gospel choruses on the other. Both modes are solid. Tracks include "The Neighborhood", "No Fear", "Diamonds", "Hustle Harder", "Real", "Kingdom", "Blak Majik", "Nobody's Smiling", "Rewind That" and more. 3 bonus tracks on the deluxe edition: "Out Of Bounds", "7 Deadly Sins" and "Young Hearts Run Free". LP, Vinyl record album
