New Big LLifestylez Of Da Poor & Dangerous ... LP
Columbia/Traffic, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... $18.99 19.98
Now a classic, and pretty tough to get a hold of on vinyl. Beats by Buckwild, Showbiz and Lord Finesse, rhymes by Harlem's finest. Big L didn't leave behind much recorded work, but if this LP has to stand as his legacy, it's a mighty fine statement. Alongside some of the latter day QB hip hop, probably the pinnacle of streetlife lyrics from the east coast. 12 tracks in all: "Put It On", "MVP", "No Endz, No Skinz", "8 Iz Enuff", "All Black", "Danger Zone", "Street Struck", "Da Graveyard", "Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous", "I Don't Understand It, "Fed Up Wit The Bullsh#t", and "Let 'Em Have It L".

Del The Funky HomosapienNo Need For Alarm ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy .... $14.99
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initally underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! Whereas I Wish My Brother George Was Here was sort of the loopy, semi-comical cousin to the tonally heavier G-Funk sound, No Need For Alarm has a tighter, somewhat little harder hitting sound – more akin to the jazzy Hiero beats you've come to know and love! There are days when we feel like this is our favorite Del LP. Includes "Catch A Bad One", "Wack MCs", "No Need For Alarm", "Boo Boo Heads", "Worldwide", "No More Worries", "Wrong Place", "In & Out" and "Miles To Go". CD

Kool G Rap & DJ PoloStreet Stories – The Best Of G Rap & Polo ... CD
Cold Chillin/Traffic, Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy .... $9.99 16.98
Prime, hard hitting Kool G Rap & DJ Polo – a killer collection of their pioneering, classic cuts from the Cold Chillin' era! The MC & DJ duo was plenty popular in this period – which essentially covers '89-'92 – but they're one of those combos whose influences on east coast rap to come arguably stretches even farther and wider than their own recorded legacy. Tough street tales, vital golden age DJ skills and collaborations with fellow legends Marley Marl, Large Professor, Eric B, Biz Markie and Big Daddy Kane. 5 tracks in all: "Streets of New York", "Truly Yours", "Wanted Dead Or Alive", "Poison", "Money In The Bank" with Large Professor, Freddie Foxxx & Ant Live, "Butcher Shop", "Bad To The Bone", "Road To The Riches", "It's A Demo", "I'm Fly (Original 12" Version)", "Riker's Island (Original 12" Version)", "Rhyme Time (Original 12" Version)" and more.

Leaders Of The New SchoolFuture Without A Past ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... $22.99
The amazing debut of those most hyperactive of the Native Tongues, the short-lived, ultra fresh Leaders Of The New School! Busta & Co. splintered apart after just two albums, but this will always be a shiny trophy in the mantle with the all time freshest East Coast hip hop. It sounds great to this day, particularly those Eric "Vietnam" Sadler cuts. Tracks include "Case Of The P.T.A.", "Too Much On My Mind", "What's The Pinocchio Theory?", "Sobb Story", "Sound Of The Zeekers @#^**?!", "Feminine Fatt", "Transformers", "Show Me A Hero", "Trains, Planes & Automobiles", "Teachers, Don't Teach Us Nonsense!", "My Ding-A-Ling", and "Where Do We Go From Here?".

Lord FinesseReturn Of The Funky Man (2LP pressing) ... LP
Giant/Traffic, 1992. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue).... $22.99
We know we spend a lot of space on these pages propping up early 90s hip hop, but you have to admit it was the salad days of the east coast. Finesse's second LP's no exception, with tight lyrics and beats – keeping it real before it became a cliché – a DITC classic that we never grow tired of, and has been far to hard to get a hold of on vinyl for year! Timeless production that lives up to the title by Showbiz, Diamond D and Finesse. Tracks include "Party Over Here", "Yes You May", "Return Of The Funky Man", "Fat For The 90s", "Stop Sweating The Next Man", "That's How Smooth I Am", "Praise The Lord", "I Like My Girls With A Boom", "Hey Look At Shorty", "Isn't He Something" and "Funky On The Fast Tip".

WhodiniWhodini (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Jive/Arista/Traffic, 1983. New Copy .... $5.99 16.98
Benchmark early 80s NYC rap from Whodini! Everyone knows the name Whodini and we have some fun old school rap video show memories, but the group doesn't really get its props in the way others of their generation enjoy. It's never too late! This is fresh album worth copping. Includes "The Haunted House Of Rock" – the extended version, the vocoder version and "Haunted" mix – plus "Magic's Wand" (plus extended mix) "Nasty Lady", "Underground", "Rap Machine" and "It's All In Mr Magic's Wand". A classic! CD
(Comes in a great LP style sleeve!)

BeatnutsStreet Level (2LP remastered edition with bonus track) ... LP
Relativity/Traffic, 1994. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
The first full length Beatnuts LP – remastered and reissued as a double LP for the first time ever – raw NYC hip hop at it’s early-to-mid 90s finest! Raw, funky and jazzy beatcraft that's pretty much a blueprint for some of our east coast hip hop of the era, with sharp, on point rhymes. A pure classic! Titles "Props Over Here", "Psycho Dwarf", "Hellraiser", "Ya Don't Stop", "Are You Ready" featuring Grand Puba, "Hit Me With That", "2-3 Break" and more. This newly remastered set lays it out nicely on double vinyl, and includes the bonus "Yeah You Get Props – Rough Mix", from the 94's great Props Over Here 12". LP, Vinyl record album

Profile/Traffic, 1997. Used 2LP (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The late 90s classic from Sonny Cheeba & Geechi Suede – the benchmark Uptown Saturday Night from Camp Lo! Was this our favorite Hip Hop LP of '97? It sure seems like it now, in retrospect, and we keep going back to the great singles and stellar album tracks such as "Luchin AKA This Is It", "Coolie High" and "Black Nostaljack AKA Come On". Other cuts include also includes "Rockin It AKA Spanish Harlem", "Sparkle", "Swing", "B-Side To Hollywood" featuring Trugoy of De La Soul and "Negro League". LP, Vinyl record album

New Pete Rock & CL SmoothAll Souled Out EP (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first EP by Pete Rock & CL Smooth – and one of the greatest debut EPs in hip hop history – fleshed out here with bonus mixes and instrumentals! The original EP material is as stunning as ever, really showing the Pete & CL were in near peak form right outta gate – setting up the signature Pete Rock's signature jazz and soul sample mastery, perfectly suited to CL's brilliant, though laidback MC skills. An essential little set, and the perfect set up for the epic first LP to come! EP tracks include "Good Life" (plus the Group Home remix), "Mecca & The Soul Brother", "Go With The flow", "The Creator" and "All Souled Out". This nice 2014 version on Traffic includes the bonus versions "The Creator (Slide To Slide Mix)", "The Creator (Surfboard Mix)" and instrumental version, plus "Mecca & The Soul Brother (Wig Out Mix)" and instrumental.

New Brand NubianOne For All ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1990. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Pure greatness from Brand Nubian at their early best! The Nubes' have made a handful of solid-to-great albums, but none could top this essential debut. Grand Puba, Sadat X and Lord Jamar are on point with the politicized rhymes over classic early 90s jazzed up, funky beats, built from now well known breaks – and truly raising the bar for classic east coast production. With the classics "All For One", "Slow Down", "Drop The Bomb", "Concerto In X Minor", and 2 mixes of "Wake Up" (Stimulated Dummies mix and the penultimate reprise), plus "Who Can Get Busy Like This Man. . .", "Ragtime", "To The Right", "Dance To My Ministry", "Step To The Rear", "Try To Do Me", "Grand Puba, Positive & LG" and "Dedication".

New Del Tha Funkee HomosapienI Wish My Brother George Was Here ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue).... Out Of Stock
The loopy West Coast classic! Heavily steeped in the P-Funk party vibe, Del's first LP is still a hip hop holy grail. Ice Cube's production is a nice snapshot of west coast hip hop circa '89, and Del's style is inimitable. Standouts Mistadobolina" and "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo" are unimpeachable leftfield classics – but the whole record's great! Other titles include "What Is A Booty", "The Wacky World Of Rapid Transit", "P*ssin On Your Steps", "Money For Sex", "Dr. Bombay", "Sunny Meadowz", "Sleepin On My Couch", "Hoodz Come In Dozens", "Same Ol Thing", "Ya Lil' Crumbsnatchers", and more.

New Biz MarkieBiz Never Sleeps (special edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cold Chillin/Traffic, 1989. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Biz's second LP from 1989 – what can we tell you about the Biz that you don't already know? As far as we're concerned there are a lot of MCs that could still learn a lesson or two from the Biz, and producers too! Good time mid school hip hop, with nice sample based production and a great sense of humor, that makes us nostalgic for the late 80s early 90s glory days. 13 tracks in all, with the cuts "Spring Again", "Just A Friend", "A Thing Named Kim", "The Dragon", "Things Get A Little Easier", "I Hear Music", "Biz In Harmony", "Check It Out" and more. This 2012 special edition includes 5 bonus 12" versions: "Just A Friend (12" Version)", "Just A Friend (Instrumental)", "Spring Again (Club Mix)", "Spring Again (12" Remix)" and "Spring Again (Dub)". CD
(This special edition features a slightly different shot of Science Lab Biz than the original! Includes 5 bonus tracks.)

The guest list is almost too long to get into, but Money Mark, Prince Paul, PB Wolf and Mr. Lif are all here, along with many others.

Delicious Vinyl, 1995. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $16.99
Delicious Vinyl gone G Funk! Masta Ace's second solo helmed album may not be the most topically innovative thing you'll find on the lyrical side, but the low ridin' gangsta thing rarely ever sounded sweeter than it does on these sides! This is another in the fine line of Delicious Vinyl reissues of the last few years, shining a reverant light on some worthy releases that tend to get lost in the shuffle of high profile 90s hip hop classics. With "The INC Ride", 'Eastbound", "Sittin' On Chrome", "People In My Hood", 'Ain't No Game", "Born To Roll" and "The Phat Kat Ride". LP, Vinyl record album
(Traffic reissue on grey vinyl.)
