Biz MarkieBiz Never Sleeps (special edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cold Chillin/Traffic, 1989. Used ... $4.99
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)".

Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded ... CD
B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
One of the best debuts in the history of hip hop – and one of the most important albums the genre ever produced! Criminal Minded is landmark for a number of reasons. Among the biggest is, of course, that it was recorded with the late great DJ Scott La Rock – and he was soon to fall prey to the very street violence that BDP documented with such raw brilliance, courtesy the lyricism and delivery of KRS-One. Importance aside, though, Criminal Minded is simply a great, timeless record that no true fan of gritty classic hip hop should be without. The track list alone is a full chapter in the hip hop book of legends – with tunes like "Poetry", "Elementary", "South Bronx", "Super-Hoe", "Bridge is Over", and the "P is Free" remix. Also includes "Criminal Minded", "Dope Beat", and "9mm Goes Bang". CD

Traffic/B-Boy, Late 80s. Used ... $2.99
A selection of late 80s South Bronx Teachings – classic Boogie Down Productions circa Criminal Minded! South Bronx Teachings focuses soundly on the class of '87 – so you get fistful of the Criminal Minded cuts and a few other blasts from KRS-One & Scott La Rock, nicely paced over 13 tracks. Includes "Poetry", "South Bronx", "9MM Goes Blang", "Word From Our Sponsor", "Elementary", "Advance", "D-Nice Rocks The House", "The Bridge Is Over", "Criminal Minded", and "P Is Free (rmx)". CD

Del Tha Funkee HomosapienI Wish My Brother George Was Here ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $18.99
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.

Del The Funky HomosapienNo Need For Alarm ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album

KMDMr Hood ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1994. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $21.99
Finally back on wax, and pressed up on double vinyl to boot! Pre-MF Doom/Metal Fingers, et al, classic from then-Zev Love X and DJ Sub Roc. The last chance before everybody had to be hardcore. Humor, knowledge and pure niceness, on par with the first De La album, though it never broke as huge. A whole other side of the man who'd become Metal Face, before the tragic loss of Sub Roc and subsequently strident and once lost but now widely available LP Black Bastards, this was one of the highwater marks in hip hop. Essential listening. Features "Peachfuzz", "Nitty Gritty" with Brand Nubian, "Humrush", "Figure Of Speech", "Trial 'N Error", "Soulflexin", "Gasface Refill" and the hilarious "Mr Hood At Piocalles Jewelry/Crackpot". LP, Vinyl record album

Kool G Rap & DJ PoloStreet Stories – The Best Of G Rap & Polo ... CD
Cold Chillin/Traffic, Late 80s/Early 90s. Used ... $4.99
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.

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.

Jazzy hip hop perfection from the mid 90s NYC scene – the legendary Visualz EP by Siah & Yeshua dapoED – and much more!

Benchmark early 80s NYC rap from Whodini!

New Big LLifestylez Of Da Poor & Dangerous ... LP
Columbia/Traffic, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

EdanEcho Party ... CD
Five Day Weekend, 2009. Used ... $5.99
The most tripped out funky sample and live instrumental material ever from Edan – old school rap and funk samples with Edan's own mad genius manipulations as well as a number of instruments he had at the ready! The Echo Party is a project that began life as mix set in which Edan had access to the vast back catalog of hip hop and funk reissues and newer original material under the far reaching umbrella of Traffic Entertainment, but Edan didn't stop there, kids. His wild imagination makes a dizzying psychedelic hip hop funk experience out of those materials, and he layers his own elements into it – from synthesizers, to guitar, oddball percussion flourishes and more – breaking up and reattaching particles, adding some echo, flipping the sounds to reverse play and back again, and crafting an all around wild ride that doesn't compromise the funk or the boom bap. One half hour long jam! CD
(Comes in a book like package, and the pages in the booklet provide some of the methods to the madness.)
