New Beastie BoysIll Communication ... CD
Grand Royal, 1994. Used ... $1.99
What can we say? The Beasties continue with the live jazz/funk/garage (as in rock, not house) sound and keyboards by Money Mark. With the classic "Get It Together" featuring Q-Tip. And you can't go wrong with any LP that samples Ramelzee and K-Rob's "Beat Bop." Other tracks ... read more CD

We'll admit it's not as dope as the first LP but in our opinion, it deserved more attention than it got.

In the universe of Kool Keith projects, this one is maybe closest to the Sex Style LP lyrically – but the production is better than both Sex Style and Dr Octagon.

EminemSlim Shady LP ... CD
Aftermath/Interscope, 1999. Used ... $3.99
To be honest, we probably prefer the production on Eminem's earlier independent ep, but the vocals here are still up to par, with the perfect combination of ultra-violence and demented humor. Tracks include "Just Don't Give A F*ck", "Role Model", "I'm Shady", "Bad ... read more CD

EPMDBusiness As Usual (original pressing) ... CD
Def Jam, 1992. Used ... $4.99
While this is probably the weakest of the 4 albums EPMD cut before busting up, that shouldn't lead you to believe it's weak. This third LP finds Erick and Parrish still repping Long Island with their signature boom bap beats and slow flow rhyme style. Maybe you didn't get open open on this one ... read more CD

We have to give it up to Ice T. Aside from being one of the cornerstones of west coast and gangsta rap, he's probably the only rapper to successfully make the transition to acting (sorry Cube. . .). In fact, we'd rather watch him on TV than hear any of his later albums or singles. But we're ... read more CD
