Commonwealth, 1998. Near Mint- .... $13.99
Some of the better Boston area MC's from the late 90s backpacker era. With mid-tempo underground production, though the vocals have a little more energy and pacing than the standard underground singles, which is fine by us. "Time in this Career" uses an update of that double-time rhyming style (no, not the tounge-twista style!) that MC's used to use in the early 90's. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Early 90s anti-gang rap from a Chicago artist who really didn't do much else. There was a small radio groundswell behind this track when it was out, that has kind of an imitation G-funk feel to it. The "Stepper's mix" is just an extended instrumental. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Faithful reissue of the classic cut and paste single that sparked off an entire sub genre of hip hop in the early 80s! Double Dee & Steinski mix together dozens of samples of everything from JFK speeches and cartoon bits to movie dialog and even Mae West over a bed of classic break beats and early hip hop tracks. The Payoff mix is based on Whiz Kid's "Play That Beat", Lesson Two uses lots of James Brown, Lesson Three has everything else. 12-inch, Vinyl record

An offshoot of the 4AD rock scene from the UK, this number sampled Rakim from "Paid In Full" to great effect – and it made quite a bit of sense that the track was issued on 4th & Broadway in the US (probably also a legal move, so that the label wouldn't sue 4AD for copping a sample from one of their artists!

Produced by Duke Bootee with scratches by DJ Finesse, the Point Blank MC's use the heavy beat production style of the early Profile singles, similar to Coast to Coast's "Word of Mouth" and the rock-the-party loud vocal style of '83-85 hip hop. It might sound dated to some, but to us it's still a great example of hip hop vocals between the classic old school rhyme style and the post-Run-DMC MC's. Plus the sticker on the cover has the MCs in some early 80's hip hop flix. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Baby BlakNo Coast Allstars (radio, inst, BBK's alternate verse)/Economix (radio, album, inst) ... 12-inch
Rapster (UK), 2003. Very Good+ .... $1.99
Another great true hip hop single from Rapster by Baby Blak, the Philly-bred cat who's worked with Dilated Peoples, Joey Chavez and scores of others. On "No Coast All Stars" Baby Blak is joined by Planet Asia and Obie Trice over a crisp beat and funky synth line – but it's all about the verbal flow on this cut, and the crew (particularly PA's on the main and BB's alternate vocal track) are at the top of their game. "Economix" is built around another spacey synth, this one overdubbed for maximum effect – with some nicely placed scratches and a Guru-like vocal delivery. The most promising cuts yet from Baby Blak! 12-inch, Vinyl record

We don't remember all the details, but right after this one came out a whole bunch of groups, including Snap, used the exact same beat and even copied the lyrics, legal battles followed, etc. In any case, we'll stick with Chill Rob's version. 12-inch, Vinyl record

DiverseExplosive (Caural rmx, orig)/Ain't Right (DJ Mitsu the beats rmx & rmx inst, orig)/RJ's Cuts ... 12-inch
Chocolate Industries, 2003. Very Good (pic cover).... $6.99
"Explosive" is right! The A-side here is a furiously cut and scratched pounder, courtesy of RJD2, with a great guest vocal spot by Lyrics Born. We're really starting to warm up to RJD2 in a big way around here; some of the ubiquitous DJ's work of the past couple of years kind of rubbed us as just a little too hip and cold, but more recent work (particularly on the Soul Position and Diverse full lengths) is steeped in some of the most seriously catchy and skillful turntable wizardry around. If anyone were to ask for our top 5 hip hop singles of '03, be they indie, major or galactic, "Explosive" would certainly be on there. Madlib touches the flip side "Ain't Right" with his trademark jazzy-mellow sound washes, and a fast, post-drum & bass beat clip. Pure greatness, on both sides! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A mad bit of drum heavy, funky excellence from Beat Junkies founder J Rocc – a killer mix crafted from the vintage private press recordings anthologized in the Enjoy The Experience compilation and book from Sinecure Books! Enjoy The Experience is an incredibly diverse set, though funky jazz, jazzy funk and funk rock were a big part of the package. J Rocc hones in on that, but truly puts his distinctive turnablist hip hop stamp – with driving funky beats that don't let up. This is a quinessential example of a great DJ crafting brilliantly unique material from found sounds! 3 long tracks on 2 sides: "ETE Part 4 (Instrumental)", "ETE Part 1" and "ETE: The Beat Edition". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Despite the title "Planet Rock" is not a new version of the Bambattaa/Soul Sonic Force track. Instead it features the bassline from another old school track (Funky 4 +1?) , plus guest vocals from L-Fudge. "Planet Rock" and "Punchline" use that underground style where the vocals float above the beat – not really on-beat or off-beat – maybe like Co. Flow or something on Fondle Em. And Logistics 101 add the with galloping beats style to match. 12-inch, Vinyl record

The third collaborative EP from adventurous production legend Madlib and MC Freddie Gibbs! As cool is Madlib's more envelope-pushing, unpredictable and cosmos expanding productions are, it's always fantastic to hear him produce for no nonsense rhymers. "Deeper" has a chilling bit of soul strings soaring over a spare, moody beat that's a perfect foil for Freddie's vocals. "Harold's" is another gritty soul steeped track with tough rhymes. Includes vocal and instrumental versions of "Deeper" and "Harold's" – plus the bonus beats "Ups & Downs" and "The Long Walk Home". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Pete & CL return and it's like they've never left! "Shine On Me", like the recent Gangstarr singles, teleports us right back to the halcyon days of strong soul samples, proud rhymes, and beats that bump. "Climax" is just as tough – a bit slower on the beat, and more methodical on the rhyme. "We're not old school yet, stop talking funny." 12-inch, Vinyl record

Pharoahe MonchAgent Orange (single version) (clean, inst, dirty) ... 12-inch
Rawkus, 2003. Near Mint- .... $7.99
The Pharoahe returns with "Agent Orange", his weapon in the war against wack hip hop, and a verbal brick tossed at the window of the Oval Office. The politics don't get in the way of the beat, though – the SA-RA production falls just over the gritty-right of HOT – with a deep electro pulsing squeel building up to the chorus. The world of hip hop needs the manic, freaked-out likes of Pharoahe Monch right now, and it's great to have him back on the radar! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a stickered sleeve.)

New Point Blank MC'sWhat The Party Needs (voc, radio edit, inst, latin rascal bonus beats) ... 12-inch
BAB, 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover).... $9.99
Point Blank MC's use the heavy beat production style of the early Profile singles similar to Coast to Coast's "Word of Mouth" and the rock-the-party loud vocal style of '83-85 hip hop. It might sound dated to some, but to us it's still a great example of hip hop vocals between the classic old school rhyme style and the post-Run-DMC MC's. Plus, 3 of the 4 MCs are wearing some fly coonskin hats on the pic cover! Who out there remembers that craze from the mid 80s? 12-inch, Vinyl record

Arthur RussellLet's Go Swimming EP – Let's Go Swimming (Gulf Stream Dub, Puppy Surf Dub, Coastal Dub)/Make 1, 2 (Gem Spa Dub) ... 12-inch
Audika, Mid 80s. New Copy (pic cover).... $12.99
An avant dancefloor work of genius by Arthur Russell – the frantically beat-heavy, sunny and psychedelic single "Let's Go Swimming" that's from 1986, but it's really a unique piece of work that exists out of place and time – here in 3 distinctive versions along with a previously unreleased Gem Spa Dub version of "Make 1,2"! "Let's Go Swimming" is peak creative moment for Arthur, an accessible dance track that sounds as brilliant today as ever. All 3 versions of the track are here: Arthur's own Gulf Stream Dub and Pupply Surf Dub – plus the Coastal Dub version mixed by Walter Gibbons. This great 2011 Audika release also includes the 11+ minute "Make 1, 2 (Gem Spa Dub)" – another great one with a bit of a jazzy future soul vibe to it. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Also available Let's Go Swimming EP – Let's Go Swimming (Gulf Stream Dub, Puppy Surf Dub, Coastal Dub)/Make 1, 2 (Gem Spa Dub) ... CD 10.99

RZA & GZA/GeniusThird World (radio, album, acapella, inst) ... 12-inch
Columbia, 1997. Near Mint- .... $6.99
On this one, DJ Muggs does a nice take on the Wu-style production, combined with apocalyptic verses from RZA and GZA. The long intro uses a string section for a mellow 60's soundtrack feel, and then the beat kicks in with the familiar Wu harpsichord loop sound. From the DJ Muggs Soul Assasins LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a stickered sleeve.)

SkyyHigh/Skyyzoo ... 12-inch
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good+ .... $9.99
Larry Levan worked some incredible magic with Skyy's "Skyzoo" – turning a simple funk tune into a massive bit of dancefloor groove! The cut rolls out with a snapping, chanting beat from the very first note – hitting a nice party funk vibe in the first part, then moving into an even better old school blend of funky keys and tight guitar! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Salsoul sleeve.)

MED/Blu/Madlib feat Mayer HawthorneBuzz EP ... 12-inch
Bang Ya Head Entertainment, 2013. New Copy (pic cover).... Just Sold Out!
All star team 12-inch with Med & Blu on the mic and Madlib in the production booth – plus superstar guest appearances by Mayer Hawthorne and Dam-Funk! Buzz is the intoxicating lead off track of three great ones – with a gritty beat and soul string sample in the backdrop, busy rhymes and Mayer's classic Detroit soul inspired vocals on the hook. Includes a main mix, radio version, instrumental and bonus beat. The flip "Peroxide" co-stars Dam-Funk and has a heady funk vibe in place of the soul-styled A-Side. It's another major win - with a main mix, clean radio version, instrumental and acapella. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Nice packaging, too – wrapped like a premium bottle of booze!)

DITC, 1999. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Limited edition single with two new DITC tracks with that straight ahead break-beat production style from Show(biz). "Get Yours" features Diamond and Big L (with verses reminding us once more what hip hop lost.) This is the original version of the track that appeared on the "Black Mask". "Where You At" features verses from Big Pun & Milano. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Pay Jay, 2002/2013. New Copy (pic cover).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second fresh 12-inch of archival J Dilla from Pay Jay Productions and the Dilla Estate – with a couple of top notch cuts recorded in 2002 and slated for his vocals-centric record The Diary! This is the second knockout 12-inch featuring Diary material – this one featuring Dilla rhymes and Knottz production on "Diamonds – The Shining Pt 1" – making sweet use of a Seals & Crofts sample as a foil. "Ice – The Shining Pt 2" features production by Madlib – and "The D" is a Madlib beat that Dilla intended to add rhymes to before he passed away – and it's here in instrumental form. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Pressed on clear vinyl.)

New Just-IcePut That Record Back On (voc, inst)/Latoya/That Girl Is A Slut ... 12-inch
Fresh, 1986. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This is Just-Ice's first single, with a track that didn't make it to the LP, plus the original version of "Latoya" that's better than the LP version. "Put That Record Back On" is the cut here, with classic Mantronix production, from around the same time as his other big singles. And all the cuts include a whole lot of nice beat boxing from the Human DMX. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing in a Fresh sleeve, with a cut corner.)
