Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy
The best cuts from Jonwayne's trilogy of cassette releases – the appropriately titled Cassette, Casset 2 and Cassette 3 – selected and compiled by the man himself for the excellent Cassette On Vinyl!

Legacy
Polar, 2014. New Copy
Jazzy hip hop producer/rhymer and longtime under-appreciated uber-talent J Rawls delivers what's billed as his final album as a solo emcee – and to underline the point, it's called The Legacy – focusing squarely on rhymes and lyrics and letting top notch producers handle the beats! It's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Redefinition, 2014. New Copy
Abstract, yet classic hip hop inspired instrumentals from Klaus Layer – a prolific German producer who continues to deliver the goods! For The People Like Us shows a lot of love for 90s east coast hip hop production, without imitating it – funky beats that'll get your heads nodding, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Southern Meridian (blood splattered vinyl – with bonus tracks)
Parallel Thought, 2014. New Copy
Gritty southern rap delivered with a laidback style, but with fully committed authority by Gene The Southern Child – backed by the chilly, ominious production Parallel Thought! They've worked as together as duo before, with pretty solid results, but they really step up their games on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stones Throw, 2003. New Copy 2LP
Damn! The MASSIVE collaborative album from the dynamic duo of Madlib and J Dilla! Essentially, Madlib handles the production on the even numbers in the set with Dilla on the vocals, and the roles are reversed on the odd numbers. Each producer does his own thing, as only he can do it – ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stones Throw, 2006. New Copy
Madlib returns as Beat Konducta for the second volume of his Movie Scenes program – a straight up aural film festival on wax – and perhaps the most hotly anticipated sequel since Return Of The King! There's really no going wrong with Movie Scenes. Madlib's beats on both volumes are ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ruff Draft, 2013. New Copy 2LP
Top shelf Dilla beats from the archives – and a strong debut full length from Ruff Draft Records! Posthumous releases by favorite departed artists can be a dicey proposition – and much to our relief, Rebirth Of Detroit delivers – with both high quality beats and positive mojo! ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy
Hazy beatcraft steeped in Indian soundtrack style funk, strings and percussion from the indefatigable Madlib – Volume 3 in the increasingly adventurous and conceptual outings of the Beat Konducta! This time out Madlib, er, Beat Konducta is conducting beats, strings & things from India ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat Konducta Vol 1 – Movie Scenes
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy
A platter of Madlib beats – the first in a series of instrumental hip hop from 'Lib's Beat Konducta (formerly Beat Conductor) moniker! Madlib's production work has always had a filmic groove, and this set collects and assembles the most cinematic of said beats into an (unsurprisingly) ... LP, Vinyl record album

Under Construction
Atlantic, 2002. Used
Missy and Timbaland (and the usual cast of guest stars) are back and hotter than ever before on Missy's fourth full length, much more of a hip hop record this time, with tons of old school party shouts and new school neo-electro production! Under Construction is kind of a concept album (don't ... CD

Ruffhouse/Columbia, 1997. Used
14 tracks in all, including "Psycho City Blocks", "Showdown", "The Big Payback", "Stone Garden", "Confessions Of A Drug Addict", "Love From The Sick Side", "Lost Cities" and "Psyclones". CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy
Mad hip hop from Madlib's Quasimoto persona – with the Yessir Whatever compilation standout "Planned Attack" – backed by the unreleased "Talkin' S**t"! The former is quintessential Quasimoto, with a smoked out, heavy bass funk beat, and mad wordplay, scratch ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Madlib Invazion, 2014. New Copy
The full length debut of Madlib as the Rock Konducta is a doozy – and 'Lib sounds as distinctly mad as ever – utilizing prog and psych samples, along with his usual bottomless reserve of funky building blocks, to craft one of his finest hip hop instrumentals sets in quite a while! Part ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1994. New Copy 2CD
CD...$14.99 16.98 (LP)
20th anniversary edition of Nas's masterpiece Illmatic – which will probably stand forever as one of the greatest hip hop full lengths of its time – maybe even for all time. Nas has had some creative ups-and-downs over the years, but nothing can take away the impact of this damn near ... CD

Low End Theory
Jive, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The second album from the immortal Tribe Called Quest – one of the absolute essential hip hop LPs, and a record that should be an anyone's shortlist of the best albums in several subsections of hip hop – just a straight up masterpiece anyway you cut it. The album is so high up on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Midnight Marauders
Jive, 1993. New Copy (reissue)
A masterpiece from prime era Tribe Called Quest! Midnight Maurauders was Tribe's third LP, and even though there were no tracks yet credited to the Ummah, this is pretty much the beginning of Tribe's transition to that sound – with the same mellow, laid back vibe as their best early material ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stones Throw, 2004. New Copy (pic cover)
A few more slices of sci fi weird hop from MC Doom, and mad, mad, Madlib! "Illist Villains" is the villain manifesto showcase for Madlib, burying deep, creepy organ and synth washes into a bunch of layered sci fi flick sound bites and beats. Doom does his thing on "Curls", ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Loud/RCA, 1993. New Copy
The classic first LP with Method Man, Ghost Face Killer, Raekwon, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and The Genius. The start of a generation, and of the hip hop enterprise that overshadowed a lot of the mid 90s! 12 tracks, including "Can It All Be So Simple", "Method Man", "Da Mystery ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Donuts
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2LP
The classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Madvillainy
Stones Throw, 2004. New Copy 2 LPs
A Stones Throw sci-fi masterpiece – one that was destined for greatness from conception, but we're still pretty well blown away by the final product! MC Doom and beatmaster Madlib couldn't be better suited for a collaboration. As much as we've dug the best of Doom's material of the last ... LP, Vinyl record album

Unseen
Stones Throw, 2000. New Copy 2LP
Madlib is back with his split personality rhymesayin self, the one and only weird and wacky sounding Quasimoto. Another Stones Throw hip hop classic, with Madlib producing and rhyming on the tracks, speakin about jazz, outerspace, and microphones. Tracks include "Bad Character", "Mi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mello Music Group, 2014. New Copy
Hypnotic hip hop from L'Orange – a freely creative producer/artist delivering nicely for the Mello Music Group – with the busiest and most ambitious indie hip hop labels of the new millenium teens!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fantastic Vol 2
Good Vibe/Barak, 2000. Used
One of the most influential albums of recent hip hop history gets a nice CD reissue! Fantastic wasn't considered a masterpiece upon its long-delayed original release, and truth be told, the quality and depth of the rhymes are wildly inconsistent, but there is no denying the genius of Jay Dee's ...

Tommy Boy, 1993. Near Mint-

Licensed To Ill
Def Jam, 1986. Very Good Gatefold
The game-changing Def Jam classic from the mid 80s – and still possibly the greatest album by the Beastie Boys – even though they'd grow up a whole lot after this! The Beasties later distanced themselves from much of the attitude of this album, and you can't fault the Boys for maturing. ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jive, 1987. Very Good
Not everyone agrees with us, but this is definitely one of our all-time favorites! Inspired cuts include the title cut, "B-Boy Rhyme and Riddle", "We Get Ill", "Parkside 5-2", "We Get Ill", and the Code Money DJ track, "It's Krack". LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pop Art, 1985. Near Mint-

From Where???
Big Beat/Atlantic, 1996. Very Good+ 2LP
Overlooked genius from Madd Skillz! He's one of those MCs from the mid 90s (like Supernatural) who everyone was watching, did loads of mixtape appearances, put out something on a LP on a major label, and then just about disappeared. He deserved more! Tuere's some really dope tracks that let you ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nuff Respect (voc, inst)
MCA, 1991. Very Good+ (pic cover)
From the Juice soundtrack with extra hyped production by Hank Shocklee and some fierce fast rhymes by the Kane to match. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fresh, 1986. Very Good+
The classic first Just-Ice LP. The album is produced by Mantronik, although we always thought that Just-Ice also had a hand in the production, since the sound is harder and slower than the other early Mantronik productions. The record features beatboxing by the "Human DMX" and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rawkus, 1997. Very Good+ (pic cover)
One of the singles that really put Rawkus (and Mos Def) at the forefront of independent hip hop. "Fortified Live" features Mos Def and Mr. Man of the Bush Babees on guest rhymes. Like a lot of the other Rawkus acts, Reflection Eternal maintain the perfect balance of abstract lyrics, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ruffhouse, 1991. Very Good+ (pic cover)
This one needs no introduction from us. Classic debut single that introduced the world to Cypress Hill, and one that still holds up after all these years. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Raw Shack, 1997. Very Good+
Follow up to his 1995 underground hits, including a nice remix of Braggin Writes. 12-inch, Vinyl record
