Krush Groove (with bonus tracks)
Warner/Perseverance, 1985. New Copy
Not quite the Wild Style soundtrack, but still an early hip hop cinema classic – thanks to work from some of the bigger acts of the time! The movie's from a second generation of rap filmmaking – more narrative, less documentary – but over the course of years, the whole thing's ... CD

Tical
Def Jam, 1994. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most triumphant records from the first wave of Wu Tang Clan solo efforts – and an early 90s hip hop masterpiece that's hardly aged a day since!

Quality

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jewelz
Payday, 1997. Very Good+ 2LP (reissue)
Yet another album to add to your collection of unfairly slept on LPs. To our ears, this second LP is at least as dope as his classic first LP. The straight ahead hip hop lyrical style is still up to par, and the production is on point too, with some nice beats by fellow Diggin' In The Crates crew ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
SS, 1960s/1970s. Very Good+
Second volume in the series featuring original tracks that Wu-Tang has sampled – from the first LP onward. A diverse collection of everything from 60's soul to soundtracks to easy listening rarities.

Beautiful (radio, street, inst)/Flower (radio, street, inst)
ABB, 2004. Very Good+ (pic cover)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Runaway Slave
Payday, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The still-imitated classic first LP from the last of the days when major labels were still putting out dope underground MC's, and while underground MC's aim was still to move the crowd (and before P-LaMox put Payday's cheddar behind WC). With "Soul Clap", "Bounce Ta This", " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stunts, Blunts, & Hip Hop
Mercury, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Why is this album sooooo tough to find in an original pressing? Along with Showbiz and AG's first EP, and Lord Finesse's first couple releases, this album introduced the world to one of the longest running and most solid crews in hip hop, DITC. Classic and oft-imitated Diamond beats that laid the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cold Chillin, 1989. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The Biz spins a sad tale of unrequited love, in this classic off his second LP, The Biz Never Sleeps. Just a slow break, a piano loop, and Biz's mellifluous vocals. It's your party, Biz, and you can cry if you want to! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol, 1990. Very Good+
10 tracks in all: "This Should Move Ya", "Got To Have Your Love", "Tonight Is Right", "(I'm) Just Adjustin My Mic", "Stone Cold Roach", "I Get Lifted", "I Like The way (You Do It)" and "Get Stupid Part IV (Get On Up '90)&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy Boy, 1985. Very Good (pic cover)
Unlike his earlier tracks, this one sounds like it could be from the "Beat Street" soundtrack, complete with a sampler bassline, sung vocals, and samplers from the old Whiz Kid hits. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia, 1994. Very Good (pic cover)

Resurrection
Relativity, 1994. Very Good (reissue)
In 1994 when everyone seemed to be turning hardcore, Common Sense wasn't having it. Introspective tales of growing up and living on the South Side that fit perfectly with No I.D.'s mellow production and spiced up with two guest appearances by Y-Not aka Twilight Tone. Classic LP, solid all the way ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bigger And Deffer
Def Jam, 1987. Very Good
Maybe you won't rate this one as timeless as Radio, but it still has an energy missing so much of the hip hop that would follow it. Besides, the raw drum machine and cuts approach to production holds up so many years later, and James' rhymes, brags and delivery represent a bygone era of hip hop ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Def Jam, 1991. Very Good- (pic cover)
"Pop Goes..." was 3rd Bass' biggest commercial hit, taking on Vanilla Ice, if not by name, at least in concept (and video) , but the cut to check for here is "Derelicts..." , produced by Prince Paul and remixed by the Stimulated Dummies. Supposedly, Serch STILL has beef with ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rawkus, 1999. Near Mint- (pic cover)
The 'flying high' remix to this one from the Black Star LP definitely improves on the original, with a more late-night jazzy feel, plus you get a Pete Rock remix of "Respiration" featuring Common Sense and the Root's Black Thought. What more could you ask for? 12-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rawkus, 1999. Very Good (pic cover)
Two more nice ones from the Soundbombing II project. Mos Def and Mad Skills join High & Mighty for "B-Boy Document '99." The production is tight with a rare combination of a sound that could work in the clubs and still be true to the underground, complete with a nice chorus by Mos ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Geffen, 1988. Very Good
The first, or at least first recorded group featuring Muggs of Cypress Hill. Title track produced by the Shocklees. Includes "That's How We're Livin", "Everybody Get Loose", "Coolin In Cali", "Goes Like Dis", "Drums Of Steel", "Freestyle ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Running Thangs
Strong City/Uni, 1988. Used
One of those album's you have to love – not only because it's extra dope, but because it's a slept on gem by one of hip hop's pioneers – one that keeps it real in a sense that seems lost so many years down the line! Raw beats and ultimately fairly simple, but charismatic rhymes that ... CD

Strictly Ghetto
Cold Chillin, 1994. Very Good+
King Sun's solid yet hard-to-find Cold Chillin' album from the mid 90s – with raw production by Sudhama Ranganathan on a good deal of it that stands the test of time nicely! Includes the Ice Cube beef track "Suck No D**k" – produced by King Sun himself, whose on point rhymes ... LP, Vinyl record album

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A massive collection of old school tracks from the earliest days of hip hop – hand-picked by one of the greatest collectors around! 25 years ago, we were privileged enough to visit the small council flat of Sean P – who, even at that point, had an amazing collection of rare hip hop ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BBE (UK), 2001. New Copy 2LP
The deeply in-demand beats for Jay Dee's now classic 2001 effort! We don't need to tell you that Welcome 2 Detroit turned out to be a wonderful debut for the initial BBE hip hop series. It really started out as a breakbeat project from the late Detroit legend, but soon morphed into a full-on ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Criminal Minded (5 x 7" single box set)
B-Boy, 1987. New Copy 5 x 7"
One of the best debuts in the history of hip hop – and one of the most important albums the genre ever produced – in 5 X 7" box set! 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 ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Assam (voc, inst)
Funk Night, 2014. New Copy
A tight Detroit hip hop single on Funk Night – with rhymes by underground veteran Guilty Simpson and production by Musca – purportedly representing Saint Petersburg, Russia! It's actually a pretty straight up, no BS hip hop cut – with fresh flowing rhymes and a gritty beat that's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ruffhouse, 1993. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The second LP from Cypress Hill, and as far as we're concerned, the last great one. Muggs' beats get a bit darker on this album, but are still sharp enough to cut through even the thickest clouds of smoke. 14 tracks in all, including "I Wanna Get High", "I Ain't Goin' Out Like ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Prism, 1986. Good (pic cover)
The first Biz Markie ep on Prism.

Jive, 1994. Near Mint-
From back when Jive seemed to be on Hiero's jock, and released something from just about everyone in the crew – a lost early Hiero side, with their signature jazzed-out Bay area sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mad Sounds, 1994. Near Mint-
With two amazing tracks exclusive to this LP: Pharcyde "My Soul", with classic early Pharcyde production and lyrics as dope as anything on their first LP, about the music industry with the chorus "Everytime I step to the microphone I put my soul on 2-inch reals I don't even own." ...
