CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Noo Trybe/Virgin, 1999. Very Good
"Full Clip" is a track from the "Full Clip - Decade of Gang Star" LP, and "DWYCK", featuring Nice & Smooth, is one of our favorite Gang Starr cuts, probably because Nice & Smooth lighten up the normally serious Guru. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rawkus, 2002. Very Good- (pic cover)
Kweli always gets us open, and teams up with NuSoul singer Bilal on "Waiting For The DJ", for a track with a spare soulful feel. "Guerrilla Monsoon Rap" pairs Talib with hot beatmaker Kanye West, plus guest MCs Black Thought from the Roots and Pharoahe Monch, for a good old ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Babygrande, 2005. Very Good (pic cover)
RZA brings his classic, string-accented soul salvo production aesthetic to "Biochemical Equation" while the Wu CEO raps the first bars – and brings in a deeper bass groove when Doom jumps in later! The track is refreshingly raw and pops it like it's 1999 – with a sound that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Understanding
Big Dada, 2002. Very Good 2LP
Nice UK hip hop from New Flesh, with rhymes by UK Graff writer Juice Aleem, and DJ Vadim collaborator Toastie Taylor, and guest work by Roots Manuva, Rammellzee, Gwen Esty, Gift of Gabb, and Beans from Anti Pop Consortium.

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ninja Tune, 2002. Near Mint- 2LP
Dynamic Syncopation returns, dropping another slice of hard hitting UK hip hop, recruiting the cream of the crop in underground MC's to bless the mic for them. It's a bit ironic that we have to look to Great Britain for raw, funky beats with straight ahead lyrics and on beat flow (all right, most ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cold Chillin/Landspeed, Late 80s/Early 90s. Very Good+ 3 LP

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Serchlite, 1997. Very Good+
Another cut takin' you on a tour of the five boroughs, with guest vocals by DV alias Khrist. Probably these guys' best single, from their early days, with a sort of sung chorus that reminds us a bit of BoneThugs & Harmony, but in a good way, if you can imagine that. 12-inch, Vinyl record

White On White Crime
Galapagos4, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP
Concept album/compilation from label co-founder DJ White Lightning features rappers forgoing their "MC" personalities to take on the persona of "criminals" in today's society. The characters personified range from Ted Turner/Jesus to an art dealer taking advantage of young ... LP, Vinyl record album

Knowsavage, 1993. Near Mint- (reissue)
What can we say... the amazing first single, produced by Premier, that ruled the airwaves here for months. 12-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Loud, 1993. Near Mint- (reissue)
Nice mid-tempo production by E Swift on these two from the 21 & Over LP. "Likwit" features a nice guest appearance by King Tee, who somehow seems to do his best work on his Alkaholiks' guest appearance. "Only When I'm Drunk" uses the "Seven Minutes of Funk" sample ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto
Polygram, 1991. New Copy (reissue)
Ed OG's nice debut, with a slightly jazzy touch on the production and literate, intelligent lyrics. We really couldn't get with "Bug A Boo", but besides that, this first LP's solid from start to finish, from the days when that wasn't so uncommon. Drop the needle on this and head back in ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Licensed To Ill
Def Jam, 1986. New Copy
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. ... CD

Piecelock 70, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The PUTS sound as fresh as ever on 12 Step Program – their 9th album, believe it or not – and it's among their best ever! People Under The Stairs hit the their creative stride in the 90s, relying on golden age styled rhymes and production, at a time when mainstream hip hop had gotten ... LP, Vinyl record album

Top Dawg Ent./Interscope, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Schoolboy Q's breakout Oxymoron – with appearances by Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Raekwon, Tyler The Creator and others. Includes the standout "Collard Greens" with Kendrick Lamar, "Los Awesome" feat Jay Rock, "Hoover Street", "What They Want" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Raising Hell
Profile, 1986. Very Good+
By the time this third LP dropped, (Reverend) Run, DMC and Jam Master Jay were seasoned vets, delivering stripped down second generation hip hop with the hardest sounds on the East coast, but without neglecting the party rocking side of the game. Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons are on production, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Def Jux, 2001. Very Good
The "Kill Em All" rmx is produced by RJD2 – the rest is done by Aes Rock. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stones Throw, 2003. Very Good (pic cover)
A couple of brand new cuts by DJ J Rocc of the World Famous Beat Junkies – his first (we think) effort for Stones Throw! "Play This (One)" is the kind of record that made DJs like Shadow and Cut Chemist saints of the sampler – capital F Funky drums all over the track, plus a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Def Jam, 1985. Very Good
Craziness! MCA (of the Beasties) and Burzootie go wild in the studio, and make a lot of noise with a drum machine. Not exactly an old school classic, but a goofy (and rare!) bit of early Def Jam in a nice maroon sleeve. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Death Mix Live
Paul Winley, 1983. Near Mint- (pic cover, reissue)
A classic lost old school single! Recorded live, with a totally raw feel, and pumped up by Bam back in the days when he had a lot going on. Great stuff, and with nearly 20 minutes of music, it's a great bargain! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Truth Hurts
Ground Control, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP
14 tracks in all, including a couple with beats by Pete Rock, Premier and Spinna, and bunch produced by underground beat makers. With "Understand", "On Dogz", "Sayin Somethin", "Just Because", "Situations", "Don't talk About It", "Wha ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jive, 1988. Good+ (pic cover)
Original pic sleeve version of this classic track from KRS' first Jive LP! 3 mixes, and the sublime "Jimmy", all housed in a very 80's-looking cover! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chocolate Industries, 2002. Very Good (pic cover)
Another wonderful lyrical statement from Chicago's Diverse. RJD2 produced the A side and it floats along with a nice vibes sample, much more dreamy than his usual funk production flair. The B side is more up tempo, with a nice rollicking funk guitar line driving the mix forward for further aural ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
God Connections
Correct, 1996. Very Good 2LP
Sharp storytelling and solid mid 90s hip hop from Al Tariq, a founding member of the Beatnuts – a somewhat slept on, wholy worthy set featuring production by No ID, VIC and The Beatnuts. LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bulletproof Wallets
Epic, 2001. Very Good 2LP
Ghostface's follow up to Supreme Clientele – a tough predecessor to live up, no doubt about that – but Bulletproof Wallets is still a cut or 10 above some of the Wu work of the later 90s and early 00s! The single "Ghost Showers" is a great track, and "Never Be The Same ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Molemen, 2001. Very Good 2LP
A nice batch of cuts from Chicago underground producers, the Molemen. Includes Juice "Reign", Prime "Unbreakable", Mass Hysteria "Persevere", Vakill "Equinox", Qwel "Not Impressed", Rasco "No Guarantees", Slug/Aesop Rock/MF Doom "Put ... LP, Vinyl record album

"Speakin" produced by J Rawls. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tommy Boy, 1989. Good+ (pic cover)
One of their great 12" singles, with the full 7-minute version of the classic "Buddy" featuring Q-Tip, Latifah, and Monie Love. Loads of extra mixes that all sound very different from one another. Between the remixes of the songs, there's enough material here to put together a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
ABB, 1998. Very Good
Adding to their already formidable skills, Dilated Peoples bring on the all-star supporting cast, with production by Kut Masta Kurt on and cuts by DJ Revolution on "Work The Angles", production by Alchemist and vocals by Defari on "Main Ingredient", and cuts by Babu on "Trip ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
