Rawkus, 1998. New Copy
The first full-length from Mos Def and Talib Kweli together as Black Star – a benchmark moment in hip hop history, and one of the finest duo vocal hip hip records of the 90s – and one of the best ever on Rawkus! In hindsight, it's all the more rewarding given Talib Kweli's longevity in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reflection Eternal
Rawkus/Universal, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Brilliant early work from Talib Kweli – who pretty much cemented his repuation as one the greatest MCs of his generation around this time – and it's tight as ever! We thought Black Star never outta separate way back then, but onn this burning set of dope joints, we all found out Talib ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful Struggle
Rawkus/Interscope, 2004. New Copy 2LPs (reissue)
Talib returns with another very strong full length set – lyrics blazing like wildfire, enveloped by beats by Dave West, Kanye, the Neptunes, Hi Tek, Just Blaze and others! Kweli has assembled a laundry list of capital names to man the boards on these tracks, but the producers collectively ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bridge, 1986. Very Good+ (reissue)
"Beat Biter" is MC Shan's classic cut (never before reissued) where he accuses LL Cool J of stealing his beat for "Rock The Bells". He calls out LL at the top of the cut, but even if it wasn't clear who he's talking about, Marley Marl cuts in a sample of Foghorn Leghorn saying ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Fluorescent Black
Big Dada (UK), 2009. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Anti Pop Consortium is back after a lengthy hiatus – and it's a blast – laser cauterized funk beats, squealing synth funk, and innovative rhymes from Beans, Blaize, Hi Priest and Sayyid! The crew is in a unique position for this comeback record, in that they can pick up pretty close to ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Self: Volume 1
Mountain Brothers, 1998. Used
Long awaited debut from some of Philly's finest. The spare, jazzy production has a similar feel to "Paperchase", their classic first single from 1986, plus few more uptempo tracks and some dj interludes. One of the better tracks is "Day Job", about somtheing a whole lot of MC's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Last Days
Modulor, 2013. Used
Instrumentals from French hip hop collective Klub Des Loosers – flavored nicely with mad sampled film dialogue, revolving bits of sound library styled funk, spacey touches of electro and other tripped out touches! The tracks were largely produced in 2006 and 2007, and eventually finished and ... CD

Go Head EP

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

Six Degrees/Tones Rap (inst) (10 inch single – with download)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Def Jam, 2010. New Copy
LP...$9.99 12.98
A less tense and caustic Roots than the crew that hit us on the majority of Rising Down a couple years earlier – and this one's as strong of an album as they've delivered since moving over to Def Jam. In truth, we were a little scared when we saw some of the guests credited – Monsters ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 2003. New Copy 2LP
Madlib invades Blue Note! He gets free reign of the catalog for this mix of sampler genius and live band interpretations, too, as/with Ahmad Miller, Yesterdays New Quintet, Malcolm Catto, Medaphoar, and others from the Stones Throw camp. This one's truly a conceptual triumph, if there ever was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1994. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

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 ...

Interscope, 1997. Very Good+
In spite of their name Jurassic 5 deliver thoroughly new school hip hop, but with an eye over their shoulder to the old school sound of groups like the Treacherous Three and Funky Four + 1. Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark keep the production nice and funky, but steer clear of the repetitive sound of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Madlib is back with his split personality rhymesayin self, the one and only weird and wacky sounding Quasimoto.

The big cut from their "Crazy Noise" LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Crazy Noise
Fresh, 1989. Very Good+
A classic from the vaults of Fresh Records! The album is fairly legendary to beatheads for the Skull Snaps beat that kicks in the start of the track "It's My Turn" (with much respect to Dooley O) but this album stands up as a great listen that should stretch far beyond the Wax Poetics ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MCA, 2002. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Shadow's first single off his second LP, and believe it or not, it's as much of a pop/rock record as the UNKLE LP was! We're not complaining though, because this one's got a great new wave twist to it, and on the third track of this single, Shadow's back in battle mode, with vocal cut-ups over a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tommy Boy, 1991. Very Good
Fantastic 12" with soooo many different mixes of this fantastic De La song. Enough stuff to make up a full-length "Saturdays" suite, really, with lots of cool bits and very different takes on the same song. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jive, 1988. Near Mint-
Competent follow-up to their "Weightless" LP. Tracks include "On", "Every Kid's Dream", "Skinny", "Mystery", "Stylin", "Free Your Mind", "Skinny Groove", and "Get Pepped". LP, Vinyl record album

4th & Broadway, 1991. Near Mint-
Similar to their hit "Wash Your Face In My Sink". The b-side features an appearance by Slim Galliard. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
First Priority, 1991. Near Mint-
Extended version of the track from Lyte's second LP. With a similar subject to "Cram to Understand", but the production style leans a little bit toward new jack swing and has singing on the chorus. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Oh! Veronica (long, inst, radio, beat box)
Pop Art, 1986. Very Good
We're almost embarrased to admit it, but we still kinda like these crazy one-off novelty singles from the mid-80s. If you like that kind of stuff, this one is sort of like "Roxanne, Roxanne" but a little more hardcore, with better production and DJ work. And, as a bonus, you get Craig G ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Relativity, 1996. Very Good+
The cut here is Common's "The Bitch In Yoo" (original, unedited version, complete with the soundtrack intro), his famous dis of Ice Cube and the Westcoast Connection, produced by Pete Rock, released only on promo 12" single and this promo-only sampler. By the time the LP came out, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Reality, 1985. Very Good
What can we say? The classic single from Doug E Fresh that introduced the world to Slick Rick and has been sampled and quoted more times than we can count! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rawkus, 1997. Near Mint- (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
Chocolate Industries, 2000. Very Good (pic cover)
Featuring vocals from Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Mr. Lif and cuts by DMC champ DJ Craze, this track has a much straighter beat than some of the more abstract electronics you might expect from Push Button. Plus the b-side "Breaker's Delight" a squishy electro track, ripe for your ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Select, 1985. Very Good
It's hard to place these mid-80's singles on Select – the production and rhyming definitely sound ancient, and they're not timeless in the way the early 80's singles on Enjoy are – but that doesn't mean they weren't kind of fresh at the time. This one, Whistle's best cut, is a good ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Def Jam, 1991. Near Mint-
We're going to be honest here and tell you that Nikki D's rhymes are nothing special, but they don't insult us either. What does set this LP apart though is some nice production from Leaders Of The New School, Eric Sadler of the Bomb Squad and a remix by the Large Professor. 12 tracks in all, ...

Def Jam, Mid 80s/Mid 90s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Well, Def Jam will probably never reissue all the great older LL material, but at least they gave us this nice 2LP set of hits! Titles include "Goin Back To Cali", "Jack The Ripper", "Jinglin Baby", "Big Ole Butt", "I Can't Life Without My Radio", ... LP, Vinyl record album
