Legacy
Polar, 2014. New Copy

Ghetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop
Jive, 1989. Used
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect ... CD

The lost second KMD LP finally reissued in full, with a few tracks maintaining the jazzier sound of the first album, but mostly coming a little harder, though still in a classic early '90's hip hop vein.

No Need For Alarm
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initally underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! ...

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

Funky Ass, 1999. Used
In the universe of Kool Keith projects, this one is maybe closest to the Sex Style LP lyrically – but the production is better than both Sex Style and Dr Octagon. We're guessing the reason is that Kool Keith had more to do with the production on this one. There's more variety in the beats, ... CD

Pure greatness from Brand Nubian at their early best! The Nubes' have made a handful of solid-to-great albums, but none could top this essential debut.
