LP, Vinyl record album

Life is good, and so is Nas – and that's an understatement – as he's one of the most vital MCs of the early 90s onward! Life Is Good finds Nas in a somewhat liberated mode, though still rocking an Empire State Building-sized chip on his shoulder – and spitting charismatic vitriol at any target deemed worthy – but he's too smooth and too sharp of a lyricist for it come off as too ill-mannered. Good stuff from a legend. Includes "No Introduction", the standout "Loco-Motive" with Large Professor, "Daughters", "Reach Out" with Mary J Blige, "Back When", "The Don", "Stay", "Bye Baby", "World's An Addiction" with Anthony Hamilton, "Summer On Smash" with Miguel & Swizz Beatz, "A Queen's Story" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

I Wish My Brother George Was Here
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)
The loopy West Coast classic! Heavily steeped in the P-Funk party vibe, Del's first LP is still a hip hop holy grail. Ice Cube's production is a nice snapshot of west coast hip hop circa '89, and Del's style is inimitable. Standouts Mistadobolina" and "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo" are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stones Throw's innovative upstart Jonwayne steps up big time with Rap Album One – which is, technically his first proper above ground rap album after a sprawling limited edition instrumentals release and some now hard-to-find cassettes – and it more than lives up to promise!

Roaratorio, 1977. New Copy
A really unique moment of music – rare duets between Steve Lacy and Joe McPhee – the latter of whom is playing soprano sax alongside Lacy! The material was recorded at the same time as Lacy's solo set Clinkers, but never issued at the time – and McPhee's a real revelation on ... LP, Vinyl record album
