LP (Item 23168) Bad Boy, 1994 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.70 4

A nice mid 90s hip hop album that seems to have become a bit of a bench warmer, though we'd say it deserves starting status for the class of '94. An early set on Bad Boy, from the days before Puffy starting flexing too much creative control, when you'd get tracks from them that worked on the radio and in the clubs but would still get the straight hip hop heads open. One of Easy Mo Bee's best set of tracks, and nice rhymes from Craig Mack, before his style got co-opted by other MC's when it still sounded fresh. Includes the classic "Flava In Ya Ear", the cautionary "When God Comes", "Get Down", "Real Raw" – with a dope use of the "Days of Our Lives" theme and a nice quote from his first single "Get Retarded."

Ain't That A Bitch
DJM, 1976. Very Good-
Maybe the best album that Johnny Watson cut during his DJM years – a totally tight, totally soulful set that avoids any fake funk cliches! The record's got some wonderful trippy numbers – cut in that slow g-funky mode that was Johnny's huge legacy to the west coast scene – best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Everything Is Everything
Atco, 1970. Very Good+
Landmark stuff, and a beautiful album that mixes soulful tracks with Donny's nascent jazz sensibility!
