Sex Packets

LP (Item 486569) Tommy Boy, 1990 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 4

Digital Underground's first album of P-Funky, hook heavy, party rockin hip hop for Tommy Boy! The first two albums by Shock G and the rest of the crew are classics, even if they don't get enough always get the props – possibly because the well the well of P-Funk samples wasn't necessarily the freshest waters, and also because the "Humpty Dance" was such a crossover smash, but few through a party like Digital Underground at the dawn of the 90s, and it's fresh and funky all these years later. Titles include the hit "Doowutchyalike" and the mega hit "Humpty Dance", plus "Freaks of the Industry", "Doowutchyalike", "The Way We Swing", plus "Sex Packets", "Street Scene", "Packet Man", "Underwater Rimes (rmx)", 'The New Jazz", "Rhymin On The Funk", 'The Danger Zone" and "Packet Reprise".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Street Level
Relativity, 1994. New Copy
The first full-length Beatnuts album – pressed on 2LP for the first time ever! Street Level is designed to succeed on, well, street level – but it's actually pretty damn diverse in retrospect!

Hard To Earn
Chrysalis, 1994. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Gang Starr at pretty close to peak level here on 1994's Hard To Earn – and rather than continue to ride the waves they made on the previous couple classic albums, Guru sharpens the lyrical tone just a bit – spitting some more incisive rhymes over apporpriately gritty soul jazz beats ...

Future Without A Past
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The amazing debut of those most hyperactive of the Native Tongues, the short-lived, ultra fresh Leaders Of The New School!

Sparely funky, yet heavily atmospheric hip hop productions from unsung titan Kankick – made up mostly of late 90s material – and it's right up with some of our favorite leftfield producers of the period!
