Two of post millennium indie hip hop's most distinctive rhyme stylists – Open Mike Eagle and Serengeti – teaming up as Cavanaugh, and it's as inspired of a project as we'd hoped! There's a dark, hazy mood here – particularly in the thick waves of synth in the production, but the ... read more CD

CommonBlack America Again ... CD
Def Jam, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A stunner from a bonafide pride of Chicago and all around hip hop hero Common – on point lyrically with a political and spiritual focus as broadly-concerned as anything he's done since Like Water For Chocolate – and moving in the new realms sound wise, too! Black America Again sports a ... read more CD

Cypress Hill's debut masterpiece – one of the biggest and best first albums in 90s hip hop – in cased here in skull for its 25th Anniversary!

Eric B & RakimPaid In Full (with bonus remixes) ... CD
Island, 1986. New Copy ... $3.99 5.98
Paid In Full, indeed. Eric B & Rakim's seminal album still pays off in so many ways, and it was such a vital link between the party rockin' style of the old school and the terse, hard-hitting beats and rhymes of what was then the new school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise ... read more CD

Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release!

A killer compilation of rare Dilla instrumentals that hones in on his electronic-influenced side!
