NERDNO_ONE EVER REALLY DIES ... CD
I Am Other/Columbia, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
The Neptunes & co.'s ever-evolving hip hop/electro pop creative outlet NERD is back with their best in years! NERD not only never ever really dies, they're also never ever to be dismissed as an occasional throwaway side project, and they never put out the same record twice. This one finds them slyly innovating in their stylistic playground without trying to reinvent the wheel, and laying off some of the live band fusiony aspects of past efforts – calling in favors from some brilliant guests who sound just as eager to try new things as Pharrell and Chad – including a couple great guest spots from Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna as a solid rhyme spitter instead of soulful chorus voice for a nice change of pace, an increasingly rare appearance from Andre 3000, MIA and others. Titles include "Lemon" with Rihanna, "Deep Down Body Thrust" and a bass credit for the mighty Thundercat, "Voila" with Gucci Mane & Wale, "1000" with Future "Don't Don't Do It" with Kendrick Lamar, "ESP", "Lighning Fire Magic Prayer", "Rollinem 7's" with Andre 3000, "Kites" with Kendrick Lamar & MIA, "Secret Life Of Tigers" and "Lifting You" with Ed Shearan.

Big BoiBoomiverse (swirl-colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Epic, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
A win for wily hip hip mainstay Big Boi's growing legacy as a solo star! The onetime more subtly innovative half of the Outkast – subtle as compared to Andre 3000's more flamboyant presence, anyway – succeeding mightily out front now, backed with solid, wisely timeless Organized Noize production and an impressive roster of guests, none of whom outshine Big Boi. They include Killer Mike, Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane & Pimp C. After all these years, Big Boi still manages to spit wordy, fast raps while sounding perfectly relaxed, and comparably laidback rhymes with fierce focus. Much respect staying true to his style and staying relevant! Includes "Da Next Day", "Kill Jill", "Mic Jack", "In The South", "Order Of Operations", "All Night", "Get Wit It", "Overthunk", "Chocolate", "Made Man", "Freakanomics" and "Follow Deez".

De La SoulShoomp (dirty, clean, inst, acapella)/Much More (dirty, clean, inst, acapella) ... 12-inch
AOI/Fat Beats, 2003. Sealed ... $6.99
2 De La Soul tracks, produced by Jay Dee! "Shoomp" has a blunt synth blip feel, with Jay Dee making nice use of a Tom Tom Club beat. It all plays along very well with guest Sean Paul's dancehall calling. "Much More" has a soft and soulful guest spot by Yummie, and the track recalls the "Baby Phat" single quite a bit. Two nice ones from De La – showing that they still have some skills to share, and that they're still going strong despite some highs and lows since the Stakes Is High days. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(With hype sticker.)

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh PrinceHe's The DJ, I'm The Rapper ... LP
Jive/Zomba, 1988. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
One of those rare moments where a mainstream hit goes onto preface years of creative talent to come – even though the whole thing might have seemed like a bit of a one-off at the time! The young Will Smith is fantastic as the Fresh Prince – full of charm, at a level that really upped the game for so many other MCs at the time – especially because both his lyrics and his subject matter weren't maybe the most cutting-edge, but could really come over strong, thanks to the inherent stardom in his presentation! We could well argue that Will on the album introduced the whole idea of a crossover hip hop star – one able to do just about anything – but the whole record would be nothing without the creative skills of Jazzy Jeff – who went the complete opposite way after his pairing with Will – more expressive, more experimental – and even more firmly committed to the underground. Yet it was also that easy bridge between underground and fame that made early hip hop albums like this so great – as Jeff brings forward so many great musical moments on titles that include "Live At Union Square", "DJ On The Wheels", "My Buddy", "Rhythm Trax House Party Style", "He's The DJ I'm The Rapper", "Hip Hop Dancers Theme", "Jazzy's In The House", and "Human Video Game". LP, Vinyl record album

Dug Infinite & No IDSampler Vol 1 ... LP
All Natural, 2002. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
Back in the day, before Common blew up, Dug Infinite and No ID were responsible for the mellow but tight beats he got to rhyme over. And though Common still gets us open on occasion, this instrumental LP shows that they were a big part of what made those early LPs so great, though we have to admit we're a bit biased, since so many of the track titles here name check our old digs on the South Side. Each of the 2 LPs is split into a Dug side and a No ID side, with loads of nice crisp beats and sweet jazzy samples that show off their Chicago pedigree. 14 tracks in all, including "Dr Wax", "3rd Rail", "I Used To Love HER (rmx inst)", "Fate Or Destiny", "The Fifty Yard Line", "Wacker Drive", "Super Nova" and "Thinking Cap".

GuruJazzmatazz Vol 1 (3LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Chrysalis, 1993. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... $72.99 79.99
A groundbreaking meeting of musical icons – with veteran jazz greats, a couple of then-young guns, and one of the MCs who helped bring jazz into hip hop in the first place! Jazzmatazz bridges both stylistic and generational boundaries in incredible ways, not only an earnest effort by Guru to pay heartfelt tribute to heroes, but to show his own and subsequent generations its the vitality and longevity jazz music – with a lineup that includes Donald Byrd, Roy Ayers, Ronny Jordan, Lonnie Liston Smith, Carleen Anderson, N'Dea Davenport and MC Solaar. Titles include "Slicker Than Most", "No Time To Play", "Loungin", "Sights In The City", "Le Bien, Le Mal", "Transit Ride", "When You're Near", "Down The Backstreets", "Respectful Dedications", "Take A Look At Yourself" and "Trust Me".
