Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... CD CD format
Mercury, 1991. Used ... $3.99
A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more. CD

Compton's Most WantedIt's A Compton Thang ... CD CD format
Orpheus/Universal (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $13.99
Pivotal west coast rap from Compton's Most Wanted! NWA cast such a long shadow in the late 80s, especially in the nascent gangsta rap and G Funk scenes, it was tough for top shelf peers and followers to get their due, but CMW deliver the goods and this record stands the test of time! Production by LA old school-er the Unknown DJ and CMW's DJ Slip give this set a nice stripped down west coast sound, with MC Eiht holding up his own end of things (and taking up the slack for the Chill MC) on the mic. 11 tracks in all, including "It's A Compton Thang", "One Time Gaffled Em", "This Is Compton", "Late Night Hype", "Duck Sick", "I'm Wit Dat" and "Rhymes Too Funky Pt 1 (Live at Lonzo's 1988)".

New De La SoulArt Official Intelligence: Bionix – Edited Version ... LP LP format
Tommy Boy, 2001. Very Good+ 2LP ... $9.99
Their most consistent batch in years! It's been a little difficult to tell at times over the past few years if De La Soul has been trying harder to please their critics, or simply finally being true to themselves by expelling all traces of the perceived hippy-isms of their earlier work. The answer is probably somewhere in between, but leaning towards their autonomy. They've been a new group all together since Stakes Is High, and Bionix is certainly their best work since, with the Wu Tang-like piano driven beat of the title track, the catchy soul of "Baby Phat" and "Simply", both of which should be nice club hits, and more than a few subtle nods to the Prince Paul years, especially on the "Simply Havin" interlude. "What We Do (For Love)" makes great use of a Slick Rick guest spot – complete with the horny fanfare. Cee-Lo shows up on "Held Down", and B-Real appears on "Peer Pressure" – both of which suggest that De La spent a little time in Stankonia last year. Other tracks include "Watch Out", "Special", "The Sauce" and "Trying People". LP, Vinyl record album

DMXIt's Dark & Hell Is Hot (gold vinyl pressing) ... LP LP format
Def Jam, 1998. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $43.99 49.98
The late 90s debut of DMX – a huge hit for Def Jam, the Ruff Ryders camp and especially DMX himself – whose next few albums would top the charts! Rough, raw and hardcore lyrical imagery, and top notch Ruff Ryder production from Swizz Beats and PK, plus Dame Grease on a number of cuts. Still impressive work from one of the most uncomprimising stars to breakout so big in the late 90s/early 00s. Includes "Ruff Ryder's Anthem", "Look Thru My Eyes", "Let Me Fly", "How's It Goin' Down", "Crime Story", "I Can Feel It", "Stop Being Greedy", "Ni**az Done Started Something", "For My Dogs" and more. 19 tracks including skits. LP, Vinyl record album
(Very nicely done, heavy duty gold vinyl pressing for the albums 15th Anniversary!)

New Freestyle ProfessorsVintage The EP ... LP LP format
Freestyle, 2007. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
A nearly LP length comeback EP from Freestyle Professors – with beats by Show, Branesparker & Backtrack – and a classic era approach! Vintage is a perfect title – the sound and the rhyme style are straight up golden age, if newly produced. It's not a straight up impersonation of their older work, but true representation of the style. Nothing fancy of fashion forward, just solid hip hop! Includes 2 tracks produced by Showbiz – "FP's Pledge" & One Night", plus "Hear What I Hear", "NY Swagger", "Little Boy Blue" feat Kasha, "When Life Is Calling", "One Night", "Flow Time", "and more. 10 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album
