Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... LP
Mercury, 1991. Very Good ... $34.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has moderate wear, light stains and a bit of red marker.)

Compton's Most WantedIt's A Compton Thang ... CD
Orpheus/Universal (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $14.99
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)".

Crash CrewCrash Crew ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the greatest hip hop acts from the early days of Sugar Hill – but a group who don't often get the same sort of cred as the label's bigger names at the time! The Crash Crew have a youthful energy that really lives up to their name – a loose approach to rhyme that sounds especially live on the longer tracks on the album – mixes with a more tuneful style at times that almost prefaces the growth of the genre in years to come! "Breaking Bells" and "We Want To Rock" both have a massive South Bronx party feel – and other cuts include "Scratching", "On The Radio", and "We Are Known As Emcees". LP, Vinyl record album

Fat BoysFat Boys ... LP
Sutra, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.98
The Kurtis Blow-produced debut album by The Fat Boys! We'll say it: respect is due to The Fat Boys – novelty status, fat comedy cliches and Disorderlies aside. If you're a child of the early 80s, there's a reasonable chance The Fat Boys were the first rap group you ever heard – and that alone makes them no joke if you ask us. Another thing: the best of their cuts are pretty damn nice and hold up as well some of the best rap circa '84 – and this debut album indeed features some of their best cuts. Includes "Stick 'Em", "Fat Boys", "The Place To Be", "Human Beat Box", "Can You Feel It?", "Don't You Dog Me" & "Jailhouse Rap". LP, Vinyl record album
