AMGB*tch Betta Have My Money ... CD
Select, 1991. Used ... $7.99
Let's face it, you're not buying an album entitled "B!tch Betta Have My Money" for lyrical depth. For better or worse, this one's earned its place in the hip hop history books, and we'll be the first to prop up "Vertical Joyride" as a funky guilty pleasure, and guaranteed floor filler for you working DJ's. 21 tracks, counting all the interludes, of rump-shaking, potty-mouthed, booty music, that believe it or not didn't come from the Dirty South, though it's no doubt in large part responsible for most of what has. Includes the title track, "Jiggable Pie", "Tha Booty Up", "Mai Sista Izza B!tch", "I Wanna Be Yo Ho","B!tch Betta Have My Money" and a whole trunk full of riffs on similar themes. CD

Big BoiBoomiverse ... CD
Epic, 2017. Used ... $6.99
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". CD

✨✧ Black MoonEnta Da Stage ... LP
Wreck, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
The legendary debut of Black Moon – and a landmark classic indie hip hop classic from the early 90s east coast scene! Beloved by the deeper digging hip hop heads back in the day, and making a few waves commercially with the singles "Who Got Da Props?" and "I Got Cha Opin", this one never really got its due in the mainstream despite being so hugely influential. Produced by Da Beatminerz and featuring appearances by Smif-N-Wessun and Havoc from Mobb Deep, this one's well worth catching up on – with the tracks ""Powaful Impak!", "Ack Like U Want It", "Sh** Iz Real", "Enta Da Stage" and more.

Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli)Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star ... CD
Rawkus, 1998. Used ... $3.99
The first full-length from Mos Def and Talib Kweli together as Black Star – a benchmark moment in hip hop history, and one of the finest duo vocal hip hip records of the 90s – and one of the best ever on Rawkus! In hindsight, it's all the more rewarding given Talib Kweli's longevity in proud, mic skills centric hip hop and while highs and lows of Mos Def's work as the years rolled along – and it still stands as strong (then) underground hip hop that takes on the commercial leaning themes of the day and well beyond. Stand out cuts include "Definition" "Twice Inna Lifetime", "Children's Story", "Respiration" featuring Common Sense – and other tracks include "Brown Skin Lady", "Yo Yeah", "Thieves In The Night" and more.

Childish GambinoAwaken My Love ... LP
Glassnote, 2017. New Copy ... On November 10, 2017
Childish Gambino once again transcends anything you might be expecting from an actor/musician – this is not some vain star trip at all, but a worthy, boundary-busting effort – and a pretty sizable step away from idiosyncratic, yet accessible hip hop into spacey pop funk! Strong stuff, following his own path in respectable, highly rewarding fashion. Includes "Me And Your Mama", "Have Some Love", "Boogieman", "Zombies", "Riot", "Redbone", "Terrified", "California", "Terrified", "The Night Me & Your Mama Met" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99 35.98
A huge creative leap forward for Common! Com had been slowly moving from a Chicago street poet role into a more universally conscious hip hop soul from record to record to this point, but Like Water For Chocolate is the one that really catapulted him deep into that realm – especially given the excellent, mood setting production of Jay Dee/J Dilla and The Soulquarians. For a little while there, we missed the rawer Relativity era vibe, and we didn't fall as head over heels for Like Water For Chocolate as the world at large did, but in hindsight, maybe we just weren't ready for it – it's easily amongst the best hip hop albums of the period. Titles include "The 6th Sense", "Cold Blooded", "Dooinit", "Geto Heaven Part Two" with D'Angelo, "Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)", "Heat", "The Light", "Thelonius", "Payback Is A Grandmother", "Funky For You", "A Film Called (Pimp)", "Nag Champa (Afrodisiac For The World)", "The Questions" and "A Song For Assata".

Crash CrewCrash Crew ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
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

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh PrinceHe's The DJ, I'm The Rapper (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Jive/Real Gone, 1988. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 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". Great 2CD version – featuring the songs missing from the previous single CD – "He's The DJ I'm The Rapper", "Hip Hop Dancer's Theme", "Jazzy's In The House", and "Human Video Game" – plus 11 more mixes, all the varying 12" takes on "Brand New Funk", "Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble", "Nightmare On My Street", and "Parents Just Don't Understand".

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 it's due! If you don't respect this album, you don't know a damn thing. Includes the immortal "I Ain't No Joke", "Eric B Is In The Cut", "I Know You Got Soul", "Move The Crowd", "Paid in Full", "Chinese Arithmetic", and "Eric B. Is President" plus 2 bonus tracks: "As The Rhyme Goes On (radio)" and "Paid In Full (mini madness – Coldcut rmx)". CD

FlamingosisBright Moments ... LP
Vinyl Digital, 2017. New Copy ... $21.99 23.98
Bright, breezy and easygoing, but still nicely funky sample-based production from Flamingosis! Lots of cool 70s and early 80s style sounds and samples are layered in, especiially clubby soul and funk, but various and diverse strains of it – but it's still got a focused vibe from track-to-track. There's really kind of a masterful way of bringing so much together into such tight package. Includes the title track featuring The Kount, "Make Me Late For Breakfast", "Next To You", "Feelings Of Sentimentality Due To Getting Curved", "Believe In Me", "An 8 Ball Affair", "All Natural" feat Tom Ribbons, "Casanova", "Airplane Mode", "Sunset Park", "Passing By" with Birocratic and more.
