✨✧ 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".

Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... CD
Mercury, 1991. Used ... $4.99
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.

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". LP, Vinyl record album
(High quality Def Jam reissue – with nice, heavy vinyl.)

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".
