Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli)Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star ... CD
Rawkus, 1998. New Copy ... $4.99 10.98
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.

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 ghetto fabulous themes of the day and well beyond. Stand out cuts include "Definition" "Twice Inna Lifetime", "Children's Story" – the Slick Rick classic redone along the lines of Jeru's "One Day" – and "Respiration" featuring Common Sense – and other tracks include "Brown Skin Lady", "Yo Yeah", "Thieves In The Night", "Twice Inna Lifetime and more. 13 in all.

CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 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.)

✨✧ De La SoulDe La Soul Is Dead ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1991. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The epic second De La Soul album – a slightly deeper record than the upbeat 3 Feet High And Rising, but to us it's just as irrefutably classic – and among the best hip hop full lengths ever! The trio is still working with Prince Paul, so despite the cover image and declaration of the end of the Daisy age, there's no shortage of humor and bouncing good time hip hop – if a turn tougher. To put it simply, this is one of the many reasons we look a the early 90s as the salad days of hip hop. With "Oodles Of O's", Talkin' Bout Hey Love", "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays", "Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa", "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)", "Keepin' The Faith", "Bitties In The BK Lounge", "Pass The Plugs" and, as was the style at the time, loads of funny skits. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original promo pressing. NOTE – This copy no longer has the cover, and comes in a plain sleeve.)

Dia.L (Lailah Reich & Radius)Dia.L (with download) ... LP
Etc, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
The self-titled debut of Dia.L – the duo of vocalist, viola and kalimba player Lailah Reich and ever-creative Chicago producer Radius! The name is pronounced as "dial", and they dial up a really unique sound with boundless astral atmosphere, but it still has a fairly intimate feel, rooted in abstract soul. The soulful resonance is especially strong because of the sweet, subtle and hushed quality of Lailah's vocals, which blend with and dance alongside the beats in a beautiful way! On that front, Radius never disappoints on the production tip, always able to balance a undercurrent of insistent beats with atmospheric effects, and the sky is the limit when working with an intuitive vocal partner. Titles include "Wide Eyed" with guests Kenny Keys and Jana Buttanari, "Sadness", "Harvest Of Calm", "Poi Tree", "Robots", "Trade Winds", "Piece Peace" and "Next Chapter".

Dilla TurntableDilla Turntable – Portable Turntable (with 7 inch) ... Turntable
Pay Jay, 2017. New Item ... $99.99 119.98
A sweet little J Dilla themed turntable – an official release of the James Yancey estate – and not only is it very nice looking, it's fully portable, and reasonably priced to boot! The Dilla Turntable is made especially for portable use – it folds into a sturdy mini-suitcase – but it would work as an affordable, entry-level standalone turntable, too. It's got a platter that's a little bit bigger than a 45, but will equally spin 10" and 12" vinyl with the lid open – it's in fact a 3-speed player, spinning at 33, 45, and 78rpms. Comes with built-in stereo speakers but has an RCA output if you'd like to plug it into a bigger stereo system, a 1.8" headphone jack, a USB output so you can record music directly into your computer (a transcription software disc is included in the package), a 45 adaptor, and even a replacement stylus! Last but not least, it comes with an exclusive 7-inch by Dilla & Nas – the Diary LP bonus track "The Sickness" produced by Madlib. (All Categories, Hip Hop) Turntable
(Includes an exclusive 7-inch single – "The Sickness" by J Dilla & Nas, produced by Madlib. Picture sleeve, too!)

✨✧ 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
