✨✧ Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli)Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star (two-tone vinyl with star design) ... LP
Rawkus, 1998. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
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 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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition two-toned vinyl with star pattern – very nice!)

CommonCan I Borrow A Dollar? (2LPs with bonus 7 inch) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Relativity/Nature Sounds, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... On April 21, 2018
Common's full length debut! This one's a little more uptempo and overall less serious than "Resurrection", and a few cuts that are as good as anything on that LP – Common went on to a pretty diverse career, and this is the blueprint material for his most respected records. Production by Twilight Tone, Immenslope, and the Beatnuts. Includes "Penny For My Thoughts", "Soul by the Pound", "Take It Eazy", "Breaker 1/9", "Two Scoops of Raisins", "Tricks Up My Sleeve", Blows To The Temple" and more. (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, April 22.

Del The Funky Homosapien & Tame OneParallel Uni-Verses (colored vinyl) ... LP
Gold Dust, 2009. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Heiro hero Del The Funky Homosapien teams up with Artifacts and Weathermen veteran Tame One to trade rhymes – with production by Parallel Thought – a solid set and another winner on the Gold Dust Media label, which is put out a number of classic era reverent records to date! The beats are often rooted in spare, gritty funk with hard not to nod your head to beatcraft – with something else going on in the outer edges, from vibes to chimes. The rhymes are straight up and sold, each sounding right at home in the Parallel production. Titles include "Keep It Up", "Flashback", "Specifics", "Before This", "Life Sucks", "Teddy", "Gaining Ground" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited purple & white smoked colored vinyl))

✨✧ El Michels AffairReturn To The 37th Chamber (with bonus download) ... LP
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $19.99 22.98
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right down to its roots – performing new live interpretations with their wickedly sinister groove – all at a level that makes the whole thing a slow funk masterpiece from start to finish! El Michels has always been one of the few real standouts in the deep funk scene – and it's records like this that keep us loving them so much. And even though the set features vocals from Lee Fields on two tracks, and Lady Wray on one more – the instrumental groove is what dominates and draws our ears, on tracks that include "Tears", "Sipped Up", "Shadow Boxing", "Iron Man", "4th Chamber", "Shaolin Brew", "Drums For Sale", "Verbal Intercourse", "Tearz", and "Wu Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin Ta F Wit". (Deep Funk, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download! Please Note – LP sleeves are variable.)

Gensu DeanRAW (Refined Alkaline Water) (with download) ... LP
Mello Music Group, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 21.98
Producer Gensu Dean steps out from behind the scenes and getting more comfortable headlining his own high quality records after years in the game – and the guest vocalists are a solid indicator of his pedigree as a producer – including Diamond D, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Homeboy Sandman, Roc Marciano, J-Live and others! We love how Gensu stays somewhat true to classic school hip hop craft, with samples, scratches and soulful beats, but there's plenty of distinctive touches that keep it fresh, inspired and contemporary. Solid stuff. Includes "Dreams" feat Dynas, "Principles & Codes" with Diamond D, "Opponents" with J-Live, "Floral "Walking" feat Georgia Anne Muldrow, "Ball Of Yarn" with Roc Marciano, "RAW feat Yarbrough, "PEACE", "Where Is The Love" with Homeboy Sandman LP, Vinyl record album

Black Eyed PeasEND ... LP
Interscope, 2009. New Copy 2LP ... $14.99 27.99
The best of the post-Elephunk mainstream conquering era records by the Black Eyed Peas – comfortably balancing bright dance pop and hip hop as strongly as ever! The career arc of the BEPs is as unlikely as anything in modern popular music, from the indie soul inspired alternative rap early on to the fun mainstream figureheads at this point, and this is probably their peak on the side of it. Includes "Boom Boom Pow", "Rock That Body", "Meet Me Halfway", "Imma Be", "I Gotta Feeling", "Missing You", "Ring-A-Ling", "Party All The Time", "Now Generation", "One Tribe", "Rockin' To The Beat" and more.

ClipseTil The Casket Drops ... LP
Columbia/Get On Down, 2009. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Malice & Pusha T back with The Neptunes on the bulk of Til The Casket Drops – recorded Columbi, after the Jive Records swan song/uncompromising masterpiece Hell Hath No Fury back in '06, and this one still head-and-shoulders above most major label hip hop LPs circa '09! The couple of concessions to street rap radio can be forgiven with album tracks that cut as deep as the ones here – with a couple produced by DJ Khalil, and guests including Kanye West, Yo Gotti, Cam'Ron, Ab Liva, Keri Hilson & Nicole Hurst. Titles include "Freedom", "Popular Demand (Popeyes) feat Cam'Ron & Pharrell, "Kinda Like A Big Deal" feat Kanye West, "Showing Out" feat Yo Gotti, "I'm Good" feat Pharrell, "Door Man", "Never Will It Stop" feat Ab Liva, "All Eyes On Me" feat Keri Hilson, "Counseling" feat Nicole Hurst, "Life Change" and more.
