BeansTomorrow Right Now ... CD
Warp, 2003. Used ... $1.99
Beans hits the dirt first – here's the first post Antipop solo project. Like that crew's later work it's a lot better than us sample-loving hip hop purists want to admit – pretty much a continuation of Ahrythmia without the rest of the group. When Beans is rhyming – and for most of this LP he's right there – everything's on point. His flow is fast, smart, and crystal clear, and he has a playful way in which his delivery surrounds the beats. At his best he reminds us of recent Del. When he's sitting out on tracks, you're subjected to blips, bloops, and computer babble that's better left to the other artists on Warp. Tracks include "Roar", Phreek the Beat", "Mearle", "Raping Silence", "Toast", "Hot Venom", "Mutescreamer", Booga Sugar", "Slow Broken", and more. 14 tracks on one shiny disc. CD

✨✧ Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... CD
Mercury, 1991. Used ... $3.99
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.

Danny BrownOld ... CD
Fool's Gold, 2013. Used ... $4.99
Danny Brown steps up his game on Old – delivering on all the promise of his much-hailed previous Fool's Gold LP – and actually topping it! Danny's XXX was a mix of next-level smarts and production, balanced with knowlingly gutter dwelling rhymes – but this one is knowingly more "mature" on the vocal tip, to a degree – but don't worry, it's still Danny Brown! Once again, the production is brilliant – but with better pacing throughout, making this one of the stronger hip hop full lengths of '13. Includes production by Paul White, Rustie, SKYWLKR, A-Trak and others. Includes "(Old)", "The Return" with Freddie Gibbs, "Wonderbread", "Gremlins", "Torture", "Lonely", "Clean Up", "Red 2 Go", "Dubstep" feat Scrufizzer, "Dip", "Kush Coma" with A$ap Rocky & Zelooperz, "Smokin & Drinkin", "Break It (Go)", "Way Up Here" feat Ab-Soul, "Float On" feat Charli XCX and more.

ClipseHell Hath No Fury (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 2006. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The long-gestated follow up to the breakout Lord Willin' record by Clipse – announced in fall 2003 – finally released in late 2006! Hell Hath No Fury may have been on ice for 3 years, but it appeared as an instant classic, WAY up at the top of the list of greatest hip hop LPs of the mid 00s. The Neptunes beats are very spare and chilly, despite the fiery title – while the Pusha T & Malice style of precise storytelling and detached deliveries probably make them one of the most natural duos in the game. A gritty rap masterpiece. Tracks include "We Got It For Cheap", "Momma I'm So Sorry", the masterful "Mr Me Too" feat Pharrell, "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)" feat Slim Thug, "Dirty Money", "Ride Around Shining" feat the Re-Up Gang, "Key's Open Doors", "Chinese New Year" feat Rosco P Coldchain, "Nightmares" feat Pharrell & Bilal and more.

CommonThisisme Then – Best Of Common ... CD
Relativity/Legacy, 1990s. Used ... $1.99
An overview of Common's early days on Relativity – featuring a few tracks each from Can I Borrow A Dollar?, Resurrection and One Day It Will All Make Sense – a strong sampler of his earlier greatness, if it breaks off way too early to be a genuine best of! Quibble as me might with the title, a compilation of Com's Relativity-era work is long overdue – and it's a display of his 90s Chi hip hop style. If you only came aboard with Like Water For Chocolate or Be, you need to take a look back! Benchmark work with production by Immenslope & Twilite Tone, No ID, Beatnuts and more. Tracks include "Take It EZ", "Breaker 1/9", "Soul By The Pound", "Charms Alarm", "Heidi Hoe", "I Used To Love HER", "Resurrection", "Thisisme", "Retrospect For Life" feat Lauryn Hill, "All Night Long" feat Erykah Badu, "GOD" featruing Cee Lo, "High Expectations" and more.

Queensbridge-bred veteran MC Cormega returns with an ambitious twist on the "Best Of" formula, to say the least – one disc featuring classic Cormega, and disc 2 featuring contemporary live funk & R&B crew The Revelations backing Cormega! The Best Of Cormega disc includes "Love Is Love", "Testament", "The Saga", "True Meaning", "Dirty Game", "Verbal Grafitti", "Get Out My Way" and more.

Cypress HillCypress Hill ... CD
Columbia/Ruffhouse, 1991. Used ... $6.99
Cypress Hill's debut masterpiece – one of the biggest and best first albums in 90s hip hop! There's little we can add to the canon when it comes to describing this album's impact, but it's still pretty revelatory. Like other west coast rap heavies of the time, Cypress Hill documents real world street violence with a darkly comic sensibility, redefined usage of the word "blunt" forever more, and simply delivered one of the most influential rap (or rock. . .considering the astonishing crossover success) albums of the decade. "How I Could Just Kill A Man", "Hand On The Pump", "Hole In The Head", "Real Estate", "Stoned Is The Way Of The Walk", "Phunky Feel One", "Pigs", "Latin Lingo", "Something For The Blunted", "Psychobeatbuckdown" and more.

✨✧ Dead PrezLets Get Free ... CD
Loud, 2000. Used ... $4.99
The dawn of millennium classic by Dead Prez – and angry, revolution-minded effort from a period on major label hip hop that sorely lacked such strident players – and if it didn't make any huge waves commercially, that only strengthens its legacy! Sticman & M1 are at the top of their game lyrically, the beats are are exciting to this day, and it all adds up to one of the strongest politically minded hip hop records of its time. Titles include "Wolves", "Hip Hop", "They Schools", "The Pistol", "Discipline", "Enemy Lines", "Mind Sex", "Propaganda", "You'll Find A Way", "Police State", and many more. CD

DeclaimeSouthside Story ... CD
Someothaship/Vinyl Digital, 2015. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A strong return to a more forceful rhyme style for Declaime – still with the funk-steeped beats and hazy mood that's more prominent in his recordings as Dudley Perkins – and it's nice to have him back in a straighter hip hop mode for a minute! It's strong stuff, and if you dug his Stones Throw recordings and haven't kept with his twists and turns over the years – which are well worth exploring by the way – here's an solid point to jump back in, or check him out for the first time if you're unitiated. Includes ""Surenos", "The Message 2014" feat Ms One, "Holly", "Samsara", "Fonkinhabitform", "Concentration" and "Flys Eye" feat Georgia Anne Muldrow, "No Mas Mayate", "War Sucks Like Hell", "GOAT" and God's Watch".

✨✧ Divine StylerWordpower 2: Directrix (DTX pressing) ... CD
DTX, 2000. Used ... $3.99
This is the original, independently released version of Divine Styler's third LP, which was licensed to MoWax, but is now out of print either way. As always, the Styler unleashes his sharp, intellectual rhymes in a complex vernacular, following up on the promise of the original Word Power LP, without the weird excursions he'd dabbled in on Spiral Walls, with a nanotech approach for the new millenium. 19 cuts in all, including "Satan Dynasty Killer", "Triple Irons", "One Self Duel", "Before Mecca", "Directrix", "Nova" and "Make It Plain".

DomingoDomingo Presents Behind The Doors Of The 13th Floor ... LP
Honcho Mogul, 1999. Near Mint- 2LP ... $1.99
Collection of 12 tracks produced by Domingo. A couple of nice posse cuts anchor the LP – "Line of Fire" featuring KRS, MC Shan, God Suns, Ras Kass, FT, Bamboo, Feell-X, Sinz of Realty (so we're guessing the KRS-Shan feud is finally past) and "Got You Too Hot" with Ras Kass, Hurricane G, Diesel Don. What separates this one from some of the other recent underground all-star compilations is that the whole 'very serious underground' feel doesn't way this one down. Other standout tracks include Feel X & Eminem "Hustlers and Hardcore", Bamboo "Not the Ones To Sleep", Sins of Reality "Sins of Reality" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die 2 ... LP
Linear Labs, 2015. New Copy ... $21.99 24.98
A superior sequel to Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge's Twelve Reasons To Die saga – cementing the mid teens Ghostface creative resurgence in a major way – with some of the finest production work by Younge to date! It's a stunning reminder of how sharp Ghostface can be this late in the game when he's really feeling it, and he's a gracious host here, too – collaborating with Raekwon on the mic throughout the record, even featuring some moody narration by RZA – and seriously impressive guest appearances by Scarab, Lyrics Born, Chino XL and Bilal. There's a real mythology to the project, with a loose, but genuinely compelling narrative arc – combining prime Wu school crime noir rhymes and soundtrack funk production inspired by giallo, Blacksploitation and Younge's own distinct genius. Includes "Powerful One", "Daily News", "Return Of The Savage" with Raekwon & RZA, ,"Death's Invitation" with Scarab, Lyrics Born and Chino XL, "King Of New York", "Let The Record Spin" and "Blackout" with Raekwon, "Resurrection Morning" with Raekwon and Bilal and "Life's A Rebirth" with RZA.

Gift Of GabFourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up ... CD
Quannum, 2004. Used ... $1.99
A very nice solo set from Blackalicious MC Gift Of Gab – one that combines the fast, playful wordplay of Blackalicious with a more heartfelt soul style, kind of like Relativity era Common. It's a much more focused set than Blackalicious's Blazing Arrow LP – and possibly one of the best realized LPs we've ever heard on the Quannum label. The set was produced entirely by two hungry producers from the Northwest – Jake One and Vitamin D – and they provide a solid backbeat for Gab to work with. Very solid stuff – and we surely appreciate the consistency! Includes "Stardust", "Rat Race", "To Know You", "Hold On", "In A Minute Doe", "Ride On", "Just Because", "Way Of The Light", "Moonshine", "Flashback", "The Writz", and some more. CD

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die ... LP
Linear Labs, 2013. New Copy ... About August 7, 2015
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this most intriguing artist and producer/composer collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more.

Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. The instrumentals version is even more explicit in it's debt to giallo – with all titles translated to Italian: "Attenzione Al Stare", "L'Aumento Dell'Abito Nero", "Dichiaro Guerra", "Sangue Sull'Acciottolato", "Una Chiamata Inattesa", "Il Corpo Sicuro", "Dodici Ragioni Per Morire" and more.
