Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, concise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, toughest, street conscious hip hop to come. It's a unique snapshot of the time, too, coming at the crossroads of hip hop's rise from the 80s streets to the mainstream, with KRS One standing for realness right there at the brink. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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.

Danger DoomMouse And The Mask (Metalface Version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lex, 2005. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
You guessed it. Danger Mouse and MF Doom together – and also a collaboration with the writers and voice talent of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming circa the mid 00s – so the dangerous duo make room for appearances by Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Brak, Zorak, Harvey Birdman, the Sealab 2021 team and the Mooninites – plus live action characters Ghostface, Talib Kweli and Cee-Lo. Basically, you can look at the project as a crass, college age market research driven coup and an affront to classic hip hop – OR you can look at it as sorta less pretentious Gorillaz. We're rollin with the latter, and it's a helluva lot more fun, too!! DM's and Doom's styles compliment each other as well as Doom's and Madlib's – and the participation of Adult Swim makes this one of the few hip hop albums in which you actually look forward to the skits! One question, though. Where is Schoolly D? Tracks include "Sofa King", "ATHF", Mince Meat", "Old School" feat Talib Kweli, "Bizzy Box" feat Cee-Lo, "Space Hos" and more. Includes bonus tracks from the Occult Hymn EP and 2 unreleased tracks. 23 tracks in all! CD

Del Tha Funkee HomosapienI Wish My Brother George Was Here ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The loopy West Coast classic! Heavily steeped in the P-Funk party vibe, Del's first LP is still a hip hop holy grail. Ice Cube's production is a nice snapshot of west coast hip hop circa '89, and Del's style is inimitable. Standouts Mistadobolina" and "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo" are unimpeachable leftfield classics – but the whole record's great! Other titles include "What Is A Booty", "The Wacky World Of Rapid Transit", "P*ssin On Your Steps", "Money For Sex", "Dr. Bombay", "Sunny Meadowz", "Sleepin On My Couch", "Hoodz Come In Dozens", "Same Ol Thing", "Ya Lil' Crumbsnatchers", and more.. 2012 edition features extended packaging and foldout poster of the original cover art.

DJ ShadowEndtroducing (3CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Island, 1996. New Copy 3 CDs ... $29.99 49.98
Massive 20th Anniversary edition of DJ Shadow's masterpiece! It seems like when this came out, critics and even DJs liked to drop the then new moniker "trip hop" whenever possible, and this pivotal album is held up as the watershed mark. A number of years down the line, Endtroducing holds up stands the test of time as an instrumental hip hop LP, and even sort of an avant rock album – giving it a timeless feel that obliterates any trendy pigeonholes! Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod (though some of us were hip to him all along) and Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveler in the coloristic approach he uses – and never forgets the funk! This great 3CD edition includes the classic original album on Disc One – with "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World" – the bonus album Excessive Ephemera on Disc Two – and the all new (circa 2016) remix album Endtroducing Re-Emagined on Disc Three – with remixes by Adrian Younge, Lee Bannon,. Hudson Mohawke, Daedelus and others! CD

Get On Down, 1996. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... $66.99 74.98
Genius from the mind of Kool Keith aka Big Willie Smith aka Poppa Large aka Dr. Octagon – with some of the greatest production ever by Dan The Automator and scratch work by DJ Q-Bert – a serious creative peak for all parties, and up there in the all time greatest hip hop full lengths of all time! Since his days with Ultramagnetics, no one has mastered the abstract lyrical style like Kool Keith, self-proclaimed inventor of all rhyme styles, and he's at an inarguable high point on this timeless classic with dope atmospheric features by the Automator and scratches by the legendary Q-Bert! This one was certainly ripe for a legacy worthy box set treatment and gets that and more here – featuring all 20 tracks from the Dreamworks version – plus 9 classic level remixes circa 1997 & 2016, plus 3 never before released tracks – in a hexagon-shaped box with a 40 page booklet with notes by Brian Coleman.

Dungeon FamilyEven In Darkness ... LP
Arista, 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 25.98
A loose, surprisingly enduring set of tracks from the Outkast-Goodie Mobb-Organized Noize collective circa early 00s! Even In Darkness stands the test of time extra well thanks not only to the the cream of the ATL's hip hop world of the time delivering the goods, but also for being heavily-steeped in Late 70s Funkadelic inspiration. 14 proper tracks, plus intro & outro – including "Crooked Booty", "Follow The Light", the nice nod to Kraftwerk "Trans DF Express", "On & On & On", "Emergency", "Forever Pimpin' (Never Slippin')", "6 Minutes", "White Gutz", "Rollin", "They Comin", "Excalibur", "What Iz Rap?" and "Curtains".

Kendrick LamarDAMN. ... CD
Aftermath/Interscope, 2017. Used ... $10.99
DAMN!, indeed – Kendrick has yet to take even a small step down from the creative peak he's been riding for years – and takes another daring step forward with this strong, strident, no-mess-taking classic in the making! The surprise-announced DAMN! finds him taking on timely concerns – some longtime inherent to everyday racial, social, and class struggles in American life, and others that are purely personal. The production is diverse to a degree, but a bit straight forward compared to the sprawling, years-in-the-making To Pimp A Butterfly – all by design, as DAMN! is clearly made to sound fresh and urgent right now. But like all great musical art, it's built to stand the test of time. Includes guest producers, musicians and vocalists as varied as Thundercat, U2, Kamasi Washington, Kid Capri and Rihanna. Titles include "BLOOD.", "DNA.", "YAH.", "ELEMENT.", "LOYALTY." feat Rihanna, "PRIDE.", "LUST." with strings arranged by Kamasi Washington, "XXX." feat U2, "FEAR.", "GOD." and "DUCKWORTH." CD
