Too ShortLife Is...Too Short ... CD
BMG/RCA, 1988. Used ... $5.99
Too Short's follow up to Born To Mack, with the same raw, stripped down Bay Area vibe. It's too bad that gangsta, pimp and street rhymes have gone on to become such a cliche, but when we hear these early classics, we're reminded of how fresh this stuff was at the time. Still sounds great today, too. Includes"Life Is Too Short", "I Ain't Trippin", "Nobody Does It Better", "Cuss Words", "City Of Dope", "Don't Fight The Feelin", "Rhymes" and "Pimp The Ho". CD

✨✧ Danger DoomMouse And The Mask (10th anniversary edition) ... CD
Lex, 2005. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 16.98
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! 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 sort of a 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. CD
Also available Mouse And The Mask (10th anniversary edition) ... LP 28.99

Fat BoysFat Boys ... LP
Sutra, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
The Kurtis Blow-produced debut album by The Fat Boys! We'll say it: respect is due to The Fat Boys – novelty status, fat comedy cliches and Disorderlies aside. If you're a child of the early 80s, there's a reasonable chance The Fat Boys were the first rap group you ever heard – and that alone makes them no joke if you ask us. Another thing: the best of their cuts are pretty damn nice and hold up as well some of the best rap circa '84 – and this debut album indeed features some of their best cuts. Includes "Stick 'Em", "Fat Boys", "The Place To Be", "Human Beat Box", "Can You Feel It?", "Don't You Dog Me" & "Jailhouse Rap". LP, Vinyl record album

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.99
The classic soundtrack to Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing – lead, of course, by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" – and beyond that is a pretty wonderful, and not always as intense cross-section of some of the finer urban soul and New Jack Swing, circa '89, breezy vocal-centric R&B, a touch of Latin and Afro-Carribbean pop. The Bed-Stuy melting pot bubbles over to tragic consequences in the film, but the diverse soundtrack is plenty harmonious, and sounds fresh to this day. Includes "My Fantasy" by Teddy Riley featuring Guy, "Never Explain Love" by Al Jarreau, "Party Hearty" by EU, "Tu Y Yo" by Ruben Blades, "Can't Stand It" by Steel Pulse and "Don't Shoot Me" by Take 6. LP, Vinyl record album
