Too ShortLife Is...Too Short (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BMG/RCA, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
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".

Alchemist & Oh No (Gangrene)Vodka & Ayahuasca ... LP
Decon, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Damn! Alchemist & Oh No's debut as Gangrene was no fluke, seeing as this second dose is even better than the first! This is psychedelic underground hip hop soundscapes paired with no nonsense rhymes – and that style works incredibly well for these dudes. This one's gonna be standing proudly with some of the better indie hip hop albums circa '12. Includes "Gladiator Music" feat Kool G Rap, "Flamethrowers", "Auralac Gabs", "Vodka & Ayahuasca", "Dump Truck" feat Prodigy, "Duework", "Odds Cracked", "Dark Shades" feat Evidence & Roc C, "Livers For Sale" and more.

Danger DoomMouse And The Mask (10th anniversary edition) ... LP
Lex, 2005. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99 30.98
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, so the 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. LP, Vinyl record album
(10th Anniversary edition with new, pretty great cover art – looking like a psychedelic ink blot test!)

Handsome Boy Modeling SchoolWhite People ... CD
Atlantic, 2004. Used ... $3.99
Just when you thought Prince Paul and Cat Power would never make a record together PRESTO – it's the new Handsome Boy album! HBMS takes a bit more of a chillout tack with this long overdue second opus – with lots of laidback beats and samples, and a surprising amount of live instrumentation! The gleeful, sarcastic comedy of the stellar first album remains intact, with some genuinely amusing skits (including one with Jay Z appearing under the pseudonym Hines Buchanan), and the deep range of guest vocalists isn't as surprising as how strong their work is in the best tunes. It would have been pretty easy for Prince Paul and Automator to find a bunch of interesting names to flesh out their big pop culture frappe, but something else altogether to make trippy hip hop tracks featuring Cat Power and the Hieroglyphics make sense on the same record. A pretty solid set from the most adventurous pseudo duo in the game! Guests include Del The Funky Homosapien, De La Soul, RZA, Lord Finesse, AG, Rahzel, Jazzy Jay, Qbert, Mike Patton, Casual, Hieroglyphics, Grand Wizard Theodore, El-P, John Oates, Pharrell, Kid Koala, and George W. Bush (just kidding). Tracks include "If It Wasn't For You" with De La, "Are You Down With It" with Mike Patton, "The World's Gone Mad" with Del and others, "It's Like That" with Casual, "I've Been Thinking" with Cat Power, "Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) Pt 2" featuring Lord Finesse, Qbert and others, First. . .And Then" featuring Dres from Black Ship, "A Day In The Life" featuring RZA, AZ and others and more, plus intro/outro by Father Guido Sarducci.

K-DefUnpredictable Gemini/Way It Was ... CD
Redefinition, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
A pair of K-Def LPs – 2016's Unpredectible Gemini and the compilation Way It Was – together in a single set! Gemini is funk steeped instrumental hip hop – with an ear for and the skill to recreate not only the soul beat sound of classic, so called "golden era" hip hop, but with inspiration that stretches back even further to the cinematic soul sound of the 70s – all the while with an evolving style that's fully relevant post-millenium. Timeless stuff! Includes "A Threat To Society", "Creeping Out", "A Message From The Biz", "Lean Wit' Me", "My Funky Soul Experience", "Syncopated Funk", "Sounds Like...But It's Not", "Day Before The Storm", "Shakin' Off The Haters", "Untouchable Funk Lesson", "Reminiscent Of The Golden Era", "Gotta Get Away" with Damu The Fudgemunk & AG and more. Way It Was is rarities and unheard tracks from the K-Def vaults – plus a handful of new/current cuts, circa the mid 20-teens – some vocal and some instro! K-Def is such a timeless soul, the year of origin is honestly of little concern to his craft – it's cohesive all the way – and the titles include "Uneke", "How Nice I Am", "For The Family", "Some Ole Sah B Shh", "Strawberry Lemonade" and more. Guests include Blu and Damu The Fudgemunk. CD

Kendrick LamarTo Pimp A Butterfly ... CD
Interscope, 2015. New Copy ... $17.99 18.98
Kendrick Lamar takes wider creative left turns than ever before on To Pimp A Butterfly – with a funk steeped production style that filters tried-and-true P Funk influences through leftfield modern beatcraft styles, inspired by cats like Madlib to Thundercat, the latter of whom is an official contributor. Fresh material from an increasingly pivotal figure – who may not be revolutionizing the game on the level of the heavy critical praise he's heaped with, but he's certainly marching to his own beat, rather than chasing hits! Includes "Wesley's Theory" with George Clinton & Thundercat, "King Kunta", "These Walls" with Bilal, Anna Wise & Thundercat, "Aright", "For Sale?", "Institutionalized" with a Slick Rick-homage of a guest verse by Snoop Dogg (sign us up for any record that gives props to The Ruler...and extra points for transplanting that style of flow to Compton), "Momma", "Hood Politics", "The Blacker The Berry", "How Much A Dollar Cost" feat James Fauntleroy & Ronald Isley, "Mortal Man" and more.

✨✧ MF DoomSpecial Blends Vol 1 & 2 ... LP
Metal Face, 2004. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99 26.98
Earlier evil genius from MF Doom – finally available on wax! Doom laces his favorite hip hop acapellas with new, original beats by Doom circa the early post-millennium. The package doesn't include a track list – we could tell you, but then we'd have to kill you. But rest assured, the Doomsday sound is in full effect behind vocal tracks from voices you'll recognize. Hot!!! LP, Vinyl record album

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1989. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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.

Special EdI Got It Made (original, businesslike version) ... 7-inch
Profile/Get On Down, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The classic from a young Special Ed – coming out incredibly strong circa '89, with the confidence and charisma of a veteran MC, despite being just 16 years old at the time! "I Got It Made" is benchmark, laidback braggadocio with the skill to back it all up, and funky period beatcraft. The equally great Businesslike mix is on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Great little funky 45 version – in a big hole, mini-replica of the classic Profile logo 12" sleeve!)
