✨✧ CommonUniversal Mind Control ... CD
Geffen, 2008. Used ... $1.99
Common's easygoing Universal Mind Control – a record that by design doesn't cut as deep soulfully and emotionally as the previous couple of LPs – this one's spun for a slick synth heavy party rocking vibe by the Neptunes! The record was originally titled Invincible Summer and was set to drop for the open top season, later retooled a little for an icey club bounce, with several standout cuts – a couple funky numbers produced by Mr DJ of the Dungeon Family. Guests include Kanye, Cee-Lo, Martina Topley-Bird and Musinah. It's an efficient set, too, with 10 tracks: "Universal Mind Control", "Punch Drunk Love" feat Kanye West, "Make My Day" feat Cee-Lo, "Announcement" feat Pharrell, "Gladiator", "Inhale", "Everywhere" feat Martina Topley-Bird, "Changes" feat Musinhah and more.

MCA, 2002. Used ... $1.99
Your favorite DJ savior returns, after an extended absence, with another mindnumbing full length exercise in future hip hop. 10 instrumental excursions into the world of Josh Davis (with a few extra interludes, of course), and as you might expect, the drum programming is top rate, intricate and detailed, with nice moody atmospherics and a few well chosen vocal bits laid over top for a great cinematic feel.

FinaleOdds & Ends ... CD
Mello Music Group, 2015. Used ... $8.99
Sharp, no nonsense, tough independent hip hop from Detroit's Finale – his first record in a few years, and he's back with sense of urgency and a skillful flow! Produced by Oddisee, who brings hard-hitting beats and a loud, direct sound – as fine a foil for the rhymes as Finale could ask for – with some top notch guest appearances by Chicago favorite Thaione Davis, Bilal Salaam, Kenn Starr & Hassaan Mackey, Homeboy Sandman & Miz Korona and others. Includes "Cut Day", "Just Due" with Homeboy Sandman & Miz Korona, ""Steep Climb" with Thaione Davis, "7 Days" feat Kenn Starr & Hassaan Mackey, "Spike The Punch", "Hard To Kill", "The Revival" feat Invincible & Pierre Anthony and more.

Ghostface Killah & Apollo BrownTwelve Reasons To Die – The Brown Tape ... CD
Soul Temple, 2013. Used ... $6.99
Ghostface Killah's hip hop crime noir Twelve Reasons To Die – as alternately produced by Apollo Brown! The original version pairs Ghostface's top notch rhymes with cinematic funky soul producer extraordinaire Adrian Younge and Venice Dawn – and The Brown Tape is a companion piece produced by Apollo Brown – who was given the acapellas and left to his on always creative devices. In mood and tone, it's on level playing field as the main album – a bit tighter and paired down to the gritty funk essentials. Totally top notch – a worthy companion piece to so the least – pretty close to its equal! Includes "Beware Of The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "Declare War" feat Masta Killa, "Center OF Attraction" with Cappadonna, "An Unexpected Call" with Inspectah Deck, "Revenge Is Sweet" with Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "The Sureshot (Parts 1 & 2)" and more. The main track list followed by the complete instrumentals! CD
