✨✧ DJ Jazzy JeffReturn Of The Magnificent ... CD
BBE/Rapster (UK), 2007. Used ... $5.99
DJ Jazzy Jeff returns – with a top shelf roster or MCs doing justice to his Philly soul reared, bedrock beatcraft – including Big Daddy Kane, Method Man, Rhymefest, Jean Grae, Kardinall Offishall, CL Smooth, Pos of De La Soul and more – underground spitters and mic icons alike! We don't know if Jazz tailors his beats for the chosen MCs – or if he seeks out the appropriate MCs for his ready-made material – but whatever his methods, they're still working well. Return Of The Magnificent is a standard bearing effort! Titles include "Hip Hop" feat Twone Gabz, "Let Me Hear U Clap" feat Pos from De La Soul, "Run That Back" feat Eshon Burgundy & Black Ice, "Jeff N Fess" feat Rhymefest, "Practice" feat J Live, "Supa Jean" feat Jean Grae, "The Garden" feat Big Daddy Kane, "Hold It Down" feat Method Man, "My Soul Ain't For Sale" feat Raheem DeVaugh, "Cone On feat Dave Ghetto, "Brand New Funk 2K7" feat Peedi Peedi and more1 CD

Earl SweatshirtI Don't Like S**t, I Don't Go Outside ... CD
Columbia, 2015. Used ... $7.99
Another brilliant window into the odd, honest mind of Earl Sweatshirt – a disfunctional outcast who doesn't even need to leave the house to be one the realest, most distinctive hip hop voices of his time. As much as we admired the Doris album, we didn't know where else he could take things, but Earl raises the creative bar here – murky, moody beats and mesmerizing stream of conciousness state-of-mind rhymes. Pretty incredible to have a record like this on a major label in 2015! Titles include "Huey", "Mantra", "Faucet", "Grief", "Off Top", "Grown Ups", "AM // Radio", "Inside", "DNA" and "Wool". CD

✨✧ Jurassic 5Quality Control ... CD
Interscope, 2000. Used ... $2.99
The album that catapulted Jurassic 5 from the underground! Quality Control is one of the great hip hop albums, a record that's filled with great tracks, yet flows along as the ultimate headphones experience. The rhymes by Zaakir, Chali 2na, Akil, and Marc 7even are top notch in group dynamics and the solo shots, and the record has some of the best production Cut Chemist & Nu-Mark ever put down. Tracks include "How We Get Along", "Contact", "Quality Control", "World Of Entertainment (Woe Is Me)", "The Influence", "Monkey Bars", "Quality Control", "Twelve", "Contribution", "The Game", "Improvise", "Swing Set", "Jurass Finish First", and more.

LatyrxAlbum ... CD
Quannum/Solesides, 1997. Used ... $2.99
A great reissue of the waaaay overlooked Latyrx LP from '97. Lateef & Lyrics Born pretty much laid the groundwork for what was going to be some of the most adventurous underground hip hop to come out of Cali in the mid-to-late 90s – opening the door for Blackalicious, the J5 and others. DJ Shadow's great production on several of the best cuts is some of his punchiest work, and Blackalicious's Chief Xcel is at his peak on a few of the others. Lyrics Born's production work doesn't come near the above mentioned maestros (his rhymes, on the other hand, are indeed top notch, in a freaky Pharoahe Monche kinda way) making the whole a bit uneven, but don't let that stop you. This is essential underground hip hop, an LP we're thrilled to see get a high quality official reissue! Cuts include ""Latyrx", "The Quickening", "Balcony Beach", "Funky Granules", "Bad News", "Burnt Pride" and more. CD
