Big LLifestylez Of Da Poor & Dangerous ... LP
Columbia/Traffic, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
The classic first solo album by Big L – with bedrock DITC production by Buckwild, Showbiz and Lord Finesse – perfectly framing the rhymes by Harlem's finest. Big L didn't leave a huge wealth of recordings before he was taking away from the world, but he started out strong, and this benchmark effort makes a pretty solid testament to his legacy. Alongside some of the period QB hip hop, this one is pretty close to the pinnacle of streetwise east coast 90s hip hop. 12 tracks in all: "Put It On", "MVP", "No Endz, No Skinz", "8 Iz Enuff", "All Black", "Danger Zone", "Street Struck", "Da Graveyard", "Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous", "I Don't Understand It, "Fed Up Wit The Bullsh#t", and "Let 'Em Have It L".

Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded (2LP edition with bonus track) ... LP
B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
One of the best debuts in the history of hip hop – and one of the most important albums the genre ever produced! Criminal Minded is landmark for a number of reasons. Among the biggest is, of course, that it was recorded with the late great DJ Scott La Rock – and he was soon to fall prey to the very street violence that BDP documented with such raw brilliance, courtesy the lyricism and delivery of KRS-One. Importance aside, though, Criminal Minded is simply a great, timeless record that no true fan of gritty classic hip hop should be without. The track list alone is a full chapter in the hip hop book of legends – with tunes like "Poetry", "Elementary", "South Bronx", "Super-Hoe", "Bridge is Over", and the "P is Free" remix. Also includes "Criminal Minded", "Dope Beat", and "9mm Goes Bang". LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Rock & CL SmoothAll Souled Out EP (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. Used ... $8.99
The first EP by Pete Rock & CL Smooth – and one of the greatest debut EPs in hip hop history – fleshed out here with bonus mixes and instrumentals! The original EP material is as stunning as ever, really showing the Pete & CL were in near peak form right outta gate – setting up the signature Pete Rock's signature jazz and soul sample mastery, perfectly suited to CL's brilliant, though laidback MC skills. An essential little set, and the perfect set up for the epic first LP to come! EP tracks include "Good Life" (plus the Group Home remix), "Mecca & The Soul Brother", "Go With The flow", "The Creator" and "All Souled Out". This nice 2014 version on Traffic includes the bonus versions "The Creator (Slide To Slide Mix)", "The Creator (Surfboard Mix)" and instrumental version, plus "Mecca & The Soul Brother (Wig Out Mix)" and instrumental.

Pete Rock & CL SmoothMecca & The Soul Brother (deluxe edition 2CD box set plus full sized poster) ... CD
Sony/Traffic, 1992. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
The debut full length from Pete Rock & CL Smooth – and a bonafide hip hop classic if there ever was one – one of the best ever! Pete Rock's trademark mix of heavy soul, jazz & funk beatcraft pretty much set the bar to a level that's been impossible to top ever sense. On top of being a front-to-back perfect album, Mecca & The Soul Brother has one of the great singles of the era, in "They Reminisce Over You (TROY)". What more can be said, really? An absolute essential! Disc 1 includes the original full length album. Titles include "Return Of The Mecca", "For Pete's Sake", "Ghettos Of The Mind", "Soul Brother #1", "Wig Out", "Anger Of The Nation", "Can't Front On Me", "The Basement" feat Heavy D, Rob-O, Grap & Dida, "If It Ain't Rough, It Ain't Right", "Skinz" feat Grand Puba and more. 16 tracks in all. Disc 2 features a wealth of bonus tracks, including 12" versions, remixes, acapellas, instrumentals and exclusives, including "It's Not A Game (Original 12" Version)", "Lots Of Lovin (Remix)" "They Reminisce Over You (TROY)" (Remix, Vibes Mix, and Instrumental versions), "Straighten It Out (Instrumental Version)". 15 tracks of bonus material!

✨✧ Del Tha Funkee HomosapienI Wish My Brother George Was Here (2 LP version) ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. Used 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The loopy West Coast classic! Del's first LP is still a hip hop holy grail, and it's nicely steeped in a P-Funk 70s party vibe. Del's style was and still is inimitable, even if Ice Cube's production is a little too L.A. '89 – and "Mistadobolina" and "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo" are every bit as classic as, I don't know, let's say Gone With The Wind! Other tracks 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.

✨✧ Souls Of Mischief93 'Til Infinity (2LP pressing) ... LP
Hiero Imperium/Traffic, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The timeless classic Cali hip hop standard bearer from Souls Of Mischief – on 2LP vinyl! As much as we love all the best Hiero output of the 90s & beyond, this is still our favorite, and besides, it's pretty much the blueprint for the Hieroglyphics sound. Smoothly jazz and headnodding boom bap production at its finest – along with some of the finest ensemble rapping of the era, this one goes straight up on the top shelf. 14 tracks: "That's When Ya Lost", "Let Em Know", "Live & Let Live", "Make Your Mind Up", "A Name I Call Myself", "Disseshowedo", "What A Way To Go Out", "Never No More", "93 Til Infinity", "Limitations", "Anything Can Happen", "Make Your Mind Up", "Batting Practice", "Tell Me Who Profits" and "Outro".. LP, Vinyl record album
