Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded ... CD
B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
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". CD

Del Tha Funkee HomosapienI Wish My Brother George Was Here ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The loopy West Coast classic! Heavily steeped in the P-Funk party vibe, Del's first LP is still a hip hop holy grail. Ice Cube's production is a nice snapshot of west coast hip hop circa '89, and Del's style is inimitable. Standouts Mistadobolina" and "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo" are unimpeachable leftfield classics – but the whole record's great! Other titles 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.. 2012 edition features extended packaging and foldout poster of the original cover art.

Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Kid Koala, and Dan The Automator pool their skills for this dawn of the 2000s sci-fi hip hop classic – the masterful Deltron 3030!

✨✧ Souls Of Mischief93 'Til Infinity (2LP pressing) ... LP
Hiero Imperium/Traffic, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... 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"..

✨✧ Big LLifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous ... LP
Columbia/Traffic, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ EdanEcho Party (limited edition vinyl w/ white sleeve and the art stamped or stenciled by Edan) ... LP
Five Day Weekend, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
The most tripped out funky sample and live instrumental material ever from Edan – old school rap and funk samples with Edan's own mad genius manipulations as well as a number of instruments he had at the ready! The Echo Party is a project that began life as mix set in which Edan had access to the vast back catalog of hip hop and funk reissues and newer original material under the far reaching umbrella of Traffic Entertainment, but Edan didn't stop there, kids. His wild imagination makes a dizzying psychedelic hip hop funk experience out of those materials, and he layers his own elements into it – from synthesizers, to guitar, oddball percussion flourishes and more – breaking up and reattaching particles, adding some echo, flipping the sounds to reverse play and back again, and crafting an all around wild ride that doesn't compromise the funk or the boom bap. One half hour long jam! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition vinyl comes in a white sleeve w/ the art stamped or stenciled by Edan – each copy is unique and will vary from the image.)
