Big NoydEpisodes Of A Hustla ... CD
Tommy Boy/Traffic, 1996. Used ... $5.99
Tough mid 90s Queensbridge street hop from Big Noyd – much of which is produced Havoc of Mobb Deep – plus Stretch Armstrong and Charlemagne. Prodigy rhymes on the record, too, but the record as a whole really does belong to Big Noyd's skillful rhymes and no-flinch ing street storytelling. Includes "Recognize & Realize" (pts. 1 & 2), "All Pro", "Infamous Mobb", "It's On You" and "Usual Suspect", "Episodes Of A Hustla" and more. This 2011 edition from Traffic puts this one back in print for the first time in 15 years. CD

✨✧ Biz MarkieBiz Never Sleeps (special edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cold Chillin/Traffic, 1989. Used ... $2.99
Biz's second LP from 1989 – what can we tell you about the Biz that you don't already know? As far as we're concerned there are a lot of MCs that could still learn a lesson or two from the Biz, and producers too! Good time mid school hip hop, with nice sample based production and a great sense of humor, that makes us nostalgic for the late 80s early 90s glory days. 13 tracks in all, with the cuts "Spring Again", "Just A Friend", "A Thing Named Kim", "The Dragon", "Things Get A Little Easier", "I Hear Music", "Biz In Harmony", "Check It Out" and more. This 2012 special edition includes 5 bonus 12" versions: "Just A Friend (12" Version)", "Just A Friend (Instrumental)", "Spring Again (Club Mix)", "Spring Again (12" Remix)" and "Spring Again (Dub)".

Traffic/B-Boy, Late 80s. Used ... $1.99
A selection of late 80s South Bronx Teachings – classic Boogie Down Productions circa Criminal Minded! South Bronx Teachings focuses soundly on the class of '87 – so you get fistful of the Criminal Minded cuts and a few other blasts from KRS-One & Scott La Rock, nicely paced over 13 tracks.

Del The Funky HomosapienNo Need For Alarm ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. Used ... $5.99
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initally underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! Whereas I Wish My Brother George Was Here was sort of the loopy, semi-comical cousin to the tonally heavier G-Funk sound, No Need For Alarm has a tighter, somewhat little harder hitting sound – more akin to the jazzy Hiero beats you've come to know and love! There are days when we feel like this is our favorite Del LP. Includes "Catch A Bad One", "Wack MCs", "No Need For Alarm", "Boo Boo Heads", "Worldwide", "No More Worries", "Wrong Place", "In & Out" and "Miles To Go". CD

Cold Chillin/Traffic, 1988. Used ... $6.99
The Juice Crew at it's best with Marley Marl twisting the knobs – the lCold Chillin classic from MC Shan! Born To Be Wild is the middle effort in a trio of great, and at this point underappreciated album MC Shan cut for Cold Chillin, leaving a pretty solid legacy if strong mid 80s rap with dynamite Marley Marl production! The CD was out of print for almost 20 years before this remastered reissue, with titles including "We Used To Do It Out In The Park", "Juice Crew Law", "I Pioneered This", "She's Gone", "Words Of A Freestyle", "Never Rock A Party" and more – plus bonus original 12" vocal mixes of "I Pioneered This", "Juice Crew Law" and "They Used To Do It In The Park", the original 12" dub of "Juice Crew Law" and the original 12" acapella of "I Pioneered This".

WhodiniWhodini (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Jive/Arista/Traffic, 1983. Used ... $4.99
Benchmark early 80s NYC rap from Whodini! Everyone knows the name Whodini and we have some fun old school rap video show memories, but the group doesn't really get its props in the way others of their generation enjoy. It's never too late! This is fresh album worth copping. Includes "The Haunted House Of Rock" – the extended version, the vocoder version and "Haunted" mix – plus "Magic's Wand" (plus extended mix) "Nasty Lady", "Underground", "Rap Machine" and "It's All In Mr Magic's Wand". A classic! CD

Just-IceBack To The Old School ... CD
Fresh/Traffic, 1986. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The classic first (and hardest to find) Just-Ice LP – finally back in print. The album was officially produced by Mantronik, although we always thought that Just-Ice also had a hand in the production, since the sound is harder and slower than the other early Mantronik productions. The record features beatboxing by the "Human DMX" and the classics "Back To The Old School", "Gangster of Hip Hop", "Latoya", and "Put That Record Back On." The picture cover is a dope notebook style grafitti drawing of Just-Ice, DMX, Latoya and Mantronik – who's carrying a Roland 909! CD

✨✧ King SunXL (special edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Profile/Traffic, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tough, righteous rap from King Sun – 1989's XL – a set that still looms large after all these years! King Sun dropped knowledge from a Five Percenter influence with a flow that's as smooth, solid and authoritive as any Bronx rapper of the day – and the production by Sun Born sounds great to this this day. This one was out of print for far too long! Includes "Hey Love", which uses the "Moments In Love" sample by Art Of Noise, and is standout produced by Cut Master DC. Also includes "Lethal Weapon", 'Ft Tape", "It's A Heat Up" and "Time To Go". This long-awaited Traffic remastered edition includes the earlier single cuts "Mythological Rapper" and "Christmas In The City" – both on CD for the first time. CD

✨✧ KMDMr Hood (remastered edition) ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pre-MF Doom/Metal Fingers, et al, classic material from then-Zev Love X and DJ Sub Roc! The Mr Hood LP's original release year of '91 in retrospect seems like the last chance eccentric crews had to drop a leftfield classic before everybody had to be hardcore – and this certainly is a classic! Humor, knowledge and pure niceness on par with the first De La album, though it never broke out nearly as huge. KMD also offered a wild, whole other side of the man who'd become Metal Face, before the tragic loss of Sub Roc. Along with the subsequently strident and once lost Black Bastards LP, this is one of the highwater marks in hip hop. Essential listening! Features "Peachfuzz", "Nitty Gritty" with Brand Nubian, "Humrush", "Figure Of Speech", "Trial 'N Error", "Soulflexin", "Gasface Refill" and the hilarious "Mr Hood At Piocalles Jewelry/Crackpot". CD

✨✧ Lord FinesseReturn Of The Funky Man ... CD
Giant/Traffic, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We know we spend a lot of space on these pages propping up early 90s hip hop, but you have to admit it was the salad days of the east coast. Finesse's second LP's no exception, with tight lyrics and beats – keeping it real before it became a cliche – a DITC classic that we never grow tired of, and has been far to hard to get a hold of on vinyl for year! Timeless production that lives up to the title by Showbiz, Diamond D and Finesse. Tracks include "Party Over Here", "Yes You May", "Return Of The Funky Man", "Fat For The 90s", "Stop Sweating The Next Man", "That's How Smooth I Am", "Praise The Lord", "I Like My Girls With A Boom", "Hey Look At Shorty", "Isn't He Something" and "Funky On The Fast Tip".

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.
