✨✧ Boogie Down ProductionsSouth Bronx Teachings – A Collection Of Boogie Down Productions ... CD
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. Includes "Poetry", "South Bronx", "9MM Goes Blang", "Word From Our Sponsor", "Elementary", "Advance", "D-Nice Rocks The House", "The Bridge Is Over", "Criminal Minded", and "P Is Free (rmx)". CD
(Spine has a small cutout notch.)

Del The Funky HomosapienNo Need For Alarm ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Just-IceBack To The Old School ... CD
Fresh/Traffic, 1986. Used ... $7.99
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

✨✧ KMDMr Hood (remastered edition) ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. Used ... $7.99
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

Leaders Of The New SchoolFuture Without A Past ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99
The amazing debut of those most hyperactive of the Native Tongues, the short-lived, ultra fresh Leaders Of The New School! Busta & Co. splintered apart after just two albums, but this will always be a shiny trophy in the mantle with the all time freshest East Coast hip hop. It sounds great to this day, particularly those Eric "Vietnam" Sadler cuts. Tracks include "Case Of The P.T.A.", "Too Much On My Mind", "What's The Pinocchio Theory?", "Sobb Story", "Sound Of The Zeekers @#^**?!", "Feminine Fatt", "Transformers", "Show Me A Hero", "Trains, Planes & Automobiles", "Teachers, Don't Teach Us Nonsense!", "My Ding-A-Ling", and "Where Do We Go From Here?".

B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most important albums in the history of hip hop – the first full LP from KRS One and Boogie Down Productions, and a landmark batch of tracks recorded with the late Scott La Rock! 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. Other tracks include "Criminal Minded", "Dope Beat", and "9MM Goes Bang".

✨✧ KMDMr Hood ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1994. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Finally back on wax, and pressed up on double vinyl to boot! Pre-MF Doom/Metal Fingers, et al, classic from then-Zev Love X and DJ Sub Roc. The last chance before everybody had to be hardcore. Humor, knowledge and pure niceness, on par with the first De La album, though it never broke as huge. A whole other side of the man who'd become Metal Face, before the tragic loss of Sub Roc and subsequently strident and once lost but now widely available LP Black Bastards, this was 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".

✨✧ Ultimate ForceI'm Not Playin' (2CD special edition) ... CD
Strong City/Traffic, 1990. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The incredibly dope and funky dawn of the 90s work by Ultimate Force, aka DJ Diamond D & MC Master Rob – featuring early production greatness from Diamond, with a little help from Jazzy Jay – a lost classic that's only now seeing official light of day! Diamond D took off as a solo force before a deal could be solidified for the release of a full length UF album – and it's a real gift to true school hip hop heads to have this in our hands nearly two decades later. If you dig the early classic production aesthetic of Diamond D and the hard hitting DITC vibe, or have any kind of an ear for golden age NYC hip hop, you MUST own this CD! We've been up on the duo's handful of 12"s for years, but we really only had an inkling of the strength of the complete portrait! The double disc special edition includes the album versions, instrumentals and acapellas for the tracks "Another Hit", "C'Mon" & "Oh S**t" (featuring a fresh-faced teenager named Fat Joe), "I Gotta Go", "I'm In Effect", "I'm Not Playing", "One Of The All Time Greats", "Revolution Of The Mind", "Smooth As Suede", "Supreme Diamond D" and "Tuf (So Damn)" – plus additional liner notes by Brian "Rakim Told Me" Coleman.

✨✧ Del Tha Funkee HomosapienI Wish My Brother George Was Here ... LP
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded ... CD
B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
(2014 remastered edition.)

✨✧ WhodiniWhodini (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Jive/Arista/Traffic, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
(Comes in a great LP style sleeve!)
