Tuff CrewBack To Wreck Shop (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warlock/Octave (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $18.99
The Tuff Crew burst out of the Philly scene with this overlooked gem from the end of the 80s – an album that may not be top of the history books, but which still has all the raw creative energy of those great indie years before the first big assault on hip hop by the major labels! The ... read more CD

Tuff CrewDanger Zone (with bonus track) ... CD
Octave (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... $18.99
Beat-heavy work from the Tuff Crew – a group who definitely live up to their name on the bottom end! Much of the work here is very drum machine-heavy – in a style that was maybe used more widely a few years before in hip hop, but which still gives this album by the group a nice sense ... read more CD

Soo Deff/Octave (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $18.99
An underground Philly hip hop classic – and a set that's got the same raw edge as the best early work by Schooly D! The Tuff Crew work here with the Krown Rulers – in the kind of record that almost feels like the kind of late nite, party-heavy vibe that made east coast hip hop radio so ... read more CD

✨✧ Wu-Tang ClanIron Flag ... CD
Loud, 2001. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An underrated later Wu Tang effort from '01 – a lean 12 track set that lacks little to our ears, except for the then incarcerated ODB. RZA keeps the production solid, tight and simple – rugged, grimy foil for the rhymes, which sound pretty damn nice all these years later – as ... read more CD
