Cinematic hip hop soul from Anderson.Paak named after a seaside city west of Los Angeles, CA – but it's not Malibu, it's the stunning follow up Oxnard – a little looser, more diverse, and ultimately just as impressive set from this still rising talent!

Bentley/blocGLOBAL, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 27.99
A great indie set from the early years of the gangsta scene – a record that was maybe overlooked a bit at the time, and which maybe was trying a bit too hard with its posed cover image – but which, after the passage of years, has this great sort of upfront, earnest approach to the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Early 90s greatness from Brand Nubian! Once Puba left the group, we were all ready for this sophomore effort to just fall flat. But Sadat X and Lord Jamar aquit themselves nicely on the mic, and the beats are head-noddingly satisfying too, no doubt due to Dante Ross's guidance.
