AMGB*tch Betta Have My Money ... CD
Select, 1991. Used ... $7.99
Let's face it, you're not buying an album entitled "B!tch Betta Have My Money" for lyrical depth. For better or worse, this one's earned its place in the hip hop history books, and we'll be the first to prop up "Vertical Joyride" as a funky guilty pleasure, and guaranteed floor ... read more CD

Epic, 2017. Used ... $6.99
A win for wily hip hip mainstay Big Boi's growing legacy as a solo star!

Rawkus, 1998. Used ... $3.99
The first full-length from Mos Def and Talib Kweli together as Black Star – a benchmark moment in hip hop history, and one of the finest duo vocal hip hip records of the 90s – and one of the best ever on Rawkus!

Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop (with bonus tracks) ... CD
FTG/Sony (UK), 1989. Used ... $8.99
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect ... read more CD

Cavanaugh (Open Mike Eagle & Serengeti)Time & Materials ... CD
Mello Music Group, 2016. Used ... $6.99
Two of post millennium indie hip hop's most distinctive rhyme stylists – Open Mike Eagle and Serengeti – teaming up as Cavanaugh, and it's as inspired of a project as we'd hoped! There's a dark, hazy mood here – particularly in the thick waves of synth in the production, but the ... read more CD

Shadow, 1996. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Heavy beats and funky grooves from DJ Cam – recorded back in his more formative years, when his sound was rougher, and more "in the crates"!

Instinct, 1998. Used ... $6.99

DJ ShadowEndtroducing ... CD
Mo Wax, 1996. Used ... $4.99
It seems like when this came out, critics, and even DJs liked to drop the term "Trip Hop" whenever possible, and this album was held up as the watershed mark. A few years down the line and it still holds up, but as an instrumental hip hop LP, as much as a rock album (Shadow's gone on to ... read more CD

Verve, 2011. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Does any hip hop DJ/producer/artist or otherwise instrumental sound stylist of any stripe face steeper critical expectations with each successive album than DJ Shadow, and if so, do any of them divert those expectations so profoundly as Shadow does?

Mass Appeal, 2016. Used ... $5.99
DJ Shadow at his most stylistically sprawling –doing his thing as distinctively as ever, unpredictable from one track to the next, but very much himself whether it's a sample and scratches cut reminiscent of the Entroducing era or beats-enriched avant jazz or keyboards-heavy tracks! Lots of ... read more CD

Lex, 2016. Used ... $3.99
A tight duo venture from producer Prefuze 73 and rhymer Michael Christmas! Prefuze 73 has been exploring all kinds of abstract production ideas for years, usually carrying his tired-and-true sputtering beats and tripped out atmopsherics, but his straighter hip hop productions really tighten things ... read more CD
