Mercury, 1994. Used ... $5.99
We'll admit it's not as dope as the first LP but in our opinion, it deserved more attention than it got. Not as clever as you might hope both in the production and lyrics, but this LP still has its share of jazzy beats and whimsical but memorable rhymes from Dres and Lawnge, with a little extra ... read more CD

Jive/FTG, 1987. New Copy ... $7.99 10.98
The classic by Schoolly D – his second album, and the one where he really hits his stride – with profane humor and classic drum machine and oddball sample flavored production! It's almost hard-to-believe nowadays, but the un-PC rhymes were straight up scandalous back in the day – ... read more CD

A Shaolin hip hop essential! Heavy numerological rhymes, and the best production on any Wu project (still to this day, even).

Chef Raekwon cooks up one of finest hip hop albums in history – a standout moment in the Wu Tang canon and the 90s in general!
