✨✧ Large ProfessorLP (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Paul Sea Productions, Mid 90s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The legendary unreleased LP album from Large Professor – recorded for Geffen in the mid 90s, finally seeing official release by Large Professor's own Paul Sea Productions! It's a solid effort, with a vibe that for some reason wasn't speaking to Geffen brass at the time, but it stands up now as a pretty faultless example of solid blueprint beatcraft by one of the scene's pioneers. Some of the production is laidback and jazzy, some has a more booming bass beat, and LP's rhymes are tailored nicely to his beats. Titles include "That Bulls**t", "Hungry", "I Juswanna Chill", "Funky 2 Listen 2", "Mad Scientist", "Hard", "One Plus One" feat Nas (not too far removed from his Large Pro collaborations on Illmatic at this point), "The LP", "Dancin' Girl", "Large Pro:Verbs", "Havin' Fun", "Spacey", "Amaman", "Queens Lounge", "Bowne" and "Big Willie".

T La RockLyrical King (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fresh/Demon (UK), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A well-titled set from the lyrical king – the mighty T La Rock, one of the key mid 80s MCs who helped introduce a whole new level of sophistication to hip hop! T La Rock maybe never hit the heights of KRS-One, Rakim, or other contemporaries – but this set has all the sharp fire and intensity that made that moment of new creativity so great – from the edgey production work and scratches by Louie Lou, to the extra help from Mantronik, and even the album's early appearances by Special K and MC Serch – which further the sense of collaboration from the streets that made some of the Fresh Records sets so great. Titles include "Lyrical King", "Back To Burn", "Three Minutes Of Beat Box", "Bust These Lyrics", "This Beat kicks", "Big Beat In London", and "It's Time To Chill". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEgo Trip's The Big Playback ... LP
Rawkus, 1980s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
On top of releasing some of the very best independent hip hop of the 90s, Rawkus Records did another great service to humanity with this – the double vinyl companion to Ego Trip's Book of Rap Lists! They did a great job of including a lot of amazing old school tracks (1983-1989) that maybe not everyone knows about – but should, including some that are nearly impossible to find on 12", or just about any format, really. Every track here is solid, and most haven't been anthologized elsewhere, and besides, the set plays great from start to finish, with or without the book! Tracks include "Holy War (Live)" by Divine Force, "My Mic Is On Fire" by Lord Shafiyq, "Marly Marl Scratch" by Marley Marl featuring MC Shan, "Get Retarded" by MC EZ & Troup , "Get Down Grandmaster" by Grandmaster Caz, "Step Up Front" by Positive K, "This Cut's Got Flavor" by Latee, "Droppin' It" by Bizzie Boyz, "I'm Not Playing" by Ultimate Force,"Do It! Do It!" by Alliance, "Brooklyn Blew Up The Bridge" by MC Mitchski, and "Beat Bop" (full 10-minute version) by Rammelzee vs. K-Rob. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Big Tone & House ShoesBig Shoes ... LP
Street Corner, 2019. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Producer House Shoes and rhymer Big Tone team up as Big Shoes – one of the most fitting 2 man supergroups in independent hip hop of the late teens for sure – with a solid roster of guests including Demark Vessey, Quelle Chris, Jimetta Rose, Blu, MoSel, Ta'Raach and more! There's a straight forward sensibility, but depth in the details, on both the beats and the rhymes side. House Shoes lays down a no nonsense, driving backdrop, but brings in layers of atmosphere that standout more and more with each listen, while Tone and the guestsgo above and beyond the call of duty on the mic. Includes "Autobiography", 'High Velocity" (Pts 1 & 2), "From My Mouth To God's Ears", "King S**t" with Denmark Vessey & MoSel, "Exodus (Fly Away)", "No Guest List" with Quelle Chris, "Homage", "8th Day" feat Ta'Raach & 87, "Haze" with Jimetta Rose, "Beautiful Mind" with Blu & "Tru Story".

✨✧ Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded (2LP red vinyl edition with bonus track) ... LP
B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... 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 a 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 by KRS-One. Importance aside, 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cypress HillCypress Hill (20th Anniversary red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Get On Down, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cypress Hill's debut masterpiece – one of the biggest and best first albums in 90s hip hop! There's little we can add to the canon when it comes to describing this album's impact, but it's still pretty revelatory. Like other west coast rap heavies of the time, Cypress Hill documents real world street violence with a darkly comic sensibility, redefined usage of the word "blunt" forever more, and simply delivered one of the most influential rap (or rock. . .considering the astonishing crossover success) albums of the decade. "How I Could Just Kill A Man", "Hand On The Pump", "Hole In The Head", "Real Estate", "Stoned Is The Way Of The Walk", "Phunky Feel One", "Pigs", "Latin Lingo", "Something For The Blunted", "Psychobeatbuckdown" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Czarface & MF DoomCzarface Meets Metal Face ... LP
Silver Age, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Czarface team of Wu-Tang veteran Inspectah Deck and Boston underground hip hop heavyweights 7L & Esoteric are joined by the one-and-only MF Doom – a bonafide supergroup – and one of the finest comic book/sci-fi rap records since Madvillainy! Each one of these characters is so brilliant at their best, this record would've been a lot of fun even of they were just winging it – but it's actually pretty A-Game – with big, boisterous beats and clever samples and pretty deft rhymes throughout! Includes "Take Your Medicine", "Meddle With Metal", "Badness Of Madness", "Close Talker" (impressively riffing on a postpunk track by Wire), "Forever People", "Captain Crunch", "Don't Spoil It", "Phantoms" with Open Mike Eagle, "Bomb Thrown", "You Masked For It", "Nautical Depth", "MF Czar", "Sleeping Dogs" and more.

El Michels AffairReturn To The 37th Chamber (with bonus download) ... LP
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 22.98
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right down to its roots – performing new live interpretations with their wickedly sinister groove – all at a level that makes the whole thing a slow funk masterpiece from start to finish! El Michels has always been one of the few real standouts in the deep funk scene – and it's records like this that keep us loving them so much. And even though the set features vocals from Lee Fields on two tracks, and Lady Wray on one more – the instrumental groove is what dominates and draws our ears, on tracks that include "Tears", "Sipped Up", "Shadow Boxing", "Iron Man", "4th Chamber", "Shaolin Brew", "Drums For Sale", "Verbal Intercourse", "Tearz", and "Wu Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin Ta F Wit". (Deep Funk, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album

Top shelf Dilla beats from the archives – and a strong debut full length from Ruff Draft Records! Posthumous releases by favorite departed artists can be a dicey proposition – and much to our relief, Rebirth Of Detroit delivers – with both high quality beats and positive mojo! Dilla didn't cop to current trends in his time on earth (except for the ones he started in the first place) so it stands to reason that the beats he had in the can before he departed would hold up strongly years later – and they do Includes "Detroit Madness", "Big Thangs", "My Victory", "Do It For Dilla Dawg", , "Dillatroit", "Center Of The Movement", "City Of Boom" and more. 12 tracks on 2LPs.

A baker's dozen of that modern weirdo-hop you kids can't get enough of, so you won't find any backpacker or the throw your hands in the air type of beats or rhymes on this journey into the mind of the alien visitor. Includes "Fazers", "Monster Zero", "No Snakes Alive", 'Anti Matter", "Take Me To Your Leader" and "The Fine Print". LP, Vinyl record album

OutkastATLiens (2LP 180 gram picture disc) ... LP
LaFace, 1996. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The huge creative leap forward for Outkast – and one of the greatest hip hop albums ever! The duo laid some incredible groundwork with the debut Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, but this one is really their first (and stunningly, not their last) masterpiece. Timeless and soulful outer space grooves lace teh production and beats behind crazy good, free flowing, inventive rhymes that still manage to stay grounded enough to aptly reflect the darker realities of the ATL of the time. Most tracks have a laid back southern fried groove, and Dre and Big Boi's rhymes are as great as ever here. Essential! Tracks include "ATLiens", "Two Dope Boyz (In A Cadillac)", "Wheelz Of Steel", "Jazzy Belle", "Babylon", "Millennium", and "13th Floor/Growing Old". 14 cuts in all. LP, Vinyl record album
(Really nice 20th anniversary double picture disc pressing!)

Bloody knuckles rap from the late Sean Price and starkly furnished, hard hitting funk beats from Lil Fame – surprisingly strong unreleased rhymes from SP given the number of years that had passed since he departed this realm – with appearances by MOP, Tek, Rockness Monsta, Illa Ghee, Guilty Simpson and more, none of home divert from the prominence of Mr. Price.

Includes "Drop It Heavy" featuring KRS & Big Pun, "Q&A" featuring the Ghetto Dwellas, "Full Scale" with OC, "Raw As Ever", "Dignified Soldiers Remix" with Big L, Lord Finesse & OC, "Hidden Crates", "Who's The Dirtiest" and more.

✨✧ VariousAfro Picks Vol 1 ... LP
Culture Power 45, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Chicago-centric Culture Power 45 teams up NYC's Cocoonmovements for the Afro Picks Vol 1 compilation – picking out mic and production talent from not only the midwest and east coast, but the west coast and southern scenes too – diverse in sound and style, united in the timeless approach! There's a range of styles and stylists here, but the flow is pretty seamless – rolling from starkly-furnished, hard-hitting beatcraft setting up forceful rhymes, to laidback soul jazz beats for mellower rhymes – with production and samples that range from righteous and prideful, to playful to slyly sinister funk. Solid all the way through! Titles include "Vernacular" by Triple Ogs with Chico Son, Sir Syl & Lord Superb, "AFC (All Fat Caps)" by Infinito 2017 (who is also on ball with the cover art direction & design), "I Am" by Writer's Guild (Loer & LIFE Long), "Making Music" by Percee P, "Second Coming" by Merc The BigBody Benz, "Brothers" by Sophisticated Savage (White Owl, Rhinoceros Funk & Yahzeed Divine, "Blowing Off Steam" by Akil (of Jurassic 5 fame) and more.
