Since the day this single came out, it's been a favorite for MC's to freestyle over – with just a simple drum line combined with a killer, killer koto sample, a big beat precursor to the Asian string fetish Timbaland and others used a full seven years later! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Large ProfessorLP (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Paul Sea Productions, Mid 90s. New Copy (reissue)... About December 12, 2019
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".

Little Brother returns with another head nodding batch of true school for the oughties – deep rhymes, smooth flows and 100% grade A beats whipped up from dusty crates of the best in the business! As always, it's refreshing to hear Phonte and Big Pooh deliver a gimmick free set from start to finish, reminding us it's not necessary to dig way down into the underground for to wash the taste out of that greasy kids stuff out of your ears. Khrysis is the anchor beat scientist on this album, with appearances by 9th Wonder, Nottz, DJ Babu, DJ Spinna, Kickdrums, RJD2 and others, and guest rhymes by Oh No, Kardinal Offishal, Rhymefest, Skillz and more! 16 tracks in all, keeing the Justus brand viable in today's crowded market, including "Can't Stop Us", "Delusional", "Life Of The Party (rmx)", "Best Kept Secret", "Do It To Death", "Too Late For Us", "Never Leave", "The Pressure", "Stylin", "Cross That Line (rmx)", "Back At It (rmx)" and "Time Of Your Life".

The album's a brilliant batch of tunes produced with a sound that recalls the glory days of Marley's years at Cold Chillin, but which also shows a tremendous respect for changes in underground hip hop over the past few years. Marley's got a host of heavyweight guest stars – including Roy Ayers, Edwin Birdsong, Big Daddy Kane, Capone, Screwball, and others – and the album's a mixture of vocal and instrumental tracks that include "Do U Remember", "Three's Company", "Spazz", "Who's Sicker", "Lost Beat", "Easy Type Sh*t", "What Ruling Means", "Hummin", "Big Faces", and "Foundation Symphony".

Koch, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The RZA's fine second phase career as a top notch soundtrack maestro continues with Afro Samurai – the music for the anime/blacksploitation hybrid starring Samuel L Jackson – and a varied batch of tracks that's really a lot more than the typical Ghost Dog/early Wu Tang style beats you might be expecting! Naturally, RZA does bring plenty of martial arts style and soul beat instrumentals, but there are also a lot of vocal cuts – which run the gamut from raw freestyle-like bits to atmospheric r&b. GZA drops in, as do pioneers Big Daddy Kane and Q-Tip! Titles include "Afro Theme" with rhymes by RZA, "Certified Samurai" feat Talib Kweli, Lil Free & Suga Bang, "Just A Little Dude" feat Q-Tip & Free Murder, "Oh" and "The Walk" feat Stone Mecca, "Cameo Afro" feat Big Daddy Kane, GZA & Suga Bang, "Take Sword Pt 1" with RZA & Berretta 9 and more vocal tracks, plus the instrumentals "Afro Intro", "Afro's Father Fight", "The Empty 7 Theme", "Afro Samurai Theme (First Part and Second Part)" and more.

While most of the true hip hop pioneers had fallen off by this time, Spoonie G actually did some of his best material in the mid-80's.

Fresh, 1987. Used ... $7.99
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". CD version includes four bonus tracks "It's Yours (12" radio mix-1984)", "Breakdown (12" version-1985)", "Breaking Bells (12" version-1986)" and "Bass Machine (12" version 1986)". CD

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CDs ... $11.99
Another absolutely essential collection from Soul Jazz, this time out heading straight for the outer boroughs of the Bronx, Harlem, Brooklyn and Queens to document the fresh, fly, wild and bold rap tracks that rocked block parties and roller rinks from '79 on! 16 amazing tracks from the dawn of the hip hop age, seminal numbers over bouncing roller disco style grooves that'll have you digging out your Kangol, Cazals and that fat belt buckle with your initials on it. A few of these numbers are quite well known, but nearly impossible to get on vinyl, at least in their original format, but there's also a good dose of tracks culled from small indie 12"s that change hands for crazy money too. Plus the booklet is replete with loads of photos, great notes and interviews, and best of all, tons of reproductions of original flyers for parties and jams we can only wish we had the chance to attend! Includes "Spoonin' Rap" by Spoonie Gee, "Sure Shot" by Xanadu, "How We Gonna Make The Black Nation Rise" by Brother D, "Catch The Beat" by T Ski Valley, "Funk Box Party" by The Masterdon Committee, "Weekend" by the Cold Crush Brothers, "Big Apple Rappin'" by Spyder D, "Get The Party Jumpin" by Solo Sound, "When You're Standing On The Top" by the Super 3, "Are You Ready?" by TJ Swann, Peewee Mel & Barry B, and "The Ultimate Rap" by the Nice & Nasty 3.

Def Jam, 2010. Used CD&DVD ... Out Of Stock
A solo set from once and hopefully future half of Outkast Big Boi – and he delivers big here for Def Jam – classic Outkast level excellence from Sir Lucious Leftfoot! Production by Organized Noize, Scott Storch, J Beattzz, DJ Cutmasta Swiff and others, many songs with co-production credit to Big Boi, and we would take that seriously. The way his deft, charismatic rhymes meld with spacey thumping funk beatcraft doesn't feel like a batch of commissioned productions, but a unique, flowing tapestry that's got Big Boi written all over it. Fantastic and heartening to us to see a hip hop veteran and longtime favorite delivering this sharply and adventurously after all these years. Includes "Daddy Fat Sax", "Turns Me On" with Sleepy Brown & Joi, the instant classic single "Shutterbugg" feat Cutty, "General Patton", "Tangerine" feat TI & Khujo Goodie, "Hustle Blood" feat Jamie Foxx, "Be Still" with Janelle Monae, "Fo Yo Sorrows" feat George Clinton , Too Short & Sam Chris, "Shine Blockas" feat Gucci Mane, "Back Up Plan" and more. 17 tracks on the deluxe edition CD, which also includes a bonus DVD featuring 5 videos!

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".

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.

Then and now, Compton's Most Wanted stood out for the lean, moody approach to the sound and style, hewing strongly to the prominent beats and funk samples, but in the service of a more melancholy vibe than some of the more boisterous, bigger sounding gangsta rap of the time. Stands strong to this day, and the titles include "Hood Took Me Under", "Compton 4 Life", "8 Iz Enough", "Hoodrat", "Ni**az Strugglin", "I Gots Ta Get Over", "Def Wish II", "Music To Drive By", "N 2 Deep" feat Scarface, "Another Victim" and lots more.

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.

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!

We don't know if Jazz tailors his beats for the chosen MCs – or if he seeks out the appropriate MCs for his ready-made material – but whatever his methods, they're still working well. Return Of The Magnificent is a standard bearing effort!

Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

A compelling instrumentals set from producer Jansport J – with a big sound, head nodding beatcraft that rarely lets up, and some really great use of samples – a set that feels inspired by classic hip hop without falling back on a "golden age" vibe. He's got an adventurous sensibility that feels akin to modern luminaries like Madlib or Dilla, without copping their styles in any way – a little more playful in spots, and moodier in others – you can definitely hear why he's earned production credits for stars and underground heavies alike, from Snoop, to Kurupt, to Blu and many more.

Weirdo electro pop from the early 80s – with a groove that's right in the beatbox mode, adding in plenty of linn drums and keyboard riffs that sound like they're lifted right off an instrumental side by Newcleus! The vocals are the weakest link – but they back off nicely for extended periods, and the track "MBO Theme" has no vocals at all! A nice one for the poppin' and breakin' crowd – and with the tracks "The Big Apple", "I Love You", and "Dirty Talk". (Soul, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a worn and splitting spine with a sicker in one corner.)

NobodySmash Yr Radio/Velvet Cove ... 7-inch
Ubiquity, 2019. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $4.99
A spare funky instrumental from Nobody – just rumbling drums and a moody bassline – with lots of fuzzy guitar getting weird over the top – a bit like Spacemen 3 cutting a funk single! "Velvet Cove" has bassy beats and keyboards – a vibe that feels like it's taken from an 80s action soundtrack – that moment when the hero duo are driving out to the big final scene, getting some bro time together in the car! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Link Up & Suede EP ... LP
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Debut EP from Anderson.Paak & Knxwledge – teaming up as the duo NxWorries – with hazy hip hop beatcraft by Knxwledge and unique vocals by Anderson.Paak! Paak has a very distinctive voice, fresh from some standout moments on Dr. Dre's Compton record here and (justly) poised for bigger things to come commercially, but this fine EP on Stones Throw is definitely a creative win. Well worth picking up! Includes "Anthrime (Intro)", "Link Up", "DatWhip", "Suede" (vocal and instrumental), "Dntstop" and "Droogs". (Neo Soul, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Yes Lawd! (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge's full length debut as a duo – and the most triumphant Stones Throw record in years! To this (still early) point in young .Paak's career, his voice has already proved to be a prime vessel for natural grit and mood, if not gamechanger songwriting, best paired with crackling, funk-steeped hip hop soul production. That's the case whether he's producing himself, working with a giant like Dr. Dre, or paired as he is here with Knxledge. Knx's production is a perfect backdrop – beats out front in the mix, classic Cali sample funk and soul framing the vocals – with a lingering haze holding it all together amazingly well! Intentional or not, Yes Lawd channels earlier Stones Throw classic LPs like Jaylib and Madvillain in the way it pairs distinctive contemporary talents for a joint duo effort, and after .Paak's solo shot Malibu, it's his second potential classic in a single year! Includes "Livvin", "Wngs", "What More Can I Say", "Kutless", "Lyk Dis", "Can't Stop", "Get Bigger", "Scared Money", "Suede", "Starlite", "Sidepiece", "Jodi", "Link Up", "Another Time", "Fkku" and more.

✨✧ OutkastATLiens (2LP 180 gram picture disc) ... LP
LaFace, 1996. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!)

Show & AGGoodfellas ... CD
Payday/FFRR, 1995. Used ... $24.99
Show & AG's slept on second album from the mid 90s, finally getting its due. With beats by Show, Lord Finesse, Premier, Roc Raida and Dres you know it's fresh from start to finish, with that dope east coast vibe from the days when you didn't have to remain underground to stay real. The sort of album that used to get held up as real hip hop, versus the rap music that was mostly coming off the other coast, though we know it's all part of the same big happy family today. With 14 tracks: "Check It Out", the original and Premier remix of "Next Level", "You Know Now", "Got Ya Back", "Got The Flava", "Never Less Than Ill", "Add On", "Time For", "Neighbahood Sickness", "All Out", "Medicine" and "I'm Not The One".

Tone-LocLoc'ed After Dark (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Delicious Vinyl, 1989. Used ... $4.99
The crossover rap classic from Tone-Loc! Temporary pop phenom this is not – the biggest couple of hits are still ubiquitous decades later – and Loc himself, with that raspy voice and smooth charisma, still stands as one of more unique voices of late 80s hip hop. On top of those attributes, Loc-ed After Dark is an early proving ground for the soon-to-be mega-producers The Dust Brothers. This 2012 CD edition features the original album and 7 bonus tracks. 3 cuts produced by the Dust Brothers – "Cutting Rhythms", "Next Episode", and "Don't Get Close" – plus the hits "Wild Thing", "Cheeba Cheeba", and "Funky Cold Medina", the title track, "On Fire (Remix)" and more. Bonus tracks include "On Fire (New Flavor)", "The Homies (On Tilt Mix)", "The Fine Line Between Hyper And Stupid", "Funky Beats" and more. CD
