✨✧ AtmosphereGod Loves Ugly (3LP deluxe edition – withdownload) ... LP
Rhymesayers, 2002. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Slug's distinctive, repuation setting storytelling and Ant's production excellence in ful force. The former weaves songs of demented heartbreak, his voice pushes forth in a tortured singing style, hook friendly, ironic, and angry. Ant does all the production, with some dubby beats, some nice spidery piano loops, some drums are a little more quirky and off kilter (in a good way) than his previous work. Includes "Onemosphere", "The Bass And The Movement", "F#ck You Lucy", the creepy anthem "God Loves Ugly", "Saves The Day", "Vampires", "Modern Man's Hustle", "Blamegame" and "Shrapnel". 2019 remastered 3LP pressing. LP, Vinyl record album
(Deluxe remastered 3LP pressing includes a download with 2 hours of bonus material and more!)

✨✧ Black MoonRise Of Da Moon ... LP
Duck Down, 2020. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Brooklyn hip hop heavies Buckshot, 5ft and DJ Evil Dee rise together for the first proper Black Moon album in 15 years – produced by the Da Beatminerz and featuring just a handful of guest spots, from Method Man, General Steele, Smif N Wessun, Rockness Monsta and Tek – doing their legacy proud by showing up with a sound that's a lot more relevant and resilient than it is nostalgic! Tight, straight forward independent hip hop from an influential crew. Includes the title track, "Creep Wit Me", "Da Don Flow", the headnodding funky standout "A Haaaa", "Ease Back" with Method Man & General Steel", "Impossible" with Smif N Wessun, "Glory", "General Fever", "At Night", "Pay Back", "Roll Wit Me" feat Tek, "Look At Them" and more.

✨✧ Childish GambinoBecause The Internet (2 X 180 gram vinyl pressing) ... LP
Glassnote, 2014. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Maybe not the first album from Childish Gambino, but a set that certainly showed the world that the hip hop side of Donald Glover was ready to overtake his role on screen! The album's rock-solid all the way through – as much a contemporary soul experiment as a hip hop masterpiece – and the expansive vision here shifts beautifully between high-minded concepts and tunes that are very down to earth – a balance that not only elevates the role of Glover/Gambino, but also the role of mainstream hip hop as well! Titles include "Dial Up", "The Worst Guys", "Telegraph Ave", "Sweatpants", "Worldstar", "Crawl", "Shadows", "Death By Numbers", "No Exit", "Zealots Of Stockholm", "Flight Of The Navigator", "3005", "Earth The Oldest Computer", and "Playing Around Before The Party". LP, Vinyl record album

Cold Crush BrothersTroopers ... LP
West Side/Demon (UK), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
The Cold Crush Brothers were a seminal force in New York hip hop in the mid 80s – thanks to singles on Tuff City, Profile, and B Boy – but this is the first full album the group ever issued, and really the only one until later collections of their work! The vibe here follows from the B Boy years – the lineup that has Tony Crush on the turntables, post-Caz – still rocking it hard with great use of samples from that time when the early groups were really starting to change things up! At a time when hip hop was starting to creep into the major labels, these guys still keep it nice and raw – on tracks that include "Feel The Horns", "She's No Good", "My Guitar", "We Can Do This", "Cold Crush", "The Bronx", "Troopers", and "Pump It Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Doug E Fresh & The Get Fresh CrewPlay This Only At Night (truth mix the whole story, Will's mood, special get fresh radio, radio, nuthin but the beat, inst) ... 12-inch
Reality, 1986. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Unlike the normal high-energy Doug E Fresh style, as you might guess from the title "Play This Only At Night" utilizes the creepy theme from the Phantasm soundtrack, and the dark lyrics about death match the mood of the music. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Reality sleeve.)

✨✧ FunkdoobiestBrothas Doobie ... CD
Epic/Immortal, 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Remember the mid 90s when the blunted Muggs sound bumped from trunks west coast to east? Funkdoobiest didn't invent rhymes about porn and weed, but they went a long way towards perfecting the genre over fat Muggs screech and bounce production on their second album. Includes "Rock On", "Dedicated", "XXX Funk", "What The Deal", "Superhoes", "It Ain't Going Down", "P*ssy Ain't Sh*t" and "Tomahawk Bang". 13 tracks in all. CD
(Out of print.)

Funky BijouAdventures In The Land Of Breaks ... LP
Stereophonk (France), 2020. New Copy ... $34.99
These guys definitely take the "breaks" in the title seriously – as the music explodes with fresh funky drums right from the start – very much in an old school style, but mixed with elements that also showcase more of sonic influence from decades of hip hop production too! Most of the tracks are funk cuts created by mixing – ala the early years of the Melting Pot label – but there's also maybe more of a vintage vibe going on, and something of a Wu-Tang-inspired love of offbeat sounds and musical elements. Titles include "Nagasaki Break", "Itchy The Blind", "Okinawa Break", "Late Night", "Karate Break", "Sec Undo", and "Mountain Funk". (Deep Funk, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition pressing – in a screenprinted sleeve!)

✨✧ Royce Da 5'9Allegory ... CD
E One, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Royce Da 5'9 hitting what we think will go down as a later career creative high point – creeping up on 20 years since his debut solo album and more than 2 decades since the first Bad Meets Evil single! Royce's reputation as one of the stronger MCs of his generation rings true on Allegory for sure, with rhymes that are self-reflective and socially aware at the same time. This one is largely produced by Royce as well – and on the best tracks that production is compelling enough without getting in the way of his voice, the background sounds stretching out and letting the rhymes carry the load. Those rhymes are strongly relevant to the times, but crafted in a way that'll ring true for years to come. Includes "Mr Grace", "Dope Man", "I Don't Age", "Generation Is Broken", "Overcomer", "Thou Shall", "Tricked", "Black People In America", "Black Savage", "Rhino Doo Rag", "Young World", "My People Free", "Hero", "Upside Down" and more. CD
