✨✧ ConwayLook What I Became ... LP
Griselda/De Rap Winkel (Netherlands), 2019. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Conway The Machine certainly earns his name here – as there's a focused directness to his sound that makes the whole record feel like it's an automatic, effortless effort from the MC! There's great production help along the way – from Alchemist, Daringer, JR Swiftz, Rick Hyde, and Statik Selektah – and guests include Gunn and Benny on "Tito's Back", Amber Simone on "You Made It", and the trio of Jim Jones, Dave East, and El Camino on "Vino D" – but it's Conway's flow that really keeps things together, on other titles that include "Half Of It", "Bells Palsy", "Black Spoons", "RIP Owen", and "No Women No Kids". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Q-TipKamaal The Abstract ... CD
Battery/Jive, 2002/2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Q-Tip's legendary unreleased jazz funk flavored Kamaal The Abstract album – a wonderful record that should have come out in 2002 (!!!) – but in yet another tribute to Q-Tip's genius, it sounds just as great all these years later! We remember well, hearing snippets of Kamaal The Abstract on a promo only sampler, and telling anyone who would listen to us what a wholly credible modern hip hop learned take on 70s keyboard funk this record was going to be, and how it would catapult Q-Tip into forefront of modern innovators. Then it got bumped, and bumped, and bumped, and finally sealed in the vault. Here it is, folks! Rhodes, Moog, organs, piano, synth, bass, soulful guitars, live and programmed drums carry the headnodding jazz funk vibe, with Q-Tip/Kamaal's buttery vocals as a piece of the overall groove, as opposed to party rocking MC mode. The Abstract Rapper does stand out a couple times, but for the most part it's all about setting up a vibe, and what a vibe it is. Titles include "Feelin", "Do You Dig U?" featuring Gary Thomas & Kurt Rosenwinkel, "A Million Times", "Blue Girl". "Barely In Love", "Heels", "Abtractionisms" featuring Kenny Garrett, aka Truth, "Caring", "Even If It Isn't So", "Make It Work" and "Damn You're Cool". CD
