Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded ... CD
B-Boy, 1986. Used ... $4.99
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". CD

✨✧ CybotronEnter Cybotron (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fantasy/Decision, 1983. Used ... $4.99
A mindblowing debut from Cybotron – one of the most unusual groups to ever hail from Detroit – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the musical legacy of the city! Cybotron have a sound that's starkly electronic, and a huge influence on later electro, hip hop, techno, and house – served up here as a spare, fuzzy approach to funk – but with lots of the colder touches you'd find from post-punk imports at the time! The blend is quite unique, and even more unusual given the fact that the trio were working in virtual obscurity on the Detroit scene – as an early project from the legendary Juan Atkins, with guitarist Jon-5, and the mysterious electronician 3070! There's more funk here than most of the group's electro contemporaries – but the sound is still nicely cold in all the right parts too – and titles include the seminal "Clear", which was years ahead of its time – plus "Cosmic Cars", "Cosmic Raindance", "Industrial Lies", "The Line", and "Alleys Of Your Mind". CD reissue also features some nice bonus cuts – including "Clear (Jose Animal Diaz rmx)", "Cosmic Cars (Detroit style mix)", "Techno City (voc)", "Techno City (inst)", "R-9 (inst)", and "Eden (voc)".

Illa JYancey Boys ... CD
Delicious Vinyl, 2008. Used ... $4.99
J Dilla's brother Illa J collaborates with Dilla for the Yancey Boys album – produced with a batch of Dilla's beats! This album could have gone wrong in a number of ways for a number of reasons – but truth be told it's a quality record that's actually worth checking out! Most importantly, Illa J's is a genuine talent – rolling with a mix of singing and rhyming is really unique – and the bright, spacey funk beats by Dilla are naturally top notch & timeless. Tracks include "Timeless", "We Here", "R U Listenin'" feat Guilty Simpson, "All Good", "Swagger", "Illasoul", "Air Signs" and more. CD

Metal Face/Nature Sounds, 2003. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Heavily funky sci fi weirdness from the Metal Face archives! If you dig Doom beats – and why wouldn't ya?! – this is pretty prime stuff. They come nice and heavy, with all the rolling soul sample loops, peppered with odball dialog snippets from horror and sci fi flicks here and there. The titles are unimportant, but here's a few any way: "Agrimony", "Arabic Gum", "Bergamot Wild", "Dragon's Blood Resin", "Elder Blossoms", "Star Anis", "Four Thieves Vinegar", "Galangal Root", "Spikenard", "Hyssop" and more. 16 tracks in all.

Outkast's first single from Aquemini – one of the great southern hip hop singles of the late 90s and an important creative benchmark for Big Boi, Andre 3000 and Organized Noize however you might feel about their use of the civil rights heroine's name! As fresh, soulful & uniquely Outkast today as ever. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Arthur Russell & OthersSleeping Bag Sessions ... CD
Sleeping Bag, 1980s. Used ... $5.99
Dancefloor jams, post disco soul, early NYC hip hop beats and straight up amazing 80s NYC progressive club genius from Arthur Russell – a compilation of great tracks he performed on, authored, remixed, edited or produced for Sleeping Bag in the early-to-mid 80s! Includes underground classics from Bonzo Goes To Washington, Dinosaur L, Felix, Indian Ocean and more – all touched in some way by Arthur Russell, with artists in the sessions from Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads and Bootsy Collins in Bonzo, to a collaboration with producer Nicky Siano in the tracks by Felix, and players from the earlier Loose Joints disco sessions. Incredibly important stuff on one hand, and appealingly funky 80s grooves on a more superficial level – and great stuff either way you slice it. Titles include "5 Minutes (B-B-B mix)" by Bonzo Goes To Washington, "Tiger Stripes" and "You Can't Hold Me Down" (extended mixes) by Felix, "Chill Pill (Underwater mix)" by Sounds Of JHS 126 Brooklyn, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "Go Bang!

VariousBoombox – Early Independent Hip Hop, Electro, & Disco Rap 1979 to 1982 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
Great cuts from the old school – pulled together from the earliest days of hip hop – at a time when the boundary lines in the music weren't so fully formed! These days, the difference between hip hop and club cuts is huge – but back in the South Bronx scene at the start, there was a lot more interplay between styles – as 70s funk served as the blueprint, disco singles expanded the format, soul vocals gave some structure, and live rhymes and DJ work provided all of the spontaneous elements that made the music so unique – coming together with amazing energy that really reflected the street-level sounds of the New York scene! This ultra-hip collection brings together all those amazing strands from the early years – in a set that's one of the best historically important Soul Jazz titles we've seen in years – from the excellent track selection right down to the very detailed notes. There's plenty of rare cuts here you're not likely to have in your collection – and titles include "Body Rock" by Neil B, "Positive Life" by Love Bug Starski & The Harlem World Crew, "At The Place To Be" by Mr Sweety G, "New Rap Language" by Spoonie G & The Treacherous Three, "We Are People Too" by Master Jay, "Equidity Funk" by Mistafide, "And You Know That" by TJ Swan, "Searching Rap" by Bon Rock & The Rhythm Rebellion, "Willie Rap" by Willie Wood & The Willie Wood Crew, "Rhythm Rap Rock" by Count Coolout, "On The Go" by Black Bird & Kevski, "Philosophy Rappin Spree" by Super 3, "Move Your Body" by Bramsam, and "One More Time" by Sugar Daddy.

Mindblowing – undeniably one of the most important records ever in hip hop, much less pop muisic, but we didn't need to tell you that. Original pressing of the first De La LP, and it still sounds as great now as it did when it blew our minds way back at the end of the 80's!

✨✧ Mary J BligeWhat's The 411? (25th anniversary edition) ... LP
Uptown/MCA, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The landmark debut of Mary J Blige – a record that not only did a great job of blending underground hip hop and mainstream soul sensibilities – but maybe also opened the door for the Neo Soul revolution to come! Mary comes on here with a fresh new vision in female soul – one that's informed by the youth and upfront energy of the hip hop female MCs that preceded her – but with a depth that also makes Blige sort of the new Aretha Franklin for the end of the century – a deep soul singer, but one who's equally at home in the streets and the studio. Important production is by a young Sean Combs – some of his first great work on record – and the set also features guest appearances from Busta Rhymes, Little Shawn, Grand Puba, Erick Sermon, and CL Smooth. Titles include "Real Love", "Sweet Thing", "Love No Limit", "You Remind Me", "Reminisce", "What's The 411", "I Don't Want To Do Anything", "Changes I've Been Going Through", "Slow Down", and "My Love".

✨✧ GZA/GeniusPro Tools (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Babygrande, 2008. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
GZA's back doing what he does best on Pro Tools – more of a literally relevant title than it is a nod to modern recording apparatus – as it's a return to gritty classic style Wu sounds and smart, measured rhymes. One could argue that no new ground is broken, but we're pleased with consistent craftsmanship around here, and GZA can build a heavy mood around his inimitable voice and rhyme style as well as any one of his Wu compatriots. Production by Mathematics, True Master, Bronze Nazareth and RZA himself from team Wu, plus the increasingly important Black Milk and others. Titles include "Pencil" feat Masta Killa & RZA, "Alphabets", "Groundkeeping" feat Justice Kareem, "7 Pounds", the excellent "0% Finance", "Paper Plate", "Columbian Ties" feat True Master, "Firehouse" feat Ka, "Life Is AMovie" feat RZA & Irfane Khan-Acito and more.

Interscope, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A modern classic hip hop soundtrack to Black Panther that should make T'Challa proud! It was pretty clear early on that Black Panther might be one of the greatest modern super hero movies – and an important one for the political and cultural climate of the late teens – so the pressure was on to deliver a relevant soundtrack. What's stunning is how creatively uncompromising it is, with sharp, lyrically pointed tracks by Kendrick Lamar – and with no watering things down to PG-13 on this unedited version – plus tracks by Schoolboy Q, Vince Staples, The Weeknd, Ab-Soul and more. Kendrick headlines or guests on several tracks including the title track, "All The Stars" with SZA, "King's Dead" with Jay-Rock, Future & James Blake, "Big Shot" with Travis Scott and "Pray For Me" with Weeknd. Other tracks include "Opps" by Vince Staples, "I Am" with Jorja Smith, "X" by Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz & Saudi and more. LP, Vinyl record album
