RootsHow I Got Over ... LP
Def Jam, 2010. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A less tense and caustic Roots than the crew that hit us on the majority of Rising Down a couple years earlier – and this one's as strong of an album as they've delivered since moving over to Def Jam.

Relativity, 1992. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Rhyming about back packs? It's gotta be the early 90's. Nice, overlooked tracks that sound a little bit like Brand Nubians/Grand Puba from that time, with just a hint of ragga. Maybe not the most original sound, but if you're gonna sound like someone, Puba's not a bad choice. 12-inch, Vinyl record
