✨✧ Grand Daddy IUSmooth Assassin ... CD
Cold Chillin, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
Greatness from the height of the Cold Chillin/Juice Crew glory days! Grand Daddy IU is as dope as many of the other Cold Chillin MC's – yet this album was somehow slept on. The entire LP is produced by Biz Markie and has the feel of the early Big Daddy Kane LPs, but maybe a little more mellow. IU's verses are up there with MC's like Kane and Masta Ace, but his deeper voice and slower pacing give the whole project a more smooth, laid-back hip hop feel! 17 tracks in all: "Something New" (with an amazing use of the Purify's "Sitting in the Park" sample), "This Is A Recording", "Pick Up the Pace", "Sugar Free", "I Kick Ass", "The U is Smooth", Girl In The Mall", "Behind Bars", "Mass Destruction", "Soul Touch", "Gals Dem So Hot" and more!

✨✧ Claude Paradise Gray/Giuseppe U Net PipitoneNo Half Steppin – An Oral & Pictorial History Of New York City Club The Latin Quarter & The Birth Of Hip Hop's Golden Era ... Book
Wax Poetics, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice history of the classic hip hop culture in NYC that rose from Manhattan's Latin Quarter club – a vital mid 80s proving ground for legends and trailblazers of the time! No Half Steppin' is laid out beautifully in rarely seen photos, street flyers, and the first-hand knowledge of X-Clan cofounder and Latin Quarter host and manager Claude "Paradise" Gray, with author/activist/historian Giusseppe "U.Net" Pipitone, and a wealth of oral history from key players including Kurtis Blow, Grand Puba, Dana Dane, Prince Paul, Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane, Fab Five Freddy, KRS-One, Special K and many more. Paradise Gray was a major part of the team that helped turn the club into a hotbed for early hip hop talent, and many of the incredible photos here are from his personal archives. It's a solid time capsule – with tons of full color photos of destined-for-greatness figures on stage and on the scene, with some of the above mentioned heavies and many more. The textual history here nearly as rich as the photos, with chapters on the club's history, key performances over the years, the dance scene there, the impact of Public Enemy on the scene, and much more. Amazing! Paperback, 200+ pages. Book
