Ice CubeDeath Certificate ... CD
Priority, 1991. Used ... $4.99
Cube's anger goes full throttle on his second post NWA full-length. He takes every aspect of his social commentator standpoints to another level from his solo debut – the roles of the angry and educated leader, and the finger-pointing blamer each get their say here, and so do those furiously funky Lench Mob beats. One of the last great gangsta era records to be so propulsive and exciting – Dre's Chronic was waiting just around the corner to haze this sound out of the picture for good. Quite tough to find on wax in it's original pressing – finally reissued with the bonus track "How To Survive In South Central". Other tracks include "Givin Up The Nappy Dug Out", "The Funeral", "Wrong Ni**a To –- Wit", "My Summer Vacation", and "Steady Mobbin". CD
Also available Death Certificate (with 3D lenticular cover image) ... LP 31.99

✨✧ Ice CubeKill At Will ... CD
Priority, 1990. Used ... $4.99
Common was right when he said about Ice Cube "You ain't did shit dope, since 'Amerikkka's Most'". Well, this one came out just before "Amerikkka's Most Wanted" and despite what you may think of his movie career, every track on this 8-song ep reminds us just how dope Ice Cube was back then. About half the tracks feature classic Bomb Squad production. Includes "Jackin' For Beats", the original, and still the best, track about stealing other MC's samples (featuring samples from LL, PE, EPMD, and more). Plus "Endagered Species" (featuring Chuck D and production by the Bomb Squad), "The Product" A remix of "Get Off My D*ck and Tell Yo B*tch To Come Here", and "Dead Homeiz", the first in the unending stream of hip hop funeral songs that still holds up.

Ice CubeLethal Injection ... CD
Priority, 1993. Used ... $3.99
A sharp, angry salvo from Ice Cube! Cube's early 90s solo style was firmly established at this point, so Lethal Injection doesn't have the acknowledged classic status of his previous couple albums, but he's still close to his prime that it's well worth your dollar! As you'd guess from the title, he's still pretty angry – the reasons for that permanent scowl he wore at the time are all over the place, as is the firm Lench Mob production. Tracks include "Really Doe", "Ghetto Bird", "Bop Gun (One Nation)" featuring George Clinton, "What Can I Do?", "Make It Ruff, Make It Smooth" featuring K-Dee, "Down For Whatever", "Enemy", "When I Get To Heaven", and more.

WC & The Madd CircleAin't A Damn Thang Changed ... CD
Priority/Universal (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $14.99
The first of a couple underrated albums from WC & The Madd Circle – a couple years before group founder WC jumped ship to join Ice Cube in Westside Connection, and fellow Madd Circle rhymer Coolio made a bigger name for himself as solo rapper! Ain't A Damn Thang Changed still sounds great, thanks to funk sample production and versatile rhymes, and the titles include "Ain't A Damn Thing Changed", "The Break Up", "A Crazy Break", "Back On The Scene", "Get Up On That Funk", "Smokers La La Bye", "Grandma Locked Out", "Back TO The Underground", "Out On A Furlough", "You Don't Work, You Don't Eat", "F*** My Daddy", "Caught N A Fad" and more. 17 tracks in all.

✨✧ Ras KassSoul On Ice ... CD
Priority/Universal (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The classic debut of Ras Kass – kind of a watershed mark of the intellectual/complicated rhyme style, if you will – finding the west coast MC bursting out of the starting gates with some his best ever work! Includes all of the early singles and some classic level deeper album cuts. Rhymes wise, it's one of the finer albums on Priority of the mid 90s – really delivering some tough, complicated rhymes that rival some of best in the game at the time. 13 tracks in all, including the ambitious 7+ minute "Nature Of The Threat", On Earth As It Is...", "The Evil That Men Do", "Drama", "Sonset", "If/Then", "Reelishymn", "Miami Life", "Soul On Ice" and more.

✨✧ Audio TwoWhat More Can I Say? ... CD
First Priority/Atlantic (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tightly thumping late 80s hip hop from Milk & Gizmo – a bit slept on even back in the day, but it holds up pretty damn well after all these years! Nothing too righteous on the rhyme side, nor as hardcore or profane as some the breakouts of the period, just straight ahead heavy beats and boisterous raps. They didn't invent or reinvent the wheel, but they drive hard, people – and the lack of Hall Of Fame platitudes actually make them a fresher listen after all these years, as it's never been overplayed. Includes "Top Billin" (vocal and instrumental) with one of the earliers (or first?) use of the ubiquitous "Go Brooklyn" beat, plus "What More Can I Say?", "I Like Cherries", "The Questions", "I Don't Care", and "Giz Starts Buggin'".

✨✧ Lil 1/2 DeadSteel On A Mission ... CD
Priority/Universal (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lil 1/2 Dead delivering sold west coast G Funk on his second record for Priority! 1/2 Dead's solo shots didn't breakout like his more famous family and west coast stylistic contemporaries on the early-to-mid 90s west coast scene, but his couple of records on Priority deliver the goods. We worth picking up for G Funk era collectors. Includes "Steel on a Mission '96, "Southern Girl", "Back in the Day", "Young HD", "Still Rollin'", "Gotta Git Cha", and "Cavvy Sound". CD
