Elektra/Modern Classics, 1993. 2LP (reissue)
LP ... On February 23, 2018
While it's pretty fair to say that the Digables would never have existed if not for the whole Native Tongue posse, they managed to take the aesthetic to a new level. This first LP's an early 90s classic that set a new standard for post-Daisy Age jazzy hip hop, with breezy jazzy production, and a ... LP, Vinyl record album

The Neptunes & co.'s ever-evolving hip hop/electro pop creative outlet NERD is back with their best in years!

Tall, Dark & Handsome
B-Boy/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988.
CD ... About March 20, 2018
Another lost bit of the old school brought back from the deep vaults of hip hop history. If your fiending for the crunchy sound of 8 bit samplers and DMX drum machines with old school Bronx style rhymes, this late 80s set from Tall, Dark & Handsome will do the trick. 9 tracks in all, ... CD
Crazy Noise
Fresh/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1989.
CD ... About March 20, 2018
A classic from the vaults of Fresh Records! The album is fairly legendary to beatheads for the Skull Snaps beat that kicks in the start of the track "It's My Turn" (with much respect to Dooley O) but this album stands up as a great listen that should stretch far beyond the Wax Poetics ... CD
Weightless
Warlock/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986.
CD ... About March 20, 2018
The first and best album by the ever slept-on Skinny Boys – recorded for Warlock with a raw, gritty sound – finally available on CD! Weightless is a far more terse effort than the Boys ever recorded for Jive later on. It's actually one of the harder-hitting records we can think of on ... CD
Paper Chase
Warlock/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988.
CD ... About March 20, 2018
Late 80s east coast hip hop fromNew Jersey's Krown Rulers – a tight old school LP that's self produced by the Ruler,s with some help from across the river by Dave from Philly's Tuff Crew. Like the Tuff Crew, this one's on the harder hitting edge of the late 80s sound – the beats kick ... CD
Back To Wreck Shop
Warlock/Octave (Japan), 1989.
CD ... About March 20, 2018
Late 80s Philly hip hop. Nothing groundbreaking here, but nothing too insulting either. 15 tracks, including "Wreck Shop", "Going The Distance", "Danger Zone Assault", "Behold The Detonator", "Soul Food", and "My Parta Town". CD
