Hip hop lifers and genre-defiant pop art blenders The Beastie Boys deliver the Hot Sauce – either their 8th or 9th album in 25 years, depending on how you count the Mix Up instrumentals set – and it sounds to us like a return to the good times hip hop funk style-hopping that the Boys ...

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
Fresh/Capitol, 1989. (reissue)
LP ... On May 11, 2018
The second album of heavy east coast funk and slow rolling rhymes from the brothers from Brentwood. Nice, fat trunk rattling production and Eric and Parrish's trademark back and forth rhymes keep this set fresh,even today. Loaded with classics: "So What Cha Sayin'", "Get the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fresh/Capitol, 1988. (reissue)
LP ... On May 11, 2018
EPMD's incredible full length debut – straight up classic hip hop that gave the genre a whole new twist. Bottom heavy funked up Long Island hip hop with what was considered slow flow rhymes at the time, and Erick and Parrish's take on funky samples that managed to bring together hard to get ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA/Universal (France), 1992. (reissue)
LP ... About December 8, 2017 (delayed)
The last LP from the Ra when he was still teamed up with Eric B, and though not as great as their classic first 2 LPs, there's more than a few good cuts here: "Relax With Pep", "Casualties of War", "Know The Ledge" and "Don't Sweat The Technique" + 8 more. LP, Vinyl record album
MCA/Universal (France), 1990. (reissue)
LP ... About December 8, 2017 (delayed)
The third album from Eric B & Rakim – classic MC/DJ duo hip hop from classic players! By this point, Rakim was firmly established as one of hip hop's greatest rhymers, and is a fine full length effort that's biggest fault is that it's not quite as spectacular as the first 2 LPs. ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA/Universal (France), 1990. (reissue)
LP ... About December 8, 2017 (delayed)
The great second Eric B & Rakim album – benchmark hip hop of the first order! Following up Paid In Pull, Follow The Leader completes one of the great one-two punches in hip hop history – bring in a richer, fuller, more skillfully creating sound, without sacrificing the dense, hard ... LP, Vinyl record album
4th & Broadway/Universal (France), 1986. (reissue)
LP ... About December 8, 2017 (delayed)
Paid In Full, indeed. Eric B & Rakim's seminal album still pays off in so many ways, and it was such a vital link between the party rockin' style of the old school and the terse, hard-hitting beats and rhymes of what was then the new school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise ... LP, Vinyl record album

LP ... About October 20, 2017 (delayed)
Exactly the kind of record that reminds us why we love Oddisee so much – and why he continues to be one of the freshest talents around – both from a lyrical and musical perspective! At some level, the album's as understated as the look of its cover – with a stripped-down vibe ... LP, Vinyl record album
Little Bit Of Somethin'
Mo Wax/Be With (UK), 2000. (reissue)
LP ... About December 15, 2017
Tommy's first album for Mo Wax, and our favorite of all of his records. An nice little look into an insular world of groovy instrumentals with an offbeat, but mellow vibe. 14 tracks in all, including "Blue Masses", "Four Trk Samba", "Numb Milleneum", "Pescadito&q ... LP, Vinyl record album
