GZA's back doing what he does best on Pro Tools – more of a literally relevant title than it is a nod to modern recording apparatus – as it's a return to gritty classic style Wu sounds and smart, measured rhymes. One could argue that no new ground is broken, but we're pleased with ... LP, Vinyl record album

The legendary album by the third star in the original Native Tongues trinity!

This double vinyl version includes a bonus track ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Get On Down, 1991. (reissue)
LP ... On September 13, 2019
Cypress Hill's debut masterpiece – one of the biggest and best first albums in 90s hip hop! There's little we can add to the canon when it comes to describing this album's impact, but it's still pretty revelatory. Like other west coast rap heavies of the time, Cypress Hill documents real ... LP, Vinyl record album

Slug rhymes like a storyteller when weaving songs of demented heartbreak, his voice pushes forth in a tortured singing style, hook friendly, ironic, and angry (dude still hasn't gotten over Lucy). Ant does all the production, with some dubby beats, some nice spidery piano loops, some drums are a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhymesayers, 2003. 3LP (reissue)
LP ... On September 20, 2019
Atmosphere's signature sound full force – but also featuring some of their most experimental material to this point! Slug bounces along melodically, tortured and true to his nature, yet he comes off a little (just a little) more optimistic this time and he recites more than just tales of ... LP, Vinyl record album

A masterful later album by the Beastie Boys – who always preferred to put out a great record every five or six years, than a sub par album every 2 or 3! All these years after Paul's Boutique, when the world of difficult, expensive sample clearance could've kill the layers of pop pastiche ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grand Royal, 1994. (reissue)

What can we say? The Beasties continue their manic trio hip hop style mixed with the live jazz/funk/garage (as in rock, not house) sound and keyboards by Money Mark – featuring a bunch of their classic material, and underappreciated album cuts.

The debut full length from Pete Rock & CL Smooth – and a bonafide hip hop classic if there ever was one – one of the best ever! Pete Rock's trademark mix of heavy soul, jazz & funk beatcraft pretty much set the bar to a level that's been impossible to top ever sense. On top of ... CD

STFU II
Glydezone, 2019.
CD ... About September 6, 2019
Fantastic funk from Dam-Funk – full of heavy bassbits, sweet beats, and plenty of keyboards – all with that stripped-down sound that always helps us focus on the well-chosen elements in his music! The whole thing's instrumental – and relatively spare, but very fulfilling – ... CD
