Bulletproof Wallets
Epic/Get On Down, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Ghostface's follow up to Supreme Clientele – a tough predecessor to live up, no doubt about that – but Bulletproof Wallets is still a cut or 10 above some of the Wu work of the later 90s and early 00s! The single "Ghost Showers" is a straight up classic level track, and " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jive/Get On Down, 2006. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best later single from Oakland hip hop legend Too Short – produced by Lil' Jon! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jive, 2016. New Copy
A hell of a comeback for Tribe Called Quest – maybe one of the best musical comebacks ever, and a fantastic reminder of why we loved the group so much in the first place! 18 years have passed since we last heard from the trio (now, sadly, a duo) – and that time only seems to have ... CD

Fat Beats, 2016. New Copy
Ras G's entry in the Baker's Dozen series from Fat Beats – an effort we had high hopes for, knowing how strong the series has been to date, and what Ras G is capable of production wise – and sure enough, it's a real win! This isthe fourth LP in the series to date, in which Fat Beats ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rap-A-Lot/Priority, 1993. New Copy (reissue)
An early 90s effort from Houston gangsta rap pioneers The Geto Boys! This one features Big Mike in the place of recently departed MC Willie D, and while earlier Geto Boys records might've set the expections bar pretty high for this one live up to, it holds up pretty strongly. After all these years, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sunday Outtakes
Computer Ugly, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)
Untitled outtakes from the team of Black Milk & Nat Turner! 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
LaFace, 1996. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The huge creative leap forward for Outkast – and one of the greatest hip hop albums ever! The duo laid some incredible groundwork with the debut Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, but this one is really their first (and stunningly, not their last) masterpiece. Timeless and soulful outer space ... LP, Vinyl record album

Profile/Sony, 1986. New Copy (reissue)
The massive third album from Run DMC – done while at the very top of their game – and rightly broke out big to a much wider audience than just about any rap record before it! Part of the album's strength is its guitar-heavy sound on some of the grooves – produced by Rick Rubin ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Big Beat, 1980s/2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic tribute to the 808 drum machine – tracks all pulled together in support of the documentary on the magical beatmaker – but a set that stands more than strongly on its own! The mix of music is great – a heavy dose of 80s hip hop and club tracks, mixed with some more ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Boo Hooray, Late 70s/Early 80s/2014. New Copy
A fantastic treasure from the early days of hip hop – a special mix that's made completely from rare Afrika Bambaataa/Zulu Nation dub plates and acetates – cut together here by Jimmy Jim, with a feel that's just like stumbling into some South Bronx party back in the day! The limited ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A creative leap for Mndsgn – moving further into an 80s-inspired west coast boogie funk and soul vibe on Body Wash that he really just hinted at on Yawn Zen! In a way, he's working in a nice realm somewhere between the electro funk heat of peers like Dam Funk and the hazy, psych-fusion-soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Profile/Legacy, 1988. New Copy
The best ever Christmas themed hip hop single – with Run-DMC's holiday staple "Christmas In Hollis – with and their eternally great "Peter Piper" on the flip! Great picture disc version, too – with a classic shot of group in the middle of a Christmas wreath! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Elmatic
Jae B Group, 2011. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Elzhi of Slum Village brings us a pretty great little tribute to Nas's monumental Illmatic – with backing by Detroit funk combo Will Sessions! This is an homage that works, really, really well. Elzhi stays true enough to Nas's vision, but he's not straight up covering it. He puts his own ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bigger And Deffer
Def Jam, 1987. New Copy
Stone classic LL Cool J! There was a time we didn't really rate this one on the same level as Radio, but listening with fresh ears after all these years – prime old school Def Jam with an energy that's really missing in so much of the hip hop to follow in the next couple years – and ... CD

Carrollton Heist
ALC, 2016. New Copy
Raw brilliance from the Spitta Andretti (aka Curren$y) and the ever-reliable Alchemist! Lean, hard-hitting beats as bedrock, seemingly off-the-cuff, ruggedly intelligent rhymes and only not a wasteful moment in this sharp as nails underground effort – with a small, but impressive trio of ...

Rebellion Sessions
Computer Ugly, 2016. New Copy
Soul jazz-steeped, largely instrumentals set from always jazz reverent, but rare so solidly jazz rooted producer Black Milk – played in live band arrangements by the group Nat Turner – and it's a stunner! It's got prominent bass lines, airy keyboards, and funky drums inspired by some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
