J Dilla's brother Illa J collaborates with the departed Dilla for the Yancey Boys album – produced with a batch of Jay Dee beats! This album could have gone wrong in a number of ways for a number of reasons – but truth be told it's a quality record that's actually worth checking out! ... CD

Delicious Vinyl, 1995. New Copy 3 CDs
CD...$9.99 19.98
Delicious Vinyl gone G Funk! Masta Ace's second solo helmed album may not be the most topically innovative thing you'll find on the lyrical side, but the low ridin' gangsta thing rarely ever sounded sweeter than it does on this record! A very worthy release that gets lost in the shuffle of high ... CD

The late 80s debut full length from Special Ed – classic midtempo funky hip hop and fresh rhymes that still holds up – one from the glory days of straight forward, straight up, solid hip hop! It's hard to believe that Special Ed was just in his mid teens when this album was recorded, ... CD

The timeless sounding underground classic debut of Frank-N-Dank – which is a strong first full length statement for the duo – and a significant milestone in the J Dilla production canon! It has more of a straight up, street ready rhyme style than was typical for Dilla productions at ... CD
Mass Appeal, 2017. New Copy
A vital third act in the thankfully ongoing RTJ saga! The first album was unsurprisingly excellent, but surprisingly popular. The second album not only turned out to be a bigger hit, it was also a creative peak for both El-P and Killer Mike – which is really saying something. So the stakes ... CD
Stones Throw, 2003/2007. New Copy
Madlib looks back at his classic collabo with J Dilla – the eternal Champion Sound LP – with a solid batch remixes, including a previously unreleased cut from the sessions! That jam, "Da Rawkus" is a swirling should-be classic, but the full set is solid, too – putting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rap-A-Lot/Priority, 1991. New Copy (reissue)
Remember Houston in the days before the screwed era, but when the city was still putting a whole different spin on the rap game?

Sour Soul (180 gram pressing with bonus CD)
Lex, 2015. New Copy
Cinematic hip hop from the steadily productive, furiously on point rhyme slinger Ghostface Killah – working here with the excellent Toronto jazz funk ensemble Badbadnotgood – and as much as we dug Ghostface's funk band backed efforts of the previous couple years, Sour Soul might be best ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, 1986. New Copy
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 ... CD
Boo Hooray, Late 70s/Early 80s/2014. New Copy
