Assam (voc, inst)
Funk Night, 2014. New Copy
A tight Detroit hip hop single on Funk Night – with rhymes by underground veteran Guilty Simpson and production by Musca – purportedly representing Saint Petersburg, Russia! It's actually a pretty straight up, no BS hip hop cut – with fresh flowing rhymes and a gritty beat that's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Capital Punishment
Loud/Get On Down, 1998. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The late 90s all caps CLASSIC by Big Pun – a precise rhyme spitter who, sadly, wouldn't live long enough drop follow up masterpiece in his lifetime, but will always have Capital Punishment. Pun was a big mean, but his flow his lean and precise, and while there's some brief throwaway moments, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lets Get Free
Loud/Get On Down, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The dawn of millennium classic by Dead Prez – and angry, revolution-minded effort from a period on major label hip hop that sorely lacked such strident players – and if it didn't make any huge waves commercially, that only strengthens its legacy! Sticman & M1 are at the top of ... LP, Vinyl record album

No Need For Alarm
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initally underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! ...

Columbia/Roc Nation, 2015. New Copy 2LP
A soul-searching effort from J Cole! 2014 Forest Hills Drive is named after the address of his NC childhood home, which is crystal clear clue of the introspective nature here – but it's got fresh, head-nodding hip hop soul production that carries it over all the more strongly. Solidly ... LP, Vinyl record album

BBE/Lost & Found (UK), Mid 90s. Used 2 CDs
A truck load of lost greatness from Pete Rock, featuring the mic skills of INI (Rob O and Grap Luva) and Deda – two previously unreleased full lengths together in one limited edition 2CD package! Ya probably guessed as much before you even started to read this, but for our money these two ... CD

Brand New Second Hand
Big Dada, 1999. Used
There's a heavy Jamaican influence going on here – both in the lyrics, delivered in a heavy patois style, and in the beats, which have a nicely dubbed up sound. Titles include "Dem Phonies", "Sinking Sands", "Baptism", "Movements", "Juggle Tings ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Qwest, 1994. Used
The impossible to get debut from the only noteworthy member of the Hobo Junction crew, Saafir. The Saucy Nomad drops sideways abstractions and in-your-face battle rhymes over beats that often remind us of the Beatnuts around the same time, hard but with a jazzy feel from the horn stabs and ... CD

Livin Large, 1993. Used
YZ LP on the short-lived Livin' Large label, with production sounding sort of like the early 90's DITC projects. Includes his two best post-Tuff City cuts "The Ghetto's Been Good To Me" and "Return Of The Holy One", plus "Acid Rain", "Barber Shop", and for ... CD

Soul Survivor II
BBE/Rapster (UK), 2004. Used
A very strong set from the great Pete Rock – a big improvement on the hit-and-miss SS album on Loud, and perhaps the best full length vocals album to bear the Pete Rock name since Mecca And The Soul Brother! There's really not a lot that we can say about the Pete Rock pedigree that you don't ... CD

Music Madness
Sleeping Bag, 1986. Sealed
The follow up to the classic first LP! Listening to Kurtis Mantronik productions all of these years later is a definite educational experience, given the huge influence the crisp synth sounds had on the future of hip hop – not only as a matter of necessity, given the cost of sample clearance ...

Outcast Vol 1
World One, 1989. Near Mint-
