Black Bastards

2LP
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A legendary record from KMD – one that languished unreleased for far too long! Black Bastards has few tracks the maintain the jazzier sound of the first album, but they're mostly coming a little bit rawer, perfectly balancing their earlier style that gritty early 90s hip hop vibe. As solid as this is as a standalone hip hop relic, it's also a fascinating transitional step from the Zevlove X of Mr Hood to the later MF Doom persona! "Plumskinnzz" and "What A Ni**a Know" reached classic status on their own, and were elevated to even greater heights when the album didn't drop in its time – and other tracks include "Get-U-Now", "Sweet Premium Wine", "Black Bastards", "Constipated Monkey" and "Gimme".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Metal Face pressing from 2010.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Funky b-boy classic!
