Ashanti (clean promo version)

LP (Item 451602) Murder Inc, 2002 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP

(Promo in a Murder Inc sleeve.)

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.

Kanye West

Ye
Def Jam, 2018. Sealed
Pop culture baggage aside, this is some pretty mesmerizing stuff from Kanye West! Ye the album, if his persona hasn't turned you off by now, is a compelling effort from what we'll dub Kanye's "puzzle period" – this strange era of his recorded output that's a long time since his ...

Doggy Style/No Limit, 2000. Near Mint- 2LP
Snoop Dogg's last and best album for No Limit – a turn of the millennium effort that stands a a lot stronger in retrospect, and certainly signaling the coming resurgence Snoop would carrying pretty strongly in the new decade. After Death Row hit hard times and Snoop found into the No Limit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grand Daddy IU

Smooth Assassin
Cold Chillin, 1990. Near Mint-
From the height of the Cold Chillin/Juice Crew glory days. We always considered Grand Daddy IU as dope any of the other first generation Cold Chillin MC's, but somehow this album was slept on, and after Lead Pipe, who knows what happened to him? Biz Markie produced giving this set the feel of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Run The Jewels

RTJ3
Mass Appeal, 2017. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brand Nubian

Foundation
Arista, 1998. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The Brand Nubian reunion LP. Some nice ones here, and still delivering some 5%er knowledge. Production from Diamond D, Lord Finesse, Premier, Puba, and Alamo. Best cuts include "Don't Let It Go To Your Head", "Maybe One Day" featuring Common, "Love Vs. Hate", "P ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eric B & Rakim

Paid In Full
4th & Broadway, 1987. Very Good+
Paid In Full, indeed! Eric B & Rakim's seminal debut 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 the nascent school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise it's due. ...

Polydor, 1984. Very Good+
Sure, maybe Breakin wasn't the most accurate, most faithful portrait of life on the streets in the early 80s – but the film was a great breakout moment for hip hop culture in the mainstream, and also helped sell the new style with a heavy dose of soul! The real stars here are Ollie & ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Childs Afro Cuban Blues Band

Out Among 'Em
Roulette, 1975. Very Good+
A sweet set of 70s Latin Disco – less Afro-Cuban than you might expect, but a great illustration of the way that older Latin modes had filtered down to more mainstream dancefloors at the time! There's definitely still some Latin elements in the mix – but the set's also got Michael ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

You're All I Need
Tamla, 1968. Very Good+
Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell – definitely all you need, if you're looking for Motown duet work of the 60s! The album's possibly the best-remembered from the pair – filled with classics that really define the Marvin duo mode – sublime little tunes that have Gaye and Terrell ... LP, Vinyl record album
