12-inch (Item 480382) Bad Boy, 1994/1995 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


4.90 4

The a-side is the bit hit "Big Poppa", making good use of the Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets" sample. But the real gem here is "Warning", which uses a sample from Isaac Hayes' amazing version of "Walk On By" and the eerie ending where Biggie gets shot. Produced by Easy Mo Bee, on "Warning" Biggie's flow sounds a lot like Craig Mack (or is it Craig Mack that sounds like Biggie...). (In a Bad Boy sleeve.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

"It's All About Me", the title track off his first LP, sounds a lot like his first hit "Crumbs Off The Table". Despite the subject matter, "Glory", from the movie of the same name features pretty uninspired rhymes and production. 12-inch, Vinyl record
