Cypress Hill

CD (Item 540099) Columbia/Ruffhouse, 1991 — Condition: Used
$5.99 ...

CD

Cypress Hill's debut masterpiece – one of the biggest and best first albums in 90s hip hop! There's little we can add to the canon when it comes to describing this album's impact, but it's still pretty revelatory. Like other west coast rap heavies of the time, Cypress Hill documents real world street violence with a darkly comic sensibility, redefined usage of the word "blunt" forever more, and simply delivered one of the most influential rap (or rock. . . considering the astonishing crossover success) albums of the decade. "How I Could Just Kill A Man", "Hand On The Pump", "Hole In The Head", "Real Estate", "Stoned Is The Way Of The Walk", "Phunky Feel One", "Pigs", "Latin Lingo", "Something For The Blunted", "Psychobeatbuckdown" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

The second major label set from The Roots, and what many consider their first and definitely not their last) irrefutable classic!

Tommy Boy/Traffic, 1986. Used
A classic from Stetsasonic – who truly were On Fire in their prime! It seemed like Stet were the group that could do it all in the early days, with live instrumentation, beat boxing, and Prince Paul on the 1's and 2's. This LP's a classic of bygone days, will we ever feel this vibe again? ... CD

Latyrx

Album
Quannum, 1997. Used
The waaaay overlooked Latyrx LP! Lateef & Lyrics Born pretty much laid the groundwork for what was going to be some of the most adventurous underground hip hop to come out of Cali in the mid-to-late 90s – opening the door for Blackalicious, the J5 and others. DJ Shadow's great production ... CD

Some Old Bullsh!t
Grand Royal, 1982. Used
This set compiles the early, pre-Def Jam recordings by The Beasties – some of which are not hip hop at all, and feature the band playing loud and fast hardcore. Fortunately, though, the album includes the incredible Cooky Puss e.p. – which features the original "Cooky Puss" ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used
A classic Kessel album for Contemporary – one that features Barney's guitar in a set of slightly larger backings, all arranged by Barney himself! The approach is a bit different from some of Kessel's more stripped-down albums of the time – as Barney works with instrumentation that ... CD
