Boogie Down Productions — Ghetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP 11.99

Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, concise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, toughest, street conscious hip hop to come. It's a unique snapshot of the time, too, coming at the crossroads of hip hop's rise from the 80s streets to the mainstream, with KRS One standing for realness right there at the brink. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". 4 bonus tracks on this CD version: "Jack Of Spades (Extended Remix)", "You Must Learn (Live From Caucus Mountain Remix)", "Jack Of Spades (Instrumental)" and "Jack Of Spades (BDP Movie Mix)".  © 1996-2018, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Ruthless/Sony, 1991. Used
EP with 6 full-length tracks and 3 interludes/edits, with the nice deep West Coast funk production like their first LP, not like the later G-funk droning keyboard style: "Playlude", "Play Your Game", "Dose of The Megaflex", "4 The Funk Of It", "Wicked&qu ... CD
Rush/Sony (Japan), 1992. Used
The stellar full length debut from Redman – who was just then breaking out solo after honing his craft as part of the EPMD Hit Squad clique – and rose pretty quickly to the upper echelon of early 90s MCs! The masterstroke of Whut? Thee Album is the way that Redman balances a gritty, ... CD
Secondary Protocol
Stones Throw, 2003. Used
A proper hip hop album on Stones Throw – with Wildchild making good on the underground promise of the stellar "Code Red" single, and Madlib's tried-and-true beats, bizarro samples, and classic scratch work laying the blueprint. With all of Stones Throw's efforts to resurrect the ... CD
Masters Of Illusion
Threshold, 2000. Used
This album was produced entirely by Kutmasta Kurt, featuring rhymes by Kool Keith and Motion Man. Yep, ANOTHER Kool Keith project! This one has it's hilarious moments, as they all do, but Kutmasta Kurt's the star of the show this time around, with head nodding production throughout. Includes ... CD

Full Circle
Hiero Imperium, 2003. Used
Del, Souls Of Mischief, Casual and Pep Love return for a damn fine new full length. As if you need us to tell you, the Hieros are one of Cali's longest running crews – and Full Circle is, for the most part, a pretty laidback affair. Pep Love really seems to kind of stand out as the leader ... CD
Legacy Of Blood
Babygrande, 2004. Used
Tracks include "The Age Of Sacred Terror", "Scars Of The Crucifix", "Saviorself" feat Killah Priest, "On The Eve Of War feat GZA, "The Worst", "And So It Burns", "The Philosophy Of Horror" and more. CD
1st Class
Matador, 2002. Used
It may not be the BeAllEndAll that the Matador hype machine is trying to cook up, but Large Professor's waaaay too long in the making first LP (first to be officially released, anyway) is a very solid effort, and a strong, raw head bumper all the way through. Nothing fancy, just tried and true hip ... CD
Organ-izing
Jazzland/OJC, 1960. Used
An excellent bit of soul jazz – completely rare in the original pressing, and one of the few early albums ever cut by organist Melvin Rhyne! Rhyne first came to prominence as the organist with Wes Montgomery – and he hailed from Montgomery's hometown of Indianapolis, and had the ... CD
Gratitude
Columbia, 1975. Used
Great stuff! Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is ... CD
