Yes Lawd!

CD (Item 865079) Stones Throw, 2016 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge's full length debut as a duo – and the most triumphant Stones Throw record in years! To this (still early) point in young .Paak's career, his voice has already proved to be a prime vessel for natural grit and mood, if not gamechanger songwriting, best paired with crackling, funk-steeped hip hop soul production. That's the case whether he's producing himself, working with a giant like Dr. Dre, or paired as he is here with Knxledge. Knx's production is a perfect backdrop – beats out front in the mix, classic Cali sample funk and soul framing the vocals – with a lingering haze holding it all together amazingly well! Intentional or not, Yes Lawd channels earlier Stones Throw classic LPs like Jaylib and Madvillain in the way it pairs distinctive contemporary talents for a joint duo effort, and after .Paak's solo shot Malibu, it's his second potential classic in a single year! Includes "Livvin", "Wngs", "What More Can I Say", "Kutless", "Lyk Dis", "Can't Stop", "Get Bigger", "Scared Money", "Suede", "Starlite", "Sidepiece", "Jodi", "Link Up", "Another Time", "Fkku" and more.  © 1996-2021, 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.

Maxwell

Embrya
Columbia, 1998. Used
The second album by smooth soul singer Maxwell – and every bit as great as the first! Although the vibe is modern, the sound is quite classic – with lush warm arrangements that perfectly wrap up Maxwell's sweet and soulful vocals. The record picks up a tradition that was left off by ... CD
Polygram (Japan), 1998. Used
A real turning point for Monday Michiru – a set that has the Japanese singer moving into more complex rhythms than some of the straighter soul of her initial releases – really keeping things interesting as she stretches out lyrically too! Monday arranged and produced most of the record ... CD
Dome/Heads Up, 2008. Used
No beach music grooves here – just sublimely soulful work from Incognito – played with the sort of perfection we've come to expect in their albums! The title's a tribute to the sunny grooves heard by Bluey in his youth in Mauritius, and the album was recorded with a similarly warm feel ... CD

Incognito

Best Of Incognito
Suonaphone/Blue Thumb, 1990s. Used
With 13 tracks, including edits and remixes. CD

Lizz Wright

Salt
Verve, 2003. Used
A sweet young jazz singer – steeped in the traditions of Dee Dee Bridgewater and Dianne Reeves, striking out on her own in a really solid debut album! The set's got a warm, jazzy feel – lots of keyboards and piano in the backings, but done in a way that lifts up the voice of Lizz on a ... CD
WB, 1996. Used
Includes tracks by Luniz, Dru Down, Tevin Campbell, R Kelly "Freak Tonight", Adina Howard, H-Town (we kinda like their update of the Persuaders classic, even with the Roger Troutman vocoder in the chorus), Eric Benet "Let's Stay Together" (surprisingly not a cover of the Al ... CD

Verve (Japan), 2003. Used
The Holiday in the title is Billie Holiday – as Japanese singer Akiko pays tribute to Lady Day in this really sweet set of tracks! The range of styles is what really makes the record work – as some tunes are done in the spare traditional style of Billie's original recordings, while ... CD

Big Daddy Kane

Prince Of Darkness
Cold Chillin/Reprise, 1991. Used
Not the great early Kane, but not the sad later Kane either. Includes "The Lover In You", "Git Bizzy", "Raw '91", "Prince Of Darkness", "Ooh, Aah, Nah-Nah-Nah", "Brother Brother", "Groove With It", "I'm Not Ashamed", ... CD
Babygrande, 2003. Used
An EP from Jean Grae, one of the best female MCs out there right now. Jean is a straight-up vocal purist, keeping her rhymes way out in the mix and the clear steerage department of the sound. There are 6 listed tracks but nearly 45 minutes worth of unlisted bonus material – essentially ... CD
