✈

WC and DJ Aladdin working together as the producer/DJ duo Low Profile – definitely paving the way for more famous west coast rap to come – on a still strong, long under-appreciated album on Profile! WC would go on to make a bigger name for himself with Madd Circle, West Side Connection and solo endeavors, but man, this early LP with the underrated Aladdin not only feels live a pivotal bridge from the mid-to-late 80s gritty west coast rap sound to the G Funk to come, it's simply a strong record that stands firmly on it's own. Funk-steeped street knowledge, without a ton of street posturing. Excellence! Includes the standouts "Funky Song" and "Pay Ya Dues", plus "Easy Money", "Keep Em' Flowin", "Aladdin's On A Rampage", "How Ya Livin" and "Make Room For The Dub B U" – plus the bonus track "No Mercy".  © 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.

Profile, 1988. Used
A once underappreciated later effort from the mighty Run DMC – with slightly harder hitting beats, and an overall terse style (hence the title) that was always more effective than it got credit for at the time – and it's ultimately the crew's last solid beginning-to-end LP! Of course ... CD

Run-DMC

King Of Rock
Profile, 1985. Used
Run-DMC's great second album, with rock hard production by Russell Simmons and classic cuts! It's fascinating to listen to this album all these years later, with the knowledge that this hungry hip hop act from Queens was so soon to conquer the world. Great stuff from a legendary crew! This is ... CD
Profile, 1997. Used
The late 90s classic from Sonny Cheeba & Geechi Suede –Camp Lo's benchmark Uptown Saturday Night! Certainly one of the finer hip hop LPs of '97, when we can return to over and over again, with great singles and stellar album tracks alike, such as "Luchin AKA This Is It", "C ... CD

Run-DMC

Run-DMC
Profile, 1984. Used
The classic self-titled LP that changed hip hop (and much of modern pop) forever! There's little we can add to the canon for this record. Run DMC ushered in a new era in contemporary urban culture, a harder hitting style of rap the bust out of the inner cities and into consciousness of an entire ... CD
Jive, 1989. Used
One of THE landmark hip hop albums – and the full length debut of great Tribe Called Quest! We hardly need to tell you about this classic – but it will always bear repeating. De La Soul might have kicked the door open on leftfield, anything goes artistry about a year or so earlier, ... CD
B-Boy, 1987. Used
A reissue of the late 80s classic album by the legendary JVC Force – an album that was almost impossible to find, even when it first came out. The original LP featured 10 mellow underground cuts from NYC, including "Strong Island", probably the best song on B-Boy Records, outside ... CD
Five Day Weekend, Mid 80s. Used
Classics from the mid 80s east coast hip hop master class – BDP, Just-Ice, T La Rock, Skinny Boys, Tricky Tee and Mantronix – benchmark singles, circa '86! This compilation was put together by Five Day Weekend as a soundtrack inspired by Big Fun In The Big Town – the little seen ... CD
Cold Busted, 2017. Used
Nice batch of timeless instrumental hip hop from Brandon* on Cold Busted! Dreamscape Part 4 has with lots of diverse style from track-to-track – from cinematic streams, to Afro-Latin guitar and horns, to tropical percussion, to jazz funk flutes – and anchored by classic boombap ... CD

Betty Ford Boys (Suff Daddy, Dexter, Brenk Sinatra

Leaders Of The Brew School
Melting Pot (Germany), 2013. Used
A timeless, crackling soul and west coast funk-inspired hip hop instrumentals set from Melting Pot Music supergroup Betty Ford Boys – the triple threat production trio of Suff Daddy, Dexter and Brenk Sinatra! Each one manages to serve up what we've dug to date from their earlier, separate ... CD
Octave (Japan), 1990s/2000s. Used
A compilation of hazy, headnodding material from Lootpack veteran and all around Cali indie allstar Kan Kick – put together by Jazzy Sport veteran DJ Choku for Japan's Octave label! It's a largely instrumental set, with a crackly, smoked out vibe reminiscient of some of Madlib's Beat ... CD

Masta Killa

Selling My Soul
Nature Sounds, 2012. Used
The first new solo effort from Wu Tang gamer Masta Killa in a few years – and a timeless bit of raw, soul sample-based hip hop from one the more underappreciated Wu MCs! It's thankfully light on guest rappers – save for an appearance by Kurpupt and a vault verse from ODB, Masta Killa ... CD
