Indie 500

CD (Item 945259) It's A Wonderful World Music Group, 2015 — Condition: Used
$8.99 ...

CD

A masterful joint effort from a pair of hip hop's most respected veterans – legendary rhymer Talib Kweli and innovative, gritty soul loving producer 9th Wonder! The prolific Kweli is prominent on the mic, and 9th Wonder continues to stay true to his soulful pedigree, while keeping it fresh and timeless – but what makes Indie 500 even nicer is they also serve here as hosts for a top notch collective of fellow independent-minded figures. Guests include Slug, Brother Ali, Pharoah Monch, Rapsody, Kendra Ross and others – plus producers Khrysis and E Jones. Which isn't to say the co-headliners take a back seat – they're just excellent hosts is all! Includes "Which Side Are You On" with Tee Poe & Kendra Ross, "Pay Ya Dues" with Problem & Bad Lucc, "Prego" with Pharoahe Monch and Slug from Atmosphere, "Understand" with Brother Ali & Planet Asia, "Lo-Fi" with Niko Is and more. 13 tracks in all.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Still sealed with the hype sticker.)

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.

Lewis, 2005. Used
Edan returns with a new set of his sample heavy wizardry – this time out steeped heavily in late 60s pysch out flourishes, yet still sporting the thickest breakbeats available. His rhyme style is both ridiculous and genius – with tongue twists that pay homage and blast forward ... CD

Prelude EP

A pretty sharp introductory note from Mighty Underdogs – the indie hip hop supergroup featuring Blackalicious MC Gift Of Gab, Latyrx gamer Lateef The Truth Speaker, and Crown City Rocker Headnotic! The crew brings some pretty tight boom bap, with more than enough loopy, but maturing Cali ... CD

One of the greatest jam session albums on Verve! Although some of the label's "big horn talent" albums tended to be a bit snoozy, this one crackles with energy, and features three different classes of boppers working together perfectly on long, lively tracks with Ray Bryant on piano, ... CD

Marvin Gaye

Midnight Love
Columbia, 1982. Used
Marvin Gaye's last album ever – and a sensuous batch of grooves that almost return him to the sound of Let's Get It On! The style here is a bit more modern, but the sound is still great – a smoother approach to soul than most of Gaye's contemporaries at the time, recorded in a way that ... CD
