Nat Love

LP (Item 962656) Closed Sessions, 2016 — Condition: Near Mint-

Distinctive, bedroom studio-made hip hop from Kweku Collins – doing his own thing in both style and practice – and delivering one of the best independent hip hop records of the mid teens! There's a lot of layers here you could pick apart, and find something brilliant in each one. In the vocals realm he rhymes, sings, and speaks his mind in a raw, poetic, purely introspective way. On the production front you can feel he deeply he's absorbed myriad underground rap and soul styles over his still young life, but he filters it all through a unique, original lens all his own. We really get the feeling this is the dawn of a tremendous talent! Includes "Stupid Rose", "Vanilla Skies" feat Taylor Bennett, "Ego Killed Romance" feat Jamilla Woods, "Everever (Oasis1)", "Ghost", "Death Of A Salesman", "1:30 Curbside", "Outsiders", "The Last" and "The Rain That Wouldn't Save".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.
