Warlock, 1989. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
The Tuff Crew burst out of the Philly scene with this overlooked gem from the end of the 80s – an album that may not be top of the history books, but which still has all the raw creative energy of those great indie years before the first big assault on hip hop by the major labels!

Fresh, 1989. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Crazy noise, and a crazy great album from Stezo – really the one and only set that the man ever gave us – but a gem that really represents that great shift in hip hop lyricism in the generation of Rakim, EPMD, and Audio two! The production is wonderful – full of raw samples, but ... read more CD

Just-Ice wasn't actually part of the old school – although to some, the 1986 release might seem pretty darn close – but he definitely does a good job here of keeping things nice and clean on his classic debut!
