Gang StarrStep In The Arena ... CD
Chrysalis, 1991. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
One of the finest early efforts from Premier and Guru – their second album – and it's not only one of Gang Starr's greatest, it's one of the greatest hip hop albums, period. Guru's mic presence is as sharply on point as ever here, and the Primo production is also at peak precision. Step Into The Area really encapsulates just about everything we love most soul beats and samples era of hip hop. Absolutely essential – and filled with killer cuts like "Step In The Arena", "Game Plan", "Just To Get A Rep", "Check The Technique", and "Who's Gonna Take The Weight". 18 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ Gang StarrHard To Earn ... CD
EMI, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Gang Starr at pretty close to peak level here on 1994's Hard To Earn – and rather than continue to ride the waves they made on the previous couple classic albums, Guru sharpens the lyrical tone just a bit – spitting some more incisive rhymes over apporpriately gritty soul jazz beats from Primo. Tracks include the classic "DWYCK" featuring Nice & Smooth – which is just about our favorite Gang Starr track ever, to be honest – plus "Speak Ya Clout" featuring Jeru and Lil Dap, "Mass Appeal", "Code Of The Streets", "Brainstorm", "Tonz O Gunz", "Suckas Need Bodyguards", "Blowin Up The Spot", "Mostly Tha Voice", "F.A.L.A.", "Now You're Mine", "Comin For Datazz", "Aiight Chill...", "The Planet", and more.

✨✧ Gang StarrMoment Of Truth ... CD
Noo Trybe, 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
A later effort from Gang Starr that's just as dope as their earlier classics! By the late 90s, a lot of their of Gang Starr's peers of similar vintage were starting to fall off creatively and commercially – hence the title – but Guru and Premier would have none of that. Guru's rhymes are as dexterous and on point ever, and Premier's tried-and-true gritty beats and jazzy samples style is also at near peak strength. A bit underrated in the Gang Starr canon, but it's truly top notch work. Includes "You Know My Steez", "Rep Grows Bigga", "Work", "Make Em Pay" with Krumb Snatcha, "Above The Clouds" with Inspectah Deck, "Betrayal" with a sharp turn by Scarface, "The Militia" with Big Shug & Freddie Foxxx, "BI Vs Friendship" with MOP and more. 20 tracks in all!

✨✧ Gang StarrOne Of The Best Yet ... LP
Gang Starr Entertainment, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A new Gang Starr album nearly a decade after the Guru passed away, and a surprisingly strong one - One Of The Best Yet might not come really come close to genre redefining classics like Step In The Arena or Daily Operation, but it when it comes to careful assembled posthumous projects, this one makes a strong case for its title! Premier is doing his oft-imitated, rarely matched thing here, really doing justice for his departed partner's unreleased rhymes. Guests include Q-Tip, MOP, Jeru The Damaja, Big Shug & Freddie Foxxx, and titles include "Bad Name", "Hit Man", "From a Distance", "So Many Rappers", "Family & Loyalty", "Bring It Back Here" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Jean Jacques PerreyMoog Indigo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vanguard, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
An incredible record of funky moogy grooves – possibly one of the best of the genre! Jean Jacques Perry really outdid himself on this record – going past the simple cut ups of his work with Gershon Kingsley, and hitting a style that was more groovy, and more song oriented. The best example of this is the album's fantastic funky tune "EVA" – a monster break/moog cut that's been sampled by Gang Starr for "Just To Get A Rep", and more than a few other artists over the years! The rest of the record's just as great – and cuts include "Soul City", "18th Century Puppet", "Gossipo Perpetuo", and "Passport To The Future". LP, Vinyl record album
(HQ-180 pressing – by RTI!)

Positive KStep Up Front (3 Heineken Technique, Milk & Edit-Milk D mix, voc, inst)/Nobody Move ... 12-inch
First Priority, 1988. Good ... $2.99
To us, Positive K is one of the doper late-80's MC's that people have always slept on. Nothing hardcore or extra-underground, but still straight-up hip hop. The production on "Step Up Front" has that friendly-but-still-dope Audio Two sound, and used the "Bumpin Bus Stop" sample years before Gang Starr. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a plain sleeve. Label has a name in marker.)

✨✧ VariousLA Originals ... LP
Universal, 1990s. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99 26.98
A soundtrack for a documentary, but one that's heavy on hip hop classics from the 90s – and not all of them by west coast groups either! In fact, even if you like the film, you might be better suited to think of this one as a collection of classics from back in the day – hard not to, with cuts that include "Mass Appeal" by Gang Starr, "Hand On The Pump" by Cypress Hill, "Children's Story" by Slick Rick, "Fight The Power" by Public Enemy, "Disco Inferno" by 50 Cent, "Juice" by Eric B & Rakim, "Gin & Juice" by Snoop Dogg, "Bust A Move" by Young MC, "Lean Back" by Terror Squad, "Slam" by Onyx, and "Da Rockwilder" by Method Man & Redman.

✨✧ VariousSmithsonian Anthology Of Hip Hop & Rap (9CD box set with 300 page book) ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 9CDs ... Out Of Stock
A huge dip into the history of hip hop – in a set that's something of a groundbreaking effort from the folks at the Smithsonian! If we're honest, we'll tell you that we're old enough to remember a time when folks thought that hip hop was just a fad – when it was a musical style that would disappear in just a few short years. But now, all these many decades later, the form has had such an impact on American culture that the Smithsonian Institute is giving it some official sort of due – something we never would have believed back in the 80s! The package is huge – 9CDs with a whopping 129 tracks in all, and a 300 page book that supports the recordings with an insane amount of notes, photos, and all sorts of other information – alongside a track list that was put together by folks who include Questlove, 9th Wonder, Chuck D, Jeff Chang, and MC Lyte! The set is especially great on old school tracks up through the golden era hip hop years – but also moves into the 21st century too – and artists include Treacherous Three, Afrika Bambaataa, Fearless Four, Cold Crush Brothers, Herbie Hancock, Run DMC, Fatback, Sugarhill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Funky Four +1, T La Rock, Schoolly D, Beastie Boys, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Eric B & Rakim, Mantronix, Stetsasonic, Audio Two, Big Daddy Kane, MC Lyte, Marley Marl, Tone Loc, Jungle Brothers, NWA, Public Enemy, Slick Rick, 3rd Bass, De La Soul, Queen Latifa, DOC, 2 Live Crew, Dr Dre, Sir Mix A Lot, Digable Planets, Positive K, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Naughty By Nature, Black Sheep, Tribe Called Quest, Geto Boys, Pharcyde, 2Pac, Warren G, Gang Starr, Notorious BIG, and many many more!
