Mr. Green is a renowned hip-hop producer who has crafted tracks for the likes of Jedi Mind Tricks, Snoop Doog, A$AP Ferg, The Roots, Freddie Gibbs, KRS-One, Bodega Bamz, R.A. The Rugged Man, Deniro Farrar, Raz Fresco, and many more. Now, the two artists are joining forces for a new collaborative EP, FLYGOD Is Good… All The Time. While this is their first time working together, the chemistry is obvious, and the respect is mutual.“Westside Gunn is incredible, a true mastermind,” says Mr. Green. “He has this sound that is completely one-of-a-kind, just gives you that indescribable feeling we are all looking for in hip-hop these days.”Mixed and mastered by legendary engineer Eddie Sancho (known for his work with Gang Starr, Jay-Z, Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., Alchemist, M.O.P., Dilated Peoples, and many more), the EP showcases some of the best work to date from both Green and Gunn.“This is a true WSG art piece,” says Westside Gunn. “Everything I do is under a microscope, so it gotta be A1.”

Limited colored vinyl edition in custom tri-fold jacket including 12-page photo booklet!The people’s voice of Venice Beach, Evidence, has returned to deliver his third solo album, “Weather or Not”. Since the Grammy Award-winning artist’s last solo release, “Cats & Dogs”, he’s delivered some remarkable group projects, including Step Brothers’ “Lord Steppington” with close ally Alchemist, and Directors of Photography with seminal supergroup Dilated Peoples. He’s also immersed himself into his studio, producing beats for a wide range of artists that includes Vince Staples, Fashawn, Roc Marciano, Madchild, Defari and more. By now, it should be clear the seasoned veteran has no plans of slowing, and no hopes of satiating his hunger. “Weather or Not” represents the fourth and final chapter in Ev’s Weatherman series before beginning the next saga, but this chapter will be remembered as the finest. The album features an all-star lineup of guests and friends, including Slug (Atmosphere), Rakaa (Dilated Peoples), Alchemist, Styles P, Rapsody, Jonwayne, Defari, Krondon, Khrysis, Mach Hommy and Catero. While Evidence holds his own on the boards, he’s also tapped a stellar cast of producers to share duties with, including Alchemist, DJ Premier, Nottz, DJ Babu, Twiz The Beat Pro, Sam I Yam and Budgie. As Evidence modestly suggests, quoting a MC Lyte classic, this new album is even “better than before, as if that was possible.” LP Packaging includes a custom-built tri-fold jacket including blue colored 2LP vinyl, 12-page photo booklet containing work from famed photographer Stephen Vanasco, metallic printed pockets and free digital download card.

Damu The Fudgemunk & Flex Mathews
Dreams & Vibrations
2LP | 2018 | US | Original (Redefinition)
34,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
As promised, Damu the Fudgemunk and Flex Mathews' full length album is here following their recent Burners EP. Entitled, "Dreams & Vibrations." The duo has assembled an ode to their love of Hip Hop after a longtime friendship of over 15 years. Complete with all the essential elements of quality rap music, their true school approach features lively lyrical performances, in your face scratching, booming beats and a few extra surprises to garnish their 14 track offering. Speaking of surprises, the project includes the single Burners which guest stars California rap pillar, Blu of Blu & Exile fame and Boston's finest himself, Insight (Y Society). The album was produced entirely by Damu the Fudgemunk with the exception of two specially arranged production appearances from the legendary DJ Spinna on the tracks "Double Helix" and "I Love it". When asked about the album, Flex and Damu are very proud of their creation. Both hope this effort will entertain listeners with their brand of Hip Hop for years to come. Though the DJ/Producer & MC formula has been very significant throughout the genre's lifetime on wax, Mathews and the Fudgemunk feel that this particular record stands on it's own and showcases a dynamic unique to their chemistry. The range of sounds, textures, samples and interludes are woven between the artists skill sets of beats & rhymes. Flex is a true student of the craft and his passion for words will easily captivate over the exceptional production from Damu the Fudgemunk. This record will be a commodity for Damu's fans. Some of his best and most ambitious musical ideas to date are being unveiled on this 2LP. Aside from musical direction, Damu's presence is heard all over this project from guest verses on two tracks, various adlibs, long turntable solos and complex musical displays. Also worth mentioning: unlike a lot of today's collabs, this album was recorded with both artists working together in the same studio. The result is a lively, cohesive sound that will reward the listener who plays the album from start to finish in one sitting. Without a doubt the team compliments each other. If you've been dreaming of the right vibe, look no further. "Dreams & Vibrations" is set for positive impact on your nearest turntable.

27,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limited edition for Record Store Day 2018!Only one copy per customer!When Ruff Draft saw its initial release in 2003, J Dilla possessed production skills on par with anyone in hip-hop – technicallyand creatively. “At the top of his game,” says longtime friend and collaborator, Karriem Riggins. After years of building whilemodestly deferring to others of both greater and lesser notoriety, Dilla finally completed the first solo endeavor on his ownlabel, entirely on his own terms. The significance of such an autonomous success often gets overlooked, and partly accountsfor why Ruff Draft is one of the lesser-referenced entries in Dilla’s oeuvre. “It’s a mysterious little project,” says his mother,Maureen Yancey. “But out of his entire career, that was the happiest time.”Prior to recording the EP, Dilla found himself at a crossroads. Estranged from his label, MCA, and separated from the motherof his youngest daughter, frustration abounded both personally and professionally. Dilla spent parts of 2002 and 2003 workingon an album for MCA that featured his rapping over contributions from other producers with whom he had connected andwhose music he respected. At the time, he was known primarily for his beats, yet reviled for his MCing by most anyone notfrom his hometown of Detroit. The project was to be an intentional freak of the industry.The project would go on to spur his collaborative album with Madlib, Jaylib, and would first showcase the template that hewould take to his greatest heights with 2006’s Donuts. The Stones Throw reissue of Ruff Draft from 2008 featured remixes ofthe songs from the album, done without Dilla’s involvement. This version of the album takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixesof the album and restores his vision for the project. “Straight from the mothafuckin’ cassette,” as he phrased the sound hewas going for on the EP’s intro. It is buttressed by unreleased tracks and is presented in two versions: LP one is the EP as itwas originally released; LP 2 is the alternate version that Dilla had for the project. Author Ronnie Reese expands upon hisoriginal liner notes to further tell Dilla’s story, in a booklet complete with never before published photographs fromthe Ruff Draft photo session.

1990
2LP | 2018 | US | Original (Family Groove)
27,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
The discovery and release of The Nonce ‘1990’ is an important milestone recorded during the Golden Age of Hip-Hop. Recognized as innovators of the LA Hip-Hop Underground, The Nonce was formed by two seventeen year olds, Nouka Basetype aka Sach and the late Yusef “Afloat” Mohammed. As The Nonce, the duo was part of the Project Blowed collective.Just after High School graduation in 1990, the young duo was given the chance to go into a professional studio. Their dreams of a record deal were soon dashed after the production company raised objections to their artistic choices. Unwilling to meet the demands, The Nonce walked away from the project, leaving behind the Masters of the very tracks that make up The Nonce ‘1990’.Daniel Borine, of the independent Family Groove label, discovered the lost material for this album in 2017. Borine rescued the Master tapes from the studio where they were first recorded and subsequently misplaced, (but not forgotten), since 1990. Sach had assumed the tapes were destroyed or thrown in the dumpster bin.These 14 rare tracks by The Nonce, predate their critically acclaimed 1993 single, Mix Tapes and the classic World Ultimate from 1995.Borine returned the found tapes to Sach with the idea to mix multitracks from the 2” tape master tapes and issue the album. The goal was to preserve the original sound from the era in which it was created. For that, they turned to producer and recording engineer, Kamal Humphrey, of Flying Carpet Studios in Redondo Beach. Humphrey mixed the tracks on the SSL console that had belonged to legendary 1980’s Producer, Maurice Starr and to Atlanta’s LaFace label of Outkast, TLC and Usher fame before reaching Humphrey’s Flying Carpet Studios.What was once thought to be lost forever is now preserved for generations. The Nonce 1990 available through Family Groove Records.

Just about filler-free, the album strutsintensely and with purpose, as Eiht throws tales of Calistreet life at fans for an hour straight, almost withouta break.This solo marathon is given a respite only once, withScarface’s guest spot on “N 2 Deep,” an excellenthood roller supported by a soulful guitar lick sampledfrom Lyn Collins’ “Do Your Thing.” Elsewhere, Eiht rollsalone and intensely, on cuts like the classic smashsingle “Hood Took Me Under”; the album’s secondsingle and Tim Dog attack “Who’s Fu**ing Who?”; thehometown big-up “Compton 4 Life”; and hustle taleslike “Jack Mode” and “I Gots To Get Over.”After this album, Eiht released more classics under hisown name, and with similar fan worship. It was thecontinuation of a legendary career and Music ToDriveby still ranks high on anyone’s “West CoastLegends” playlist.

Limited edition for Record Store Day 2018!While hip-hop was experiencing a creative revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the genre was still somewhat restricted geographically, primarily dominated by New York City and Los Ange-les. Acclaimed artist Common was among the first successful rappers from elsewhere, officially putting Chicago on the hip-hop map with this debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar?. Released in 1992, the album is a vintage boom-bap masterpiece, with famed producer No I.D. behind the boards on 12 of 13 tracks. It also marks the beginning of a storied career, as Common would go on to release three gold albums, create classics with the likes of J Dilla and Kanye West, win multiple Grammys and even an Academy Award, and land several major roles as an actor. Long out-of-print, Can I Bor-row A Dollar? is now back on 2LP vinyl while supplies last. This 25th anniversary edition also includes a bonus 7” featuring the rare B-side “Can-I-Bust” and the instrumental for the single “Breaker 1/9”.

Everything's Fine

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limited edition vinyl!When you hear the phrase, “everything’s fine,” we immediately understand it as emotional shorthand. In daily life, we depend on those perfunctory clichés (hope all is well, good to hear from you, etc.) to spare ourselves from the psychological unpacking that the truth requires. For that, there’s art. For that, there’s Everything’s Fine from Jean Grae and Quelle Chris, a jagged, acerbic odyssey that brilliantly riffs on this dystopian zeitgeist.The thing is, anyone without a lobotomy and a toxic red hat understands that things are definitely not fine. The crush of modern anxiety, the late capitalist scramble to survive, and the brain warp rot of social media has left most of us half crazy.“We have a dickhead for a president, and before our eyes, racial, religious, and sexual identity rights are moving backwards,” says New York’s (by way of Detroit) Quelle Chris. “Money is still a thing (I’m waiting for Star Trek life to start). There’s war, your kids may be sick, but if someone randomly asks "how's it going?" most people will say "fine."Released on Mello Music Group, this album replaces that reflexive cliché with honest and eloquent tangents. It’s specific and subtle in its execution, achieving equilibrium between lackadaisical detours to smell the flowers and the frantic acknowledgement that there’s an inferno raging outside.If the great political albums are often grim polemics, Everything’s Fine achieves its goals partially through withering satire. See the opening skit, a Prince Paul-style game show in which three contestants (including a futuristic robot) numbly croak that everyone’s fine despite flying high on every imaginable drug, crying themselves to sleep at night and being unemployed for a decade and a half despite having a Master’s in Fine Arts. I promise it’s much funnier than it reads off a screen.“We’re both perfectionists in different ways,” Jean Grae describes their working relationship. “We both see huge pictures and concepts. So while listening, pay attention to the subtleties, the nuances, the dissonance and the harmony. The conversations and pieces of ourselves in the words, the flows, the beats. All of the open spaces. .Be uncomfortable and be okay with that. Be layered and be okay with that. Be angry and be okay.”It’s rare to find a record where two rappers are so seamlessly intertwined. Yes, that’s partially a by-product of the teamwork that goes into being in any normal relationship where you wake, sleep, and dream together. But the album also bears the hallmarks of two singular creative geniuses trading bars, collaborating on beats, and combining fun with internal therapy and external observations. It features indelible cameos from Denmark Vessey, Grammy Award winner Anna Wise, Your Old Droog and Big Tone, as well as comics Ashok “Dap” Kondabolu, Michael Che, Nick Offerman, and Hannibal Burress.In the streaming era, we tend to naturally overlook albums that require multiple listens. This is a record that will grab you on first listen, but it’s greatness only reveals itself through its careful construction, slick wordplay, and esoteric allusions.On “Zero,” Jean artfully references Rachmaninoff and The Donner Party in the first two bars. With “Scoop A Dirt,” she name-drops the Babadook alongside the truth bomb that Friends was little more than a whitewashed rip off off Living Single. Meanwhile, Quelle balances boasts about bags of cash the size of Chris Christie with poignant existential laments. Somewhere in between, Jean will stealthily slip in jewels like, “it took me until my 30s just to put my finger on it, once you accept the knowledge/solace doesn’t follow/honest.”It’s a record with only a couple antecedents: De La Soul is Dead, Organized Konfusion’s Stress: The Extinction Agenda, Blackstar, and maybe Cannibal Ox’s Cold Vein. Yet it doesn't sound remotely like any of them. It’s spontaneous and free, yet refined and meticulous. Even if everything is abject, it’s a reminder that music can transcend.“This album is full of our minds. Our hearts. Our love for production, and words. flow and a lot of musicality,” Jeans says. “We don’t approach topics, issues, writing, or making beats in the same way. I’m harsh, blunt, quick, technical, I arrange classically and play more than I sample. I make joints with 80 tracks. I’m layers upon layers upon layers. Quelle is patient, he’s kinder. More loose and minimalistic. He makes sounds work together that shouldn’t fucking work. How? I have no idea. These are dreams within dreams.”

Limited edition for Record Store Day 2018!To celebrate Record Store Day 2018, Ohio-based Funk/Soul label Colemine Records, and the Brooklyn-based indie Hip-Hop label Coalmine Records, have teamed up for a limited-edition 7-inch release, “Head Above Water.” The double label venture boasts a new Soul jazz groove from the LA-based Funk/Soul collective, The Rugged Nuggets, backed with a reinterpretation of the track, flipped by Coalmine’s go-to producer, Small Professor, which features blistering verses from Smoke DZA, Fly Anakin and Blu, with cuts by the incomparable DJ Revolution. Side A, as referenced on the Blue Note-flipped donuts as “COLE SIDE,” effortlessly demonstrates why the The Rugged Nuggets are the newest collective to carry the torch of instrumental music. Emerging from the tight-knit Los Angeles Funk/Soul community, the 7-piece live band deliver a sound on “Head Above Water” that’s as inspired, realized and refreshing as the city landscape and culture that the musicians reside within. Side B, as noted on the buoy-themed donut as “COAL SIDE,” represents a coast-to-coast Hip-Hop flight as DZA kicks things off by putting on for his hometown of Harlem in a major way. His verse is pure braggadociotinged flames and brimming with bars, among them his NY Jetsreferencing closing line of “I’m Broadway Joe with my mink on drag.” After Rev shreds the first hook chock full of quotables from Mos Def, Nas, M.O.P., 50 Cent, AZ and more, Mutant Academy’s Fly Anakin picks up right where DZA left off and delivers a relentless stream of rhymes. The VA native continues the stylish boasts when he spits, “They got a warrant for my style,” amidst a flurry of raps that demand repeated listens. That same sentiment applies to Blu’s verse, which ends “Head Above Water” with thoughtful lyrics. The Los Angeles stalwart waxes poetic about trying to make enough bread to raise his daughter and “teach her how to bodyslam Sgt. Slaughter”—the perfect blend of wisdom and bravado that’s made Blu a legend. This sure to be collector’s item, which boasts a double-sided insert designed by Joe Buck, is now available exclusively for Record Store Day. Both the music and partnership embody the spirit of RSD, which emanates feelings of community and soul over the bullshit…cause we’re all just tryin’ to rise up and keep our heads above water.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limited 25th Anniversary Edition on double vinyl!At a time when hip-hop was determined to snap your neck, a young, hip trio from Brooklyn (by way of Seattle, Philly, and Brazil) conspired on an uncommonly smooth new sound and freaky way of speak, a titanically chill expression of Black bohemia loaded with jazz idiom and a subversive Marxist bent—and pushed it worldwide via an undeniable crossover hit.Digable Planets’ 1993 debut, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space), unexpected to all involved, produced a massive radio hit in “Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)”, which won the 1994 Grammy for Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group. Unduly lumped into an “alternative rap” subgenre they chafed at, the Dig Plans were dismissed by some as one-hit wonders, coming out of nowhere; but the Digable Planets concept, and what became Reachin’, had been in the works for close to five years, as group leader Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler wrote music and soaked up game in multiple cities, navigating the industry of hip-hop’s golden age.In the end, Butler, Mary Anne “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira, and Craig “Doodlebug” Irving came together to create a seamlessly articulated vision of urbane hiphop cool with an uncommonly literary bent that subtly pushed the hip-hop genre’s frames of reference and added breadth to rap music’s burgeoning political philosophy. Drawing on inspiration from Butler’s jazzbo father, the Black Panthers, Jose Luis-Borges, the Last Poets, and Jimi Hendrix, Reachin’ posited a theory of “universal beats”, narrated by three unearthly MC’s that had “split to Earth to resurrect the funk”, assuming curious, arthropodic aliases—a nod to the natural collective action of the insect world. In just four years the crew would record two beloved and ambitious LPs before disbanding.Out of print on wax domestically since 1993, Reachin’ captures one of the last gasps of rap music’s jazzy, upbeat adolescence in the early 90’s—those warm, blissed-out grooves every bit as slick as when they were laid way back when. Put this on, roll up with your crew and bug out again with the insect tribe.This first vinyl reissue comes as an expanded double LP for improved sound including deep liner notes by Larry Mizell Jr. interviewing Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler.The 2LP is housed in a deluxe wide spine jacket with booklet, printed inner sleeves and lyrics included for the first time!

We are presently in the post-Marcberg era of Rap. After Roc Marciano released his solo opus in Spring 2010, a new continuum began which gathered tremendous momentum in 2012 following the release of his Metal Clergy compatriot Ka’s “Grief Pedigree” and Roc’s amazingly concise sophomore effort Reloaded. Subsequently, a divergent path opened in modern Rap heavily influenced by the sonics, tone, and aesthetic of those three projects. Since then Roc Marciano has released a critically acclaimed producer album (Marci Beaucoup) bookended by the release of his project “The Pimpire Strikes Back” in multiple formats. In the years since this string of releases, a new crop of emcees and producers emerged heavily inspired and influenced by Roc’s oeuvre while many others’ careers have been left doing the running man in their wave…With multiple modern Rap classics already under his Ferragamo belt, last year Roc Marciano liberated the first half of his two part project titled Rosebudd’s Revenge. If the initial offering showcased Marc re-establishing himself as the innovator of the present Rap wave then “RR2 - the Bitter Dose” will cement Roc Marciano’s status as its linchpin. From the opening bars of “Respected” to when “Power” finally fades out he fashions another top to bottom high end sonic experience that will be both envied and emulated for years to come while he administers a double dose of pimpin’.Production on “RR2: The Bitter Dose” is handled by Roc Marciano in addition to Animoss (Arch Druids) (on “Bohemian Grove” & “Happy Endings”), Don Cee (Arch Druids) (on “C.V.S” & “Major League”) and Element) (on “Respected” & “67 Lobby”). Knowledge The Pirate appears on both “Bohemian Grove” and “Major League” while Action Bronson contributes a verse to “Corniche.” Whether it comes to hard bars, slick talk or hustler wisdom Roc Marciano is unmatched. The Bitter Dose is nothing more than an American master lecturing a captive audience. It’s a guidebook on how to manipulate the English language and convey ideas and concepts and visuals that will evoke a wide range of emotions in listeners. The wait is over. Thank God for Roc Marci.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limited edition for Record Store Day 2018!Audacity is hip-hop group Ugly Duckling’s fourth LP and arguably the most ambitious album of their respected recording career. Up to that point in Ugly Duckling’s run, the band was mostly known for their humorous brand of classic rap but on Audacity, Ugly Duckling offered a more musically and emotionally challenging collection of tracks. Songs like ‘I Won’t Let It Die’, ‘I Want To Believe’ and ‘Falling Again’ pushed the limits of sample-oriented, Golden Age hip-hop production and introduced melody and composition in a manner rarely heard in the genre. Because of this, ‘Audacity’ was met with some confusion from the group’s audience but over time, fans have grown to truly value this somewhat melancholy and introspective (but still funky) chapter in Ugly Duckling history. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Audacity, Fat Beats has decided to re-release the album on vinyl (with an iconic, illustrated cover by accomplished artist Israel Sanchez) for those who didn’t get their hands on the wax the first time around. Also included in the package is an exclusive 7” single with the officially unreleased track ‘Audacity-Part Three’ (Featuring Pigeon John) and, for the first time on 45, ‘I Want To Believe’. Great records tend to reveal their quality over the passing of time and Audacity is, ultimately, a piece of music that deserves to be heard and appreciated.

Limited edition for Record Store Day 2018!Only one copy per customer!“In my category, I’m the one and only,” proclaimed Oakland legend Too $hort on his 1990 single “Short But Funky.” Few disagreed then, and even fewer would do so decades later.First appearing in the mid-1980s slinging homemade tapes out of his car trunk, the man born Todd Shaw has always stayed true to himself. And although he is known more for the dirty side ofhis rap game, on “Short But Funky” he also reminds listeners of an important fact: “There’s a serious side to everything I say.”Short Dog’s In The House was $hort’s sixth album, and his second for the Jive label. By the time it hit, he was a West Coast legend, but his rep was growing Eastwards, as the rest of thecountry started opening its ears to new sounds. Peaking at #20 on the national Billboard 200 chart, the album was exactly whathis dedicated fans expected – funky, 70s-drenched beats made for cars on the boulevard; and no-nonsense lyrics that made more sense and dropped more knowledge than he was ever given credit for. For examples of his conscious side, look nofurther than the P-Funk fueled “It’s Your Life” or the album’s lead single, “The Ghetto.”The album’s second single “Short But Funky” landed somewhere in the middle of $hort and Todd Shaw, talking aboutb where he was at as the new decade broke, and making it clearthat he wasn’t going anywhere. His mortality was particularly on his mind after rumors had surfaced the year before that he had died in a crackhouse. He speaks directly to this crazy episode on“Dead Or Alive.” And although it’s mostly a solo affair, he brings in some heavy artillery – and a lot of not-for-the-kids profanity – on “Ain’tNothin’ But A Word To Me,” featuring none other than Ice Cube. In between, $hort distributed plenty of tales and charisma for fans to eat up, continuing to build his legendary status as one of the rap trailblazers of the era. Presented here on black wax witha poster of the excellent cartoon cover graphic, it’s time to give this one a spin, whether it’s the first or 100th time.

A virtuoso, known for boundary-pushing production (often fusing traditional hip-hop drum programming with sampling and live music) and thoughtful lyrics, Black Milk is respected across the industry for his unique sound, consistency and innovation. Returning to the scene amidst a turbulent political climate, the Detroit-born rapper/producer announces Fever, his upcoming studio album. Black Milk's sixth solo rap album, and his first since 2014's If There's a Hell Below, Fever combines pointed and topical lyrics and brilliant musicianship, including percussion from all-star musicians Chris “Daddy” Dave (D'Angelo, Adele, Justin Bieber) and Daru Jones (Jack White), bass by long-time collaborator Malik Hunter, and keys and guitar/bass from newcomers Ian Fink and Sasha Kashperko, respectively. Black Milk evolves his production style of fusing electronic, soul, rock and other soundscapes with electronic programming and live music, a method he began experimenting with on his 2010 release Album of the Year. A cohesive 12-track project, listening to Fever evokes the feeling of scrolling through an endless news feed, finding Black Milk reporting and commenting on the world's problems with empathy, clarity, and wit. Additional vocals from Dwele, Aaron "Ab" Abernathy, and Sudie (a producer / vocalist signed to Black Milk’s Computer Ugly label) serve to juxtapose Black’s heavy lyrical content with airy vibes.

Produced by Apollo Brown faturing vocals by Planet Asia, Willie The Kid, TriState and Guilty Simpson!Anchovies aren’t for everybody. They’re greasy, smelly, salty and oily. Some people love them. Some people hate them. Apollo Brown & Planet Asia’s new collaboration album took inspiration from these polarizing fish and created a project that takes a certain palette to enjoy.Classic Hiphop meets minimalism and dusty vinyl on Anchovies. Cali Agents alum Planet Asia is as sharp as ever with his lyrical smithing. Apollo Brown’s style is evident behind the dust and grime of these smoky samples. The Detroit producer approached this album like a director would a movie. Apollo painstakingly laid out every detail of the project and knew what he wanted from the finished product. He knew that only one rapper could execute his vision. Enter Planet Asia. The West Coast legend was able to fit directly into the plan and bring his talents to the album, creating a perfect match.“This shit be so dirty. If you threw water at it, it’d turn to mud.”-Planet Asia

Limited edition vinyl!Only one copy per customer!For more than twenty-two years, the name Jedi Mind Tricks has become synonymous with raw, gritty, independent hip-hop. From their debut album, The Psycho-social, in 1996 to their seminal sophomore release, Violent By Design, to their musical expansion on Servants and Heaven, Kings in Hell, JMT has made an indelible impression on the independent music scene while arguably forging its own subgenre of rap. Led by the fiery vocals of controversial frontman, Vinnie Paz (who has also built an auspicious solo career over the last decade), and the enigmatic producer, Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind, the group has sustained a successful career as a result of its consistently, uncompromising rap music. On June 22nd, the duo drops their ninth studio album, The Bridge and The Abyss, featuring the singles/videos for “San La Muerte” and “Marciano’s Reign.” Speaking on the new album, Vinnie Paz, says, “Each time out we face a challenge of not wanting to make the same record, but at the same time doing what we do, which is make hardbody rap. I try to balance my ignorant raps with songs that are a little more conceptual and personal. I think we found a nice balance on this album.” JMT’s success can’t be measured in chart positions or platinum plaque counts. Their success is most accurately measured in the passion and respect of their growing legions of hardcore fans who have packed JMT shows around the world from Boston to Bogota to Bucharest. Paz says, “When you see someone with a tattoo of your logo or your album art on their body, that’s a level of dedication that a sales chart can’t possibly capture. We’re blessed to have some of the most dedicated fans in music. We’ve always sort of been music industry pariahs and I think our fans like that we don’t cower to the politics of the business.” JMT’s music embodies the spirit of DIY defiance and their longevity is a testament to their blue-collar work ethic coursing through the bloodlines of their hometown of Philadelphia.

A member of the Likwit Crew alongside King T, Tha Alkaholiks, and Xzibit, rapper Defari was bornin Santa Monica, CA. He began DJing in 1982, moving on to MCing five years later. Music remained only a hobby, however, and after earning a sociology degree at the University of California at Berkeley he went on to receive a master’s degree in history and education at Colombia, accepting a high school teaching position upon graduating. In 1994, Defari recorded his first demo, soon after meeting Alkholiks producer E-Swift, together they recorded the track “Big Up,” which appeared on the 1995 compilation Next Chapter: Strictly Underground. A single, “Bionic,” followed a year later before Defari signed with Tommy Boy Records to issue his full-length debut Focused Daily in 1999. A career spanning nearly 20 years resumes with his latest release Rare Poise. Entirely produced by Evidence (Dilated Peoples).

Released in 1992 on CD, MC and Promo LP only, Spice 1's debut gets a proper vinyl treatment.Spice 1 is an undisputed West Coast legend, who first hit the scene after the N.W.A. and – closer to home – Too $hort explosion of the late ‘80s. As history showed, he continued that bloodline with finesse and authority. His nasal flow is menacing and strong, and fans have been consistently captivated by his ‘hood tales since his self-titled debut in 1992. If you want thematic range with your MCs, Spice isn’t that dude – he is all about crime tales and the perils of ghetto life. And he attacks that storytelling sweet spot with each new cut. Spice 1 boasted four singles by the time it was all said and done, and breezed to Gold status on the strength of cuts like the catchy “East Bay Gangster”, the heartfelt tales and truths of “Welcome To The Ghetto”, and the thick, grooving “In My Neighborhood.” He even produced the alcohol-themed “187 Proof,” another of the album’s singles, and the hands-down cleverest vocal outing on the LP. Sonically, the backdrops on Spice 1 range from plunky, keyboard-bassline funk to deeper, fuzzy ‘70s samples – and he sounds strong on top of both. “Break Yourself” is fueled with an electro-funk drive, “1-800 Spice” brings reggae flavor, and “Peace To My Nine” gets chunkier, with a well-placed P-Funk “One Nation Under A Groove” sample. Presented here on official retail vinyl for the first time since its initial release 26 years ago, Spice 1’s debut holds the test of time and carries the California gangsta flag with pride. Some colors just don’t fade.

The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee's new album 'The Iceberg' is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, 'The Iceberg' is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick R&B and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement.

Limited edition vinyl!“All art is magic,” Raymond Chandler once wrote. But not all magic is art. Sometimes, it’s a matter of trite card tricks, petty illusions, and fast twitch graft. But when the legerdemain of the unreal combines with the tangible and heartfelt, it can lift a veil that allows you to see the esoteric beauty and profound mystery of life. This amalgam of art and magic looms at the spiritual core of L’Orange’s The Ordinary Man­—a record vaguely reminiscent of RJD2’s Deadringer if it actually contained the power to reanimate the dead. It asserts L’Orange in a league with instrumental hip-hop legends like the aforementioned Ohio great, DJ Shadow, Wax Tailor, Blockhead, and the Avalanches. Yet it’s a singularly necromantic work that could only come from the Nashville-by-way-of-North Carolina producer.On his third album, L’Orange builds upon his previous catalogue’s cinematic film noir and cabaret jazz fixations, but adds a thematic focus, whimsy, and feverish urgency. It arrives after a tumultuous two-year saga in which a series of tumors grew in L’Orange’s right ear, which eventually led to almost total deafness on that side. Surgeries left him off-balance and dizzy. A natural fear gripped him, causing self-doubt about whether he’d regain the totality of his gift. But as it does quite often, turmoil spurred the producer to create his most poignant body of work.Released on Mello Music Group, The Ordinary Man chronicles the narrative of a magician who discovered late in life that his peers weren’t actually pulling rabbits from hats. Crestfallen and disillusioned, he digs deeper to push his own show into uncharted territory, demonstrating ostensibly impossible feats for crowds too terrified to ask for the reveal.As the audience gradually realizes that his practice of the dark arts isn’t fraudulent, people from all around the world flock to him. Unfortunately, this loyalty to what he was rather than what he did becomes patronizing and dull—engendering a bitterness and disenchantment that leads him to finally disappear in front of millions of stunned onlookers. Following L’Orange’s previous full-length opuses with Kool Keith, Mr. Lif and Jeremiah Jae, this show finds a cast of guest stars that includes Del the Funkee Homosapien, Blu, Elzhi, The Koreatown Oddity, and Chuwee. The solo sorcery amounts to a work of orphic shadowy power. Interstitial clips describe the magician’s large bulging eyes, high domed forehead and thin slit of a mouth; houses that have seen too many strange happenings, messages trickling through from other dimensions, grotesque monsters with five legs and six years. Samples are chopped like friendly spirits, blending and elegantly haunting the guest rappers.Behind the boards, L’Orange shows a master’s precision, playing with pace and tempo, telling a fully- fleshed out narrative with few words. This is The Sorcerer’s Apprentice but far more soulful. If Harry Houdini was a hip-hop head this is what he’d bump. It’s mournful blues with pianos that sparkle like a Tiffany Lamp—smooth as a pickpocket stealing a wallet.Tune in for archaic old-time glamour interspersed with insight into the timeless oracular mystery at the center of our existence. You spy bizarre astrological charts and hear acts of levitation. This is the Aleister Crowley material: stuff that defies explanation, what Ripley went looking for. Harry Potter meeting the hellhound on your trail. Nothing ordinary about it.

US Hip Hop

Wer hätte vor über 40 Jahren gedacht, dass US Hip Hop einen solch immensen Einfluss auf die Sprache von Generationen ausübt? Amerikanischer Hip Hop entstand in den frühen Siebziger Jahren, den Grundstein legte DJ Kool Herc mit seinen Block Partys. Anfangs sorgten MCs noch für die verbale Unterstützung der DJs, doch schon bald drängten sie sich in die Hautrolle. Spätestens als der SP1200 den TR-808 verdrängte, konnten HipHop-Kids mühelos Zeilen der wichtigsten Wortakrobaten zitieren. In der zweiten Hälfte der Achtziger Jahre mauserte sich US Hip Hop von einer Subkultur zu einem globalen Hype. Zuerst in den USA, dann in Europa und Japan…

Die Golden Era des US-Rap

Slick Rick brachte das Storytelling auf die nächste Stufe, Public Enemy mauserten sich zum politischen Sprachrohr der Schwarzen Gemeinde. Die Ultramagnetic MC’s gaben textlich und musikalisch einen Vorgeschmack auf den US Hip Hop der Zukunft. Das Kollektiv Native Tongues stellte die besonnene Alternative zur Sprache der Straße dar. Und bald entdeckten Produzenten wie DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock oder Q-Tip Jazz als Sample-Quelle. Während an der East Coast die Rapper mit großem Vokabular wetteiferten, zelebrierte man an der Westküste den Gangsta-Rap. Mit durchschlagendem Erfolg, was man schnell merkte. Mit Kool G Rap oder Schoolly D gab es an der Ostküste bereits MCs, die vorher wortgewandt den Lifestyle eines Gangsters thematisiert hatten, doch Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, Dr. Dre und DJ Yella waren radikaler, offensiver, einfach lauter und medienwirksamer.

US Hip Hop von den 1990er Jahren bis heute

In den Neunziger Jahren entwickelte sich US Hip Hop dann zu einem Massenphänomen. Die Beats aus dem MPC und clevere Wortspiele begeisterten die Massen. Rap Tracks führten nicht nur die Hip-Hop Charts an. Mit Hilfe von Biggie Smalls definierte Puff Daddy den Mainstream neu. Heute sind einige der Golden Era-MCs der lebende Beweis dafür, dass man auch im gehobenen Alter noch fesselnde Reime abliefern kann. Bei diesem Thema fallen einem sofort Namen wie KRS-One, Kool Keith, Kool G Rap, GZA, Pharoahe Monch, Freddie Foxxx, Sadat X oder O.C. ein. Und auch nach über 25 Jahren im Geschäft rocken Produzenten wie Pete Rock, Large Professor oder DJ Premier noch das Pult im Studio. Neue Künstler aus allen Regionen der USA kreieren ihre eigene Version des US Hip Hop und begeistern sogar eingefleischte Old Schooler. Aber auch wenig beachtete Rapper aus den Neunziger Jahren gelingt manchmal erst im höheren Alter der Durchbruch. Has-Lo, Roc Marciano, KA, Billy Woods, Crews wie Pro Era, Odd Future oder A$AP Mob und frische Gesichter wie Your Old Droog oder RAST RFC drücken der amerikanischen Rap-Musik heute ihren Stempel auf. El-P, Apollo Brown, The Alchemist oder L’Orange beleben währenddessen die Sound-Landschaft des US Hip Hop. Und von generationsübergreifenden Gemeinschaftsprojekten profitieren MC, Produzent und Fans.
