It may have taken the Notorious B.I.G. a few years to follow up his milestone debut, Ready to Die (1994), with another album, but when he did return with Life After Death in 1997, he did so in a huge way. The ambitious album, intended as somewhat of a sequel to Ready to Die, picking up where its predecessor left off, sprawled across the span of two discs, each filled with music, 24 songs in all. You'd expect any album this sprawling to include some lackluster filler. That's not really the case with Life After Death, however. Like 2Pac's All Eyez on Me from a year before, an obvious influence, Biggie's album made extensive use of various producers -- DJ Premier, Easy Mo Bee, Clark Kent, RZA, and more of New York's finest -- resulting in a diverse, eclectic array of songs. Plus, Biggie similarly brought in various guest rappers -- Jay-Z, Lil' Kim, Bone Thugs, Too $hort, L.O.X., Mase -- a few vocalists -- R. Kelly, Angela Winbush, 112 -- and, of course, Puff Daddy, who is much more omnipresent here than on Ready to Die, where he mostly remained on the sidelines. It's perhaps Puffy himself to thank for this album's biggest hits: "Mo Money Mo Problems," "Hypnotize," "Sky's the Limit," three songs that definitely owe much to his pop touch. There's still plenty of the gangsta tales on Life After Death that won Biggie so much admiration on the streets, but it's the pop-laced songs that stand out as highlights. In hindsight, Biggie couldn't have ended his career with a more fitting album than Life After Death. Over the course of only two albums, he achieved every success imaginable, perhaps none greater than this unabashedly over-reaching success. Ready to Die is a milestone album, for sure, but it's nowhere near as extravagant or epic as Life After Death. - allmusic.com

Time waits for no man, but venerable New York emcee and producer Roc Marci remains a rare exception to the rule. Enchanting listeners with his dexterous lyricism, methodically soulful beats, and steely persona on releases like 2010's critically-acclaimed Marcberg, and his revered 2012 effort, Reloaded, the pride of Hempstead, Long Island emerges from the shadows after a three-year hiatus with the equally spellbinding Rosebudd's Revenge. This is the rapper's fourth studio album. Aside from appearances on landmark releases, including De La Soul's Grammy-nominated And the Anonymous Nobody, and Ka's Days With Dr. Yen Lo, Roc Marci's presence has been scarce, making Rosebudd's Revenge one of the more anticipated hip-hop releases of 2017.Enlisting his band of collaborators to join him on every song on his last release, Roc Marci flips the script on his latest offering. Rosebudd’s Revenge’s lone features are frequent collaborators: Brownsville emcee Ka on the epic sparring session ""Marksmen,"" and Knowledge The Pirate on ""No Smoke."" This uncluttered lineup gives Roc Marci ample space to deliver his tales from the strip. Key selections from Rosebudd's Revenge include the suave, keyboard-laden affair ""Better Know,"" ""Killing Time,"" ""Pig Knuckles,"" and the hard-boiled title-track, and boasts musings that rank among the best of Roc Marci's tenured run.Spilling his fluid flow over production from the likes of Grammy-nominated producer Knxwledge, as well as George Paulin, Animoss, Don C, Modus Op, and himself, Roc Marci reaffirms his placement on the musical avant garde and standing as one of hip-hop's preeminent lyricists on Rosebudd's Revenge, a defining effort that will leave fans salivating for more.

The Notorious B.I.G. is widely recognized as one of the world’s most influential rappers and has sold more than 17 million albums in the U.S. alone. Before his murder in 1997, Christopher Wallace recorded two classic albums as The Notorious B.I.G. His debut Ready to Die arrived in 1994 and helped revitalize the East Coast rap scene with massive hits like “Big Poppa” and “Juicy.” Faith Evans has enjoyed worldwide success as an award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and writer. She has recorded eight studio albums, including the back-to-back platinum smashes, Faith (1995) and Keep The Faith (1998). Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G. famously met at a photo shoot in 1994 and were married nine days later. What followed would become one of the most legendary love stories in hip-hop history. Evans has now, 20 years after B.I.G.’s still unsolved murder, created The King & I, a brand new album that tells the story of their life together. The CD features 25 tracks, including newly recorded vocals by Evans melded with vocals by Biggie Smalls, some well-known but also a selection of rare and unheard rhymes from the B.I.G. vault. THE KING & I also includes an impressive list of guest appearances by rap royalty including Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Lil’ Cease, Lil’ Kim, Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Snoop Dogg. Evans has also brought on some of the most acclaimed producers in hip-hop, many of which produced some of B.I.G.’s most famous tracks, including DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi, Stevie J, and Chucky Thompson.

One of the dopest releases on Herring. Very much reminiscent of a classic 1994 album - production comes from undercover Philly producer MG aka Mentally Gifted and the beats are on a Beatnuts/Extra P/Groove Merchants/Pete Rock tip - ha - sounds good right? It is!!!!This project started up about 4 years ago. Tabb licensed Chopped Herring the ""Brothers in Da Hood"" joint, a known Heavy Grail - but the label was always looking for more tracks to make a solid project. It took a series of collectors and hardcore Hip Hop Headz to take it to the next. PQuest, a collector and music afficiando from Germany hit up requesting the release of the “Big Tabb demos from 1994” - some short snippets had been upped to the tube. Even though it'd been a while, Herring got back in touch with Tabb [aka Jakk Frost] to find out if he still had the masters of his early demos - he did not. The label got back in touch with P and asked if he knew anyone who had seen the demo tape around. It turned out that a copy of the original demo tape had recently sold at auction. The buyer and seller were known to Herring as one was an old Herring customer and the other had hit Herring up about releasing another, demo tape only project, also out of Philly. One gave the other's details and after a few months the hi-quality tape transfers were in the hands or fins of Herring. The buyer was a cat from the states called Lance Baker and the seller was Mad Human - a respected dealer of rap rarities. So this was a muthafuckin team effort - BIG UP FELLAS!

At the same time Camille was developing her own material with her fellow peers such as MNDSGN, Iman Omari, DJ Battlecat, Like (Pac Div) Georgia Anne Muldrow & SIR who are all featured on her album “Heirloom” just like TDE co-president Punch. “Heirloom” productions range from smooth, g-funk esque west coast beats to live & organic soulful beats, working as the perfect backdrop for Camille's powerful, intelligent and thought thru lyrics The album is deeply personal revolving around the issues that mater in her life from friends and family, her role as a woman and the heirloom of her and her surrounding: “I feel like everyone are heirlooms of our mothers and fathers. An heirloom is just something that’s passed down through a family. We get heirlooms in the form of game, encouragement or wise words. I know everyone has an aunt or uncle that’s given them some bars about life in general. I have a village around me that have given me heirlooms in the form of conversations”.

Following Jak Progresso’s“Random Violence” as the 2nd full-length release from Creative JuicesMusic, “Force Fed” heralds the charge of this new artist onto the NYunderground scene: Ide the Shanty One. Already earning respect forexpert production and engineering for various underground artists, nowIde brings forth this manifesto of disgust and impatience with a twistedculture and reminds listeners why hip-hop is NOT dead. Throughout hisfrst lp, he avoids lecturing about society directly but instead proclaimsthis gritty mission statement championing subversive artistry andpsychic exploration. This Creative Juices Music release gathers a totalof 10 producers, including Domingo, Deep and Ben Boogz (2 HungryBro’s/Creative Juices), DJ Connect (Elite Fleet), and others, as well asIde himself, yet projects a unifed sonic stampede of steel-toed hip-hop.Joining The Shanty One on the mic are U.G. (Cella Dwellas), SavageMessiah (formerly of Scienz of Life), Critical, Madness, Alucard, JakProgresso, and L.I.F.E.Long (Stronghold), all contributing cinematicsimiles in an unrelenting ?ood. Ide’s “Force Fed” is compelling inits ferocity, and ftting that he is initiating his chapter in music in thecompany of these well-known fgures on the underground scene.”ForceFed” is for hungry listeners, who’ve had enough of the formula, anddon’t mind a little pain if their rap would only get its edge back. Thisbrazen debut album from Ide the Shanty One is a sure classic for 2007and another strong product from the Creative Juices Music label.

Time waits for no man, but venerable New York emcee and producer Roc Marci remains a rare exception to the rule. Enchanting listeners with his dexterous lyricism, methodically soulful beats, and steely persona on releases like 2010's critically-acclaimed Marcberg, and his revered 2012 effort, Reloaded, the pride of Hempstead, Long Island emerges from the shadows after a three-year hiatus with the equally spellbinding Rosebudd's Revenge. This is the rapper's fourth studio album. Aside from appearances on landmark releases, including De La Soul's Grammy-nominated And the Anonymous Nobody, and Ka's Days With Dr. Yen Lo, Roc Marci's presence has been scarce, making Rosebudd's Revenge one of the more anticipated hip-hop releases of 2017.Enlisting his band of collaborators to join him on every song on his last release, Roc Marci flips the script on his latest offering. Rosebudd’s Revenge’s lone features are frequent collaborators: Brownsville emcee Ka on the epic sparring session ""Marksmen,"" and Knowledge The Pirate on ""No Smoke."" This uncluttered lineup gives Roc Marci ample space to deliver his tales from the strip. Key selections from Rosebudd's Revenge include the suave, keyboard-laden affair ""Better Know,"" ""Killing Time,"" ""Pig Knuckles,"" and the hard-boiled title-track, and boasts musings that rank among the best of Roc Marci's tenured run.Spilling his fluid flow over production from the likes of Grammy-nominated producer Knxwledge, as well as George Paulin, Animoss, Don C, Modus Op, and himself, Roc Marci reaffirms his placement on the musical avant garde and standing as one of hip-hop's preeminent lyricists on Rosebudd's Revenge, a defining effort that will leave fans salivating for more.

Abstractions is an international collaboration featuring Maryland’s lyricist extraordinaire, K.A.A.N. going in with his signature machine-gun-flow over some of German producer Klaus Layer’s most unique soundscapes to date. Hip-Hop as a genre is big on labels and while many might consider the musical styles demonstrated on here to be “boom-bap” inspired with a side of “lyrical miracle,” there’s more than meets the ear happening here. The project is brief but thanks to the dense layers of both music and introspective wordplay crafted by the artists, listening to Abstractions is a very rewarding experience. The two first collaborated on the deep cut, Sleepy Hollow People, from Layer’s Society Collapse LP in 2016. Out of mutual interests and positive fanfare, a whole EP was recorded shortly afterward. Hearing K.A.A.N. rap is a treat for rap connoisseurs as he dynamically delivers complex rhymes with a rare energy, rivaling even the best veteran MCs of yesterday and today. Klaus Layer is no slouch either when it comes to sound design. Evident by the fact that he has become a fixture amongst some of Hip hop's best European imports; his records fly off shelves and he can be found frequently performing in smoky Jazz clubs from France to Moscow and beyond. Known for his viral youtube MPC performances and releasing critically acclaimed instrumental albums year after year since his Redef debut in 2013, "Abstractions" is the first Klaus project to exclusively feature a rapper over his sought after sound. Instrumentals are included on the b-side. To date, both artists have found incredible success respectively that continues to grow (K.A.A.N. notably has recently relocated to Los Angeles but we are not at liberty to disclose any of the prescriptions he’s been writing… *Cough*). On Abstractions, K.A.A.N. effortlessly proves why he's one of the premiere up and coming mc's adding to his growing back catalog that boasts millions of streams throughout every major online platform. At a time when the world seems to be showing prominent signs of division, it's a record like this that is an example of how music brings people from all races and all corners of the world together. Despite being separated by the Atlantic across two continents, speaking separate languages and living under different government systems, K.A.A.N. and Klaus Layer's Abstractions shows no boundaries exist when great minds unit. It's bigger than hip hop. (Instrumental versions included)

Limited edition of 550 copies only on green and orange colored vinyl copies!The problem with being recognized as a creative genius is that you've got to live up to it 24/7. Kool Keith was given such a mantle upon the release of the “Dr. Octagonecologist” album, and it's not something he seems happy about: on the first track of “First Come, First Served”, he--as Dr. Dooom--kills Octagon. It's the perfect move for Keith, and it sets the tone for the album, which is a mix of humorous tracks ("Neighbors Next Door," which asks you to imagine having Keith and Jacky Jasper living in the next apartment, and "You Live at Home with Your Mom") and songs on which Keith lays down the law ("No Chorus" and "Leave Me Alone"). Few MCs could hope to match Keith, but here--rapping over knocked-off Octagon grooves (produced with Kutmaster Kurt, they're still more innovative than most) and settling lots of personal scores--he sounds like he's just trying to get a bunch of ideas out of his head as quickly as possible. Still, there's an amazing EP's worth of material here, but it's spread over a full album. Minus the filler, Dooom might just be Octagon's better. --Randy Silver

Over the past 17 years, Brother Ali has earned wide critical acclaim for his deeply personal, socially conscious, and inspiring brand of hip-hop. Under Rhymesayers Entertainment, he's unleashed a series of lauded projects, establishing himself as one of the most respected independent voices in music. The latest chapter in that celebrated journey is All the Beauty in This Whole Life, a 15-track collection produced entirely by Atmosphere's Anthony "Ant" Davis. "This entire album is based on the reality that beauty is the splendor of truth" says the Minneapolis MC. "Beauty in all of its forms is the outward manifestation of love and virtue. It soothes the soul and pulls it gently toward the truth it communicates. Every word and note of this album is intended to either reflect beauty, or expose the ugliness that blocks us from living lives of meaning." All the Beauty in This Whole Life is Ali's first official release in five years and represents the newest and most refined chapter of his life's journey. "Each of my albums are the result of the pain, growth and eventual healing that I experience. Articulating the pain and navigating the healing allows the people who really feel my music to travel with me. It's not only that we hurt together, we heal together as well." Contrasting intensely heavy moments with joyous and grateful ones, All the Beauty in This Whole Life arrives right on time, to help heal a divided nation through the power of music. Ali wouldn't have it any other way. "In times of great suffering in the outside world, the most important battles start from within."

How do you define the music of Mantronix? Is it Hip Hop? Electro? Funk? House? Maybe the answer is all of the above (or is it none of the above?). It is true that Mantronix will be remembered for their multi-faceted sound as well as their ability to bend and blend genres flawlessly into a cohesive musical tapestry, but they will also most importantly they will be remembered as musical innovators and sub- genre pioneers. Kurtis Mantronik and MC Tee formed the group Mantronix In the early 80s. Their Sleeping Bag Records debut: Mantronix: The Album shot to commercial success on the strength of their debut single, ""Fresh Is The Word"". The influence of this groundbreaking debut is still felt in popular music today, having been sampled by the likes of Beastie Boys, Beck, The Prodigy and more.Kurtis Mantronik was also as dangerous behind the desk as he was behind the boards. Working as A&R for Sleeping Bag while signed to the label, Mantronik also helped recruit, sign, and produce for artists such as T La Rock and Just-Ice. Notable records from this era include, Just Ice's ""Cold Gettin' Dumb"" and ""Back to the Old School"" as well as T La Rock's ""Breaking Bells (12"" Version)"".Traffic Entertainment Group in conjunction with Sleeping Bag Records and Warlock Entertainment now present; “Mantronix: King of the Beats, The Anthology 1985-1988”.This two disc carefully curated compilation combines the best of Mantronix's work from the early, and arguarbly, best era of their career into one amazing listening experience.

Run DMC’s self-titled 1984 debut pushed the doors of pop music open, showing that hip-hop was not the fad that haters had prophesized. As they proved decisively on Run-DMC, rap was a legit art form, fully capable of producing long-players full of no-fast-forward cuts.By 1985, any doubters were running on fumes, as the group’s King Of Rock blew the aforementioned pop doors off their hinges. Emboldened by their success (including the first rap album to ever go Gold), energized by worldwide touring and accolades, and given all the support they could want by a genius producer (Larry Smith), an open-minded label (Profile) and a charismatic manager (Russell Simmons, who also lent a hand on production), they ruled the charts and hinted at even greater things to come.The album’s most fondly-remembered single set the album’s tone perfectly: “King Of Rock” was hard, full of charisma and tag-team vocal finesse, and had enough guitars to bring the suburbs into the rap fold. The song’s video was equally popular and powerful, and the pioneering MTV exposure drove the group into a new stratosphere.But there was much more to King Of Rock than the title track, including more rock / rap hybrids – “Can You Rock It Like This” and “You’re Blind” – as well as the additional singles “Jam-Master Jammin’” and “You Talk Too Much.” (The latter, incidentally, charted as high as “King Of Rock” on both the Pop and R&B charts).Throw in the forward-thinking reggae/rap collab “Roots, Rap, Reggae” (featuring the legendary Yellowman) and the live-throwdown-simulation “Darryl and Joe (Krush-Groove 3)” and the album – which went on to pass Platinum status– is a winner from A1 to B4.

Chopped Herring is gonna start up 2017 with a real obscure project and purest underground bomb outta Austin, Texas from the year 1995. The group never officially released anything. There was just this full length demo tape. Reminiscent of the Bay Area sound, on a Hiero/Dereliks/Sacred Hoop tip, this underground bomb was handed to the label by French demo tape collector Hakan Dougpark. Here's a few words from MC & Producer Tony Hardman, who is now a sneaker designer at Nike based in LA: "Kichi and I met working in a record store when I lived in Austin in 94. We were 20 years old and as Hip Hop heads, we hit it off right away. He had been rapping and mixing and scratching for years and I had been involved in a few other groups rapping and doing production. Naturally we came together, inspired by all of the amazing music coming out at that time (the B.U.M.s, Nas, BIG, Common, Artifacts, Co Flo). We spent nights in my mom's garage or in a little lab room at his crib writing and recording as much as we could. The album was recorded over the course of a year in 1994/1995 with an EPS 16 plus and a Tascam 4 track recorder. We went on through the late 90s gaining local notoriety through the college Hip Hop radio (House of Phat Beats) and performing at a few different spots in the city. Eventually I moved to Denver to go back to school around 2000. The rest is history."

Nick Hook is NYC’s waviest resident: an in-demand collaborator, producer extraordinaire, and all around provider of vibes who’s lent his touch to projects from Run The Jewels, Young Thug, and countless others, all while building a creative community around his studio, thespacepit, in Greenpoint. Now the redheaded kingpin steps forward with his “Relationships” LP on Fool’s Gold, a 16 track album of collaborations that are unconventional, unexpected and all-the-way live (literally: each song was recorded in-person with Nick behind the boards, a refreshing move in the email verse era).Featuring a festival-worthy lineup of new school rap upstarts (21 Savage, Novelist, ILoveMakonnen) and fellow beat radicals (Prefuse 73, Hudson Mohawke, the late DJ Rashad), Relationships isn’t just the world’s greatest party guestlist, but a chronicle of Nick’s year long, after-midnight vision quest—the sound of a producer breaking through the chrysalis, killing the ego, and raising the bar. Put your phone down and dive in.

Fool's Gold presents the album “Risk/Reward” by GrandeMarshall.GrandeMarshall is Allen Iverson's "Practice?" speech on wax: incisive, headstrong, and not here for your bullshit. From his teenage 800 and Mugga Man mixtapes to last winter's My Brother's Keeper LP, Grande has built a catalog of high-grade, highly personal Philadelphia rap music that answers to no one. "Risk/Reward" is his latest statement piece, eight new tracks featuring likeminded Philly MCs (Tunji Ige, Pauly Sue) and producers (Noah Breakfast, HeavenInStereo) in the service of one singular, head-nodding vision. Trust the process.

Windy City Collective Tomorrow Kings’ Skech185 still hails as one of the most talented MCs to ever emerge from the city of Chicago. Armed with a constant penchant for uncovering the new sound, Skech185 has been practicing standing out since the early 2000’s, moving from exceptional performances in street battle cyphers to genre-creating in the recording booth with a dexterity unparalleled by his peers. Your favorite rappers (with whom Skech185 has either toured, shared the stage, and or competed) revere his severe case of witty and abrasive tongue-in-cheek speak in hard to discover catacombs, and depend on Masonic oaths to keep the secret. Now enter Houston’s Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser, a master craftsman and sonic co-pilot with wav files and elixirs who produced the duo’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut, entitled “New Age Middle Finger”. Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser’s textures range from hard-hitting and up tempo instrumentals to deep bass and slow-stewing cauldrons of decentered electronic audio. You may have heard him as the sole composer on Milo’s “Things that Happen at Night”. Five years after “New Age Middle Finger”, Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser and Skech185 now refer to themselves as “War Church,” and request that you respect them and do the same.
