Boogie Down Productions – By All Means Necessary

May 6, 2008 at 9:59 pm (1988) ()

The second album from KRS and BDP, famous for KRS’s depiction of Malcolm X standing by his window, holding a machine gun, and protecting himself from those who wished to take his life. Oh, there’s some pretty good songs on the album, too.

Souls of Mischief – 93 ‘Til Infinity

May 6, 2008 at 9:19 pm (1993) ()

Your third post of the night is an album from 1993 that most you should be familiar with. The cover is pretty boring and quality of the source material wasn’t that great, but it’s a hell of a lot better than the stuff I found online.

9th Wonder & Buckshot – The Formula

May 6, 2008 at 4:18 pm (2008) ()

Okay, so I took a four day break and left you guys hanging for a while. You’ll live. The first of five posts today is 9th Wonder & Buckshot’s newest drop, The Formula. Although I liked Duck Down’s comic book style covers–you’ll see the cover for 9th and Buck’s Chemistry today, too–this one really does it for me.

Taking a Three Day Weekend

May 3, 2008 at 2:58 pm (Blog News)

As you may have noticed, I didn’t put up a post yesterday, and I won’t today or tomorrow, either. This is because I’m swamped by family and school commitments. The next post –the next four posts, actually–will be up on Monday. I promise.

P.S. This would be the time to make any requests.

De La Soul – De La Soul Is Dead

May 1, 2008 at 11:26 pm (1991) ()

Is there a better way to celebrate May Day than to present to you, my friends, De La Soul’s second studio album? Well, uh, probably, but this will have to do.

Sean Price – Monkey Barz

April 30, 2008 at 10:33 pm (2005) ()

Sean Price has been putting out great jams for more than a decade. First with Heltah Skeltah, then with Boot Camp Click, and finally as a solo artist. Monkey Barz is his first solo album, and also in my opinion his best, edging out his second solo album, Jesus Price Supastar. Both are great albums, however, so expect the cover of Supastar to be posted in the not too distant future as well.

Grand Puba – Reel to Reel

April 29, 2008 at 11:37 pm (1992) ()

After Brand Nubian’s One for All, Puba broke away from the group and released the first of his three solo albums. It’s not a classic by any means, but it is a pretty good album, and I can’t hesitate recommending it, especially since you could pick it up at a used CD store for about $5–I got it for $3.99 in like new condition.

Jay-Z – Reasonable Doubt

The album that started it all for Mr. Carter. I can’t possible say anything about this album that hasn’t already said.

Naughty by Nature – 19 Naughty III

April 27, 2008 at 9:26 pm (1993) ()

Naughty by Nature has always been a favorite of mine. Their first three albums all one-upped the ones before them, culminating in what I think is their best album, Poverty’s Paradise. This is their second album, released in 1993.
