"When examining the over-the-top gangsta posturing of mainstream hip-hop in the past 15 years, it's easy to see why some cats neglect to pay homage to one of the golden age's finest. This album single-handedly popularized hip-hop in all aspects of mainstream music, as it was the first #1 album in hip..." Read more

"There's a few reasons that Digable Planet's sophomore album "Blowout Comb" is one of my top 10 favorite hip-hop albums ever made. First and foremost, the mix of jazz & hip-hop, in my opinion, is one of the most organic and natural mash-ups of two genres I've ever heard. And one could argue that "Blo..." Read more

"When it comes to politically charged pro-black hip-hop, X-Clan were among the finest. The potency of their message can only be matched by Public Enemy, and "To the East, Blackwards" is a protest-rap masterpiece. The original lineup as presented here, consists of lead rapper Brother J, Professor X, P..." Read more

"The last album X-Clan dropped was all the way back in 1992 ("Xodus"). The group disbanded after that album to pursue other collective & solo projects. In 1995, original member Sugar Shaft died from AIDS. Shortly before the making of this album, Professor X died from spinal meningitis. With Paradise ..." Read more

"It's been 10 years since Show & AG graced us with some new material (1998's "Full Scale"). It's now 2008, and this legendary east coast duo returns to prove that they are still a force to be reckoned with. "Live Hard" features 7 all-new tracks by the duo, and 5 corresponding instrumentals. So what w..." Read more

"The Mighty Underdogs are indeed a mighty supergroup comprised of Quannum/Solesides members Lateef "The Truth Speaker" (Latyrx, Maroons), The Gift Of Gab (Blackalicious), and the extremely versatile Headnodic (Crown City Rockers). Each member is beyond respected, if not revered as some of the best ar..." Read more

"The Crown City Rockers are perhaps one of the finest new school groups making hip-hop today. I first took notice of this group from lead emcee Raashan Ahmad's debut LP "The Push" - one of my favorites from '08. He's got a smooth, alluring flow with excellent cadence. Above all, he excels in the song..." Read more

"It's very rare that music comes along that is truly perfect. This is one of those rare glimpses at genius that, if you're a musician of any sort, makes you want to be better. The back and fourth between Phife and Q-Tip is better on this any ATCQ album, and the production is second to none. If for so..." Read more

"A few of the tracks on here (That 'Ol Boom Bap Remix, School) are great! There are also some others that aren't quite as memorable but still good. The biggest problem with this album is the prevalence of Celph Titled, the guy just sounds like a dumb person that knows words that rhyme. The other prob..." Read more

I can't really see myself playing this stuff unless it was on the late night tip, but props to Nicolay..." Read more
