Remastered from the original tapes and pressed on loud double vinyl In 1995, fresh off the success of Nas's landmark debut album Illmatic the year prior, Columbia Records released Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerouz, the first LP by a relatively unknown Harlem MC named Big L. Few at the time would realize that Lifestylez — which was only a modest commercial success at the time - would go on to be considered a true classic of the era, comparable to Illmatic itself. Armed with a cocky Uptown attitude, a sharp wit and production from the likes of Lord Finesse, Buckwild and Showbiz, Big L established himself as one of New York's Hip Hop heavyweights with an album that balanced radio appeal with uncompromising hardcore lyricism. From the smooth sounds of 'M.V.P.' to raw posse cuts like '8 Iz Enuff' and 'Da Graveyard' (which featured a rookie MC from Brooklyn by the name of Jay-Z), Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerouz solidified Big L's status as a Hip Hop legend despite being the only studio album released prior to his tragic death in 1999. Traffic Entertainment is proud to release Big L's classic debut album in a double-LP pressing for the first time ever, with a fold-out poster featuring the iconic album cover included. SIDE A 1. Put It On 2. M.V.P. 3. No Endz, No Skinz SIDE B 4. 8 Iz Enuff 5. All Black 6. Danger Zone SIDE C 7. Street Struck 8. Graveyard 9. Lifestylez Ov da Poor and Dangerous SIDE D 10.

Massively neglected classic album from 1994. f you know MF Doom, you probably know the history of this album. KMD was the original group consisting of Subrock, Zev luv-X (Doom) & Onyx. Onyx left and then while working on this LP Doom's brother Subrock was killed in a car accident. As the LP was finished Elektra shelved the album and dropped Doom due to the controversial cover art, (a sambo hanging from a gallows.)
Years later some of the rough cuts of the LP emerged on the Fondel Em' label as the "Black Ba***rd's: Roughs & Rares EP" giving a small hint to what greatness the album could have been. A few years later under Doom's own Metal Face Records "Black Bas***ds" finally saw the light of day.
Tyler, the Creator, is a founding member of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (ofwgkta), a 10-person hip hop collective. This is going to have the same effect on hip hop as other landmark moments - the first Wu-Tang long player, the Beastie Boys dropping License to Ill, Dr Octagon's Dr Octagon and Public Enemy's Yo Bum Rush the Show and provide a much needed antidote to where hip hop is now. Their show's are more like punk shows and their love for skating, supreme and bacon far outweighs their love for the music industry. He's an accomplished musician, a stunning wordsmith and definitely not someone to be taken lightly - not bad for someone who's not even 20 yet! this is more than style over substance and definitely not horror core - it's hip hop in it's rawest form and what we really need right now! production on the album is handled almost entirely by Tyler apart from The Other One which is produced by Left Brain and features from ofwgkta members Frank Ocean, Domo Genesis, Hodgy Beats, Left Brain, Mike G, Taco and Jasper the Fucking Dolphin.
What do you get when you combine the best hip-hop producer in Boston with one of the best upcoming lyricists in NY? Well Done. This is an album couldn’t have a better fitting title, as it will surely fill the void hip-hop fans around the world have been yearning to fill. In the style of classic producer & MC albums, Statik & Bronson deliver intricate rhymes and head-nodding beats on this noteworthy release.
2LP on Brick Records feat. GZA, Method Man, MF DOOM etc.
Czarface is a hip-hop trio that pulls together the talents of Inspectah Deck, 7L and Esoteric. They love their comic-book / super-hero culture, which comes through both in their fluid lyrics and through the frankly incredible artwork for Every Hero Needs A Villain: a full, 70 page comic book comes with both the CD and the Vinyl.
2 LP's + 7-inch limited edition with 2 beats from KMD kitchen.
MF DOOM is the man in the iron mask. The most mysterious figure in hip-hop has also become one of the most popular, supplying beats and rhymes for Gorillaz, De La Soul, Madlib, Danger Mouse, and Wu-Tang Clan, and drawing praise from heavyweights like Just Blaze, Nas, and Mos Def. Since 2002, DOOM has released numerous volumes of Special Herbs, one of the longest-running instrumental series in hip-hop history. Now, volumes five and six of the acclaimed series are available on vinyl for the first time in years.With obscure loops and dusty samples galore, Special Herbs Vol. 5 & 6 is a must-have for any DOOM fan or hip-hop head.

Bronx duo Camp Lo have teamed up with the one and only Pete Rock to drop 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s (a mixtape series available as a full length). With the projects name paying homage to the BX gangs of the 70s, it’s only right that they bring it back to hip-hop’s essence in the video, graffiti, b-boys, rhymin’ on the project stairways, two turntables and a mic.
Pete Rock, whose production work helped define the 90s “golden age” is a rare exception. Rock’s one of the few musicians who made his name in the aggressively unflashy 90s East Coast sound who’s managed to stay continually relevant without capitulating to changing tastes.
80 Blocks from Tiffany's offers proof that amidst the expeditions rap music’s launching into new sonic territories like EDM, noisy psychedelia, and quasi-industrial music, the classic boom-bap stuff still has a place featuring Mac Miller, MOP, Ab-Soul, Talib Kweli and more...
