Hip Hop has been a powerful force since its inception in the late ‘70s. From the early pioneers of street music, such as Grandmaster Flash, Kurtis Blow and The Sugarhill Gang, through the jazz and funk worship of A Tribe Called Quest and Digable Planets, or the aggressive rivalry between the East and West coasts of America during the ‘90s. What started out as something small became a movement and a revolution, that continues to be the voice of each generation with the ever shifting political and social tides.
We have a wide range of hip hop and titles in our store right now. Below are some of the highlights, and you can see our full selection on eil.com.
Cypress Hill – Black Sunday: Rare 1993 Dutch manufactured 14-track double vinyl LP, the uncensored version of the classic second album including Insane In The Brain and I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That; printed inners with a glossy gatefold picture sleeve. The sleeve displays some wear mostly to the edges with the start of a split at the top, whilst the vinyl remains excellent with only light signs of play
Childish Gambino – Because The Internet: Limited edition 2014 US 19-track double vinyl LP, with metallic O-card slipcase and 72-page screenplay booklet, released for Record Store Day 2014 and limited to just 5000 copies worldwide. Second studio album from Donald Glover under his Childish Gambino moniker, including the single 3005, Crawl, and Sweatpants. The sleeves shows only some light edgewear, and while the vinyl does show a handful of inaudible cosmetic surface scuffs from being taken in and out of the inner sleeve it remains in superb condition. A modern day hip hop classic, which set the stage for Glover to move on to bigger things in the music world. Essential
Big Punisher – Capital Punishment: 1998 UK 24-track double vinyl LP, the debut album and the only one released in the ex-Terror Squad member’s lifetime, featuring Busta Rhymes, Inspectah Deck, Dead Prez, Wycliffe Jean and others, vintage price-stickered sleeve. The sleeve is still in its opened shrinkwrap and the vinyl has just the odd light scuff leaving it easily Excellent
