Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana

Been a long wait for this one. Anyone who’s had even a passing interest in hip-hop throughout the 2010’s knows that Pinata, the 2014 collaboration between Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, is one of the strongest rap full-lengths of the decade. The pair repeat the trick on Bandana, an LP five years in the making. Though the weight of anticipation must have been heavy for this one Gibbs and 'lib are as steely-eyed as ever - Gibbs spits iron-wool bars over Madlib’s beat odysseys. Masterpiece, obviously. Pusha T, Killer Mike and Yasiin Bey are among the guests.

Madvillain
Four Tet Mixes

Madvillain’s Madvillainy needs no introduction at this point, but what you may not know is that the LP was given a going over by Four Tet back in the mid-2000’s. The Four Tet Mixes EP sees a young(ish) Kieran Hebden bolting new beats onto MF DOOM’s bars. DOOM even helps with the production on a new version of ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’. Side B contains all the instrumentals.

Pan Amsterdam
Ha Chu

The enigma that is Pan Amsterdam returns with a new studio album. Following the absorbing debut The Pocket Watch a couple of years ago, acclaimed for its chilled, jazzy soundscapes and cool flows, the rapper indulges guest spots from Sleaford Mods’ Jason Williamson and Doves’ Jimi Goodwin on the ambitious follow-up Ha Chu.

Available Vinyl LP Boxset.

Blu & Exile
Miles

Blu and Exile are a hip-hop duo from the USA. It’s been a long eight years since they last released an album so this time out they’re really going for it with a double album called Miles: From An Interlude Called Life, or as they prefer, Miles. It features childhood friends of the duo Aloe Blacc and Miguel along with Fashawn, The Last, Artful Dodger and Imam Omori. There may not be an eight year wait for the next LP as Exile referred to songs that didn’t make this one as beautiful flowers.

Quasimoto
The Unseen

One of the greatest achievements of Stones Throw records, Quasimoto's 'The Unseen' is a classic of experimental hip hop. Acclaimed crate digger Madlib fashioned his Quasimoto alter ego after indulging in some mushrooms of the magic variety, creating the devious yellow anteater by pitching his voice up a few octaves. Sounds weird huh? Well 'The Unseen' is a bit of a wacky record, though it's psychedelic playfulness shines through jazzy beats, obscure samples and humorous rhymes. It's a Madlib record so you know the beats are going to be top-notch too!

Archy Marshall
A New Place 2 Drown

Archy Marshall (also known as King Krule) isn't one for sitting still. He currently has three monikers including The Return of Pimp Shrimp. It might be helping to destroy his career but if it keeps him influenced then it's our gain as his music is invariably excellent. Here he soundtracks a book that was compiled by his brother Jack with a series of flickering late night atmospheric meditations stealing from hip-hop, UK garage and dub but always with his particular panache in check. Originally digital only, this is the first vinyl pressing.

The Gaslamp Killer
Heart Math

Los Angeles-based hip-hop producer and DJ The Gaslamp Killer returns with Heart Math. It’s an album of brooding and stormy instrumental pieces. He poured his heart into this as it was his only outlet amid an extremely difficult time in his personal life which tested him to the limit.  On Cuss Records.

Marlowe
Marlowe 2

Marlowe is an alternative rap duo made up from hip-hop producer L'Orange and rapper Solemn Brigham. Marlowe 2 is their second album. The duo look to give an old school sound a refresh with their mix of beats, vinyl samples and slick, rapid rhymes taking on social issues, the police and deprivation. On Mello Music Group.

Vritra
Sonar

Sonar is a wondrous new album from hip-hop artist Vritra. Now based in Los Angeles, the Florida-born rapper was an original member of the Odd Future collective, as well as a member of Nobody Really Knows. Here, he teams up with Leon Sylvers IV for a record that sprawls across many sub-genres of modern hip-hop.

Beastie Boys
Check Your Head

Check Your Head was the third album from the Beastie Boys which returned somewhat to their earlier punk rock stylings following the more sample-heavy Paul's Boutique. Frequent collaborator Money Mark has a heavy presence on this album which begins the cross pollination of styles the Beastie's would use on future recordings.

Kendrick Lamar
GOOD KID, m.A.A.d CITY

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City was the major label debut from soon-to-be-pretty-big rapper Kendrick Lamar. It was an introduction in more ways than one as it was a concept LP about Lamar's upbringing in the 'hood. Lyrically complex with sub-plots and red herrings galore it featured a more subtle production that has often been seen in hip-hop with brooding instrumentals and deep atmospherics leading to both underground and commercial accolades.    

The Prodigy
The Fat of the Land

CHAMPAGNE LAGER LAG … oh sorry, wrong one. The Prodigy’s proto-EDM behemoth The Fat Of The Land really needs no introduction at this point. The band are best known for collaborating with Sleaford Mods of course, and everyone loved that Gene Simmons cover of ‘Firestarter’. Change my pitch up.

Machinedrum
A View Of U

Two decades into his career, North Carolina-based producer Travis Stewart delivers arguably his best Machinedrum album to date in A View of U. His skill at style-hopping is well-known, reflected in a stellar cast of guests here including Freddie Gibbs, Sub Focus and Jesse Boykins III, but this feels like a perfection of his art.

The Streets
Original Pirate Material

The classic debut before he went a bit soft. This was genuinely thrilling back in 2002 and it's combination of UK garage/hip-hop and Mike Skinner's lyrical observations were a unique and fascinating combination. Now we have Sleaford Mods a lot of his work sounds a bit....meh... but this is the good one and still sounds fresh.  

Kid Cudi & Kanye West
Kids See Ghosts

Here it is at last after some delays, the short & very sweet  collaboration between artist, rapper and actor Kid Cudi and Ye, the artist and perplexing bosom buddy of Trump formerly known as Kanye West - it’s Kids See Ghosts (directed by M. Night Shyamalan). Strongly melodic hip-hop ensues. Pusha T, Louis Prima, Ty Dollar Sign and Yasiin Bey guest.

Kanye West
Jesus Is King

A long-awaited release on transparent blue vinyl for Jesus Is King, the ninth studio album from Kanye West which was released digitally back in October 2019 and which coincided with IMAX film of the same name. With a prominent Christian theme, Jesus Is King is certainly the most divisive ye album - and that’s saying something!

Lee Scott
Friend Come to Me and be Saved

Prolific Liverpool-based rapper Lee Scott teams up with Morriarchi to deliver another studio album, Friend Come To Me And Be Saved. Quietly one of the most significant figures in British hip-hop since he emerged at the start of the Noughties, it’s sure to be yet more thought-provoking material.

East Man
Prole Art Threat

Now, where have we heard that title from? Well, it's a well-intended tribute to Mark E Smith and the Fall as East Man have the same kind of working class creativity using MCs from across London working over some tight dancehall, grime and drum 'n' bass sounds. The project is produced by Anthoney Hart (aka (Basic Rhythm, Imaginary Forces) and it is his second work for Planet Mu following on from his 2018 debut 'Red, White & Zero'. 

Mndsgn
Bed

Mndsgn as you may or may not guess is pronounced Mind Design and is the alter ego of producer Ringgo Ancheta. He's already released several lovely records for Stones Throw but Bed is something different entirely. Originally issued on limited cassette it explores sleep and the places it takes us and also features a heartfelt tribute to Acheta's deceased cat. 

Denzel Curry x Kenny Beats
Unlocked

One of the most acclaimed rappers of his generation, a reputation established by his work over the last 18 months, Denzel Curry begins the ‘20s with a brand new full-length titled Unlocked, produced by Kenny Beats and laid down in a manically intense three-day recording period following Curry’s appearance on the producer’s YouTube show ‘The Cave’. 

Budgie
Sweet Sweet Spirit

Budgie is British producer Ben Schofield. He currently resides in LA and makes hip hop - so not to be confused with the ‘70s heavy rock act of the same name. You may know him from albums he has made with Eminem’s DJ, The Alchemist. Sweet Sweet Spirit is his second album - however, if you’d be so inclined you can pick up his third album Chuuch Preach Tabernacle at the same time as they’re being released on the same day.

JPEGMAFIA aka rapper Barrington DeVaughn Hendricks. All My Heroes Are Cornballs is his third album. It follows the critically acclaimed Veteran (2018). The album is experimental hip-hop taking in influences from glitch, ambient, industrial and noise music. It even finds the Baltimore-based rapper screaming, when rapping or singing just won’t cut it.

Ultramagnetic MCs
Travelling At The Speed Of Thought / M.C.’s Ultra (Part II Edit)

Famously making an appearance on Street Sounds' seminal Hip Hop Electro 16 compilation back in 1987, ‘Travelling At The Speed Of Thought’ turned its creators, the Ultramagnetic MCs, into one of early hip-hop’s most celebrated outfits. It’s re-issued on 7” vinyl here, with an edit of its original B-side ‘M.C.’s Ultra’ on the reverse.

Ultramagnetic MCs
Ego Tripping / Funky Potion

Melvin Bliss’s 1973 track ‘Synthetic Substitution’ may not be a household name, but Bernard Purdie’s drumbreaks became one of hip-hop’s foundational sounds, sampled countless times by hip-hop’s pioneers in the late Eighties. Ultramagnetic MCs’, however, were the first to do so for their 1986 single ‘Ego Tripping’, which is re-issued by Mr Bongo on 7” vinyl with its original B-side, ‘Funky Potion’.

UNKLE
Psyence Fiction

Psyence Fiction was the debut album by James Lavelle's UNKLE project and the one which was made in collaboration with DJ Shadow. It includes a host of guests from the good such as Thom Yorke and Mark Hollis to the bad (as in good) in Mike D (Beastie Boys)and Kool G Rap to the actual bad in Richard Ashcroft. Slated as a bit of a mess on release it has gained traction over the years and is now seen as an ambitious, thought provoking work.

MF DOOM
Operation: Doomsday [Remastered]

MF DOOM's debut album was a complete game-changer when it was unleashed on unsuspecting hip hop heads. Backpacker types immediately became enamoured with DOOM's left-field beats which drew upon obscure funk, soul, jazz and cartoon/comic book samples, providing the perfect backdrop for the masked MC's abstract wordplay and complex rhymes. Just remember it's all caps when you spell the man's name!

Travis Scott
Astroworld

The US rapper, singer and producer has been bothering top 10s all over the place with his single Sicko Mode, so why not check out his third album, Astroworld? Double LP on Epic.

DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

DJ Shadow’s sample-built 1996 debut album Entroducing….. has all the drama you’d expect from a title with ellipses two-thirds longer than the standard. As tense as it slaps, this is truly one of the the best instrumental trip/hip-hop albums ever made. The deluxe edition comes with expanded liner notes, photos, alternate versions, and remixes from the likes of Kuedo and Teklife.

Big L
Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous

A 25th anniversary re-issue on double vinyl for a minor classic of Nineties NYC hip-hop in the form of 1995’s Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous by Big L. The only album that the Harlem rapper released in his lifetime before being killed in a drive-by shooting in 1999, it housed classic singles in the shape of ‘Put It On’ and ‘M.V.P.’ as well as quality production work from the likes of Buckwild and Showbiz.

Ras G
Raw Fruit Vol. 5-6

Completed shortly before his tragically early passing last year at the age of just 40, Raw Fruit Vol. 5-6 is the final work from Los Angeles-based producer Ras_G. Filled with 26 of his typically understated, lo-fi hip-hop instrumentals, it’s been presented and released in the way that the artist himself intended. 

Baauer
Planet's Mad

Responsible for the viral (and immensely irritating) ‘Harlem Shake’ in what seems like a different age now, American producer Baauer gives us his second studio album, Planet’s Mad, a prescient title indeed. Four years on from his debut Aa, it’s an intelligent collection characterised by hard-hitting beats and rhythms influenced by trap, hip-hop and house. 

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Piñata

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s seminal collaborative LP 'Piñata' is an essential cop for each and every hip-hop fan. The 2014 record is full of gangsta rap that is elegant, tough, poetic and street-savvy all at once. Madlib’s on a career-best flex here, his beats rattling trunks even as they spiral off on all sorts of little trips. Gibbs provides the record with its grounding, spitting with the authority and potency of a man who has seen it all and lived to tell the tale. The pair’s legendary boast that 'Piñata' features "all the mother f*ckers in the rap game worth f*cking with" is borne out by a guestlist that includes Danny Brown, Mac Miller, Earl Sweatshirt, Scarface, Ab-Soul and many more. So, so good.

KinKai
A Pennies Worth

Though having his roots in Jamaica and Sierra Leone, rapper KinKai has spent his youth on the outskirts of Manchester where he saw enough poverty and social issues to inform his music. A Pennies Worth is his second album and blends breezy hooks and jazzy production touches on an album of laid back hip-hop with a witty delivery and a social conscience.

It follows 2017's Migration and 2019's fabric Presents compilation. Green is also responsible for the incredible photograph on the sleeve. It's a beautiful world isn't it?

Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist
Alfredo

Beastie Boys
Solid Gold Hits

Sometimes it's hard to know where to start with the Beastie Boys. They started out basically as children making near novelty rap before swinging by an unbelievable breadth of musical styles over their career. This 2005 era compilation just takes all the singles and best bits from 'Sabotage' to 'Fight For Your Right' to 'Shake Your Rump'.

Kate Tempest
The Book of Traps and Lessons

If you believe what you read, Kate Tempest has been working on The Book of Traps and Lessons - her third album - since she unleashed her classic debut Everybody’s Down in 2014. Whether this has been five years in the making or not, we’ve still been looking forward to it. She worked on the album with none other than Rick Rubin and South London producer, Dan Carey, who also worked on her 2017 album, Let Them Eat Chaos. On Fiction.

Public Enemy
It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

No hiphop collection should be without the 1989 breakthrough LP from PE. Chuck D’s lyrics and delivery matched with The Bomb Squad’s confrontational production represented a new high-water mark as to what rap could be capable of. The track listing is jaw-dropping - Bring the Noise, Don’t Believe the Hype, Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos, Rebel Without a Pause.... She Watch Channel Zero?! samples Def Jam labelmates Slayer, though it’s ironic to hear Flavor Flav being judgmental about viewing habits, having since been responsible for one of the worst sitcoms in TV history. Still, no questionable late career choices can overshadow this explosive statement of righteous black rage and defiance, that’s utterly uncompromising and iconic from the title down. Almost an hour’s worth crammed onto this LP but it sounds phenomenal.

Various
Black Panther: The Album – Music from and Inspired By

Probably the cultural event of 2018 that will live longest in the memory, Marvel’s Black Panther really is an outstanding film. A lot of the songs here don’t appear prominently in the movie, but there’s been enough hype around this accompanying LP in its own right. You know the score at this point - Kendrick Lamar plays auteur, bringing together a load of A-listers for this head-scratching, trunk-rattling selection. If nothing else, you need this for Future’s absolutely, masterfully, hilariously ridiculous verse on ‘King’s Dead’.

Earl Sweatshirt
Some Rap Songs

The prodigal son returns! Earl Sweatshirt serves up his third solo LP Some Rap Songs three years on the troubled I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. Well, we say LP - at just shy of 25 minutes, Some Rap Songs is as brief as they come. However, this brevity plays to the Off Future man’s strengths as he serves up a series of quick-fire impressionist hip-hop takes. He also sounds a little happier than before - some of the beats could almost be described as ‘sunny’.

The Allergies
Say The Word

Hot off the back of the Radio 6-playlisted success that was ‘Felony’ comes the fourth studio album from The Allergies. Just like their previous efforts, Say The Word is a kinetic mixture of chunky hip-hop beats, fluid funk and consistent grooves that arrives in time to brighten a blighted summer. 

A Tribe Called Quest
Midnight Marauders

Hailing from Queens, New York, A Tribe Called Quest remain one of the most influential hip-hop groups. Midnight Marauders was the band’s third album, originally released in 1993 and followed on from another of their classics, Low End Theory. Features the singles Electric Relaxation and Oh My God.

Earl Sweatshirt
Feet of Clay

A new 12” EP from the inscrutable and compelling Earl Sweatshirt, and one that sees him go even more introverted and brooding than his last full-length Some Rap Songs. With all seven tracks fitted on to one side of vinyl (the reverse bears an etching) Feet of Clay’s mood and atmosphere stems from the death of the rapper’s father in 2018. 

Dr. Dre
2001

A legend in West Coast hip hop, Dr. Dre's back-catalogue is chock-a-block with mega-hits. '2001' contains all the hallmarks of a blockbuster classic, with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dog and Eminem all making appearances. Described as 'uncharacteristically' sparse in the media, this record truly justfiys Dre's reputation as a 'composer' as much as a 'producer'.

Off the back of six tracks on Dr. Dre's 2015 record and a single with the wonderful Kaytranada, there's now an album in store for Anderson .paak. Following up a couple of 2014 releases, Malibu originally came out back in January and earned its hype with collabs from Schoolboy Q and The Game, amongst others. 

Eric B & Rakim
I Know You Got Soul

I Know You Got Soul was one of the funkier cuts from Eric B and Rakim’s seminal 1987 album, Paid In Full. It was released as their third single and contains a sample from Bobby Bird’s hit of the same name, which was produced by James Brown, no less. This was, in turn, sampled by M|A|A|R|S for their song Pump Up The Volume.  

Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz
Mona Lisa

So there’s this bit in Never Stop Never Stopping, the extremely underrated feature-length film from The Lonely Island, where Andy Samberg’s Justin Bieber-type character sings a song about the Mona Lisa. It’s so, so, so funny and has imprinted itself on the brain of this young blurb writer for the rest of time. As such, every time I see the words ‘Mona Lisa’ I can’t really pay attention to what’s going on for a while afterwards because I just start singing Samberg’s song in my head. Seriously, go watch it, it’s amazing. Basically I haven’t been able to concentrate long enough on Apollo Brown and Joell Ortiz’s collaborative LP Mona Lisa to properly appraise it. What I can tell you is that the tracks here are sort of rappity-ass rap music that will survive the nuclear holocaust. I can also confirm that it’s out on Mello Music Group.

Kanye West

Stormzy
Gang Signs & Prayer

I keep seeing him in my morning Metro. He tweets doesn't he? And he's gone from grime king to global superstar following appearances on Jools Holland and with Kanye. This record shows him immersing himself in the sort of songwriting and production that may have been unexpected from listening to his raw early work. It's already sold 69000 copies and is now out on vinyl.

Madlib
Shades Of Blue

A lovely album where prime beat maker Madlib was given the run of the Blue Note catalogue and was pretty much told 'do what you like'. Which as you might possibly be able to imagine was to use old sounds to create new and exciting shapes. Here, Madlib reworks sounds by the likes of Donald Byrd and Horace Silver to stunning effect. A true hip-hop visionary. 

Jme
Grime MC

Not content with being a top Grime MC, Jme also runs the label Boy Better Know, which his new album, also called Grime MC, is released on. It’s the long awaited follow-up to 2015’s brilliant Integrity> album. The album features guest spots from Skepta, Giggs and more and production from a whole host of people including Preditah and Tre Mission. Jme himself gets involved there too, of course.

Wiz Khalifa
Kush & Orange Juice

We're now getting anniversary releases of albums released in the 2010s. It has to be said though that Wiz Khalifa was an early proponent of mixtape culture and that Kush & Orange Juice never got a physical release first time round. It's a fun time mixtape with samples galore from Disney soundtracks, video games and all sorts. The theme of the album seems to consists of pre- Covid-19 concerns of partying, women and smoking dope. Those were the golden days, my friend.

The Streets
None Of Us Are Getting Out This Life Alive

None of Us Are Getting Out of This Alive is the 7th album by The Streets and Mike Skinner’s first new album in 9 years. It began as a mixtape before developing into a fully realised album. Given that this album is being released amid a global pandemic the title is perhaps a little pessimistic, but there you go. Guests include Tame Impala, IDLES, Jesse James Solomon and Chris Lorenzo.

Mac Miller
Watching Movies With The Sound Off

Time will tell if the late Mac Miller comes to be considered as one of the greats. What we can definitively say is that, despite him passing tragically young, Mac’s star will shine bright for years. Watching Movies With The Sound Off, Miller’s 2013 sophomore LP, was the record where people really started to take notice of this Jewish stoner from Pittsburgh. More musically and lyrically ambitious than Blue Slide Park, this crisp hip-hop record boasts an enviable features list that includes Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, The Creator. Watching Movies With The Sound Off has now been reissued via Rostrum.

Nas
Illmatic

Illmatic was the debut album from New York rapper, Nas. Upon its original release in 1994, when Nas was just 20 years old, East Coast hip-hop was losing its identity. Illmatic, with tracks like N.Y. State Of Mind, gave the genre’s birthplace a much needed shot in the arm.

Madlib
Pinata Beats

Sometimes releasing the instrumentals on their own LP feels a bit of a beg. Not in the case of ‘Pinata Beats’, though. Madlib productions tend to be worth a listen regardless of whether or not they’re adorned with vocals, but even when shed of Freddie Gibbs’ commanding thug-chat the classy hip-hop struts here represent fine work even by Madlib’s high standards. The Quentin Tarantino of the beat-making world.

LiteAce Frequency

Vex Ruffin makes what he calls 'Original Filipino Music' influenced by the 1970s Manila and Pinoy sounds taking in funk, tropicalia and hip-hop along the way all done with a DIY punk spirit at its core. LiteAce Frequency is his first full length for Stones Throw after an earlier EP and is a smorgasbord of sounds that would appeal to fans of the West Coast sounds of Dam-Funk, Toro Y Moi and Ariel Pink.

He's roped in a tantalizing array of artists, here working with Childish Gambino, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil B, Zack Fox & Louis Cole.
