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.

Bed

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.

Thundercat
It Is What It Is

No McDonald and Loggins this time but Thundercat follows up the expansive, at times baffling 'Drunk' with another tour de force of his nimble-fingered funk, soul and hip-hop. Fifteen more tracks of blissful, laid back sunshine vibes topped off with his distinctive sweet vocals and virtuoso bass playing. 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. Four (count 'em) different vinyl versions to choose from at the time of launch. Released through Flying Lotus' esteemed Brainfeeder label (naturally). 

John Paul
Subjects

An associate of the iconic Sleaford Mods before embarking on his own career a few years back, John Paul releases his second solo record on Harbinger Sound. More abrasive than previous album No Filter and produced by UK scene veteran Ratman, Subjects provides a wry, scathing insight into Britain’s decaying society and infrastructure. 

J Hus
Big Conspiracy

Following its digital release back in January, whereupon it reached the top of the UK charts and attracted universal acclaim, the second studio album from British rapper J Hus comes to vinyl. On the heels of his Mercury-nominated debut Common Sense and his much-publicised stint in jail, Big Conspiracy is a career-defining moment.

Everything Is Recorded
Friday Forever

Friday Forever is the follow-up to the Mercury Music Prize nominated eponymous debut by Everything Is Recorded. It is released through XL Recordings, which is rather convenient as the man behind this particular mask is XL head honcho Richard Russell. There are guest spots for some new artists such as Aitch, FLOHIO and Berwyn, Maria Somerville, Kean Kavanagh, A.K. Paul, James Massiah, Infinite Coles and well-known names such as Ghostface Killah and Penny Rimbaud of Crass - a varied bunch. I think you’ll like this. Yes, you, reading this.

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.

The first Run The Jewels record capped a victory lap of a year for producer EL-P and rapper Killer Mike, who respectively released the bombastic 'Cancer 4 Cure' and poignant 'R.A.P Music' -- they then went on to release their collaborative self-titled record, which showed off the affection and understanding they share for each other's work. They're back now with the blood red 'Run The Jewels 2'.

Travis Scott
Astroworld

Travis Scott’s name may sound like one of those overly patriotic new country singers but I can assure you that he is something quite different. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Public Enemy
Fear Of A Black Planet

Chuck D. and Co.’s third album will hit 25 in 2015, so this vinyl reissue couldn’t come any sooner. In fact, Fear of a Black Planet hasn’t been repressed since 2000! Really, there’s very little that can be said about Public Enemy that hasn’t been said already -- deadly serious political raps coupled with still incomparable wall-of-sound production courtesy of the Bomb Squad. What more could you want from a hip-hop album?

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 deluxe edition comes with expanded liner notes, photos, alternate versions, and remixes from the likes of Kuedo and Teklife.

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.

Delaware-based rapper and producer ZekeUltra mixes hip-hop, ambient, jazz, and blues using samples from worn-out sources - or treating them to sound as such.

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.

The Roots
Undun

Undone by The Roots was their 10th album. It’s a concept album telling the story of the fictional Redford Stevens and his struggle through poverty and his tragic death, starting at the end and working backwards.

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'.

A key release from Oakland’s Hieroglyphics hip-hop collective in the early Nineties, 93 ‘Til Infinity was the debut album from Souls of Mischief.

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.  

Beastie Boys
The In Sound From Way Out!

Yes, it's the most instrumental of all their canon -- it's the Beastie Boys with a timely reissue of The In Sound From Way Out!

Of course with the good ol' super sleazy keyboard sounds of Money Mark. Shake your rump, indeed.

Wilma Vritra
Burd

Persistently inventive hip-hop release from Wilma Vrita, the collaboration London producer Wilma Archer and LA rapper Pyramid Vrita. ‘Burd’ has this slurred hybrid sound that appears open to any source it comes across. It’s a world weary record, on single ‘Targets & Digits’ Pyramid Vrita reflects the toxic climate with an acute gaze, Wilma Archer providing a necessarily exhausted backdrop.

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.

Jean Grae & Quelle Chris
Everything's Fine

New album from the recently engaged hip-hop artists Jean Grae and Quelle Chris. A political album about our impulse, when every conceivable thing is going wrong, to say Everything's Fine. They do this with help from comedians Michael Che, Hannibal Buress, Nick Offerman, John Hodgman. Comedians after all are often the best at deconstructing the weird things people do.

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’.

Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Austerity Dogs is the 6th album by Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods, but it’s the one that got them noticed. Since its release in 2013, the band have gone from strength to strength, being a necessary mouthpiece and cathartic outlet for many in the these austere times. They mix a punk snarl with pepped-up hip-hop beats and socially aware lyrics to make an original, energetic, angry and often witty statement that has become essential.

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.
