Stones Throw’s Vex Ruffin and legendary Yo! MTV Raps host and visual artist Fab 5 Freddy have teamed up to create new track “The Balance.” Fab’s first musical project in 30 years since “Change the Beat,” the 12-inch includes original vocal, instrumental, and two remixes. Fab 5 Freddy on creating “The Balance”: “I liked the way this idea organically developed and I began to see my involvement as a sort of art performance piece. The track reminded me of cool dance records that downtown NY DJ’s played back then in the 80’s at places like The Mudd Club, The Garage, Area, Danceteria and Nells where I hung out so I put myself in that mindset when working on my lyrics for this song.”

Limited edition of 500 copies. The Ill Adrenaline Records camp continues to push forward with pure unapologetic boom bap hip-hop. In 2012 Beneficence and AG (of D.I.T.C.) released the now classic collabo track/video for “All Real”, the strongest cut off Benef's much sought after underground smash album "Concrete Soul". The duo veterans are back at it once again with visuals and a limited edition 12” for the Jazz Spastiks produced track “Smooth Hardcore”, taken off the critically acclaimed LP "Basement Chemistry” (2016). The single contains the original album version plus a 90’s ultra-jazzy remix from legendary producer K-Def (Real Live, LL Cool J, Tragedy, Lords of the Underground, Ghostface Killah, etc.), and a Latin flavor remix from up-and-coming beatsmith Brous One.

Limited Texas-shaped vinyl pressing! "Int'l Players Anthem (I Choose You)" by U.G.K. is one of the most recognizable Hip Hop songs of the 2000s. This is the kind of record that can be heard anywhere, from car shows in Texas to basement parties in Brooklyn, maybe even at your cousin's wedding. This song is so good that at the 2007 BET Hip Hop Awards Kanye West famously gave his Video Of The Year award to U.G.K. after "Stronger" beat "Int'l Players Anthem". Let's also not forget it's Grammy Nomination. Yes, it's that good. U.G.K.'s celebratory anthem also features Outkast and the groups combine as one over a very hypnotic Three 6 Mafia produced beat. The sample used is Willie Hutch's "I Choose You" from the movie The Mack, which is the perfect backdrop for Andre 3000, Pimp C (R.I.P.), Bun B and Big Boi to spit tales of women, money, and marriage. The song starts off with Andre 3000 rhyming over the elegant doo-wop vocal harmonies until a stuttered drum kick changes the mood for Pimp C to spit fire. This beat change/mood switch happens each verse, fitting each rapper's personality and tone, kudos to DJ Paul and Juicy J for expertly crafting this record. For Black Friday Record Store Day, Get On Down presents "International Players Anthem" as a special collectible vinyl release shaped like U.G.K.'s home state of Texas!

After spending 13 years in Queens, New York, Lewis Parker returned to London in early 2015. Release The Stress is the first new material released since his return. The topic of the song is fairly self explanatory dealing with the everyday pressure of living, in a fast pace modern city environment. Lewis speaks on he's production and how he balances this with day to day life. The production captures the feel of the classic 90's hip hop but with a polished and very musical feel to it. Phat gritty SP drums, deep hypnotic bass lines, lush strings, catchy flutes, a dope late night sax, ill synths and wah guitars make this production up there with Lewis's best work.

Hip Hop has never seen another album quite like Ol’ Dirty Bastard's 1995 solo debut Return to the 36 Chambers. With RZA guiding production, the album allowed Dirty the creative license to make one of the most bizarre, entertaining and original LPs in the history of the genre. Return became an instant hit, selling over 1 million copies and earning a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album. The album stands as a high water mark in the Wu-Tang Clan's collective creative output and was selected as one of the Best 100 Rap Albums by The Source. In honoring the legacy of one of hip-hop's most innovative releases, Get On Down is proud to present this incredible shaped picture disc. The vinyl features the first two singles, Brooklyn Zoo & Shimmy Shimmy Ya, released from this seminal full-length and is a recreation of the iconic “food stamp card” that serves as the album’s cover art.

Boyz-n-the-Hood is the debut by Eazy-E as a part of N.W.A. Ice Cube was 17 years old when he wrote the track and took it to Eazy-E. A short time later, Eazy and Cube formed N.W.A with Dr. Dre, and included this song on the N.W.A and the Posse album. Eazy-E released yet another version of the song the following year on his 1988 solo album, Eazy-Duz-It. Continuing with its Respect The Classics campaign UMe will be reissuing this classic title back on vinyl for the first time in years.
Grand Official has been doing their thing for a while. They are traditional or roots Hip Hop. Banging kicks and snares created and crafted by their producer Grip. The two songs are full of amazing scratches and cuts by DJ Hallucin8 who on the song Show & Prove performs a complete 16 bar verse with nothing but scratches and quotes from dope hip hop songs. On another song called The Stand, DJ Hallucin8 once again kills it with the needle, cutting a Fat Joe quote with style. Abadose and Adlife are the MC’s, but on The Stand they bring in two other MC’s. One is Saints from the legendary and worldwide graffiti crew STP. And the other Mc is named Once. His voice is sometimes compared to Tuna Fish of Jurassic. Abadose and Adlife have recorded and performed together for a long time, and you sense their chemistry as they contrast each other perfectly with both voices and styles.
