Spellbound by Joe Sample

Spellbound by Joe Sample - !!!! With Jazz especially, words cannot adequately describe or express the creative exchange of vibes.  Still, I’ll give it a shot. Joe Sample’s Spellbound is Winter for me, but not cold. It actually provides warmth, comfort, and hope for Baydestrians as we navigate January. It’s a way to stay focused, proud and confident while I anxiously await the Spring thaw. Although Joe is from Houston, […]

Truth Be Told … by AZ

This right here!? THIS album highlights the importance of using a single, primary producer.  AZ, the rap veteran out of Queensbridge, New York, tapped the great Buckwild from DITC fame to bless this album entitled Truth Be Told.  We are fortunate to have another complete #noskips album that you’ll want to hear in its entirety. It’s a cold, gritty New York album that’s actually provides a warmth with its new […]

Midnight Marauders vs. Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

Well, if you’re reading this post it’s safe to say you heard both of these classic albums.  Matter fact, you might have memorized them word for word as I have.  Today marks their 30th anniversary and therefore signifies November 9th, 1993 as one of the most important dates in the past 50 years of Hip-Hop history.  So in the spirit of barbershop debate, let’s review A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight […]

GoodFellas by Show and A.G.

GoodFellas … by Show & A.G. - !!!! 1/4 The fact that this album stood out amongst the top releases of 1995 is saying a helluva lot!  GoodFellas is an authentic, gritty, grimey classic New York rap release from D.I.T.C. (Diggin in the Crates) affiliates Show & A.G.. It easily rivals other classics of the era like Dah Shinin, In a Major Way and Resurrection. This was their sophomore effort […]

Return of the Boom Bap by KRS-ONE

Return of the Boom Bap … by KRS-ONE - !!!!3/5 This month marks the 30th anniversary of KRS-ONE’s classic solo debut Return of the Boom Bap (ROTBB).  I am specifically highlighting this album because I can safely say its ranks amongst the greatest of alltime Hip-Hop classics.  I’ve even been known to say it is better than Nas’s Illmatic or Dre’s The Chronic (which is nothing but a credit to […]

Album Reviews (classic edition) – Characters by Stevie Wonder !!!!1/2

Sure, people know Stevie Wonder is one of the most genius, prolific musicians and song-writers of our time.  He has definitely received his flowers by now.  Still, one album seems to be underrated to this day.  His 1987 Motown release Characters did not chart as highly as many expected it to, but that does not diminish from its impact on my life. Characters has a song for all seasons.  The […]
