Sound Providers – An Evening With The Sound Providers (2004)

Here’s the debut ABB release of the SoCal Jazz Rap group Sound Providers. Like other Californian groups of the same genre, the Sound Providers cleverly mash boom-bap styled hip-hop with smooth jazz blends. The album features guest appearances from Little Brother, The Procussions, Asheru and others. Fans of People Under the Stairs, INI, Crown City Rocks, and Kero One will love this one, but fans of old school cats like Tribe, De La Soul, and Pete Rock & CL Smooth should be able to feel this release as well. Download it and if you like it, cop it here.

Blackalicious – The Craft (2005)

This is the junior album from the legendary underground Cali duo, Blackalicious. I was first introduced to Blackalicious in the 10th grade (about three years ago… give or take) by a friend named Kevin. Kevin was heavy into Aesop Rock, Sole, and Deep Puddle Dynamics at the time so I was certain Black would be something to abstract and left field for me to really enjoy, but after weeks (maybe months) of his nagging and bitching I finally listened to their 2nd LP, Blazing Arrows. To my dismay I greatly enjoyed the album and Kevin won. Anywho, as much as I enjoyed Black’s aforementioned sophomore album, I feel as if The Craft is an all around better album. Better production, better rhymes… shit just flows more nicely than Blackalicious’ other two joints. If you’re a fan of Lyrics Born (who’s a member of another of MC Gift of Gab’s crews), People Under the Stairs or Jurassic 5, make sure to check on this one.

People Under The Stairs – The Om Years: Favorites, Rarities & B-Sides (2008)

Posted some P.U.T.S. a while back and had to post this as soon as I saw it. For the ultimate P.U.T.S. fan or just for those who are trying to get into them (which it isn’t hard to do). Any fan of that Ol’ Boom Bap in the tradition of West Coast groups like Hieroglyphics, Souls of Mischief, Living Legends and The Pharcyde will dig this one. As always if you like it, buy it here.

People Under The Stairs – The Next Step (1998)
