EPMD: Strictly Business (25th Anniversary Edition)

The rundown of classic albums from 1988 is astounding. 1988 also marked the debut of EPMD. Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith stepped into an arena already filled with other would-be greats and staked their own claim with Strictly Business.

Like the Man Says, When the Face Got Revealed, Game Got Real

Ghostface Killah rose through the ranks of Wu-Tang Clan, paid his dues, and deserves his rightful place as the savior of the Wu-Tang regime.

Music

Pusha T: My Name Is My Name

The Gemstar razor, baking soda, mason jar, dinner plate and cocaine never left the kitchen, and while it may seem that the brick isn't as pure as it could be, the end result is just as potent as it's ever been.

Music

Goodie Mob: Age Against the Machine

At times, the forward sound of Age Against the Machine has the feel of a Gnarls Barkley album, but the content is anything but that. Through and through, the subject matter here makes it all but certain that this is a Goodie Mob album.

"My Philosophy" Is Still Fresh After 25 Years

On Boogie Down Productions' "My Philosophy", rapper KRS-One was as lyrically poignant as he's ever been, delivering rhymes that are just as relevant today as they back in 1988.

20 Years of "Summertime" (video)

It's hard to fathom that the tune was released 20 years ago, but "Summertime" was and it likely will continue to be the quintessential summer jam for many years to come.

Music

The Electric: Life Is Moving

The album's running time may be a bit long for the tastes of some, but things move along fairly quickly here...especially if you're up and shaking your ass.

IMAKEMADBEATS x Butta Verses: Daylight EP

For such a short project, Daylight manages to keep its focus. Other projects of this size can usually be sniffed out as just some random songs that were thrown together for the sake of releasing them and calling it an EP.
