The Pharcyde + A Tribe Called Quest Two fine examples of the innocent sounds of 1990′s hip-hop, when everything was just… a lot more fun. At least to me, feel-good hip-hop groups like The Pharcyde and A Tribe Called Quest, are timeless.
The Animals 1960′s, Bad-ass, I’m-going-to-eff-you-up, dirty-blues sounding, rock-pop. Listen to The House of the Rising Sun and try not to break a glass bottle on a chain linked fence. I dare ya.
Handsome Boy Modeling School One of hip-hop’s best kept secrets. True collaborations orchestrated by super producers & heavyweight envelope pushers, Prince Paul and Dan The Automator. Uncommon, innovative pairings of musicians, hitting most songs out of the park. A perfect package all stitched up with funny, yet bizarre skits—this album is a steal at $5.99!
RZA as Bobby Digital Great production by the wise one who brought you Wu-Tang Clan, as well as sky blazing soundtracks and scores to some of your favorite movies, like Kill Bill. I’ve always appreciated RZA for his intelligence, uniquely sounding dorky voice and the fact that he’s a chess champion in real life.
Johnny Cupcakes is the original unordinary bakeshop.
After starting out of the trunk of a car in 2001, Johnny Cupcakes has grown to be an exclusive, international brand with "faux-bakeries" in Boston, London and Los Angeles. Over the past 10 years, an inspiring community of collectors has formed, prompting customers to camp outside the stores for up to two weeks for limited edition product releases.
