Black Buffalo: BBR-004 ft. Wordburglar

"Channel Halifax is a classic boom box jam love letter to Halifax" performed by Wordburglar but not enough, cause the flip side is a classic Wordburglar hit from 2006, produced by Jorun Bombay - a beat maker I'd blindly buy absolutely everything.

The 7" is available in three colours: blue, orange and traditional black. “Channel Halifax” is the very first 7” vinyl single from Wordburglar and it comes in full color picture sleeve.

On The Good Foot: OTGFM-003 ft. Private Identity

The year was 1989 when Def Jam Blaster and MC 3-2 were recording songs under the group name "Private Identity".

At that time, both were affiliated with Short Stop Records and so both are also on the cover of the 1989 Scarface (DJ Akshen) 12". Though nothing was ever released by the group in 1989. 

MC 3-2 went on to sign a deal with Rap-A-Lot and became part of The Convicts with partner Big Mike in 1991, Blac Monks in 1994 and he was also a member of the Screwed Up Click.

The 7" is limited 300 copies pressed on yellow colored wax. The package comes with picture sleeve, 11"x17" poster & 4"x4" sticker.

A: Look At Me Now
B: Massive Murda

Boot: BEP-013 ft. Micall Parknsun

Die hard UK hip-hop heads are surely familiar with the skillz of Micall Parknsun who dropped his vinyl debut in 2004. 

For me this artist was new but recently Christian posted this new vinyl release and so convinced to buy the actual 12" featuring 3 tracks plus instrumentals. "Tag Team" features vocals by Jehst who supported Micall already on previous releases. 

Boot pressed 100 copies of the "Practicing Tag Team Moves" EP, delivered in full color picture cover - surely it will be sold out pretty soon.

Dope Folks: DF-0082 ft. 5 Bros Wit Ugly Clothes

Rare and high on demand by collectors is the "Come Out To Play Again" by Washington's 5 Bros With Ugly Clothes. Reason enough to re-press the EP that was originally released on Eloh Bro Records in 1994.

But not enough, the EP features 3 additional tracks, previously unreleased that round up the EP and makes it another collectors item.

Their 1998 release "Believe In The Five" is also worth a listen, lets hope Dope Folks gives it a repress in the future and so completes all our collection with 5 Bros discography.

A: The Sad Truth (Interlude)
A: 5 Bros Rock On
