Haji P & DJ MF Shalem - Neighborhood Kid
This special edition of Weekly Hip Hop Albums focuses on a handful of interesting releases missing from our regular weekly report over the last few months like Haji P and DJ MF Shalem's Neighborhood Kid which has my favorite album cover this report.
Tomorrow will bring our regular report which you can receive separately each week by signing up for our free weekly newsletter delivered every Monday with Tuesday's releases.
Hope For Haiti Now
Two of the more significant Haiti relief releases missed the weekly report including Hope For Haiti Now, an all-star album for Haiti relief, that was released January 22nd.
SLAMjamz - KOMBIT pou HAITI
Chuck D's SLAMjamz also contributed to Haitian relief with KOMBIT pou HAITI.
EPMD - Strictly Business: U.S.D.A. Edition
A number of Uncut Snoop Dogg Approved reissues came out February 23rd but I managed to miss EPMD's classic Strictly Business: U.S.D.A. Edition till after the fact.
Maino - Unstoppable [EP]
Maino released the Unstoppable EP January 29th.
Bambu - Paper Cuts
Bambu, a former member of Native Guns, released the Paper Cuts EP January 23rd.
District 2 District - Elusive
District 2 District dropped a production album featuring a variety of MC's, Elusive, February 23rd on Domination Recordings. DR also recently released Count Bass D & DJ Pocket's In The Loop and seem to have an approach to PR guaranteed to keep them out of the weekly reports!
Styles P & DJ Green Lantern - The Green Ghost Project
Styles P & DJ Green Lantern dropped a mixtape, The Green Ghost Project, on February 2nd and gave it the album treatment. It did well and I was negligent in omitting it.
Obie Trice - Special Reserve
We'll end this special report with a shot of Obie Trice's Special Reserve, a mixtape produced by MoSS.
