Yet another short list though partly due to a bunch of Bay Area releases getting pushed back to next week. Lots of announcements coming out about interesting releases in coming weeks so things are picking up.

Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip - Logic of Chance [Vinyl/Import]

Yesterday I posted a special edition report, Near Misses & Late Arrivals, featuring recent albums that hadn't made it into the weekly reports by such folks as Haji P & DJ MF Shalem, EPMD, Maino, Bambu, District 2 District, Styles P & DJ Green Lantern and Obie Trice.

Pastor Troy - G.I. Troy: Strictly 4 My Soldiers album cover art

Pastor Troy - G.I. Troy: Strictly 4 My Soldiers

More ahead with some mild remodeling of this site to come in the next couple of weeks. Nothing dramatic but hopefully a nice environment for checking out album covers. I'll also be posting more album art each week than I've been doing in the past.

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 album cover art

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.

Chuck D's SLAMjamz also contributed to Haitian relief with KOMBIT pou HAITI.

Master P - Ghetto D: U.S.D.A. Edition album cover art

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.

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.
