Faculty Phar From Home D&H Records • 2007

Far from being unoriginal, far from being monotonous and far from soundin too Oxnard, this album is a refreshing piece from the Left Coast, reviving the most honoured hedonistic sounds the West is and was known for, theme-and skit-wise, while delivering consciousness at the same time. 'Phar from Home' ain’t breaking no barriers but it’s breaking a leg or ten, get down to it!

Fat Ray & Black Milk
Fat Ray & Black Milk The Set Up Music House • 2008

Two third of Detroit’s BR Gunna, aka the group mostly known for their 'Dirty District vol 2' album and productions on Slum Village’s 'Detroit Deli' or – and their solo names will ring a bigger bell by now- Fat Ray and Black Milk, are releasing this 11-track EP on Milk’s own Music House, which makes Black Milk one of the busiest artists of the year.

Father Dom
Father Dom Father Dom T-Cap • 1991

This album is a must-have for mid-school fans, having that typical begin-90’s sound of jazz and funk samples. However, the album is very hard to find on vinyl and even on CD , so keep your eyes open for this one.

Finale
Finale A Pipe Dream And A Promise Interdependent Media • 2009

A pamphlet of blue-collar heroism, a story that has never been more relevant than in today’s economic slump. Get out of the dirt and follow your dreams, an adagio where ninety percent of the Motor Citizens can relate to.

First Priority Music Family
First Priority Music Family Basement Flavor First Priority Music • 1988

The First Priority compilation consists of tracks that didn’t appear on the artist’s albums: exclusive dope material. Track by track is superb King of Chill production.

It sounds like a sunny Sunday afternoon in the fall. But yo! Ain’t that just like the picture on the front sleeve?

Freddie Foxxx
Freddie Foxxx ... Is Here MCA • 1989

'Freddie Foxxx Is Here' is a fresh mix of funky tracks, smooth love songs and rugged, up-tempo beats. Of all the albums Freddie (and Bumpy) made, this is definitely the most funkiest one.
