Positive K
Positive K The Skillz Dat Pay The Bills 4th&Broadway • 1992

Straight out the First Priority camp came Pos K ready to blow the spot. 'I Got A Man' was a big hit in the States but the album never got too much credit. Not the credit it deserved anyway. This album is a magnificent piece of hip-hop with fresh funky beats and clever rhymes.

Priest Da Nomad
Priest Da Nomad Mr. Moov Sumthin' SPP Waxworks • 2005

'Mr Moov Sumthin' moves you to think, to nod your head, to dance and even to laugh. The production by The Unknown, Dayjuva, Cyrus and Oddisee is not groundbreaking at all but it has this strong, persistent but at the same time relaxed, soulful vibe, confident just like the emcee. Now please excuse us, as we keep this pumping for a while.

Prince Paul
Prince Paul Hip Hop Gold Dust Antidote • 2005

'Hip Hop Gold Dust' introduces the average Prince Paul fan (read: average hip-hop fan) to a lot of unknown essentials, it pleases rap geeks with unreleased jewels and vinyl heads get those treasures with a better sound quality, because some of the songs on this record were originally pressed on vinyl with a low sound.

Priority One
Priority One Total Chaos Tuff City • 1989

This is a record with attitude, pumpin bass lines, rollin drums and some electro breaks. Dope, def, devastating… Priority One Posse has left a mark in the last year of a remarkable hip-hop decade.

Private Investigators
Private Investigators React Like Ya Knew Virgin • 1993

This album’s only pressed on CD, so vinyl addicts have to sin for this one, cuz it’s a pretty decent album. In fact, it’s a great album.

Prizm
Prizm Soliloquy Kayce Productions • 2005

The album reflects a melancholic, moody atmosphere like 'Fine Line (Portrait of a Man)' for instance; 'He used to pray, so peace could last for the moment, all of his life, he was tossed around like sand in the ocean' Prizm raps over a voilin driven beat.

Prozack Turner
Prozack Turner Not Everybody Sleeps At Night - • 2017

Prozack Turner rhymes about his passion for real rap (a lot of winks to rap history), his source of inspiration (the night, hence the album's title) and his beloved home turf of Oakland ('High Enough' with Brother Ali).
