Video

  • Easily one of the greatest hip hop albums I have ever heard in my life an absolute masterpiece and I don't say that lightly top 10 in my opinion the production is damn near flawless.

  • Hello. I bought the regular album on vinyl (I mean the tracks including raps) - the sticker/label on the vinyl got all the tracks printed on it. But on this vinyl there are just the instrumental versions. Does anyone know of this faulty press??

  • Just picked up the Italian bootleg release. Mine are cream marbled (LP 2 is lighter). Sound is comparable to the CD version in my opinion (most likely a digital master). Ok for $20. Not as nice as the original but I wouldn't hesitate to spin it. Is what it is.

  • Not too sure what version I have...

    - Cat# RWK 1158-1
    - No insert (and although not in plastic wrap, record store where I purchased doesn't sell second hand records)
    - The back cover does not have a boarder
    - Inside of sleeve not white
    - inner ring on label is 3mm far from the W on logo.

  • Black Star, which consists of emcees Mos Def and Talib Kweli, is a very important hip-hop team up that took place in the late 90's. Classics such as "Definition", "Respiration", and "Theives In the Night" still give me chills! This is REAL hip-hop at its FINEST.
