Brand New Heavies - Heavy Rhyme Experience Vol. 1 (30th Anniversary)- I adore this album and have since it came out. Mixing a fantastic funk/soul band with a host of top tier MC’s, Heavy Rhyme Experience is a fantastic album with a foot firmly in multiple genres. Long ahead of its time when it was released in 1992, the album includes airtight rhymes by the likes of Gang Starr (“It’s Gettin’ Hectic”), The Pharcyde (“Soul Flower”), Kool G. Rap (“Death Threat”), and Masta Ace Incorporated (“Wake Me When I’m Dead”), all underscored by the Brand New Heavies’ live, laid-back grooves.

Prince - The Gold Experience - The Gold Experience was the first full-length Prince album to be credited to his unpronounceable symbol, and was released at the most public, heated stage of his battle with the major label industrial complex. With the word “SLAVE” written on one cheek, Prince shined on the opulent ballads “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” and “Gold” and the defiant single “Eye Hate U,” and the album earned widespread critical acclaim.
