Just for variety's sake here is something for your iPod other than dancehall, punk, and Big L.
An all-black early punk pioneer group from Detroit. This album wasn't released for over 30 years. That's pretty crazy in of itself. Other than that it's just a good record.
Death "For The Whole World To See"
Probably one of the most sampled records of all time. ESG was an all-girl lo-fi funk group. This is one of those you should have this records. Try and imagine a band like Le Tigre without the whole militant lesbian noise punk vibe and add good simple drums and bass.
ESG "Come Away With Me"
