 Abstract Rude & Tribe Unique Showtyme! add to cart

(Keep The Feel Ent.)

Abstract Rude stands as an example of longevity in the game. Having worked with other west coast luminaries, he has definitely established himself in today's finicky Hip Hop game. Many records later he has teamed up again with Tribe Unique to create Showtyme! This album contains the same elements that made all of their previous albums together so great. Showtyme! is a marriage of chill beats and calm, yet exact rhyme schemes and dazzling vocal talent. More high quality music coming out of Los Angeles. What more can you ask for?  Contains favorites: "All Day", "Coolin", "In nevada" and "Get Live" with Swollen Members.

Abstract Rude produced by Kenny Segal Eyes Wide Shutish add to cart

Abstract Rude presents...Eyes Wide Shutish: short rhymes vol.1. This 6 program mixtape produced & mixed by Kenny Segal aka DJ Syndakit of On Point DJ crew is equal parts weirdly spooky & head noddingly entertaining with subliminally laced lyrics by Ab Rude all throughout. The disc was the soundtrack to a special party thrown by Lucinda Kriefel on Abbey's 1st time performing in Kansas City back in 2007 with DJ Artistic, but Rude decided to make it available online. A good lil 20 minute mixtape for your car ride. Pick it up u won't be mad Kenny got open with the production!

Abstract Tribe Unique Underground Fossils add to cart

An Abstract Tribe Unique classic, Underground Fossils points out that simplicity in rap text can be just as impressive as and potentially more poignant than that of complexity. Produced in full by Fatjack the Elephant, most of these tunes were originally recorded on the group's Grand Royal demo, but were too sample heavy to clear the Mood Pieces lp. Fatjack's crazy sample finding ability led to a dizzying ride on this 1 for the ages ep. Contains the urban legend: "Slow Lights."

 

 Abstract Tribe Unique South Central Thynk Taynk add to cart

South Central Thynk Taynk is an aural presentation of further experimentation with Hip Hop, soul, reggae, R&B, and more. Abstract Tribe Unique come together to expose their further explorations in genre bending. With the eclectic sounds of Fat Jack riding shotgun, Abstract Rude lays down his conscious rhymes of the everyman. This record has the subtle power of soulful stimulation. Abstract Rude calls for his listeners to visualize, idealize, and mobilize. South Central Thynk Taynk is a West Coast manifesto for electric relaxation.

 

  Abstract Tribe Unique Mood Pieces add to cart

Abstract Tribe Unique take you on an out of body experience with their 1998 release, Mood Pieces. This was the lp originally recorded in 1995 for Beastie Boys' Grand Royal label. In a turn from harsher, darker soundscapes, Fat Jack puts forth beats that span from ambient to soul and reggae, creating a sound reminiscent of, yet predating neo-soul. Fat's buddy and hip-hop legend DJ Slip (of Compton's Most Wanted fame) contributed production on a few songs & also mixed the entire lp in his own studio. The sparse instrumentation is the perfect setup for Abstract Rude's trademark precise flow. This Project Blowed legend attacks the beat with calculated ferocity, breaking combos and neckbones along the way. With this record, released 2 years after its target release date, Abstract Tribe Unique presents an experiment in more sensual and sensitive vibes.

Abstract Rude Making More Tracks add to cart

Abstract Rude presents Making More Tracks, the 2nd installment in his Making Tracks interim disc series. Released in 2004 after the Showtyme! lp, Making More Tracks made fans of Ab Rude pleasantly surprised by this energetic followup to what they thought was a one time only deal back in 2002. Pulling from classic features on forgotten compilations & collab tracks on homie's old lps, Abbey then added some cool new tunes with Fatjack, Kenny Segal, Nikko & DJ Drez. Guests include Kool Dj EQ, Resin Dogs and members of Living Legends.


Abstract Rude Making Tracks add to cart

Abstract Rude presents...Making Tracks, the 1st installment in his interim disc series. Released in 2002 after the P.A.I.N.T lp, Making Tracks is made up of Ab's favorite bumps at the time. Features five new releases and many impossible-to-find tracks previously released on obscure collections. Ab made this disc to familiarize newer fans with older material, and of course to have an additional product to sell while touring on the road. It turned out to be a great idea that he went on to continue with 3 more installments to date. Includes underground hits "Ain't Nothing To It", "213 to 619 Adjacent" w/ DJ Artistic, "B-Boy Real McCoy" w/ Aceyalone and "Rolling Along" w/ Moka Only.
