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.
- Barcode: 6 01617 11581 3
- runouts:
Matrix / Runout (Side A): RWK-1158-A1
Matrix / Runout (Side B): RWK-1158-B1

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.
