    In this book, instrumental Hip-Hop records from the obscure depths of the underground or well-known Hip Hop acts, are catalogued alphabetically by artist and a photograph of the record's label. Each entry specifies the artist, title, format, producer, label, year and catalogue number as well as notes and anecdotes about the disc. Many were pressed in such small numbers that they'll never be seen outside the pages of this book.
