    80s hip hop, but not NWA, per Storf AMA. Not sure of any other clues.

    My guess: KMD - Mr. Hood. It’s 80s and it’s hip hop. But is it essential? o_O

    That album got released in 1991 :ROFLMAO:

    It feels more like it would be a Rap & Hip-Hop ROTM than an Essentials pick, even though it's a great record!

    No, because the current pressing sounds amazing! I love that album but because we have a current pressing that you can get brand new in the stores, like in the VMP store, it will not be a VMP Esssentials ROTM.

    If it’s 80’s Essentials Hip Hop it’s gotta be pretty huge, and this choice fits and would be so great. *fingers crossed*

    Except they just stocked the store with Boutique last month

    I’ll blindly guess
    Run-DMC - King of Rock

    I mean, Clipse the same month Snoop was a side sub. I don't know that we can parse what is and is not essential.

    But it won’t be that because they are already selling the album in store!

    Since there are no more clues yet I'm gonna go with Run DMC - s/t from 1984

    I don't think it has to be huge. Look at Ayalew Mesfin - cool story there, but it wasn't high profile artist/album.
