As Elise from Reign in Blonde just pointed out:

Amazon is having a $5 music sale.

Since RiB is about metal, they have pointed out some choice picks you should have. Go check it out, you should be reading them every day anyway.

Since 2-11 lacks focus reflects a more generalist approach. I will point out some choice hip hop.

The Blakroc album. Which is Akron’s own Black Keys with a variety of hip-hop luminaries.

GZA – Pro Tools. I haven’t bumped the GZA since Liquid Swords, but for $5 I may check this out.

Cannibal Ox – The Cold Vein. This is pretty essential. You should get this.

Get Busy Committee – Uzi Does It. A top 10 of 2009 winner. You are FAILING AT LIFE if you do not buy this album. Stop blowing it, turn your life around. Get this.

They also have Andrew Bird and the Mysterious Production of Eggs, which, if I remember correctly, is on my top albums of the decade list. If it isn’t there, it should be.

Also, there’s some Mos Def.

The Peanut Butter Wolf mix is pretty worthwhile too, but it’s a single 45-minute track that Amazon charges the $5 for, that you can also download on lala for 89 cents:

That’s value right there.
