NVA: Straight from the Crate, Vol. 1

Originally released as a series of limited-edition 12" records for DJs and underground beat heads, NVA: Straight from the Crate is compiled here for the first time on one CD. Recruiting some of the heaviest hitters in underground hip-hop, it has its moments of pure brilliance and moments of filler. Mos Def makes a strong return with "Workin' It Out," one of the strongest tracks on the CD. Detroiters Slum Village make an appearance and take a shot at being the album's finest hour; that particular kudos goes to Pharcyde's brilliant collaboration with Charli 2Na and Akil of Jurassic 5, who hit the ball out of the park with the sure-shot "Hard Times." Overall, it's a solid compilation for serious beatheads and fanatics, and to have the Pharcyde track alone is worth the price of the CD.
