Men of the Hour - Cops Ain't Sh.T to Me RARE Hip-Hop 12"
Condition EX- We grade conservatively
Here are a pair of joints from Al Kapone’s (then MC Al) old crew Men of the Hour on Bazooka records (also home to Radical T). “Cops Ain’t Shit” is the standout, with its “Triggerman” loop and NWA inspired police hatred (the canned guitars I could do without, but whatever). I’m generally not a fan of rappers not named Bushwick Bill rapping about how psychotic they are, but “Psycho” is kind of nice, I suppose. More braggadocio than horrorcore.
According to Ronnie Sarig’s Third Coast Men of the Hour cut a full length for On Top but the tapes were boosted from the studio. Looks like a job for those Top Shelf jokesters. I am saying that Al Kapone should record an entire full length in character as if it is 1991.

NM or M- (NEAR MINT or MINT MINUS) The vinyl is virtually flawless, bright and shiny. A very minor, barely visible scuff or two may be permitted, but no scratches. No audible noise when played.
EX or VG++ (EXCELLENT or VERY GOOD ++) Disc plays near perfectly, but may have minor paper scuffs that do not interfere with the sound quality.
VG+ (VERY GOOD PLUS) Some visible surface wear, very minor scratches and scuffs, but minimal impact on the sound quality. Vinyl will still have good luster; labels may have minor imperfections (small labels or initials, etc.) but otherwise clean.
VG (VERY GOOD) Vinyl will have noticeable scratches or scuffs that cause minor surface noise, but do not overpower the music. There will be no skips. Vinyl may appear somewhat
dull and grayish. Labels may have small tears, tape marks, larger writing, etc. but still easily legible. There may be wear or deformation of the spindle hole.
G (GOOD) Well-played, dull, grayish vinyl with deeper scratches and wear causing distracting surface noise (hisses, pops, cracks and other nasties). The record will still play through without any skips. Labels may be significantly defaced or damaged.
