Canibus - Instrumentals

I don't post as often as I used to but when I do I always come through with some shit! I don't know maybe its just me but I'm starting to see the quality of posts diminish. I hardly see any golden era shit be posted. Half the shit is from other blogs like HHB and Myspace . I always thought about all the Instrumental albums I would buy only if they were available. Theres definitely a market for Instrumental Hip Hop just look at what Large Pro & K-Def are doing. Its another avenue of revenue that Producers should start to realize & consider tapping into. On the real they should go back and re-release all that classic shit in instrumental format.

What would I buy if I could have any Instrumental album:

Smif-N-Wessun -Dah Shining
ATCQ - Low End Theory, Midnight Marauders & Beats, Rhymes & Life
LONS - Future Without A Past & T.I.M.E.
Jeru - Sun Rises & Wrath Of The Math
De La Soul - 3ft High, De La Soul Is Dead & Stakes Is High
Cypress Hill - Black Sunday
Heltah Skeltah - Nocturnal
T-Ray - Instrumental Comp
Baby Deda - The Original Baby Pa
Maestro Fresh Wes - Nah Dis Kid Can't Be From Canada
Redman - Muddy Waters
Gravediggaz - 6 Feet Deep
Funkdoobiest - Which Doobie U Be
MF Grimm - Scars & Memories
Organized Konfusion - Stress
Akinyele - Vagina Diner
Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt
House Of Pain - Self Titled & Same As It Ever Was
Black Sheep - A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing

The List could go on & on but you get the idea. Hopefully one day they will be available!

I hear you on the instrumentals. I find myself enjoying the beats more than the rhymes. I don't know if that's me being a beatmaker, or not being able to relate to the subject matter, but I wish they're were more full length instrumental LPs.
