LIGHTNIN' ROD HUSTLER'S CONVENTION Limited 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl LP

Overview:
HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL EDITION OF THE MASSIVELY INFLUENTIAL CLASSIC

In 1973 a fast-talking, hustler by the name of Sport played a huge part in the birth of Hip-Hop.

Brought to life by Lightnin’ Rod a.k.a Jalal Nuriddin of The Last Poets and backed by music from Kool & The Gang, Buddy Miles, Billy Preston and more, Hustlers Convention is a concept album documenting the rise and fall of Sport, a street gambler who ends up in jail after a shoot-out with the police.

His street tales of card games, throwing dice and chasing women influenced Wu Tang, Ice T, Public Enemy, Jungle Brothers and many more, while also playing a key role in establishing rap as an accepted modern musical art form.

A documentary about the album and its pivotal role in the evolution of hip hop is currently being made. The film features interviews with Chuck D, Melle Mel, KRS One Fab 5 Freddy and more.

This vinyl edition is pressed on heavyweight (180g) vinyl and is packaged in a gatefold sleeve.
