AllMusic Review by

Best of Black Market Records, Vol. 1 is a comprehensive, 20-track collection that contains a selection of highlights from the underground hip-hop label. There's only a handful of artists on the compilation -- Brotha Lynch Hung, Mr. Doctor, X-Raided, Homicide and Cold World Hustler feature the most prominently -- but much of the record is good hardcore gangsta rap, even if none of it pushes the boundaries of the genre.
