Make sure you buy Cold Case Files: Vol 2 which is the 7th album released by hardcore rap group Onyx. It was released in August 2012, and features 16 tracks that were never released for one reason or another.
It is unique to Onyx as it is their first album to be available in digital format only – purchase it at http://OnyxDomain.com. The group claims they want to test the waters and see how many fans purchase it, even though they offer (a lower quality version) the album for free on Youtube. The Youtube upload was only at 96kbps, whereas the purchase gives you 256kbps sound quality. It is also the first album where 100% of the money for the purchase goes to members of Onyx.
It is most notable for containing the previously-thought-to-have-been-lost-forever Biggie Smalls track “Flip Dat Shit” which was recorded with Onyx in 1993.
