Limited-edition vinyls from André 3000, Notorious B.I.G., Prince to be released
Exclusives from those artists and more to drop on Record Store Day
Held one Saturday every April since 2007, Record Store Day aims to celebrate independently-owned record stores and their customers with exclusive, limited, or previously-unreleased projects including rare singles, demos, covers, and merch. And this year will be no different.
Come April 22, here are a few items vinyl-lovers will be able to get their hands on.
The Notorious B.I.G., Born Again
Released December 7, 1999, Born Again has been out of print since the early 2000s, but its reissue–on gold vinyl and limited to 5,000 copies–comes as commemoration of the twentieth anniversary of the rapper’s death.
André 3000, “All Together Now”
The Outkast member recorded an “eclectic interpretation” of The Beatles’ song back in 2010 for a Nike commercial that aired during the NBA Finals. The 7″ single is limited to 5,000 copies and features the previously unreleased instrumental on the B-side.
Busta Rhymes, “Calm Down” feat. Eminem
Originally released in 2014, this marks the single’s first time ever on vinyl and will include the original version featuring Eminem, the “2.0” version with only Busta Rhymes, and the “3.0” version with Everlast of group House of Pain (whose song “Jump Around” is sampled on the track).
Danny Brown, “Ain’t It Funny”
This 10″ disc is limited to 1,300 copies and features artwork by the Braindead collective. Side A features “Ain’t it Funny”, which was recently featured in the trailer for Dragon Ball Z Super, while Side B features Danny’s collabo with Clams Casino collaboration, “Worth It.”
Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels fans can nab a blue, recycled-cotton canvas tote featuring a gold foil on the duo’s logo on one side and a five-color screen print on the other.
