When I was younger, I anticipated going to Circuit City every Tuesday to buy a new album. Nowadays, I just download them from the convenience of my sofa. Unless you’re super dedicated to this thing called hip-hop, everyone appreciates a collector’s item.
Did you know that two of Kanye’s albums on vinyl go for $600 a whop? I mean, I love Kanye just as much as the next music head, but I’ll be damned if I ever drop that kind of cash on an album. Surprisingly, there are people who will spend that kind of dough, and then some.
Kanye West’s Vinyl
Kanye’s Life of Pablo may reign supreme in pricey price points ($20 digital downloads), but his vinyl trumps it. Autographed copies of The College Dropout and 808s & Heartbreak on vinyl sell for a whopping $600 each.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony – E.1999/Legends
Growing up on E. 1999 Eternal, a few of the tracks are my all-time favorites; “Tha Crossroads” and “1st of tha Month” will always be classics to me. That doesn’t mean I’ll be dropping $1 million on the group’s final album though.
One of a Kind
Yep, that’s how much the album will be auctioned for after it’s released. According to Krayzie Bone, the album (slated to drop this year) will be a “one-of-a-kind project.”
