The box set 10X45 will be [cont.]
Where press photos went to die. What you see above here is a rare image of the legendary HipHopSite.Com bathroom, which was connected to the mailroom at the old retail homebase at 4700 S. Maryland Pkwy in Las Vegas. Some highlights: 1) Completely defaced Benzino press picture, which included rosey red cheeks, a swastika on [cont.]

With Bun B’s Trill O.G. dropping this week, we thought we’d take a look back at this promo item from 2007′s Underground Kingz LP. Sure, you might have candy paint, cream on the inside, and wood grain wheels, but that doesn’t mean shit without the official UGK car freshener. We are sure that Pimp C [cont.]

T-shirts, hats, jerseys, shoes, headbands, and even shorts (that’s all you, Warren Peace) are available now via Merch Direct.
I remember when “Hustlin’” came out in 2006. It was a big baller / drug dealer anthem that would inspire these types to stand on tables at the club and frivolously toss money around. What we didn’t know at that time is who Rick Ross was, or how big of an artist he would eventually [cont.]
From StonesThrow.Com: The vocal & instrumental of “I Need You” are both on one side of this single. The flip side contains an etching by Miami illustrator Freegums, who we hooked up with a couple months back for the Mayer Hawthorne x Huf T-shirt & song collaboration. The record is packaged in plastic with a [cont.]

Outkast Idlewild Flask (2005) With Big Boi’s album hitting this week, we decided to take a look back at this 2005 promo item from the Outkast film / soundtrack Idlewild, which also introduced the world to Janelle Monae. The 6oz stainless steel Idlewild flask came in a classy gift-box, and was given out to cast [cont.]
R.A. The Rugged Man is easily one the most slept on rappers of all time. He’s worked with everyone from the Notorious B.I.G. to J-Live, but watched his official debut album be shelved after bouncing around from Jive to Priority to Capitol in the early 90′s. Many of these classic, never officially released tracks now [cont.]
First of two special edition vinyl reissues (the other can be seen below), in an experiment that is likely to generate a whole bunch more similar types of products.

How fresh is this? We’re guessing these are from Traffic Entertainment Group, but can’t be for sure. All we know is that we want it – Marley Marl’s classic debut LP, In Control Vol. One, which includes “The Symphony”, pressed on electric blue Kool Aid double vinyl, with two bonus slipmats included. We are all [cont.]
