Hip-Hops most coveted cassette gets the boxset treatment courtesy of Get On Down Records.
Hip hop heads remember the impact and importance of this colored cassette. Back when tapes were more than a title, none was as game-changing as Raekwon's Only Built For Cuban Linx. To own it in its original format is a badge of honor that old-time backpackers wear with pride, but these select few now have some classy company on the way.
This week Boston based Get On Down Records will release 1,000 newly pressed copies of the aforementioned classic. In addition the twin-wheeled cartridge will be encased in a hand-made display case. It will also come with extensive liner notes and an array of other goodies. Whether you're a Wu-Tang fan, completist or lover of the genre this is a certified must buy. That said there are only 1,000 boxsets available so be sure to order yours before they're sold out.
