Notorious B.I.G., Lil Wayne and J Dilla Albums Among 2016 Record Store Day Releases
Record Store Day is April 16, 2016, and yesterday (March 9) the organization behind the one-day holiday for vinyl appreciation has announced the complete list of releases people can buy starting that Saturday.
Limited edition releases from The Notorious B.I.G., Outkast, Lil Wayne, J Dilla, Kevin Gates, Logic, and Run The Jewels are all on the docket. One of the most interesting listings by far is what Run The Jewels has planned. They're releasing a limited edition virtual reality viewer to watch their "Crown" video in virtual reality.
OutKast's classic "Elevators" single is also getting released on "glow in the dark alien" vinyl to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ATLiens. Plus, Dilla's long lost vocal album The Diary will finally see the light of day.
Below is a complete list of all the rap releases hip-hop fans can expect on Record Store Day.
