Last Edit: This thread I decided not to update anymore.....so 36chambers moved it to the classics for your viewing.


This is the progressing list of hip hop albums that are out of print.


If you have any discrepencies of what is not out of print, post and I will decide if it should be removed. But remember, that just seeing an album in the shop doesnt necessarily mean its not OOP.

Continue to post albums you know that are out of print, and I will try to update the list.

I will also try to fill in missing years, as they are important for identifying an album...especially from distinguishing apart the reissues.

Ive seen it at many places...and have it. But I know its OOP....its just sucks and no one buys it....so they are stuck with them. I never seen Daily Operation or Step into the Arena in a while. In fact, I have seen Daily Operation go for a lot on ebay.....so who knows.

If I hear about enough Gangstarr...I will take those 2 off the list.

yeah its OOP. Too bad I wouldn't mind having that one but I'm not dropping $50+ on Ebay for any album. Industry Shakedown is out of print too for whoever asked.

I got a couple OOP in my collection that I usually won't even let leave the house:

Freddie Foxx- Industry Shakedown
Pharaohe Monch- Internal Affairs
O.C.- Word...Life
original Ghost- Ironman with Soul Controller
original Snoop- Doggystyle with Gz Up Hoez Down (lol I conned my ex-gf out of this one)

If that shit about Rawkus is true than Black On Both Sides too. I also have Xzibit's first two but I don't think they're out of print though they might be soon since Loud went under. Y'all better brush up on your Mobb, Pun and especially WU if the Loud catalogue ever goes under.

I just bought Black on Both Sides from Coconuts near my house back when Red Light District came out (bought that too, heh heh). And Main Source is not OUT of print, I asked at the same store and they said that they still have copies in their warehouse...I've seen Word...Life in stores before...Capital Punishment is NEVER gonna be out of print, and Pun and Mobb albums are safe...Columbia was Loud's parent company, they're still putting those albums in stores...

06-17-2005, 11:26 AM
just because a label folds doesn't mean a record is out of print.

first of all, there are thousands and thousands of (if not even more) in distributor warehouses. that's why you can buy a CD with "Loud Records" on it 3 years after Loud folds. also, Loud was never independent of RCA, so Loud Releases will continue to be relased by Columbia or RCA. Same with Rawkus, its catalogue is under MCA or UNiversal's (forget which) control now.

Yeah, thats what I was trying to look up, what Rawkus' mother company was.

As for Word...Life seen in stores, that is likely the reissue...not the original.

And it is true that there are records that are OOP but the warehouses are still stocked....so they are still seen in stores. I remember those Kool G records were selling for over $40 in the stores.

No way that EP is in print.

I dont kown that, so I dont even know about its authenticity. Since a RZA EP would concern people here, I will add it anyway.

There are many ways, but most of them arent always positive. It is possible some albums posted may be just rare but not out of print. But we should be pretty accurate.

Sometimes you just know and remember albums and post it. Its like how you know Words From the Genius is out of print.

Some are based on the labels and the artist and the label's status.

Or perhaps some people frequent music stores are are listing the albums they havent come by in a while.

Another way is seeing how some albums are being bidded on ebay and taking the sellers word that its OOP, or even how much some are....this takes some serching skills and logic.

Other people just know. It helps me when I go into a used record store and find some of these. Just like Nine - Nine Lives, just flipping through at the used record store and finding these cat eyes staring back at me with a $5.00 sticker on it.

But dont get me wrong....im just learning....Im no album expert myself...these people replying likely know more than me.

Uh...Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is the purple tape.

Yes, the tape really was purple when it came out so was the original CD case which you can't find anymore.

Soul Controller got cut from all the...Ironmen...around 2000 or so. Sample clearances strike again too bad that was one of the best joints on there.

Oh well I have my complete Ironman and my purple Cuban Linx case that's what yall get for sleeping. :yes:
