Last Edit: This thread I decided not to update 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.
