New Rap Tapes Only Available For Prison Inmates

In a move that should interest those of us who grew-up with a Sony Megabass Walkman, “New York’s Inmate Superstore” Send A Package are now stocking new rap and R&B tapes, as well as two models of portable tape players (I’d go for the one with “Bass Boost”). This means that Nas’ Life Is Good, Cam’Ron‘s Purple Haze and most of Jay-Z‘s discography can be ordered for $12.99 a pop. So far, Jadakiss’ The Last Kiss is the best selling tape over there. Before you get too excited about the prospect of playing Lil’ Wayne‘s The Carter III at your next hipster douchebag party, you should note that you can only ship orders to their list of approved prisons, so unless you have some pals in the bing who can forward a package back to you, this isn’t a lot of use. But since Universal Records are having these tapes made, will they be available through Amazon and the like for those of us who haven’t been caught yet? While we’re on the topic, what recent rap album would you be willing to pay $13 to own on tape?
