They were always open until midnight, and on Mondays they would do midnight releases. Blunt session at 11, hit the store and look through the vinyl and magazines…then cop something crazy at midnight and listen to it instantly.
We would really think that we were getting the first listen too…hahaaaa. Those were the days. This was before leaks and torrents and all that.
I kinda feel sorry for hip-hop fans who haven’t even peeled off a plastic wrapper and peeped the album artwork and booklet…read the artist shoutouts and production credits.
RIP Tower Records.

I heard that little Akon feature like a year ago and was tripping out…Akon was in the refugee camp. Pras was doing a local radio interview a couple years back and talked about how Akon could never stay out of trouble with stealing cars and shit to record music with them. Said he knew he was always gonna be a star and they wanted stop fucking around.
Amp…you remember the promo pieces that would be given out with first day purchases? What were some of the illest?
At Tower, I was in video. Don’t really remember any promo pieces.

crowd-sourcing is when a person looking for graphic design work essentially asks a bunch of designers to make a logo. he picks his favorite and only pays for that version, essentially getting free design work. He is also driving down the price by scraping the bottom of the design barrel.
this definition is full of my opinion, but you can look up more insight online. LOL
Luckily The Wherehouse used to have a million stores and they let you return music EVEN if you opened it…and you could return multiple times. Of course this meant they went out of business, but it saved my ass numerous times in high school.
Like, returning a Silkk Da Shocker CD and trading it in for Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt type of saving my ass
buying records used to be a hobby, internet killed that
I prolly spent at least 2 stacks of my paper route money on used CD’s in HS. Here in Columbus there used to be a ton of used record and DJ spots on OSU campus and I spent mad hours in them spots. Remember skippin to cop Things Fall Apart and Still Standing
Dis nigga ElZhi is dancin on some of these tracks tho not original and he is def a NAs clone
He still sound dope
^ 2011 Elzhi >>>>>>> 2011 Nas. Nas can’t even do what Elzhi can do, so how the f**k is Elzhi a clone? Nas never was as advanced with Elzhi with rhyme schemes. Elzhi is more like Nas on steroids. Only thing Nas has on him is catalog and I think Nas’ voice is slightly better.
