Out-of-print hip-hop

We've always thought the best way to learn about music is to hear it. That's why we try to accompany each of our reviews and features with audio and video; why we diligently scour the universe looking for the latest gems to populate our media section and forums; why we pepper our news section with streaming and downloadable tracks from your favorite (and your future favorite) rock, hip-hop and electronic artists.

And now we offer this: the Prefix Podcast. On the first Tuesday of every month, we'll shine some light on a little piece of the music universe. From Delta blues to great songs made by terrible artists, each month will highlight a different genre, artist, or theme. It's a journey through the music we love that doesn't fit into our day-to-day functions. We hope you learn a little but, more important, we want you to hear some music you like enough to search out and purchase, music that isn't being over-hyped on the blogs and in trend-seeking magazines (like this one). 

 

This inaugural edition will focus on out-of-print hip-hop. The genre that currently rules the world has seen more than its fair share of classic records slide out of print, so it's worthwhile to highlight some of the best, the ones that deserve to be reissued today.
