Here’s my first video of me going through my vinyl collection. After my “Top 10 Non-Hip Hop Releases of 2012″ a lot of you started asking for this, so I’m finally doing it. Again, sorry about the hissing sound. My laptop isn’t so happy these days. I will, hopefully, do these once a week until I’ve gotten all the way through Z. But, for the rest of them, I’ll try not to have so much rambling.
Nardwuar probably works harder than most up-and-coming rappers; he certainly networks more. If you’re not familiar, he has an eccentric and unconventional interview style where he digs up obscure tidbits from an artist’s past and their taste in music. Really interesting stuff. Here he is kicking it with Preemo about James Brown, Gang Starr, and his extensive vinyl knowledge. And if you like what you see, check out his interviews with Danny Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Curren$y, Action Bronson, and Young Jeezy.
For you vinyl collectors out there like myself (mainly old school records), check out this 5-inch vinyl of Oh No’s Ohnomite LP dropping June 11th. There are two versions. The first will have Oh NO and Doom on one side and the second will have the images superimposed. The decision is yours. Download: Oh No & Doom-3 Dollars

One of my FAVORITE tracks off Danny Brown’s crazy dope album XXX released last year. Here is a remix from the vinyl release of XXX (which I am copping). Check our review of XXX right here. Homie hooked this remix up! Love the aggression in the sound of this track!
