It appears that a number of Hip Hop classics will soon be made available on cassette tape format.

According to a recent press release, Universal Records has signed a deal with Sendapackage.com to release a number of classic Hip Hop LPs in cassette tape format. The deal will help provide prison inmates with access to new and old music.

Sendapackage, which is an online store that helps provide prison inmates in New York with care packages, also spoke to the L.O.X. veteran Jadakissabout the deal.

« Big shout out to Universal for that [deal with Sendapackage.com], and definitely a big shout out to all the correctional facilities, » Jada said. « That’s one of my biggest markets. I make a lot of music for the inmates, so it’s beautiful that they’re able to get it on cassette and really absorb and listen to it…I’m sending packages [to inmates] all the time. Sometimes it’s difficult ‘cus they send third parties to get the money, and sometimes you get up in jail and some things can’t get accepted, this and that – there’s always a lot of discrepancies…Sendapackage makes everything much easier. »

As of now, Universal plans to re-release albums from the likes of the Notorious B.I.G.Jay-Z50 Cent,Young Jeezy and others. The label will also make new albums from a variety of Hip Hop and R&B acts available.
