From Grandmaster Flash To Run The Jewels: Hip Hop Celebrates Record Store Day 2018

In honor of Record Store Day 2018, several pillars of the Hip Hop community took to social media to celebrate the annual audiophiles’ holiday. Grandmaster Flash hit Twitter to post a vintage photo of himself rocking the 1s and 2s.

“How it all started …touchin the Vinyl with my Fingertips,” the Hip Hop legend wrote. “Record Store Day is very important — Salute to the DJs Worldwide!!”

Elsewhere in the social media stratosphere, Diplo showed his fans how to open a record, Run The Jewels posted a clip of a crate-digger discovering his Holy Grail of vinyl and Czarface encouraged people to get out to their local records stores.

Artists like Sage Francis, El-P, Quasimoto, Blueprint, DJ Nu-Mark, the Beat Junkies and Mega Ran also hit social media to celebrate RSD 2018.
