JAY-Z’s ‘4:44′ Project Available on Cassette Tape
JAY-Z’s album 4:44 is still selling well both in streams and digital but now you can get his celebrated project in a new format: cassette tape.
According to Billboard, the limited edition 4:44 cassette is now available for pre-order for $9 via Virgin EMI Records official webstore. There’s no word if the cassette will feature a booklet that will include liner notes and photos. Either way, this will be a nice memento for the true hip-hop fan.
In addition to the tape, those who place orders before 1PM ET on Friday (Aug. 4), will also have the chance to win side-stage tickets to the UK's V Festival, which JAY-Z is the headliner. The festival takes place Aug. 19 and 20 in England. However, the lucky winner will have to paid for their own transportation and accommodation.
But don't fret U.S. fans, Hov will embark on his “4:44 Tour” this fall. The 31-city trek starts on Oct. 27 in Anaheim, Calif., and will wrap up in Los Angeles on Dec. 21.
JAY-Z is also set to headline Philadelphia’s Made In America Festival and New York City’s Meadows Music and Arts Festival, respectively, in September, and the Austin City Limits Festival in October.
There's no word on when 4:44 will be available on vinyl. However, you can cop the CD version on Amazon.com.
