, Rap Music Guide showcases the most album information in one place. We are the ultimate destination for music collectors and the #1 authority for confirming the authenticity of rap & hip-hop albums!

CDs

The compact disc (CD) still remains the standard for music releases, but for underground record companies some albums may only have 100 - 1000 copies in existence.

At Rap Music Guide we focus on these rare albums, displaying their album art, barcodes, catalog numbers and matrix ring codes to help you identify between original releases, re-release's & bootlegs.

Cassette Tapes

Cassette tapes made it possible for rap music to sweep the nation. Cheap and convenient, pioneers such as Too Short sold his first albums out the trunk of his car, coining the term "Trunk Tape".

Tapes are also the only form of media some album were released on. These releases are considered to be "Tape Only" and are extremely valuable to rap collectors around the world.

Long-Playing (LP) vinyl records are the very first form of recorded rap music in the United States.

During the early era of hip-hop, the only way to have your music heard was to release your album on wax to have it played by DJs.

Rap Music Guide strives to deliver the most rare and hard to find records ever released.
