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!!”

Shouts to TheYetee for pressing these bad boys. Get yours Saturday on TheYetee.com or at a special Phoenix AZ pop-up tomorrow morning (stay tuned for location). Can ya dig that?
