Hear it now:
T.I. 'King'
After running into every album-delaying obstacle possible - the inevitable leak, sentencing from old charges, being saved-by-the-bell with probation only to violate the probation many more times - the final cut of *King* elevated T.I. and his Bankhead tales to a definition unseen before it. *King* remains a top candidate for Holy Text in the Bible of Zone 1: it’s a star-studded monstrosity of sonic exuberance, assembling the likes of Mannie Fresh, DJ Toomp, Khao, and Keith Mack to play the most formidable accomplices to whichever palette Tip aims to tackle. Tip’s not here to convince anyone of his greatness; merely to extend another invitation, no matter how daunting the circumstances.

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music

Discover new music.

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Special editions

Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Special editions
Swaps

Swap it out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
No contracts or strings. You can cancel at any time.
