Record Store Day “Black Friday” List Unveiled

Record Store Day Black Friday

Cincinnati is rich with record stores. That’s not to say we have one on every corner, but the indie record shops we do have are fantastic. Whether your frequent longstanding shops like Everybody’s or Shake It, or newcomers to the market like Plaid Room and Black Plastic, you can build a killer collection of new and used vinyl here, especially on Record Store Day.

Typically, I don’t do the Black Friday thing; waiting in lines to score disproportional deals on things I don’t really need. That all changed when the folks at Record Store Day decided to have another push for indie record stores the day after Thanksgiving.

While Black Friday is somewhat toned down in comparison to the RSD main event in April, I have found some of my favorite collectible and rare vinyl in the bins on those cold, crisp Friday mornings. RSD Black Friday looks to be shaping up the same for 2017, as many exclusive and and first releases have finally been unveiled on this year’s complete list.

With a wide variety of releases every year, RSD has never neglected hip hop. Check out the rap releases hitting select bins across the country this year:
