Albums like The Marshall Mathers LP, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Good Kid Maad City, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, Country Grammar, The Score and Tha Carter III, The State vs. Radric Davis and more are just some of the titles you can scoop up for your personal iTunes library for just $5.99, proving that somebody at Apple wants to make sure we hear the classics for the low low. Greatest hits compilation albums from the likes of Gucci Mane, Ice Cube and The Notorious B.I.G. are also on sale for $5.99.
Many of the iconic albums listed in the limited time $5.99 category have naturally popped up again on iTunes’ Top Albums chart. Though Drake’s multi-platinum Views securely holds the top spot on the chart, discounted LPs like Childish Gambino’s Because of the Internet, ‘Ye’s Graduation and K. Dot’s untitled unmastered have cracked the Top 20. Even Gucci Mane, who’s now two weeks fresh out of penitentiary and dropping verses on new tracks, has an album that’s currently No. 15 on Apple’s Rap Album charts.
Apple Music has made an obvious push for dominance in the hip-hop world lately when it comes to streaming services. In the past year, Dr. Dre, Drake and Chance The Rapper have all chose to premiere their projects on Apple Music before letting any other service get their hands on it. Rap fans who ride with Apple Music can enjoy these exclusive streams as well as premieres on rapper-run radio shows like OVO Sound Radio, The Pharmacy and OTHERtone.
