Universal Records has signed a deal with Sendapackage to re-release several classic hip hop albums on cassette tape. The deal is intended to help prison inmates gain access to new and old music. Sendapackage helps provide inmates with care packages.
Jadakiss voiced his support of the initiative. “Big shout out to Universal for that [deal with Sendapackage.com], and definitely a big shout out to all the correctional facilities,” Jada said. “That’s one of my biggest markets. I make a lot of music for the inmates, so it’s beautiful that they’re able to get it on cassette and really absorb and listen to itâ¦I’m sending packages [to inmates] all the time. Sometimes it’s difficult ‘cus they send third parties to get the money, and sometimes you get up in jail and some things can’t get accepted, this and that – there’s always a lot of discrepanciesâ¦Sendapackage makes everything much easier.”
Jay-Z, the Notorious B.I.G., Young Jeezy and 50 Cent are among the artists who’s albums are slated to be released.
