Rappers, Records & Ca$h Mobs

If those 4 words in the title sound like a match made in hip hop heaven, then please allow us to break it down(backwards) for you.

Detroit Ca$h Mob (yes, you have to spell it with the cash money dolla bill sign every time!) is not a throwback record label in the vein of Suge Knight. Nope, it’s a grassroots initiative originated by Photographer David Lewinski to spur local support of cool small businesses in the city on a bi-weekly basis. And that’s where the records come in. The 5th annual Record Store Day is this Saturday and Detroit has two great neighborhood stores to feed your vinyl cravings, so we conspired with David to organize the latest Ca$h Mob event around this increasingly important musical holiday. The locales: Hello Records on Trumbull in Corktown and Record Graveyard on Caniff in Hamtramck. Both shops will be having deals that day, 1/2 off all used albums at Hello and a $2 record deal at Graveyard.

What about the rappers, you say? We’re guessing you’ll get the hint from the teaser below, but lots more on that tomorrow. Until then, please RSVP at the link below and let’s spin some records, Detroit!
