Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Available for the first time on 2LP, 45RPM, and on vinyl for the first time in 30 years, we're proud to present this limited edition of Salt-N-Pepa's frank and masterful third LP, Blacks' Magic. Most discussions of the album begin and end with "Let's Talk About Sex," arguably one of the most important rap songs with regards to sexual politics, but this record is deeper than that, boasting lots of mic trading and fun, light songs that were Salt-N-Pepa's well, bread and butter. A good companion to our edition of Very Necessary, if we do say so ourselves.
