Store FAQ
Q: Can I just buy a digital copy and not the tape?
A: Yes, on Bandcamp for $14, or send $10 via PayPal or Venmo and include your email in the notes.

Q: Do you accept any other forms of payment?
A:
Yes, Zelle or mail a personal check or cash. Email longislandrapblog@gmail.com for details if you'd prefer one of those. Credit cards are also accepted but only for Bandcamp purchases.

Q: Can you ship internationally?
A:
Yes, but please pay in USD if possible. Shipping rates vary. Email for details.

Q: I'm not crazy about this tape. Can I just wait until the next one?
A: 
Sure, but there won't be a next one until we make enough from this one to help pay for production costs. I don't have Patreon, so if you'd like to support the only site dedicated exclusively to Long Island hip-hop, please think of this $14 purchase as a donation that will help fund ongoing operations and future releases, and do whatever you want with the tape.

Q: I don't have a tape player. Where are the "Rap Records?"
A: 
For now, I mean records as in recordings. Cassettes are the least expensive physical media for this fledgling label to produce. Also, every tape includes a download code so you can listen on the digital device of your choice. And it's just cool to have and hold.

Q: I'd like to stock these tapes in my store. How can I do so?
A: Long Island Rap Records' releases are available via wholesale purchase and/or consignment agreement. Email longislandrapblog@gmail.com to discuss terms.

Q: Will your releases be on digital streaming platforms?
A:
The singles will be on Soundcloud, the albums on Bandcamp. Otherwise, no. As stated here, the primary purpose of the label is to produce and distribute physical media.

Q: Any discounts available?
A: Buy two and I'll waive the shipping for the second tape (so $24 for two tapes).

Q: Do you have any used vinyl records for sale?
A: As a matter of fact, yes, check out my Discogs. If I decide to put any used Long Island rap records up for sale, they'll be added on this page as well.

Q: Now that Long Island Rap Blog is Long Island Rap Records, is the submission process still the same?
A:
Yes and thank you for your interest! The process for submitting songs or albums to be posted on the site is the same as it's always been. At some point, I may also begin accepting demo submissions for label releases, at which time I'll provide additional information on that process, but for now I have the first four or five releases in mind already.
