Universal Records has apparently joined forces with website Send A Package, which serves as a means of sending care packages to New York prison inmates. The goal is to rerelease a slew of albums from the likes of the Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Nas, and 2Pac, among others, on cassette. You see, CDs could be used as a dangerous weapon, but tapes? Nah.
Another artist set to see his music more easily shared with inmates is Jadakiss, who spoke on Universal’s new deal with Send A Package. He praises the collaboration in the below interview, as he says his music truly speaks to those spending time behind bars and that he sends packages like this himself. [via]
