If you have any of these in your collection, you’re sitting on solid gold!

Vinyl collecting is all about spending hours sifting through milk crates, hoping to find that perfect record. Rare vinyl that sells for thousands is usually found in obscure genres like funk, R&B, and Brazilian. But occasionally, a rap record ascends to “Holy Grail” status in terms of its rarity and sticker price. If you come across any of the vinyl on this list and don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for it, consider yourself lucky. Maybe you should spend this weekend sifting through your dad’s old collection—you might be sitting on gold!
