      I would love to win a copy of Grap on blue vinyl. I missed out on it originally but gladly purchased the EP on vinyl this past weekend.

      Been a fan since INI and his features with his fam Pete Rock.

      Thanks for doing the contest.

      just cause a dude from Iowa should have something like this.

      I need this because my homies left me behind on this damn planet. I met these kids and they are some real Bs. I tried to tell those stupid white suburban kids that I needed to phone home and shit, and even lit up my finger at them, but they couldn't understand me. I totally g'd out their bicycles though, that was tight when we was flying away from these cops trying to capture "in the name of science" and shit, we left them in the dust. Anyway my finger that lights up doubles as a stylus and I like to kick it to some jams once in awhile. Since I'm stuck on this planet, I'd love to chill with some Grap Luva, some of this planet's finest music.

      Good Afternoon, over the yrs. i've thrown out plenty of vinyl & tapes just to boast abt having the most mp3s. I didn't understand the validity of having some of the most classic releases of my generation on vinyl & tape. As of last yr w/ the influx of vinyl and tapes making a resurgence through various record labels, I've reintroduced myself to the mediums of listening to these formats. i recently bought a new walkman, like i was in HS again. i started to buy vinyl again, and appreciating it. Some things I've purchases for the nostalgia and kept them sealed. Other purchases, i have opened and cherished the liner notes and the artwork, something the mp3s made me forget. Hopefully, i can obtain the Grap Luva EP to add to my collection of vinyl.

      Because I want to know if he'll ever bust lines as dope as these: "I'mma set an exam-PLE / 'cause I pull, got the honey dips, so what's up, my tank is FULL / of sperm, I am ready to bust a nut, what's up, Pete Rock, come get on the cut / rock to the beat, get wrecked on the regular, listen to me because I cause mass hysteria..."

      The first reason why I need this record is because I love this music and the people that keep good hip-hop-music alive...just like Grap Luva. The other reason is, that I want this copy to play while my friends are visiting me for a beer, a talk, videogames or something else...just that they came in touch with the real good hip hop step by step. It's difficult to find music like this when you are not really into this stuff and invest time to find that special kind of record that' ll make you happy...so I would use this copy to give my friends an example how good hip-hop-music was and could be...just when you keep looking and eyes and ears open.

    • Mozes

      The December holidays already costs me a lot of money. It would be dope to get something for free in this expensive month.

      I just want to say thank you to all those who have and continue to support this project! Big up to EGO TRIP (one of my favorite mags that NEEDS to COME BACK!!) and egotripland.com for the support and for appreciating this project! Thanks to all the great comments and commenters on here! Special shout to Chairman Mao for supporting throughout the years! One Luv and Thanks to ALL!!!

    • locolocke

      i'd love to win this grail, cause i'm addicted to vinyl and spend more money on records than on food or other stuff. missed this beauty... btw grap is one of the most underrated producers in the game. ONE

    • kevin D

      I need this because it was all a dream. I used to read Word Up magazine.Salt'n'Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
      Hangin' pictures on my wall Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl.I let my tape rock 'til my tape popped.

      I was working when i found out later about the blue special edition. I was hoping to snag a copy. I got a copy of the black one, since that was left. So, i am not going to cry if i don't win it. I will be very grateful to have it in my collection. I'm not the type to gloat about what i have in my collection or buy stuff just because it is limited and then turn around and sell it online for more to pocket a lil extra in the funds category. I just want it in my collection to smile and enjoy a another piece of great hiphop. So shout out to those who picked up the album on blue or black. Regardless if i should win or not. I am still going to be enjoying it on my speakers.

    • egotrip

      Peace, Grap! Keep doin yr thing & thanks for the quality music as always, sir.

    • Twelve

      Grap is one of the most talented and consistent emcees and producers out there and has been for years. He's just so laid-back and humble that he's been content to chill in his brothers shadow all this time. I wish him and Pete would record an EP or something together with both of 'em rhyming and producing. Oh, and PLEASE put out more of them beats!

    • emppu

      Because I fucking need one and I was so broke after Paul Nice signature 7's that I couldnt afford for this in time. Give it to me or I'll set up an rival website and steal all your readers, my work is never done.

    • Berna

      Hello from Spain. I would like to have one of this because I LOVE HIP HOP.

      Thanks for the oportunitty and PAZ

    • rey

      When I was 12 I used to tell my Filipino mother (jokingly) to stop "fakin jax" and she would look at me crazy. I would also randomly ask her "how many mc's must get dissed". I think these are good enough reasons for me to win the vinyl.

    • Jackson

      I just moved and I need something to impress my friends when they come to see the new flat, and K-Def's Neva Done on blue wax hanging in a frame would Def be such a thing!

    • Rob

      I should be given the blue vinyl coz I wrote this rap and with out the record that would just be another lie I have told:

      Yo my rob I ain't no slob
      Gots me a job
      Working for snoop
      but he wants me poopascoop his dawg
      Nigga please he got fleas and you ain't give me my cheese
      So I missed this release.

      If you want the second verse you gona have to give me that record
