Jeru The Damaja Instrumental LP Auction Ends at $1,226.00

Last week you could bid on 2 unique vinyl items on the famous auction site Ebay. Both “Sun Rises in The East” and “Step in the Arena” are instrumental lp’s pressed by DJ Premier himself to spin at concerts when the albums came out mid 90s. Both albums have DJ Premier produced instrumentals that are never released before. Those two facts plus the unique value of those records made the price go sky rocking in just hours, it’s every vinyl record collectors wet dream to have this hanging in your room. Gang Starr’s “Step In The Arena” was eventually sold for $511.00, while Jeru The Damaja’s “Sun Rises In The East” was sold for $1,226.00 (!). The buyer(s) remains anonymous, but there is a great chance the two lp’s are now heading for Asia. And the seller was not DJ Premier himself to be clear :D.
