Cool. Are The autographs authentic? Who else have signed there?
It's all Cool C (as far as I know it is authentic) It has no "COA" but I don't believe many underground rap cd's do have "COAs"so... I got it in a trade from a trusted dealer/collector. The front cover and inserts were signed at a different time than the CD itself.

I just like the CD because Cool C has been locked up forever and I feel it's pretty rare given that fact.

At one time I was going to have it framed and matted but the problem is that both the cover and the "inside" artwork are also signed so it would have been difficult to do that, not to mention the price and I don't think there are many collectors that would want a Cool C promo matted and framed on top of that - at least not what I'm asking/expecting for the CD which is around $100.

I'm looking to sell it...

IMO, the cover and inside artwork were autographed before he went to prison (it is a promo)...

I think the disk (or was told) was autographed when he was in the joint.

It's been signed both "Cool C" and "Chris Roney (on the cd)...

I can post more pics if there is any interest to buy or trade for it. I don't mind trading at all.

It's very cool to have a CD signed by cool c. Tragic story about two dope rappers that made the wrong decisions.

I have the album already and personally a signature doesn't mean anything to me unless I know it has been signed to me in person or that I'm 100% sure that the signature is authentic. I have no doubt that your signatures are authentic, but it doesn't make me want to dig that deep into my pockets to buy it. Sorry

I understand, and felt the same way when I got it in a large trade so I share your concerns... I just trusted the individual I was trading with (mom & pop store owner from Philly)..

I'm not much of a collector anymore and the CD was in a box (I completely forgot I had) and was going through cds and found this and was like "Oh yeah I forgot I had this"... Funny how you go though old boxes of cds and are like "oh yeah or I didn't know I had a few more of these" lol.

Yeah, I think it's a cool cd too and would rather keep it unless someone blew me away with an offer.

I thought this guy received the death penalty
He got life (I think) which makes this cd so dope...

I know the actual CD was signed when he was locked up... The guy I got it from claimed "he knew people" and that was the extent I got as far as why the CD was signed. Dude's legit tho so I trust his "I know people" explanation..

I don't get it now...How does the fact that he was sentenced to life in prison makes this CD dope?

Lol - none.

I just trust the dude I got it from - hes honest, so I have no reason to believe hes ripping me off because he hasn't in the past - that cd was just a "throw in" if it matters - I've also had it for at least 5 years.

I'm pretty sure its legit.....

That's a price only a really die hard fan would pay since the regular album can be purchased on amazon for $10-20. Pretty good price per cm of signature, haha.

I'd keep it if I were you... :-D

I'd rather keep it because it's awesome to have.


That's why I ask so much.. :classic:

I have plenty of other shit I want to sell tho.

I have like 1,000 cds (literally)... Most from Chicago/Milwaukee and a little chunk of cd's from the Bay......
