    It's that time of the month. I'll be back in a bit to answer any Q's. I've got about an hour today to answer questions before I go back to my holiday break, then otherwise I'll catch up when I'm back next Wednesday.

    Hi Storf! Can you tell us about the storage and waiting side of VMP? I feel like ROTMs connected with future new releases can get easily delayed at the request of the label.
    Also, were you thinking about a FlyLo exclusive / ROTM for a while? I love that we get a new album cover with Cosmogramma!

    First off, just wanted to say thanks for the Flying Lotus ROTM and Bundle. I'd heard of Flying Lotus prior to this, but hadn't dug in much, and with an initial listen to Cosmogramma, I had a "oh shit!" moment where everything just clicks with new music and it broadens your horizons. So anyway, long story short, thanks for bringing us cool, interesting music to check out, I'm loving this.

    I'm sure you get this Q a lot, but wanted to check in to see if there were any updates on more vinyl from Fiona Apple. The version of Tidal is incredible and I think I would legit trade in 3 ROTMs just to get my hands on something like When the Pawn... Please tell me ya'll are still working on this :)

    Is Blossom a Gray remaster? I looked but didn't see that info on the details link.

    I'd imagine an album with that much fervor and demand around it would be a ROTM, at least of R&HH, if anything, although sample clearances would probably make it impossible.

    Follow-up: Any chance y'all contacted FlyLo's people, said "hey is there any chance we can do a Duality ROTM?" and they were like "Nah, sorry, but you can do all this other stuff" and that's how this ROTM (and the accompanying exclusives) came to be? :p

    Any chance we can get an approximate month when we will find out more about the new blue note endeavor?

    It seems like the ROTMs get "sold out" and then magically reappear later (i.e. Archie Shepp, Gorillaz, Davis/Coltrane, etc.). Any chance that this would ever happen for non-ROTM VMP exclusives? such as Orquesta Akokan or Charlie Rouse?

    From the 400 ROM article
    "This project started this summer, when we got sort of tossed the keys to the Cash Money vaults. We immediately decided we needed to do a Lil Wayne album, but me and Michael also went through the catalog and gave them a list of albums we wanted to do. We settled on Tha Carter III, Tha Carter II, The Mind of Mannie Fresh, Guerrilla Warfare, 400 Degreezand another one I won’t name because if it does happen I don’t want to spoil it here. We got the go ahead on five of the six for sure, and it was then that we realized that 400 Degreez had never been officially released,"

    these two for sure were repressed, it would be very upsetting to many if an exclusive that was advertised as limited to __ was repressed

    Good to hear. This is basically why we picked this; we felt like we could do special things with it.

    This might have been answered elsewhere, but is Cosmogramma 33⅓ or 45 RPM?

    The secret to the vinyl industry is that there isn't much stuff getting delayed very often (with the exception of a certain cover for a certain band's album getting screwed up in printing). We have hard cutoff dates to hit deadlines for each month--and we have serialized obis on every ROTM now--so there isn't really any storage or waiting tbh. We did have a slight scare when we thought we'd have to push February's ROTM to March and flip March to Feb, but that happened like 3 weeks ago. These changes are happening on a way different schedule than when we announce.

    FlyLo has been on a master list of artists to consider since I've worked here, I think. He's in the VMP book. I think once we approached him this summer, things happened pretty quickly. Glad you like the cover, he picked it himself.

    What is the likelihood this month's tracks sell out before available to buy on their own
