    I’m moving, getting rid of junk. Got two binders of CD’s and know I haven’t played any of them in 7-8 years. I don’t even own a CD/DVD player and won’t have a car - so no CD player there. I’m stream life, or if it’s not there, I’ll find it elsewhere. My CD collection used to be a point of pride, it was stolen in 08, I replaced some of it and of course bought new releases (that what comprises these two binders). But between downloading and buying on iTunes from about 09-14 and being a full streaming convert since 13/14, I listen to digital files. I’m somewhat of a minimalist, I throw out shyt if I don’t use it, I’m not one to hang onto things for sentimental reasons. It’s time to let this shyt go :to:


    I can’t bring myself to trash them, but I might throw them in my old bedroom at my parent’s house where I have other junk stored. Crazy that a decade ago, leaving them in a closet wouldn’t ever be a thought.

    Just keep it. Unless you are moving to a shoebox you should have more than enough room for it. But if you do not want them give them away to someone who would.

    Those CD’s are still for good use, you can still import songs from Disk to device. It’s getting hard to find the rare stuff too nowadays.

    I had 2 large binders of CDs.....once I went fully digital, I gave them to my barbershop. No regrets. I needed the room, and I knew they would get a lot of play in the shop.

    I’m moving to DC and bushing the car... :blessed:

    but aside from some mix cd’s in there, which I think I already uploaded to iTunes (some other bullshyt I need to handle, getting my digital library into the cloud) the other stuff is all on Spotify or I can buy on iTunes if I ever get that hard pressed to hear it. There’s just so much music, I don’t spend a ton of time on old stuff. I may have a day where I wanna hear a bunch of OutKast or TLC or whatever and can get that fix on Spotify, or hit YouTube for rare remixes, etc. I don’t see the need for CD’s...:rip:

    Post a quick picture of the collection, I already know it's a few bay area posters who would swoop some quick (myself included)

    Edit: if it's just the discs themselves... Then hell yeah chuck them in the trash.

    What I was gonna say. You can keep cds under a sofa or bed. I still have all my mixtapes and even some of the cds I burned as a youngsta. Some of those prizefighter remixes off limewire were heat. At the time.

    And breh. Hang onto them. Being able to listen to those in 50 years will be a blessing. Some may even be worth money like vinyl is now. Putting them in, sparking a blunt and sipping like you did when you retired? Priceless my nikka. If you don't have space I can send you my address In Queens and send them back to you when you realise your mistake down the road.

    I would hold on to them, but if you insist on letting them go, I would get a cheap external USB CD/DVD drive. Rip all the joints you think are essential in a lossless format like WAV before you sell anything. Not everything has or will hit streaming, the De La Soul catalog is a prime example.
