Starting January 27 on the NTWRK live shopping app, a total of 57 iconic Interscope albums, each featuring one of the original artwork, will be up for grabs in prize pools of 100 each. However, deep pockets are necessary: ​​delivered in a personalized Gucci box, the albums are priced at $2,500 each.

The albums, each accompanied by a numbered, archival-quality giclee-printed cover, are set to be released in batches each day from Jan. 27 through Jan. 31. Interscope and NTWRK have pledged to donate 100% of net profits from the project to the Iovine and Young Foundation, which is building a school in South Los Angeles.

Artists whose works are featured in the vinyl series include Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, Eminen, U2, Nine Inch Nails, 2Pac, Mary J. Blige and Lana Del Rey.

“Although this groundbreaking art exhibit is only on view at LACMA for a limited time, we thought the launch of a series of limited-edition vinyls to honor both our recording artists and the extraordinary visual artists who contributed to this effort, would be a great way to keep this celebration going for years to come, and at the same time it was a cool way to invite music fans to Interscope’s 30th celebration,” said Steve Berman, vice president of Interscope Geffen A&M.

Berman added, “NTWRK, which specializes in highly selected cultural artifacts of art and music, is a perfect retail partner as we celebrate the legacy of all the artists who have made Interscope Records a hit over the past 30 years. The fact that the sales of these albums will help fund Jimmy and Dre’s high school makes this an even more special undertaking.

The Interscope 30th Anniversary Museum Exhibit runs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) from January 30 through February 13, 2022.

“We are honored to work with Interscope to celebrate the iconic record label’s 30th anniversary alongside some of the most culturally significant musicians and artists on this incredible project that is raising money for a great cause helping to support the Jimmy and Dre’s high school,” said CEO of NTWRK Aaron Levant.
