My favorite digging spot in Los Angeles is the Record Jungle. This place has the illest selection of soul, funk, rap, jazz, & breaks in the city, hands down! The prices are mad decent and they have a HUGE $2.00 45 section. Andy,the owner is a stand up guy and knows his music. Tell 'em what you want,they'll hook you up.
Copped this O.G. Honey Drippers in NM condition for $50.
Copped "Shorty The Pimp" in mint condition for $20.
