Sandapackage, a company which helps provide care packages for inmates, has signed a deal with Universal Records to re-release several classic hip hop albums on cassette tape.

The deal will help prison inmates gain access to new and old hip hop gems, and rapper Jadakiss is all for it.

"Big shout out to Universal for that [deal with], and definitely a big shout out to all the correctional facilities," Jada said. "That's one of my biggest markets. I make a lot of music for the inmates, so it's beautiful that they're able to get it on cassette and really absorb and listen to it.

"I'm sending packages [to inmates] all the time. Sometimes it's difficult 'cus they send third parties to get the money, and sometimes you get up in jail and some things can't get accepted, this and that - there's always a lot of discrepancies...Sendapackage makes everything much easier."

Jay-Z, Biggie, Young Jeezy and 50 Cent are among the artists whose albums will be released.
