Back in the 80s, boomboxes reigned supreme. Audio giants like TDK and Pioneer earned props from the hip-hop community for making ghetto blasters powerful enough to disrupt entire city blocks. As technology pushed forward, music became more personal as products like the Walkman, then the Discman, and, eventually, the iPod allowed people to easily roll with their music in tow. However, we've recently seen an resurgence of Radio Raheem's staple gadget. Jay-Z was recently spotted on vacation lugging his own personal boombox, officially giving validity to the new trend. And with the summer almost here, expect the same notoriety with one of these strapped over your shoulder. Make some noise this Memorial Day Weekend by picking up one of these dope modern boomboxes.
