From the south side, with love

Chicago // IL



South Rhodes Records is your home for all Hip-Hop, Jazz, and R&B music on vinyl. Well, not quite all. We recognize that there is more music being produced now than ever. And we can't possibly stock everything, nor do we seek to. With a focus on quality over quantity, we offer the classics everyone knows and loves along with other vinyl essentials for everyone's collection. In addition to new and reissued vinyl we also specialize in sourcing hard-to-find original pressings.

Established in 2018, we are based on Chicago's south side and look forward to provding you with the best vinyl your turntable's ever played.

Who's on the Decks?


Grant Crusor is south side native and the founder of South Rhodes Records. As a small child, he thought the boxes of black disks his parents had were thin frisbees. And that they need to be thrown at walls and destroyed. His dad lost his mind. Grant learned the hard way that only frisbees are frisbees. 

Now, with a much greater appreciation for wax of yesteryear and today, Grant collects vinyl from everywhere possible.
