That is a little odd that it’s not available through iTunes any longer. I purchased it around a month back and it’s rarely left my CD deck in my whip within that time. Such a phenomenal album, I honestly wouldn’t mind at all if they re-released it through Strange or put out some kind of deluxe edition with bonus material.
I purchased it off Itunes probally a week or so before Ces actually got signed. I hope that they’re going to re-release it with either bonus material, or just to re-release it. There is a hard copy of The Playground, you just have to contact Ubi or Godemis in order to get it. If you contact either one on Facebook, they used to sell it for about 20 bucks I think, and it’s a signed copy. The only Ces album that isn’t in a hard copy is Capture Enemy Soldiers.
I have the hard copy of Capture Enemy Soldiers, Iron Giant, and the Playground. But what you need to find is that FUTA shit! It’s Godemis and some other KC rappers that got together and did a bunch of industry beat jacks. Their version of that Snoop Dogg I wanna rock right now is ill as fuck!
