Who knew Elton John was such a fan of hip-hop he would go out of his way to try and find Vinyl Records of Tech N9ne?!

CBC reports that on Thursday night, 69-year-old British legend Elton John wandered into downtown Vancouver vinyl store Beat Street Records with his two bodyguards:

“I came in from the back and there was Elton John standing there with his two bodyguards, digging through records,” said store manager manager Lindsay Tomchyshen. “He asked my boss if we had any Tech N9ne, like, the gangster rapper and I was not expecting that.”

Unfortunately the store was sold out of Tech N9ne so Mr. John had to settle for a few albums by the ’80s British band Scritti Politti.

If there was any indication the legend likes rap, he hung out with Young Thug early last year, before lending his “Bennie & the Jets” vocals to A Tribe Called Quest’s album.
