Has he ever released a vinyl?

Yes. According to Discogs, the artist previously released two 7″ vinyls of his breakthrough track Old Town Road which went viral in 2019.

The first vinyl includes the original track and a version featuring Billy Ray Cyrus while the second vinyl has the same tracks as the first as well as a few more remixes including one by Diplo.

Old Town Road maintained number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a total of 19 weeks and broke the record for the longest consecutive run at the top spot.

Although it seems, the rapper has not continued the tradition with his other singles, as his Old Town Road vinyls are his only vinyl releases so far.
