To have the opportunity to work with so many talented artists.

We want to make great records that don’t feel corporatized in any way.
Within the Game (How does the label fit within the current climate of hip-hop? Or does it even fit in at all? What’s the label’s personality in relation to the rest of hip-hop?):
We feel we are the most forward thinking indie label in the business. We constantly strive to be innovative with everything we do.
