The other day while looking at the back of my Beanie Sigel album The B. Coming, I noticed it was Damon Dash‘s new imprint, The Damon Dash Music Group.
And then, I noticed the tiny logo next to it which read ‘Criminal Background Records’ and it got me thinking – where is the longevity in a record label like Criminal Background Records?
Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s good that rappers create companies for themselves, but at the same time what you name them is very important.
Take a look.
- Bad Boy Records – It’s CEO beat down Steve Stout with champaign bottles.
- Ruthless Records – Known for jerking it’s artists and producers from Ice Cube to Dr. Dre.
- Death Row Records – Tupac Shakur. ‘Nuff said.
Maybe it’s me but I just can’t see me telling my parents I work for Criminal Background Records.
