Which record label had the better run, Death Row, Bad Boy, No Limit, Cash Money or Roc-A-Fella??

All of these labels were on top of the game @ one point or the other for a 10-11 stretch from 1993-2004, which one of em in your opinion dominated the most during that time frame.

    Aww shit almost forget about Cash Money, during the hot boy era from 98-00 they had the game in smash as well.

    how is bad boy defunct?

    anyway in their prime deathrow was the most dominate between 92-96. Bad Boy has longevity, and No Limit was hot for like a year and half in the late 90's. No Limit didn't blow up on a nationwide scale until late 97 and they ran until 99. Cash Money is doing alright with Wayne.

    Yeah y'all are right but u gotta look @ the timeline I gave out. From like 93-2003-2004. Now if we goin by longevity and til now Cash Money wins easily thanks to Wayne holdin down the fort after the Hot Boys left, and bringing n the Young Mibey crew. But goin back to my topic it's gotta be Death Row, from 93-96 they were unstoppable. They didn't even out many albums during that stretch and still sold like 50 million copies in a 4 year stretch that shit WILL NEVER happen again.

    @Soufside quality and quantity my nigga!!! The inc was cool, but they were really a one man army, Roc-A-Fella went way harder than they did in the early 2000's.

    Deathrow was the most dominate during its hey day, But sadly Badboy is still here so it is a toss up with YMCMB runnig a third given they are over a decade...

    how is it a toss up, nigga?
    bad boy is still here only because puff is still here puttin his face in nigga's videos and shit
    ymcmb is selling records
    they droppin hits
    plus it ain't over a decade, it's over 20 years
    Cash Money Records been around since the early 90s
    they are clearly head and shoulders above the rest of these labels

    Why is everybody shittin on No Limit??? From 96-99 jus about every album they dropped went gold or Platinum.
  • moyomoyo Posts: 1,558 ✭✭✭✭✭
    That's incredible when u think about the fact that P nem dropped a album once or twice a month. Lol
  • trilladelictrilladelic Posts: 4,181 ✭✭✭✭✭
    if u talkin impact then bad boy had the most. cmr use to be a healthy mixture of bad boy n deathrow, a lil stuntin n blingin' wit sum gangsta shit. now itz fulla weirdos..
  • moyomoyo Posts: 1,558 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Lol @ Soufside!!! I jus wish it could go back to Hot boy days sometimes. Smh Baby nem did what they had to do to survive n this era to make they money, but boy did they go left or what???

    Am I the only person who wonders what woulda happened if PAC wouldn't got shot and killed in Vegas & Bug suge nem wouldn't have smashed Orlando Anderson @ the MGM Grand??? I wonder how would that shit have played out. Would Snoop and the Pound stayed??? Would PAC have left the label after the 7 day theory album dropped??? I guess we'll never know.
  • DarthRozayDarthRozay Posts: 19,389 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'd say its between Roc-A-Fella and Death Row.

    Bad Boy might still be around but they've only had 1 artist that will actually be remembered. Will anyone remember Young Joc, Cassie, Danity Kane, etc? Nah..
