    I bought a ton of Rawkus 12''. And those "mixtapes" they had were on some other shit. Straight beating

    Same here , I was in some trouble and had to skip town for awhile , I came home to find someone stole my crates , burned my soul .

    What a asshole man. straight funk booty asshole

    Still hurts , if you collect records (I assume you do) , you know how much that hurts .

    Record collections are not cheap but the worst part is there are records I will never see again .

    Yes sir I'm a crate digger. Man the worst feeling I was in this resale shop and copped E-Rule "Listen Up b/w Synopsis" for a buck. Let my homie Dave borrow and I've never seen that record again. You know how long I was digging, about 5 hrs in that one store and that shit fell off a stack I was'nt even looking in. Man, inhaling dust and going through tons of records for somebody to steal or take your shit, I feel your pain!

    You can thank the Roots for the distribution Rawkus got. There was a Questlove interview where he explained the situation.

    i think the story goes that they had to close down because even though they were putting out tons of quality music and starting to blow up they were jerking the artists to the point where nobody really wanted to mess with them anymore.

    i don't know the exact details but it seems like the label and the artists weren't seeing eye-to-eye.

    That seems to be the general consensus .

    Classic ...


    I almost bought this album off the strength of that single and because Eminem was on the cover.

    That was before niggas started viewin Em as a clown I prolly grew out of Em the first year he came out never was a real fan anyway never bought none of his albums. It was just taboo to see white rappers back then, especially as young as I was(cuz I missed earlier white rappers). I always wanted to see a white female rapper, got too much of it now, Stop it.

    98/99 was prolly the best Hip Hop years of my life.

    I wish I could remember what I bought instead.

    Prolly some No Limit or CM album.

    That Eminem song gets no play from me , the rest of the album was dope . (especially if you were from the East.)

    Our radio stations weren't playing what we wanted to hear unless it was the CMFAMALAM Show , it wasn't a regional thing , however it was dope to see "Underground" artists get some burn .

    I can't see non of the vids @ work but Rawkus was killin it. And the "Game" recordings had some heaters too, they had strippers and porn stars on all the album covers

    Put me on to game recordings when you get a minute .

    what's wild is you would hear rappers come through stretch and bobbito or underground railroad and you never heard of them before or they just started buzzing and then all of a sudden a few months go by and you hear them all over the place. for me this was eminem, dmx, the lox, jay-z, big-l, biggie i seem to remember hearing freestyles from, wu-tang, the list goes on.

    the fact is i really wonder if those guys would be around they way they are/were if it wasn't for nyc undergrond radio because even back then hot 97 was already on their bullshit to some degree.

    I used to fck with Rawkus hard, got all 3 of the SoundBombing albums, used to love The Lyricist Lounge to... Didnt know Murdoch fam where involved though... Yo wernt Smut Peddlers on the label?
  • (Nope)(Nope) Posts: 887 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I think Smut peddlers were Eastern Conference .

    I never really fucked with them , every now and then Mr. Eon would collab with someone I respected and Cage has maybe 3 songs I can listen to without wanting to beat a panda to death with a bamboo stick .
