    Aw man.. I want a judge vote for this one!
  • jonojono Right fist = power, left fist = unity Posts: 28,817 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Labels will be evaluated on the following criteria: future sales, future critical acclaim, longevity, album covers/tracklist, and roster/tracklist cohesion

    By this criteria Sion Records wins. Eminem alone sends the likelihood of sales being high for his labels. It was smart to do the duo double album too.

    Looking at the track listing Sion records also looks like something a fan of the artists would enjoy. I mean a Scarface album produced mostly by Mike Dean? The evil triad of 50/Em/Dre? Those are mean combinations. Also like the Mobb Deep/Alchemist connection which could be used for solo projects by Prodigy.

    I think he tapped into what fans of these individual artists would want to hear and picked producers that mesh well with the sound that artist would be known for.

    It appeases longtime fans because it's familiar but has enough creativity to bring something new to the table as well.

    Still reading a lot here like the new projects added by ice......

    Went best of 5 for each section:

    Future Sales: Sion(3-0) one reason Eminem, that is the top selling artiste and he is dropping three (3) albums. No one on Ice's roster is touching Eminem when it comes to sales. And while Ice has "youth" on his side in 5 years those "Best of albums with hits from Sion artiste will still sell crazy records.

    Future Critical Acclaim: Ice(3-2) for "DETOX " the myth the legend the myth however Ice artiste have time on their side in terms of ability to grow I think and he has creativity in that his label covers alot of genres not just rap, the group albums prove that. Sion label is a throwback RAP LABEL you either Rapping or producing we dont sign them pretty boy singers! we getting features from them and we aint paying!...but Sion's greatest thing is also his worse thing his artiste are proven and already have their "classics" and at this point they fighting ghosts of previous glory while Ice is yet to come....

    Longevity: Ice (4-1) Kinda contradicts my "best of album..." line above but that referred to just putting out an album to make some money, I view longevity as music videos, NEW material albums, creativity shifting with times etc and I dont see Sion's artiste in 10 years still running with the wolves so to speak they are already veterans and would proabaly dial it back in terms of records etc while Ice's roster will be in their peak Nipsey Chance Wiz Action...Sion is the Celtics with Garnett/Pierce/Allen....Rondo we getting championship level play for nexxt 3/4 years but after that LLoyd Banks(Rondo) is going to be on his own battling a continuing impressive and improving Pacers/Gstate team....he could probably sign younger talent but we working with whats on deck.

    Album Covers/Tracklist:Sion (3-2) Both album covers are well done and detailed, not feeling the TI and the 50 - Street King both kinda seem like yall wanted to do so much and just settled on a simplier concept. Sion's label an artiste fit as does his track list and production, sorry not feeling the excess tyler production. that FAB album loving the name and that Jeezy.

    Roster/Tracklist cohesion:(Sion 4-1) the three headed monster he got > Dr. Dre> Eminem>50 Cent> LLoyd Banks>Mobb Deep stop right there in real life thats a label thats sold millions of records! so we know it works and add in uncle FACE!!!! no id pete rock and rick rubin. Sion artiste all mesh well and produce all variants of that hip hop/rap old school vibe while I see Ice as a movement for the future with artiste that shouldnt really mesh well but because their so different it works,I love the selection of personal for each group album but Still gotta give it to Sion he reciprocated an actual winning formula a PROVEN winning formula.

    I like some of Sion's, but that shit is lookin like Shady/Aftermath/G Unit with a little bit of Rap A Lot and Roc Nation thrown in for Face and Elec.

    half time laker game so I finished it. this was hard cause both those labels went in

    Cover art-Tied
    Track listing-sion
    Future sales-Taylor has youth but sion has Eminem who can sell a blank cd.
    More successful-anyone with Dre at the helm is bound to be in top of the game (look at ruthless deathrow aftermath and now Sion records) both are dope labels

    Ima have to choose sion he put blood,sweat And tears into this shit he went HAM and cheese with the fantasy shit he made moves to make his roster strong and I gotta respect that hustle.

    Aye just 2 things I wanna point out and I wont say anything else LOLOL.


    Don't forget half my label is composed of legendary producers who are STILL making noise and elevating sounds for an era across many genres not just Hip-Hop (and are dropping hit records one after another).

    And it's cool to be hot for 15 minutes but All my artists have careers that are at least a decade old (some even longer & have at least 1-2 classics) and are transcending the game with businesses, impact, production and still making music that are hits/killing the charts.


    THAT'S ALL I WANTED TO SAY LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

    Aye fam you gotta explain it, can't just pick somebody & not explain - you gotta explain why you voting in more detail. You can use the example Cheese used or go into more detail as to why you selected who you picked.

    I'll drop my vote sometime tomorrow,
    I need time to thoroughly analyze this,
    without basing my opinion,
    off personal likes/dislikes of certain artists..

    I prolly should read the rules as well..

    i vote for Sion.

    future sales: Sion. for sure. with Eminem, 50 and Dr Dre

    future critical acclaim: Sion's tracklists look real strong especially Lloyd Banks, Jay Electronica etc

    longevity: tossup

    album covers/tracklist and roster/tracklist : as previously stated i'm not a fan of TYler the Creator and Weeknd is aight to me so that hurts Iceberg

    Ultimately I knew competing against Sion would be like this. Can't get past the Eminem/Dre factors. Only other label I knew would be this tough was iBex.


    Oh and that bitch nigga genoslide juggalo's vote shouldn't count that's the 2nd time he threw out a biased vote against me without explanation
