    Future Sales: NME has a few heavy hitters sprinkled with some artists that have loyal and strong fan bases. Although many of those artists may not be known to move weight, on a strong power label I'm sure they can be consistent. FHFs are a stacked label with a diverse group of artists that can push units with ease. It's apparent that this label was built to sell records by any means necessary.

    FHF

    Future Critical Acclaim: Again the diversity of FHFs almost certainly guarantees them a ton of critical acclaim if handled correctly. NME has your sure fire artists mixed with a group of artists that fans and critics alike are itching to hear. Once again this is going to depend on how the label is handled and managed. I believe this comes down to the CEOs of the labels. Birdman has constantly shown he can reinvent the wheel. Advantage NME.

    NME

    Longevity: NME just has too many artists that have been in the game and consistently been putting in work for years. FHFs is sprinkled with experience but NME is a tad bit more top heavy. I'm going with the experience on this one.

    NME

    Album Covers/Tracklist: As far as Album Covers, just brilliant on both sides. This is easily the best match up of album covers that I have seen. So many stand out covers on both sides. I had to break it down to tracklists and production and NME gets the edge on this. They get so close to the artists visions or what we think are the artists visions, that it's almost scary. Close category but...

    NME

    Cohesion: If you notice NME is almost broken down into different segments or camps to form a whole. This could work or it could be a house divided. FHFs methodically put together a roster that just meshes.

    FHF

    This was a championship match up plain and simple. Salute to both labels because this was way too close.

    Winner: New Money ENT

    Future Sales: Wow. Both got heavy hitters that will sale individually. NME got the Big 3 (Nicki, Drake and Waynee) and all can go platinum (gold for Nicki,ctfu). You just don't know if the Wu joints will hold up their end when it comes to moving records. Freak HO's got too much pop appeal.


    Vote goes to FH&F


    Future critical acclaim: I'm going with NME here. The collaborative albums (Drake + Sade and J.Cole), the Wu Reunion and Individual albums from those members will really keep people talking down the line. Eminem, JT's album and Daft Punk will get that acclaim, but a few of those other albums could be hit or miss. I don't know too many classic Pop records.

    New Money Ent.


    Longevity- I like New Money Ent here. The younger artists will carry their albums indiviudally, and Si did a good job mixing the younger talents with the veteran talent. I would love to hear Weeknd w/ Sade and Alicia Keys. Even the younger producers got a hand in the Wu albums with RZA. You got to give these Vets some shine with the younger rappers.


    New Money


    Album Covers: Just a phenomenal job by both label owners. Uggghhh.. I think I'm going with Sion. Yeah, you know what? Sion. Fuck it. That Lady Gaga cover is my favorite since Bergs Curren$y cover. I'm not a huge fan of that Eminem cover. That J.Cole + Drake cover reminded me too much of the Weeknds Trilogy cover. I really comes down to creativity to me. Although all of Sions covers show the actual rappers face on it, that FILA cover pushes me over the hump. I like the gif. ideas on Drakes album and Child's Play. My question. Did New Money help out on any albums on Freak Ho's in Flows? (looking at that Macklemore album)


    New Money

    Track Lists: Ehh... this might be a tie.. All of FH&F's joints make sense. Its crazy how consistent he is in this area. I mean. The chemistry on the Eminem and JT albums is right there. I think I bigged homie up about this his last round. I'm just impressed with how well put together these albums are.

    As for Sion, I really like the production and track names on the Wu albums. Like i said earlier, that mixture of young producers with the vet producers really work well for me. Although I think Sion put more effort into his track list (did I see Digi Phonics on that Method Man album? Hot), I'm really on the fence here..


    I'll go with FH&F's here.


    Cohesion- I'm going with Sion here, easily. FH&F's would've beat most others in this category, but Si got Drake with his set of producers. Wu with all members and producers. FH&F's did a great job overall with what he got. I just think SIon's roster is just too deep.





    My winners is New Money ENT.
