Mac, Mia X, Mystikal, Fiend, Kane & Abel, Soulja Slim, Magic, Bleed, and BBP would sh*t on your fav. roster

You can't find a more dynamic roster coming out of one city besides CMR(91-on)

If it wasnt for P Cashmoney would have never blown up like it did. Your basically comparing an empire to 5 dudes, its not even close.

death Row is easily the best label ever from the quality of music to 3 of the greatest artists/producers being on that label

Badboy. EVERY album released from 1994 - 2003 sold at least 500k or better. If you just counting rap then you can make a case for other labels.

Without Def Jam none of these labels wouldnt even exist.
Def Jam during the Russell Simmons Era will always be the crown holder

True and if it wasn't for P peeping what Cash money was doing on the New Orleans underground circuit in 95, No Limit might not have been as successful.

Ruthless Records, easily for myself. Although there may have been some contention unbeknownst to myself. You had innovation, classics, versatility, etc.

Now as far as getting your paper . . . Good luck.

between death Row and No Limit. death Row had a TON of talent and STILL had sh*t in the vaults but P's business savvy puts all of these cats to shame. There went a bunch of talented cats on the label but P sold that No Limit soldier sh*t very well. Suge was a good businessman but you just knew that his tactics would catch up to him eventually, which it did

Def Jam is up there as well, historically, but they had some down years. Especially post RR. Always viewed them as a mega though. They had a lot of clout.
