Anonymous asked: Did you guys ever have the chance to sign with a label like Def Jux or Rhymesayers? If so, why did you decide to pass on the deal?
We did a one-off deal with ILL Boogie,which, at the time, was distributed through Caroline like Def Jux and Subverse were at the time. We also were talking with Bigg Jus about doing a deal with Subverse (his label) before he walked away from that situation. We ultimately decided to do our deal with Gotee because they caught the vision and had everything we were looking for. We didn’t necessarily want to send out a grip of packets and “get signed” just to be a B-level artist on a label we had no personal connection with.
The truth is, in full…a label is a label. Some better than others, of course. I have no complaints with who we rolled with.
Deepspace5 Recordings is still alive, though.
