Starting A Hip Hop Record Label

Are you dreaming about starting your own hip-hop/rap record label? Maybe it's time to stop dreaming and start doing. The question is - How? How to turn your dreams into a reality? Where to begin?

I know, taking the first step is the most difficult thing to do. Especially, when there are so many questions showing up. Where to start, where to find the talent, how to produce and set up the music, how to get distribution, where to press up CDs, how to own your own masters, how to reach a global market, how to avoid costly mistakes, and many, many more.

Starting your own record label and implementing your love of hip hop into a real business can be challenging. Many people dream of owning their own record label. Most of them fail. The most important thing you need at the beginning is - information. Believe me, with the right information you can turn your love of music into some serious dollars.

Did you know:

  • Jay-z & Dame Dash started Rocafella Records
  • Dr. Dre. started Aftermath Records
  • Master P started No Limit Records
  • P Diddy started Bad Boy Records
  • ...

If they could do it - Why not you?

Enough said. It's time to turn your Hip Hop passion into some serious money. Remember, a journey to success starts with the first step.
