Rawkus

Rawkus

Profile:
New York City hip-hop label formed in 1995 that promoted independent and unknown underground artists. After putting out a steady stream of quality releases, the label closed sometime in 2001 and sold its rights to MCA Records.

NOTE: After MCA Records acquired Rawkus they started putting their style cat # on Rawkus releases. So any represses or new releases after the acquisition reflect an MCA Records style catalog number.
