BEST LOCAL RECORD LABEL Minneapolis 2010 - Rhymesayers Entertainment
There's no denying that Rhymesayers Entertainment is the biggest and most well known record label in the Twin Cities. But it's not the best local record label based on reputation alone. Over the past 12 months, we've seen P.O.S. become a breakout star and the sleeper hit of last year's Warped Tour, Brother Ali rapping alongside the legendary Roots crew on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the wildly successful second installment of the Soundset festival last summer, and a slew of new releases, including the long-awaited Felt 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez by the supergroup of Slug, Murs, and Aesop Rock. Never content to rest on its past success, the Rhymesayers crew is already putting the pieces in place for 2010, making it clear that it also intends to compete for next year's Best Record Label.
