Origins and early formationEdit

The label was founded in 1991 in Oakland California by Jason Blaine who was disappointed by the fact that many rappers in the bay area were unsigned at the time.[1] He offered RBL Posse $10000 ahead of time to sign to his label which they quickly accepted due to the fact that they were still selling tapes on the street [1] Although the label never had any major commercially successful albums, Andre Nickatina's 1995 album I Hate You With a Passion appeared #79 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.[2]
