When Roc-A-Fella records launched in the mid-90’s, nobody imagined that the label JAY Z, Dame Dash, and Biggs started would take over the rap game. With JAY Z serving as the flagship artist, Roc-A-Fella ballooned into something special. Artists like Kanye West, Beanie Sigel, and Cam’ron helped bolster the label and made the crew a formidable one in the world of rap. Sadly, the label was dismantled in the early 2000’s because of tension between JAY Z and Dame Dash. This resulted in artists being divided and that ultimately broke up the once indomitable label. Now, peace has been restored to some degree. JAY Z brought out Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel, Freeway, and the Young Gunz at his B-Side concert last year. In addition, JAY and Dame called a truce. Even though the label isn’t around anymore, in our hearts of hearts, it’ll always be The Roc for life.
