Their success was not an overnight one, with roots going back as far as 1997 the independent label today houses a heavy roster. Currently the indie (what does that even mean anymore) conglomerate consists of rappers Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, & the newest signees Isaiah Rashad and female singer SZA. They also house a pretty impressive stable of in house producers including Digi+Phonics (Tae Beast, Sounwave, Dave Free and Willie B) as well as THC and King Blue.
