Koch Records, Kill Yo’ Self!

Bol is typically the blogging angel of death over here at XXL. So after I asked you folks if Koch Records was really the Def Jam Records that I remembered from my youth the homey DJ DaddyMack hit me up on the Twitter that Koch Records had gone and killed they self.

Actually, they have dissolved themselves into their parent corporation. This can’t be good news. There was supposed to be a gang of records dropping under Koch including the homey Joell Ortiz’ latest joint. I think they were holding something from Slim Thug, Alchemist, Havoc and a D-Block project as well.

This fucked the fuck up economy is taking niggas out while they sleep like an Israeli helicopter gunship. It’s a good thing for Jim Jones that he stays wearing that 1929 soupline hobo swagger hairline. He might be the only cat that can weather this economic storm.

    dont think the name change will affect anything, should be business as usual. I hope anyway i want to hear that Joell Ortiz joint.

    Koch was more Loud Records than Def Jam to me. Ni modo still messed up.

  • these posts are racist

    Props for incorporating the Israeli gunship analogy…that’s hot Joe. (In Chi we say “Joe”, not son, or whatever).

The point to take away from all this is that jim jones is an extremely dirty, ugly arab hooker looking motherfucker and tpar tpar tpar tpar tpar tpar can eat a big fat diiiiiiiiiick

      Well it definetely is not Def Jam for sure especially not Def Jam in their prime, not even Rawkus. But they coulda played their cards right and gone major a long time ago, if they even intended to do that in the first place.

      AZ- Final Call
      AZ- Undeniable
      Cormega – Legal Hustle
      A fura- Body of Life Force
      Digisnacks
      Giancana Story
      Royce da 5’9- Death is Certain
      Alchemist – 1st Infantry
      Bodega Chronicles

      I’m sure Steve Rifkin woulda supported these better but the talent is equal.

    he looks like he is smelling himself in that picture. and he kinda likes it.

    Jonesy just loves the aroma of a hot fart…reminds him of his fresh morning breath.

    E1 MUSIC ya’ll.

    I think that is the lamest company name ever.

    This move is like mommy/daddy taking that allowance away. Now u gotta ask them for everything when you know half the time they gonna say “NO”.

    Dudes on that label gonna play musical chairs to keep their deals.

    At least flatline after the Ortiz project.
