    How exactly did Jay Rock pick to be signed to Strange Music?

    Just wondering because I've been listening to the new mixtape of his called "Black Friday" and I just wonder why he picked to be on Strange Music I mean obviously other labels wanted to offer him far more. I mean dude spits fire in his own way and its great I just don't see how finally someone like him ends up on Strange.



    Usually they pick some label that offers more money and offers chances of getting on the radio.



    So, yeah I would like to know why exactly if anyone knows.

    Doubt it because Strange isn't wraped around the juggalo ideology of having a close knit family although however a number of juggalo related Tech fans have tried hard to put that on Strange some of which are the ones who obsessively post here daily. But however I doubt that because if thats what he wanted he'd have chosen psychopathic records.

    He probably got tired of label politics and it seems as if strange embraces artistic freedom which is completely opposite of the majors. Jay rock seems to have his sights on more things that just money and he seems like hes willing to grind it out like most successful indie rap acts do. Just my opinion though,what the fuck do i know???

    Yup. He has stated that he was fucked over by a major label and admitted that at the end, it was dumb for him to take the money, because he was so restricted.

    Good to know because it seems to me other artists ended up leaving Strange or just not falling through with Strange just because they secretly plotted on the side to go with another label if they offer a lot of money.

    I don't want to see Jay Rock leave I want him to stay serious and never treat Strange as a label he once used as a quick label to ride with or some shit. Hes too good to ever see him leave unlike other former Strange artists.

    The only artists I can think of that "left" were Skatter Man & Snugg Brim, Grave Plott (Kinda I guess), Prozak (I think?? Lol) In the earlier times of Strange there was Critical Bill, and Ill Bill (Once again, I think but not sure) Either way, none of those guys went to another label and got paid a lot more money.
