21Grand Hustle
T.I. one of the best rappers in the game hand down, he is in the top five
With the unity and diversity they bring to our ears in the music industry, they must be big
It's one of the most growing record labels out there right now, many young rappers and legendary rappers like, young dro and B.O. B and killer mike and dj drama and of course the king himself T. I known as (TIP)

22Se7enth Fury Grammaton Records
This has got to be one of the most exciting labels around! They're not afraid to support the newcomer, and that gets a 10 from me!
Great releases on this label!
Awesome label. good luck on getting to the top ten!
[Newest]Awesome Label.. Good Music!

Geffen, is an amazing Rock label! Nirvana, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, Blink-182, Weezer, Papa Roach. There's so much more, I honestly believe it's the best record company ever created! Oh and there's Elton John, John Lennon, Eagles... No big deal, right?
Good Bands and Artists were signed; Nirvana, both Rob Zombie and his original band White Zombie, and many others.
Geffen also did soundtracks to Sabrina the Teenage Witch (1998), Silverado (1985) and Bratz The Movie (2007). They soon entered the tween pop music scene with the Slumber Party Girls, Melissa Joan Hart and Daechelle.


24XL Recordings

25Roc-A-Fella Records


27Bad Boy Records
Biggie smalls is enough to prove it's a good label, despite its recent decline
Bad Boy Records is also the official home of Dream (a fairly popular artist made up of 4 cute girls).


Shania TWain. This is really my only reason. Ha. Love her. And they signed her... When Canada wouldn't.

29GOOD Music
Kanye west, Kid cudi, Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, John Legend, Big Sean, Cyhi the prynce,2 chainz, dbanj, common
You guys are ill spwcially kanye

30Dominion Worldwide Entertainment
The newest and best label out with artist like Locust, Her Majesty, Real $ Money, Ben G, Big Rich and K.O.G.W.
They are taking the game to a whole new level! Soon Dominion Worldwide Entertainment will be a household name.
#1 Hands down. Best artist, production and promotions. Shout to Big Rich... Looking for that New Real $ Money and Her Majesty CD
[Newest]Dominion Worldwide IS going to the top!

Anti-records is the only TRUE independent label on this list. The other indie labels on this list have parent companies. Anti-records is also the only label on this list that gives their artist 100% creative control.
Creative control is the blood of an artist

32G-Unit Records
50, Banks, Buck, Game, Yayo, Mobb Deep.. Epic
Top 10 record label in the industry
50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, Game, Mobb Deep, Ma$e, M.O.P., Olivia...


33Fearless Records
Best for bands such as Of Mice and Men, Mayday Parade, Pierce the Veil and many more.
Also is the label that does punk goes... And signed the best rock bands around

This record label is the prettiest label I've ever seen. I am infatuated with it. By far the most beautiful record label on Earth by the greatest band of all time.


36Nuclear Blast
I'm just curious to how a label can be #36 on a list with the following bands: Slayer, Hammerfall, Nightwish, Sabaton, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Kreator, Epica, Sonata Arctica, Soulfly, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, Sepultura, BLACK SABBATH, Immortal, Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth, Blind Guardian, Motörhead, ACDC, Meshugga AND Metallica, to name a few. How is this not number one?
I love nuclear blast, they have a lot of the metal bands that are not giants, such as Metallica and slayer, but still pretty well known. Some examples are enslaved and sonata arctica.
How this is not in top 5 at least? It got one of the best bands of all time!


37Cash Money

38Spinnin' Records
Best label for electronic music
I love house music, keep up the good work!
It all starts with good music.

39Death Row Records
Tupac, dr. dre, snoop dogg, nate dogg, MC Hammer etc.
750$ mil sales, 150mil albums sales less than a decade, can't top that. Most successful label.

40Sumerian Records
Maybe, the best in their genre
