Storied hip-hop label Penalty Ent. is back and seeking talent


Penalty Records is back and looking for new talent.

The label that introduced artists such as CNN, Noreaga, The Beatnuts, and Crooked Lettaz featuring David Banner has relaunched and landed a distribution deal with powerhouse Sony RED.

Penalty CEO Neil Levine says the label is looking for artists who have the potential for longevity in the music business.

“We’re focused on artist development, talented new producers and musicians who will be here many years down the road,” says Levine. “We want the superstars of tomorrow, today. We want to help develop them for successful careers that will produce generations of Hip-Hop fans. I want to be transparent and create real partnerships with my artists that foster growth as well as creating the new breed of executives…. It’s all about respect, having fun and doing really good business together.”

Thus far, Penalty has inked Fort Lauderdale rapper Hi-Rez and the supergroup EMC that features Masta Ace, Punchline, Wordsworth and Strick.

Penalty is asking any interested artists or musicians to email them at [email protected].
