    Cash Money...they're still around, still relevant, and still releasing albums...The Roc had alot of hype and attention, but the only major seller all that time before Cam'Ron was Jay...until Cam's Come Home WIth Me no other ROC album had gone plat...Death Row had a run, but Suge Knight fucked that all up...Bad Boy, somehow, someway Puffy keeps himself relevant...but only himself never any artists for the long term (though very genres have artists lasting 3,4,5 albums anyway)...so I'll give to to CMR for not only still being around, but still being relevant

    I would have to say Cash Money, but that doesn't mean they've had the better talent. I think Bad Boy or Death Row had the best talent.

    how is bad boy defunct?

    anyway in their prime deathrow was the most dominate between 92-96. Bad Boy has longevity, and No Limit was hot for like a year and half in the late 90's. No Limit didn't blow up on a nationwide scale until late 97 and they ran until 99. Cash Money is doing alright with Wayne.

    I agree that Death Row had the most powerful impact out of all of those labels, such a shame that Suge ruined it all.

    For longevity, definitely Cash Money, even though I haven't been a fan since the Hot Boys days.
  • Cash Money is dominating during a drought.

    Their success is second tier compared to Death Row, Bad Boy & Roc A Fella

    Young Money and Cash Money are two different things... Young Money is Drake, Tyga, Nicki and Lil Twist etc..... Cash Money is B.G., Turk, Juvenile and Mannie Fresh etc... Sure Lil Wayne and Birdman still there but if you don't see the difference ur just a stan

    this nigga said g-unit
    hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    they had a helluva 3 year run but don't compare them niggas to no limit, bad boy, death row, or cash money

    Iuno bruh G-unit did like 50 million in sales, lets not even go into what the merchandise did lol. Bad Boy wasnt even that huge, after Big & Forever they were struggling and had no artists worth listening to cept Black Rob maybe. Death Row & No Limit are legit but no one but Death Row could match the sales and financial success G-Unit had.

    Young Money is a division under Cash Money. Every release under Young Money is an imprint of Cash Money Records. Stop the madness.

    To put it in perspective...

    Cash Money has had 7 Platinum-selling artists (Juvi, Nicki, Drake, B.G., Big Tymers, Wayne, Hot Boys) and 2 dominating runs: 1998-2002 (4), 2006-current (6+)

    Bad Boy = Biggie, Mase, Faith, Diddy, Total, 112, Dream, Black Rob, Cassie, Danity Kane, LOX
    Run: 1994 to eh... I'll be nice and say 2001ish (7)

    Death Row = Dre, Snoop, Tupac, Tupac, Tupac
    1992-1996 (4)

    Roc-A-Fella = Jay, Kanye, Beanie, Cam'ron, Diplomats, DJ Clue, Juelz
    1997-2004 (7) ... I'd say that's around when they stopped being a hot label and just became Jay & Kanye

    Ruff Ryders = DMX, Jadakiss, Styles, Eve, LOX
    1998-2004 (6)

    G-Unit = 50, Banks, Buck, Game
    2002-2006 (4)

    No Limit = Master P, Snoop Dogg, Silkk, Mystikal, TRU, C-Murder
    1997-2000 (3)

    Murder INC = Ja Rule, Ashanti, The Murderers, Lloyd
    1999-2004 (5)

    Yeah, but also when you look at Ruff Ryders, DMX was the only one doing those type of numbers aside from Eve. Cash Money has had a few artists go Platinum plus more than once.

    Lol now you exaggerating. Eve never sold like Lil Wayne. Carter 3 and Carter 4 alone >>> Eve's total sales. Kiss' most popular album took like a year to sell 1 million. Drake & Nicki do that in 2 months.

    Only thing they have over them is X, but Juvenile + Lil Wayne make up for that.
