Exemplified most by 50 Cent and his G-Unit entourage, the brand new York mixtape circuit continues to be an important mating surface for developing rap artists. The Harlem-based Crimson City staff, known because of their collaborations using the Diplomats, released many underground mixtapes in the first 2000s, offering over 80,000 systems minus the support of any distribution label. Although they’re more a couple of performers based around the business Crimson Town Entertainment (also known as Crimson Town Productions) than a genuine rap group, the primary associates are Shiest Bub, El Kasa, and longtime underground MC “Don Bishop” Agallah, who’s also Crimson City’s main manufacturer. Once Shiest Bub obtained experience to advertise for Dipset market leaders Cam’ron and Juelz Santana, he founded Crimson City with El Kasa’s and “Don Bishop” Agallah’s help and produced himself CEO. By the end of 2004, they agreed upon an opportune cope with Babygrande Information that led the label release a a best-of/strikes compilation, three albums, and feasible solo projects. The 2005 Babygrande produces, Road towards the Riches: THE VERY BEST of the Crimson City Mixtapes as well as the Crimson Album, both kept spots at the top unbiased and rap recording charts. Regardless of the promising perspective, shaky relationships drove El Kasa, who cited factors of poor business and conversation, to keep the group in 2006.
