    DEF JAM FELL OFF IN THE 90’S

      Its sad to see Def Jam fall off like that after 1998 when they had Redman, Method Man, DMX, Jay-Z who dominated the game and moved units.

      Its such an epic fail how Def Jam is no longer relevant when they were once the premier rap label during 90s with all those iconic and influential artists on their roster.

      Its just sad that most of their artists that sell for them are not rappers, but R & B and pop artists. Its not even a rap label anymore really. Its pathetic how they did the veteran artists dirty and either phased them out or just plain don’t promote them at all when they have releases.

    Why is this even news? If a rapper who is established or has a following signs to Def Jam nowadays, it doesn’t have the relevance it once had in the 90s when Def Jam was dominant in the game.

    I’m sure y’all seen artists like Jadakiss and Fabolous sign to Def Jam the last few years, it didn’t make an astronomical impact on their unit sales numbers at all.

    Def Jam is such a joke now. It fell off after 1998 when they last had relevant artists who were influential.
