Profile Bought By Arista


Hip-Hop label Profile Records

has been snatched up by Major Label Arista Records. Profile's

first record was It's Like That from Run-D.M.C., which was also

the first gold album from a Hip-Hop group. This deal should be

good for some of the groups signings, which include Camp Lo, DJ

Quik, and one of Quik's acts, 2ND II None. The first release for

Profile/Arists will be Hand in Hand, from DJ Quik's upcoming album,

Rhythmalizm, which is his fourth album. Profile was responsible

for such classics acts like: Run D.M.C., Dana Dane and DJ Clark

Kent, Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, Nine, Poor Righteous Teachers,

Rob Base & D.J. E-Z Rock, Smoothe Da Hustler and Special Ed.
