Founded in 1989 by Chris Schwartz and Philadelphia hip-hop engineer and producer Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo as a joint venture with Columbia Records. Early releases were marketed by Enigma Records (3). Artists included Cypress Hill, Kriss Kross, The Fugees and Lauryn Hill.

In 1999, Schwartz and Nicolo stopped the label. Schwartz and Kevon Glickman continued with RuffNation Records; Nicolo continued with Judgement Records. The label was relaunched in July 2012.
