” In Full Gear : Vendetta “
It’s somewhat surreal to think that the VENDETTA VINYL wave has steadily gained momentum for the last ten years 2012-2022….When we first started their was only a handful of indie Hip Hop labels rocking vinyl pieces (One Leg Up Records, Six 2 Six, Redef, Diggers With Gratitude, Chopped Herring, and a few others)….I remember just like it was yesterday – the majority of cats I came across were selling their wax collections and looked at Serato as their savior…
FFWD TO 2022, now everybody is doing everything in their power to get pieces pressed up…I’m not mad, since I’m a DJ I’m actually happy I have more options to choose from when I’m record shopping….But the truth of the matter is that the overwhelming majority of the “boutique labels” that were around back then, simply no longer exist..
VENDETTA VINYL IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE..
We are in the hardcore Hip Hop holy grail history books, and regardless of all the trickery, fuckery, games, dick riding, and shenanigans, we are still flourishing without the aid of a publicist, heavy budgets and sponsorships…Records we put out almost ten years ago are still selling domestically and internationally (Some resellers have inflated the prices to astronomical levels, which is still baffling to us)… I’m truly humbled by all the support we have received from all over the globe, from all walks of life, from all types of backgrounds…Hopefully after all this time you fully realize that their is a certain quality and consistency with our releases..
Everything from the artwork, pressings, imagery, and music is produced with the highest scrutiny….
So please be on the lookout next week for the VENDETTA VINYL ten year commemorative crew neck sweaters, “Made by hardrocks, worn by hardrocks”….
