I started SMC Recordings is an independent hip hop record label established in 2005 in San Francisco, California .The full-service independent record label SMC primarily signs and distributes established hip-hop artists.
SMC originally grew out of my vision early in the 2000’s to launch a new kind of record label, one based in myhome town, that would be about alternative music.
I crossed paths with Will Bronson, and SMC came one step closer to being realized. An ambitious Bay Area-bred music fan and aficionado, Bronson was covering Northern California’s colorful hip-hop scene for a fledgling urban music magazine. I hired Will Bronson as his partner and in the A&R position. His instincts were right-the first release brought in and shepherded by Bronson was Ya Boy‘s first cousins, Bay Area hip-hop artists San Quinn and Messy Marv.
