In Brief

With a roster that boasts more stars than the Milky Way, the Violator record company and management arms are among the most impressive in hip-hop. The business' second self-serving compilation delivers certified club hits from clients Busta Rhymes ("What It Is") and Noreaga ("Grimey"). Capone, Havoc and Noyd also breathe fire with confrontational raps that are as impressive as they are chilling.
