After leaving longtime their long time label (Relativity) after “Take It or Squeeze It” in 2001, The Beatnuts took the indy route for “The Originators” and released it with Landspeed. The Queens duo is looking to make some moves again and signed with Penalty Recordings, the one time indy powerhouse.
“I watched their career develop on Relativity and Loud Records and I became a huge fan,” CEO Neil Levine said. “The Beatnuts are career artists who produce, rap and tour; they are timeless and can make hit records. This is the perfect artist to re-launch the Penalty brand.”
With their undeniably catchy yet gully style, The Beatnuts have had some sure shot hits in “Off The Books” and “Watch Out Now,” but have never gotten the promotion necessary to take them to the next level or stardom. Be on the lookout for the 7th album on Penalty, hopefully within the next year.
