Quality Control Records or Roc-A-Fella Records?


Both Quality Control Records and Roc-A-Fella Records carry a shelf of hits under their belt. Roc Nation today is a force no-one can control, while Quality Control has just been sold for $300 million.

Now Celebrity Match Up want to know what record label would you choose out of Quality Control Records or Roc-A-Fella Records? Comment your answers below!

Quality Control Music is an American hip hop record label founded in March 2013. The label has many acts signed, including Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, and the City Girls. The label also has Cardi B signed under a management deal.

On February 8th, 2023, it was reported by the New York Times that QC was sold to Hybe America for $300 Million.

Quality Control, one of today’s most impactful music labels, are Complex's latest cover stars. Quavo, Offset, Takeoff, Lil Yachty, Coach K and Pierre "Pee" Thomas sit down to discuss the early days of their label, discovering Migos and Lil Yachty and their paths to stardom. 

They reveal how they broke out of a bad business deal with 300 Entertainment, leading up to the release of their multi-platinum hit "Bad and Boujee." Now with several plaques and award nominations on their resume, they break down their plans for world domination.

Roc-A-Fella Records was an American hip hop record label and music management company founded by record executives and entrepreneurs Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, Damon "Dame" Dash, and Kareem "Biggs" Burke in 1994.

After being turned down by several major labels, Carter, Dash and Burke started their own label through Priority Records.  The new millennium saw Roc-A-Fella begin to expand beyond one figurehead artist.

Roc-A-Fella Records was a label born out of necessity. Back in the mid-’90s, Jay Z was unable to land a record deal with a major label despite his obvious lyrical gifts. Lil Wayne said the Roc-A-Fella Records roster would make the perfect rivals for the Young Money crew in a potential Verzuz clash.
