Nervous

As one of the longest standing independent record labels in the US, Nervous Records has built its reputation through a willingness to take chances on new sounds and new producers.

The label was famous almost immediately when it started back in 1991 because of its eye-catching, very distinctive cartoon character logo. Nervous’ first major dance release came in 1992, with “Feel Like Singing” by Sandy B. Nervous decided at that point to focus its energy on expanding the label’s musical field. The label’s first step outside the house music arena was with the Brooklyn, NY-based rap group, Black Moon, whose single “Who Got Da Props?” virtually put Brooklyn back on the map as a center of hip hop.

Nervous eventually released the debut album from Black Moon and Smif N Wessun, titled “Enta Da Stage” and “Dah Shinin” respectively. Both albums are now widely considered two of the most significant hip hop albums in the entire genre, and are top ten on most lists of the greatest East Coast Hip Hop Albums.
