What the Hell Happened to DTP Records?

By now it's an old story, at least on RefinedHype. Ludacris has fallen off as an elite emcee. Not because he's "lost" whatever ability made him outstanding in the first place, but because it's got to be hard to care THAT much about killing every verse when you're literally making "Fast & Furious" money while you take a nap.

In the midst of all my pondering about Luda's standing in the game, I suddenly remembered that there's another aspect of Ludacris' career that has fallen even further, to the extent it appears most people seem to have forgotten it exists at all:

DTP Records


Let's begin by establishing some facts. One, there was a time when DTP was an absolutely legitimate force. The impact that


has on the game in 2013? That was DTP in 2003. In addition to multi-mutli platinum albums from the head honcho himself,


had released Chingy's platinum album, "Jackpot". (Yes, Chingy with a platinum album is a thing that really happened.).

Fact two, fast forward to 2013. I ask

on Twitter

, "Without Google/Wikipedia, how many artists currently on DTP can you name?" No one..let me repeat that, NO ONE, NOT ONE SINGLE FUCKING PERSON, was able to correctly name more than one artist currently signed to the once powerful label. Go ahead, without cheating, give it a shot yourself. I'll give you a minute.

Ok, now here's the actual current roster*:


Rudy Currence

Playaz Circle (the group with 2 Chainz, not 2 Chainz individually)


TK N Cash


Willy Northpole


Yep, that's all of 'em. Honestly, I couldn't tell you a single song any one those artists have done (with the exception of Playaz Circle, who don't really count). So how did we get here? How did


go from the top to a label so unorganized they signed a group with the worst name imaginable in the internet age, "Untitled"?

There doesn't seem to be one defining moment, rather the collapse of


seems to a slow but steady war of attrition that in many ways mirrors Ludacris' seemingly waning interest in his own rap career. Chingy left over some financial disputes; then re-signed years later when no one gave a fuck about him anymore, then left again. After years of not-quite-taking-off Shawna eventually left, Bobby Valentino was forced to change his name and left. Field Mob left. About 50 more rappers you've never heard of came and went.

And now, well, this is the label's most recent release:

To be sure, Luda is far from alone. Unsurprisingly, it appears almost impossible for any artist to maintain a successful solo career while also running a label. Lupe's 1st & 15th has completely folded, 50 Cent's G-Unit, once a dominant force, is quickly fading into the pages of rap history. If anything Ludacris' inability to sustain


's popularity is far more the rule than the exception, and overall he's certainly done better than most.

But the fact that I now find myself talking about


with the same sense of nostalgia that I talk about Super Nintendo feels remarkable. In hip-hop empires rise and fall on a monthly basis, and while it may be too early to start reading


its last rights, it does look like hip-hop should start preparing to write its eulogy.

Disturbing tha Peace

Disturbing Tha Peace (DTP) is an Americanrecord label founded by Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges. Today it operates as a subsidiary of Def Jam South Recordings, a division of Universal Music Group.[1]



Disturbing tha Peace was founded in 1998 by Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges, manager Chaka Zulu, and Zulu's brother Jeff Dixon.[2][3] The record label started as an independent label and was created to serve as an outlet for musicians hailing from the “Dirty South” especially for Ludacris who at the time failed to get a major label record deal. Incorporating all aspects of A&R Guidance, Marketing/Publicity, Promotions, Creative Sponsorship Opportunities, Touring and Performance set-up, and Long-term Artist Development.[4]

That same year the label released Ludacris' independent album Incognegro which it sold more than 50,000 copies that Ludacris sold himself out of the trunk of his car. Also that same year the Atlanta-based rapper caught his big break when he signed to The Island Def Jam Music Group's newly established Southern rap subsidiary, Def Jam South, and became the label's flagship Dirty South artist. In late 2000 Def Jam repackaged his underground album Incognegro as Back for the First Time, adding a few new songs: a UGK collaboration ("Stick 'Em Up"), a Neptunes production ("Southern Hospitality"), and a remix of his previously released song with Timbaland (retitled "Phat Rabbit"). The album's lead single, "What's Your Fantasy" became a major hit nationally, peaking at number 21 on the Hot 100, and the follow-up single, "Southern Hospitality", was similarly popular, charting at number 23. This pair of hits helped drive sales of Back for the First Time, which climbed all the way to number four on the Billboard 200, since its release, it has been certified triple platinum with over 3 million copies sold.


In 2001 the label released Ludacris' second album Word of Mouf which was an even greater success for Ludacris, selling over 281,000 copies in its first week of sales, charting at number three and spawning a series of hit singles that carried over well into 2002: "Area Codes", "Rollout (My Business)", "Saturday (Oooh! Ooooh!)", "Welcome to Atlanta", and "Move Bitch". The album was certified 2x Platinum becoming Ludacris' best-selling album to date with sales of over 3,616,000 copies in the United States, as of July, 2009.[5]

In 2002 the label released a collaboration album Golden Grain showcasing the assembly of talent signed to Ludacris' revived Disturbing tha Peace label in which it featured Shawnna, I-20, Tity Boi, Lil Fate, DJ Jay Cee also known as DJ JHB, and Ludacris himself on the album.

In 2003 the label released the soundtrack to the movie 2 Fast 2 Furious it spawned three hit singles "Act a Fool", "Pick Up the Phone", and Pump It Up". That same year the label became home to St. Louis rapper Chingy who released his platinum debut album Jackpot on the label. After a dispute over royalties, Chingy abruptly left the label. In late 2003 the label released Ludacris' third album Chicken-n-Beer his first to reach number one on the Billboard 200. Chicken -n- Beer brought with it another series of hits, including the Hot 100 number-one, Kanye West produced "Stand Up" and number-six "Splash Waterfalls".


In 2004, the label released Shawnna's debut album Worth tha Weight. It spawned two singles; "Shake Dat Shit" and "Weight a Minute". The album has sold 380,000 copies to date. That same year, the label released I-20's debut album. The album spawned two singles; "Fightin' in the Club" and "Break Bread". By the end of 2004, Ludacris released his fourth album The Red Light District, another number-one album loaded with hit singles "Get Back", "Number One Spot" and "Pimpin' All Over the World" which featured the label's new artist, R&B singer Bobby Valentino.

In 2005, the label released Valentino's self-titled debut album Bobby Valentino. A Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart-topper, it spawned three singles; "Slow Down", "Tell Me" and "My Angel (Never Leave You)". The sultry "Slow Down" announced the singer's rebirth as a DTP member in early 2005 and soon became a BET and radio favorite as the ballad was landing on numerous schools' prom ballots. By the end of 2005, Disturbing tha Peace released their second collaboration album Ludacris Presents: Disturbing tha Peace, featuring the label's roster of talent including the label's new artists Shareefa, Field Mob, Norfclk, Lazyeye, and Small World. The album spawned two singles; "Georgia" and "Gettin' Some". The album was certified gold.

In 2006, the label released Shawnna's second album Block Music. The album immediately followed "Gettin' Some", a highlight from the second Disturbing tha Peace album. The second single was "Damn" featuring Smoke of Field Mob. The album has so far sold over 240,000 copies in the U.S., and over 260,000 copies worldwide. That same year, Field Mob released their third album and their first under the label, Light Poles and Pine Trees. It spawned one single, the Jazze Pha-produced song "So What" featuring Ciara. This has become the duo's most successful hit to date (9-07), climbing to #10 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and #3 and #4 on the US Hot Rap Tracks and US Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs charts, respectively.[6] The album itself achieved #1 on the US Billboard Top Rap Albums and #7 on the US Billboard 200. It has sold over 200,000 copies.[6] The album's success has been at least partially attributed to better promotion of the group by DTP than that at their previous label, MCA Records. In late 2006, the label released Ludacris' Grammy Award-winning fifth album Release Therapy an introspective album on which he vowed that he would be taken more seriously than in the past. Another chart-topper, Release Therapy included only two Hot 100-charting singles, yet both were smashes: "Money Maker" (number one), "Runaway Love" (number two). The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart selling over 309,000 copies in the first week making it Ludacris' third number-one album in a row. To date, the album has sold over 1.3 million copies.[7] In the fall of 2006, the label released Shareefa's debut album Point of No Return it spawned two singles "Need a Boss", featuring rapper labelmate Ludacris, and "Cry No More", both singles were released that same year.


In 2007 the label released Bobby Valentino's second album Special Occasion, Valentino released the album's first single titled "Turn the Page" with mixed reviews. His second single, "Anonymous" featuring Timbaland, was released on April 9, 2007. Overall, the album received positive reviews from critics and audiences. Special Occasion debuted at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 92,000 copies in its first week, just over one-half of his previous album's first-week sales.[8] The album eventually peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[9][10] Since then the album has sold approximately 270,000 copies[11] In fall of 2007 the label released Playaz Circle's debut album Supply & Demand, their highly anticipated debut album featured the hit singles "Duffle Bag Boy" with Lil Wayne, "Betta Knock" and "U Can Believe It" with Ludacris. That same year Chingy returned to the label and released his fourth album and second with the label Hate It or Love It, the first official radio single was "Fly Like Me" featuring Amerie. The second single was announced by his Myspace and was "Gimme Dat" Feat. Ludacris and Bobby Valentino. The album debuted at #84 on the charts, selling 31,000 copies. The album failed to match the success like his first studio album, which was why Chingy was dropped from the label months after.

In early 2008 Bobby Valentino confirmed that he was no longer signed to either Def Jam or Disturbing The Peace during an interview with DJBooth.net. He stated:

The decision to leave [the label] was totally mine. I sat down with Ludacris and Chaka Zulu, and I explained to them that it was time for me to venture out on my own. They had no problem with it; they are cool with it, no beef at all.

Despite Special Occasion's gold certification, Valentino was reportedly frustrated with the album's delays and less than expected sales, culminating in his decision to leave the labels.[12] Although business ties have been severed, Valentino maintains positive relationships with CEO Chaka Zulu, Ludacris and the DTP/Def Jam staff. Nearly the end of 2008 the label released Ludacris' sixth album Theater of the Mind, the album spawned three singles the first official single was "What Them Girls Like", "co-starring" Chris Brown & Sean Garrett. The single peaked at #33 on the Billboard Hot 100. The second official single was "One More Drink", "co-starring" T-Pain, peaking at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100. The third single was "Nasty Girl", "co-starring" Plies. Though the album was well received by music critics, it debuted at number five on the Billboard 200, selling 214,000 copies in its first week. It was his first album since 2001's Word of Mouf to not reach number-one status, and his lowest charting album since his debut. To date, the album has sold about 671,000 copies, achieving a gold certification.[7]

In 2009 the label released Willy Northpole's debut album Tha Connect. The album's first single was "Body Marked Up" and second "#1 Side Chick" featuring Bobby Valentino. The album's first week sales were 2,896. As of October 18, 2009 the album has 7,000 record sales. The album reviews were positive for a debut album, but at the same time, it was bashed for providing few features. Ludacris was supposed to be on his album, but the track he was to collaborate on did not clear in time for the album release date. Poor sales for the album were blamed on a lack of promotion and the death of Michael Jackson two days after the release of the album.[13] By late 2009 the label released Playaz Circle's second album Flight 360: The Takeoff. It spawned five singles "Stupid", "Hold Up", "Can't Remember", "Yeah We Gettin' Rich", and "Big Dawg". The album debuted at #74 on the Billboard 200, selling 8,000 copies. As of December 2009 the album has currently sold 31,000. That same year the label signed new talent, Rudy Currence, rap group B.X.C., rap group TK N CA$H, and Lil Scrappy who left Lil Jon's BME Recordings.[14][15] Also that same year Ludacris and Shawnna confirmed that they would release a collaboration album together titled Battle of the Sexes, set for Summer 2009, but Shawnna reportedly split from the label later that year and signed to T-Pain's Nappy Boy Entertainment. Then it was later reported that Shawnna was removed from the album and became a solo album by Ludacris with guest appearances.[16]


Ludacris' seventh album Battle of the Sexes was released on March 9, 2010. Originally tagged as a collaboration album by Ludacris and Shawnna, it became a solo album by Ludacris with guest appearances after Shawnna was cut from the album for unknown reasons.[16][17] Despite the mixed to negative reviews surrounding the album, it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 upon its release making this his 4th number-one album in a row.[18] The album has currently spawned three singles; "How Low", "My Chick Bad" and "Sex Room". On November 2, 2011 it was announced that Lil Scrappy had parted ways with the label.[19]
