Being the voice of a whole city is no easy task. Whether it’s a team like State Property representing Philly, The Geto Boys representing Houston or what No Limit & Cash Money were to New Orleans, the sound and lyrics are something that creates the identity of that region for lasting times.
Enter OT (Overtime) records, an independent Record Label based in Wilmington, Delaware. CEO Matty Gates and his roster include Bobby Dime$, Chuck50, Clark Bar, Keena, Sap, 5th Ward, DjBran and flagship artist Shizz Nitty.
