The Resource Music Group LLC is a digital music record label based in Atlanta, GA. An independent record company that specializes in rap & hip-hop music. Founded in 2001, the label has represented the cutting-edge of independent hip-hop music for more than 20 years. Having experienced several successful releases in the 90’s & 2000’s and prior to the dynamic shift in the music industry, the label became inactive to restructure the brand to properly fit its business model into the digital music space.
Essentially, this move enabled the music label to adequately support the digital ecosystem in today’s music streaming industry. The artist roster downsized with the ‘redesign’ of its organizational structure and relaunch of new business partnerships in January 2024. The company’s mission is to build an artist roster and music catalog of one million streamed songs, one song at a time. Major digital music platforms our artists are streaming on include Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, YouTube Music, and more.
