Russell Simmons (founder of Def Jam Records)

Hip Hop originated in New York during the 1970s, Russell Simmons ( along with wealthy punk rocker Rick Rubin were the first pioneers of the hip hop music genre to create a record label empire; Def Jam records.  Def Jam introduced the world to legendary artists such as RUN DMC, LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys in the 1980s which led to immediate success, turning Def Jam Records into the biggest record label in Hip Hop during this time period.  In today’s world Russell Simmons is more interested in yoga and occupying Wall Street rather than breaking the next big artist.  Therefore the door has opened for new moguls to takeover the throne and create empires for the 2012 generation.   GWOP Magazine staff has put together a list of the top Hip Hop/Rap Record labels for 2012.  Nas said ‘Hip Hop was dead in 2006’, well these labels are destined to prove that the music genre has only suffered a heart attack and there is no need to panic.  Checkout the full list after the jump.

FAME: Drake will be in stores January 2012. The comic book’s written by Marc Shapiro, featuring the art of Mike J.C. and a cover by Joe Phillips. Reported by MTV Geek, Shapiro said that in the course of doing the research for “FAME: Drake” he found the Canadian pop singer to be “refreshingly real and down to earth”

“What makes Drake such a distinctive creative personality is that he’s not just one thing. His music encompasses hip-hop, rap, old style rhythm and blues, soul and pop. When was the last time you heard of a celebrity blowing off a lucrative tour to be at his mother’s side during her stay in the hospital? Drake did just that. You could die of old age waiting to find somebody who has as much soul, creatively and as a human being, as Drake.”

A comic book biography of hip hop star Aubrey Graham a.k.a “Drake” will be available in stores starting January 2012. FAME: Drake will trace the life of Drake from his start in TV’s Degrassi: The Next Generation to his fateful decision to go by his middle name, Drake, and subsequently receive mega stardom as a musician.

Hip-hop history was made as Jay-Z and Eminem co-headlined the Motor City’s Comerica Park on Thursday night (September 2), the first of two shows on consecutive nights.

While Jay’s high-grossing touring schedule helped him to top this year’s Forbes’ “Hip-Hop Cash King” list, Eminem took a much-needed sabbatical to deal with plenty of personal issues. Now beyond his darkest hour, Em had one of his brightest moments ever onstage. Not only did he gift his hometown with a seemingly endless string of hits, he pulled off some major surprises. After D12, 50 Cent and the G-Unit — acts that fans likely expected — came out for performances with Em, Slim Shady pulled off a shocker. Dr. Dre came out, first stunning the people then delighting them with smashes.
