Creative Control (disclaimer)
In the past, We have never had an issue with profane or taboo subject matter. In addition we have never released a record with an Explicit Lyric or content rating. This is due to many reasons, one being the skill level of the personal we get down with needs no such "SENSATIONALISM". Two, the moral character or fiber of our releases tend to challenge the mind body and soul in a positive manner. We do keep cursing at a minimal and tend to keep bashing at a minimal or at least clever.
No records will be placed that do not maintain the above mentioned character on each release. All Cd and digital artwork are the responsibility of the label, artist or publisher. Any changes in title(s), artwork or songs after manufacturing will be incured by the artist, label or publisher. Resulting in a new run of 50 units.
Artist, Label Or publisher will maintain 100% publishing and rights to each record at the conclusion of the agreement.
