Kandy Paint Records Pays Homage To Da Legendary “Suave House Records”

 

Suave House Records

 

Suave House Records, better known The Legendary Suave House, is a record label located in Houston, Texas founded by Tony Draper. The label was founded in 1990 when Draper was sixteen years old.[1] In its early incarnation, Suave House originally went by the name Suave Records for a couple of years.[2] In 1995, the label inked a distribution deal with Relativity Records and saw their biggest successes in that partnership.[3]

In 1997, Suave House switched distributors from Relativity to Universal Records.[4] The label’s first release under new distribution was MJG’s solo debut No More Glory. By 2000, the company went back to its original status as an independent record label.

In 2007, Suave House Records also released an album from Def Jam’s recording artist Rick Ross (rapper) titled Rise to Power. The album was composed of older songs from Rick Ross during his time at Suave House. Some tracks were remixed and produced by current Suave House’s producer Jiggolo.

In April 2008, Suave House signed a joint venture deal with Koch.[5] The label’s first release under the partnership was an Eightball & MJG Greatest Hits album titled We Are the South. The label plans on releasing upcoming albums from Jiggolo and Gillie Da Kid.

Suave House Records recording artist/producer Jiggolo (Jigg) is feature on Ice Cube’s single “I Rep That West” from his upcoming album “I Am the West”. Jiggolo also produced the track.

In a March 2006 interview with XXL, Suave House CEO Tony Draper was asked about the vision of Suave House:

Why do you think Suave House II can compete in this day and age?

“Because I believe that half of the niggas that you see out right now got their game from me. When Suave was doing their thing there was no Cash Money or No Limit. I respect what they’ve done. But a lot of niggas ain’t real because they ain’t paying respect. I knew the movement was big, my shit was solid. Because the only one thing that consumers know is that they love the product. They don’t know that there is a nigga that’s making them make songs like that. I was a family type nigga, we used to sit in the house making the shit from scratch. When the code was violated, that’s when the music started changing (XXL Staff Member, 2006).
