About Us

The Sound Of Brooklyn (TSOB) Records is a state-of-the-art recording studio and independent record label based in East New York Brooklyn, New York. More than just simply another upstart independent record label, TSOB was created at the dawn of the new Millennium as a vessel for communicating ideas and promoting careers for urban youth in the $15.0 billion global music industry, behind the scenes as well as in front of a microphone. TSOB seeks to transmit a fresh and exhilarating sound with a global reach. TSOB is working to create a new musical dynasty built in conjunction with talented and visionary young men and women in Brooklyn USA.

With the expanding influence of Hip-Hop/Rap within the music, fashion, sports, advertising, radio, film and television industries, and the tradition of famous chart topping rappers like the late Notorious B.I.G. (RIP), Jay-Z, Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, AZ, MC Lyte, Fabolous, the Beastie Boys and the late “Old Dirty Bastard” (RIP) coming “STRAIGHT OUTTA BROOKLYN,” it’s no wonder that all over the globe there is a universal response to the frequently asked question, “IS BROOKLYN IN THE HOUSE? HELL YEAH!” It is undeniable that “BROOKLYNITES” presence is felt near and far.

TSOB pays tribute to BROOKLYN’S FINEST. They Got Now. TSOB IS WHAT’S NEXT!
