Hyped International Records
An independent American owned record label and production company established 1991 in Detroit, MI.
Many labels come and go just like one-hit wonders, but we've been lucky enough to witness our evolution all the way from the analog days of reel to reels and eight track tapes. For over four decades we've cut and commissioned thousands of records comprising nearly every genre of music, the sum total of which is an incredible repository of sonic artifacts we refer to simply as "The Vault". Our distinguished catalogues are home to a unique repertoire of award-winning songs that represent the works of independent, rising & Grammy® winning artists alike.
In 2018 we launched the Hyped Up Live Sessions, a concert performance series & music discovery platform. As Michigan's premiere livestream brand, we've welcomed over 50 artists and bands to our HQ in the Russell Industrial Center where our fierce team has dedicated countless hours producing and curating aesthetically immersive programming, and supporting the creative community in eliminating barriers to artistic visibility; while partnering with amazing local organizations to produce original content and raise funds for COVID-19 relief, with recent collabs including the 50th Annual Hash Bash, Lighthouse LIVE & Detroit Bass Day 2020.
Our company was founded by master scale bass musician Edward A. Green, professionally known as Tony Green a/k/a T. Money Green, a multi-platinum RIAA award-winning and Grammy® nominated songwriter, composer and record producer most regarded for his work with Death Row Records (Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Dr. Dre), G Funk Entertainment (Warren G), R&B/Soul group The Dramatics, and funkmaster George Clinton. His original compositions have been sampled by Erykah Badu, Lalah Hathaway, Gang Starr, Tupac, Master P, The Ruff Ryders, The Game, Ice Cube and more. View some of T. Money's credits here, which include many of hip-hop's biggest records of all time.
