HYPED INTERNATIONAL RECORDS
An independent American owned Record Label & Production Company est. 1991 in Detroit, Michigan.
Many labels come and go just like the one-hit wonders do, but we've been lucky enough to witness our evolution from the analog days of reels and eight tracks. For over four decades we've cut and commissioned thousands of records in nearly every genre of music, the sum of which represents 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 underground, independent, rising and Grammy® winning artists alike.
A few years ago we launched Hyped Up Live Sessions, a concert performance series & music discovery platform designed to celebrate independent artists. Since then we've welcomed over 100 artists and bands to our HQ where our team has dedicated countless hours producing and curating aesthetically immersive programming, supporting the creative community, partnering with local organizations, and raising funds for pandemic relief, with recent collabs including the 50th Annual Hash Bash, Lighthouse LIVE & Detroit Bass Day.
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 musician, songwriter, composer, record producer and music exec most regarded for his work with Death Row Records (Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Dr. Dre), G Funk Entertainment (Warren G, Twinz, Dove Shack), R&B/Soul groups The Dramatics and Five Special, 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.
