About SCR

Through a deep love of noodle bowls and records, we decided that there was too much great music going unnoticed, both new and old. With roots firmly planted in New Orleans, and an interest in celebrating good music everywhere, we decided to do something about it. Voila a label is born. Sinking City Records is our attempt to showcase music that moves us in hopes that it moves you too.

Out Now on Sinking City/Urban Unrest Records

SCR-014 BLACKBIRD & SEPROCK Lifetime b/w Hustler

When I first met Seprock he gave this tape of his beats and raps by Blackbird. Lifetime got a lot of play, and then the whole tape. Since then Sinking City released a double LP of some of Seprock beats. He is both prolific and visionary, and these tracks feature his guitar playing and production paired with Blackbirds OG tales of New Orleans streets. Blackbird ghost wrote for other rappers back in the day, but these are his first tracks featuring his vocals on wax.

SCR-013 RICKY B Shake It Fo Ya Hood (Street) b/w Shake It Fo Ya Hood (Clean)

Shake It Fo Ya Hood is the track that launched Urban Unrest/Sinking City Records back in 2013. Originally released in 1994, it is a certified classic. It features slightly different lyrics on the clean and dirty versions so you can fight with your friends about which one is better.

SCR-012 ZE11A – 94 ft. Mannie Fresh, Bonka, Chedda b/w Out Here ft. Anderson.Paak, L.G., Chels

New Orleans next great super producer Ze11a dropped his self released full length, 4What4U, earlier this year with features from many of New Orleans strongest. He scored the Bally Animals documentary coming out in fall 2018, and has many big things in store. These tracks were two of our favorites off the full length, which is available on all digital platforms. 94 features the legend Mannie Fresh (alongside Bonka and Chedda) talking about 1994 when New Orleans rap was just getting primed to take over the world and Out Here features L.G. and Chels alongside Anderson.Paak, who needs no introduction!

SCR-011 PACO TROXCLAIR Duffy (Street) b/w Duffy (Clean)

Produced by legends KLC & Full Pack, Paco Troxclair dropped a huge track that hits hard and mixes the now with classic New Orleans production. Check the video to see Sunday second line vibes in the Calliope Projects. Digital and full length Where We From out now on all digital platforms.
