In 2001 Rapster Records started focussing on Urban, Soul and HipHop. Since then, Rapster has been releasing records by some of the HipHop & Soul scene’s most impressive artists. DJ Jazzy Jeff, Pete Rock and Roy Ayers are just some of the names on the labels’ fine roster. Always looking for opportunities to work with partners of excellence and to explore new possibilities and styles, Rapster forged an alliance with UK based soul aficionado Peter Adarkwah whose label BBE has been dealing in diverse, eclectic sounds covering many genres from old scratchy Brazilian grooves through 70's funk via jazz fusion and new hip hop for over a decade. And with special projects such as the Exit Music “Songs with Radio Heads” compilation or the Kings of… series (featuring Masters at Work, RZA, Gilles Peterson and many more), as well as the Beat Generation albums.
