Default Cash Money Records vs. No Limit Records

So both of these labels were huge in the late 90s and both dynasties made millions off a constant stream of new album releases. But which one was better?

Beats by the Pound made most of the beats for No Limit albums while Mannie Fresh made most of the beats for Cash Money albums. Cash Money had Juvenile, Turk, Wayne, and B.G. No Limit had guys like Master P, Mystikal, C-Murder, Silkk The Shocker, and Mia X. (not to mention Snoop Dogg)

Many hip-hop heads will tell you that the rappers on both labels were for the most part sub-par but I don't know, I think some of these guys were really talented on the mic. There were a lot of great albums released by both labels. Some of my favorites from Cash Money include Juveniles "400 Degreez" and "Tha G-Code", B.G.'s "Chopper City In The Ghetto" and "Checkmate", Lil Wayne's "Lights Out" and the last two Hot Boys albums. My favorites from No Limit include Master P's "Ghetto D", TRU's "Tru 2 Da Game", Mystikal's "Unpredictable", and C-Murder's "Life or Death". Personally, I think I enjoy more albums from Cash Money but No Limit definitely had more talent within them. What do you guys think?

No Limit





Cash Money

Interesting topic here.
I remember being in high school and hearing all the rage behind No limit Records. Which, they found popularity initially, before Cash Money. There were so many damn albums and dime-a-dozen rappers on No limit, that was probably the main weakness. At the core, they had Master P and his brothers, Mystical, and so on. I heard several albums, and there were simply too many tracks. Some ran into the 20's. Just filler. I was liked their interesting album art though. Which Cash Money rode that wave into their album art.
Cash Money had more of a centralized core, Juve, Wanye, B.G....the Hot Boys. And look at these guys now, for the most part...they are still dropping albums...

Where the hell are the No Limit Soldiers...? Retired, mostly.

Actually, I really like that one, I like TRU's "Tru 2 da Game", I really like Juvenile's "400 Degreez" and "G-Code", also like B.G.'s "Chopper City in the Ghetto".

Damn, No Limit was straight up trash but to be honest I didn't bother to listen any of their albums past the singles that were given airplay during that time. I remember Silk The Shocker having the amazing ability of never being able to stay on beat no matter which song he was on. I couldn't help but piss myself laughing.

I may go through some of their albums and torture myself to see if I find a gem or two this weekend but I don't know if it'll be worth it.

I was more into the Ruff Ryders during that period of time. DMX, The Lox which is Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch , Eve.

lol @ the Silkk comment. That dude definitely was a weak link. I think No Limit definitely has some solid albums, check on Mystikal's "Unpredictable" and C-Murder's "Life or Death".

I'm surprised there's no votes for No Limit. Those guys had the game on lock in the late 90s. (other than Cash Money of course) Plus, there were simply more MCs in No Limit.
