The Geto Boys were the label's first nationally popular act, while Devin the Dude, whom The New York Times called "a brilliant oddball with a spaced-out flow," and whose contract ended in 2008, was, for 15 years, the label's longest-running act. On August 22, 2013, Rap-A-Lot announced that it recently signed a distribution deal with RED. Artists currently on its roster include Z-Ro and Bun B among others. (en)
