    Psycho+Logical-Records was started Nov. 1999, and has been in business for over 12 years, currently being distributed by Fontana/Universal. Necro started the label because he needed an outlet to release his own music, as everyone was telling him noone wanted to sign white rappers at the time. Master P & No Limit's success contributed to Necro having the fire to take those brave first steps into indie world and every single record Necro has released has been on his own label ever since. The fanbase Necro has now is worldwide with loyal "Necromaniacs" in every country. PLR has released over 30+ releases in 12 years all quality records and never being about quantity. Not only has PLR released every Necro record, but it was responsible for the debut albums of ILL Bill, Sabac Red, Mr. Hyde, as well as other groups & comp records, including mix cds. In 2012 PLR is set to release a collaboration album between Necro & the Legendary Kool G Rap, the group is called, The Godfathers. This is the first time KGR has done an entire album with another rapper, and Necro is producing the entire project himself, in fact, every beat released on Psycho+Logical- has been produced by Necro since day one, no outside production allowed. Necro is a big fan of business legends like Sam Walton, Ray Krok, etc. and it took years for these businesses to grow and become what they are known as today. PLR is just starting to get warmed up, and has made so many mistakes that success is right around the corner for this indie label still going strong after 12 years. Psycho+Logical-Records where it's Logical- to be a Psycho+
