Man Bites Dog started, like many labels, in the home of someone who wanted to do more for the music dearest to their heart. For founder R.M.L., it was about doing more of those who still shout « real hip hop » in Virginia. The label began in Northern Virginia and since its inception has grown out of the crib and into a commercial space that includes an in-house studio where its artists can work within a budget that’s good for the label and the artist. No longer a locals only label, Man Bites Dog’s roster includes Copywrite, Esoteric, Harry Fraud, Killah Priest, Wais P, Vast Aire, and recently signed Roc Marciano.

Man Bites Dog
On the idea of starting a label

In high school I had fashioned myself as an MC and a DJ. I had Gemini PT 2000’s and a Gemini 626 mixer. I was living in Germany at the time, had a high school graduating class of around 50 so I was one of the only rappers and the only white rapper in the school. Years before I had been in punk bands, playing guitar and screaming. Music was just something that was always in my life, shit I even played the trombone & violin in elementary school. Back in late 2005 I was finding myself around hip hop again and it seemed like there was need for it in my area of Northern VA. There were no hip hop labels releasing anything for the locals at the time. Quickly we moved out of the locals only mentality.

On the meaning in the label name Man Bites Dog

Well it’s a term used in media for the idea of sensationalism. So if a dog bites a man its not a newsworthy story however a man biting a dog makes its way to page one. We are different like that. Our music is page one worthy.
