Fondle 'Em Records

"Bobbito Garcia's Fondle 'Em label is indie all the way, and is also one of the most consistently compelling underground hip-hop labels you'll find. And although it still isn't sending out any promos, true heads will want to buy every new release on the label, since there hasn't been a bum one yet. Fondle 'Em started out partly as a gag with the now-infamous EP put out by the Cenobites (a collaboration between Kool Keith and Godfather Don, originally made as promos for Garcia's radio show) back in 1995, but Garcia's impeccable, yet twisted, taste and underground connections through his 'Stretch & Bobbito' show on New York City's WKCR allow him to explore New York's fertile hip-hop underbelly, and document it on wax." - Brian Coleman, CMJ

"Is it me or was 1996 another terrible year for hip-hop?? If it wasn't for Dr. Octagon, Company Flow and the entire Fondle 'Em roster I would have been extremely bored." - Daniel Ladd, THE VINYL EXCHANGE

"Bobbito's label was the hip-hop revelation of '96, releasing five must-have records. What holds them together? Well-executed, unusual ideas, emotion and fat beats. The East Coast sound as it should be, rather than as it is" - TRACE

"...this could just be one of the most significant indie labels in '97. Founded and owned by one of hip-hop's most renowned B-Boys, Bobbito Garcia, Fondle 'Em has the air of a true independent" - URB
