In May, ARC THE FINGER RECORDS celebrated its fourth anniversary. Its dedication to quality hip-hop and sound business practices ensures plenty more birthdays to come. A refreshingly real alternative to ATLs love for snappin-and-rappin, the label continues expanding its highly anticipated A3C Independent Hip-Hop Festival, scheduling another for April 2007. With label leaders like Psyche Origami, a national release from Intellekt and Dirty Digits coming this month, a showcase of ATF artists at Atlantis Music Conference, and co-production of shows like Jurassic 5, the Boot Camp Clik and DJ Krush, Arc the Finger is constantly on (see its blog, ConstantlyOn.com), and the true heads are so glad it is.
