The label’s name, which is a nod to the artist’s style of music, stands for Anderson .Paak Empire.  His tradition is to raise the bar, and he believes that APESHIT INC.’s artists will rely on their raw talent rather than gimmicks or viral marketing.

The label will be based in Los Angeles and in the upcoming months, APESHIT INC. will announce its first signings and releases.
