Hollywood BASIC

Hollywood BASIC was Disney's short-lived hip hop label, run by Dave Funkenklein and existing between 1990 and 1995. It was the first label to record DJ Shadow, releasing his "Lesson 4" (a reference to Double Dee and Steinski) as the b-side to a 1991 single by Lifers' Group, a hip hop group comprised of ex-convicts. It also released his "Legitimate Mix" on the b-side to a single by Zimbabwe Legit in 1992. [Peter Shapiro, "Rough Guide to Hip-Hop", 2nd ed., Rough Guides: London, 2000 (p. 102).] Other notable releases came from Organized Confusion, whose challenging second album "" (1994) is widely acclaimed. [Peter Shapiro, "Rough Guide to Hip-Hop", 2nd ed., Rough Guides: London, 2000 (p. 291).] The label was also home to Charizma and Peanut Butter Wolf, though following the shooting and killing of Charizma in 1993, the music the duo recorded for it was not released. This would later inspire Peanut Butter Wolf to found Stones Throw Records in order to make this music available. [Peter Shapiro, "Rough Guide to Hip-Hop", 2nd ed., Rough Guides: London, 2000 (pp. 349–351).]
