In 2002, a pair of childhood friends with talent, desire and a dream started Long Doe Records, in South Minneapolis. Co-CEO’s Tony Bones & Big Wiz (aka Nic Swisher) proceeded to roll up their sleeves and get BUSY. Writing & producing music, directing countless videos, and promoting themselves. Being a fully self contained unit, LDR soon began to put a mark on the Twin Cities Hip Hop scene. They have worked with many a familiar name in the industry: Twista, Sadat X (Brand Nubian), Devin The Dude, Andre the Giant (Showbiz & A.G.), Atmosphere, Fat Joe’s Terror Squad, Talib Kweli and Alchemist to name a few.
