They also released several compilation albums, most notably the "Soundbombing" trilogy and "Lyricist Lounge" series. During the mid to late '90s, Rawkus became a dominant label in the underground hip hop scene, producing a string of gold albums and a platinum album with Mos Def's Black On Both Sides.
