Zapper Records was founded by Zapper, a legendary street rapper from Clay Ave in the South Bronx. Zapper made a name for himself in the 1980's and never gave up his passion for Hip Hop music. He returned to the music in the early 2000's just to discover that it truly is a business. However, Zapper decided that he would not exploit starving artists, which inspired him to invest in his dream by building his own studio and starting his own label. He prefers to allow the artist to control his own vision rather be controlled.
Zapper has seen the beginning of this art form that would become known as Hip Hop from its birth in the Bronx. Zapper himself has performed with Slick Rick in 55 Park in the Bronx, KRS one at 371 in the BX, Doug E Fresh & Cut Master D.C. at Latin Quarter in Manhattan.
