Cellblock Records was an Oakland, CA-based record label in the mid-90’s which boasted a collection of high-powered artists like Rappin’ Ron & Ant Diddley Dog of the Bad N-Fluenz click, Mr. ILL, FM Blue and others. The label had deep connections with Too Short’s imprint Dangerous Music as the artists and producers off the labels often collaborated with each other.
Too Short recently released some Cellblock’s catalog in a Greatest Hits format with songs like the original version of “I Can’t Turn Back” featuring 2Pac & Spice 1, “Flossn” by Father Dom, “Deep Shit” by Bad N-Fluenz, “Crooked” with FM Blue, and “Am I Dreaming” from the late MC Breed. The collection also features production from Ant Banks, Black Jack, Tone Capone, and Terry T to name a few.
There are only 300 copies of the Bad N-Fluenz vinyl album available. You can order your copy here
