Control Freaq

In 2005, Badu founded Control Freaq Records. Not a typical label, the imprint allowed its artists to use Badu's brand as a platform to grow artistically without physical contracts. Control Freaq's most notable artist, Jay Electronica, is a gifted MC who works closely with Just Blaze and has received co-signs by Diddy, Nas, Jay Z and Mos Def among others.
