Giant Single: Profile Records Rap Anthology

Profile’s two young founders were products of the disco boom. Cory Robbins and Steve Plotnicki, both Jewish New Yorkers in their 20s, first met in 1979 when Robbins released a Plotnicki-penned disco song, “Love Insurance,” on Panorama, a small imprint that Robbins ran for MCA Music Publishing. The idea behind Profile Records which Robbins and Plotnicki launched in May 1981 with a ,000 loan from their parents was to release 12-inch dance singles. In hindsight, it might not have been the best business plan for the post-disco apocalypse. Profile s first single, a disco record by British TV star Grace Kennedy, was an all-American flop. But over the course of the next twenty years, with signings like Run DMC, Dana Dane, Rob Base & D.J. EZ Rock, Poor Righteous Teachers, Profile Records would become one of the biggest & most respected hip hop labels in the world.
