Loud Records is a record label founded by Steve Rifkind and Rich Isaacson in 1991.


Loud is a hip hop label which has released material by acts such as Wu-Tang Clan, Big Punisher, Mobb Deep, Krayzie Bone, The Beatnuts, M.O.P., Tha Alkaholiks, Pete Rock, Lil' Flip, Three 6 Mafia, Project Pat, Xzibit, Twista, Dead Prez, The Dwellas and The X-Ecutioners. The label also released thrash metal band Megadeth's deluxe and remastered debut album Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good! in 2002.

The label was originally distributed by Zoo Entertainment. It was later distributed by RCA Records until 1999 when distribution moved over to Columbia Records. It shut down in 2002.

In June 2007, Sony Music resurrected this label, after which Rifkind would buy it back, making it a subsidiary of SRC. His first act after re-gaining the label was, as he did fifteen years earlier, signing the Wu-Tang Clan.

On July 29, 2012, Steve Rifkind announced that he was leaving Universal Records on September 1, 2012. That same day saw the closing of both SRC and Loud labels, and all artists on each label having either left Republic/Universal or transferred to the same label.
