For years the Chicago musical
landscape has been missing one essential part, a true record label that
can produce quality musical products.
Triplett Records is headed by the
industrious Leon Triplett, a man who is no stranger to the music
industry. Mentored by legends like Curtis Mayfeild, Jerry Butler, Eddie
Thomas and Carl Davis, he along with his brother Levi made up the
successful duo called the Triplett Twins, well known for their song Get It.
Today, Triplett Records is now
widening its scope with new music from different genre. Most recently
the company has released two new singles by Chicago rapper K.O.K, It is What It Is and ChIraq. Lets not forget Leon’s new single Motown, heartfelt track about the beloved city and record company Motown.
