Epik High apparently is in the middle of establishing their very own hip hop label! This is being done with the full support of YG Entertainment and Yang Hyun Suk, who have appointed Tablo to be at the helm of this new sub-label. According to a report by Osen, Yang Hyun Suk is stated to have carried a regretful heart for being unable to keep all of the singers and musician hopefuls in the past, who applied to YG Entertainment under hip hop.

Due to this dilemma, he has tasked Epik High, who has the most knowledge regarding the underground hip hop scene as well as the tradition of hip hop for YG Entertainment. They were told to establish a new label, which is to be supported behind the scenes by YG Entertainment.

Tablo was selected to be the head of this new label since he not only understands the underground scene, but also is a multi-talented hip hop musician who has the ability to write, compose, and play instruments as well as rapping and singing.

Yang Hyun Suk stated, "Whether it was 1TYM or Jinusean, YG's roots have always been with hip hop. YG is indebted to all those on this land who pursue hip hop, and also feel gratitude towards them. We will be doing our best to support this new hip hop label so that it will become a good opportunity to those doing underground hip hop."

Tablo has further confirmed the news when he mentioned, "I'm doing a lot of producing for YG acts, our label's acts. We're also developing a new label, a sub-label. I think we're going to be busy with that...just a lot of things going on. I'm publishing a new book. Busy!"
