Product Notes

- Barely adv. (bef 12c) 1: in a meager manner: PLAINLY (a barely furnished room) 2: SCARCELY, HARDLY (not enough money to cover expenses) - Broke adj.: PENNILESS It's The Great American Way...when you see an opportunity to get ahead and at the same time see a chance to pursue what you believe will make you happy, then why not do it? Such is the case with Alvin Devoe Jr. The CEO of Barely Broke Records whom since the late 90's has pursued his interest in owning his own record label. Through that business, the business of music Alvin aka Al Deezay hopes to establish his company in such a way that it showcases the uniqueness of what the Austin, Texas Rap and Hip-Hop scene have to offer to the entire music industry. He at the same time wants to always stay mindful that one wrong move and he can easily go back to being barely broke. It was late 1996 when Alvin first recognized the talents of a friend that he had known since childhood. He one day listened to Button and his group 30/30 lyrically deliver the words of a song they had written. Alvin was so impressed with Button's talents that it helped to increase Alvin's interest in getting into the music business. Even though an additional two years would pass in which Button spent time on lock down, Alvin still knew he wanted to start a label and one day work with Button. So when Button was free, he became the first artist on the Barely Broke Record Label. While trying to work with Button different challenges continued to present themselves which in turn caused more time to pass before Button could put together a solo album. During this period other artists were brought into the organization. So as a result, instead of the first album being a solo project featuring Button, it developed into a compilation of music featuring the entire roster of artist on the label. The first album is titled 'Barely Broke Records presents the Barely Broke.
