Anticon Label Sampler: 1999-2004 is a compilation album released by American hip hop record label Anticon in 2004. It peaked at number 25 on CMJ's Hip Hop chart.[6]

Critical reception

Marisa Brown of AllMusic gave the album 3.5 stars out of 5, saying: "Even though most of the songs are under three minutes, there isn't much superfluous filler to weigh down the record."[2] Susanna Bolle of XLR8R said: "For those not already familiar with Anticon, this budget-priced compilation provides an excellent primer, collecting tracks by the label's extended stable of artists, from the fantastic, absurdist rhymes of Themselves to the acerbic rants of Sole."[5]
