Enjoy Records was a record label owned and operated by Bobby Robinson from 1962[1] through the mid-1980s, and was run out of his record shop at 125th Street and 8th Ave. in Harlem. Starting with blues, R&B, and rock and roll, the label recorded many of the original old-school hip hop groups and MCs, including Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, the Funky 4+1, Spoonie Gee, and the Treacherous Three, beginning in 1979.[2] The label closed down in 1987, although Robinson's shop remained opened.
