Tumor Records is a worldwide connected Hip Hop label, founded in 2006 by Tumor aka Two More and based in Basel, Switzerland. Their provocative name means two things: On one hand, there is the Tumor in the head which forces the audience to listen to their music again and again like an earworm. On the other hand Two More stands for the producing team, which is working on many different projects at the same time.
