West Coast Plantation Records was founded in the early 90's. The companies origin steams from a group of 4 MC'S dwelling the streets of Long Beach. They went by the name of "BLACK POOL". BLACK POOL members list consist of Darell ( MAC KOOL, aka BOOL AID) Abner, Quincy ( L BONE aka L BLACK) Turner, Lemarc ( KOKO aka COOLPOPPABELL) Harris and Michael ( MIKE B) Bridgewater.
In the pursuit of a record deal, like many other of their fellow city mates, BLACK POOL wrote and recorded daily; polishing the skill to be the elite group not only in such a talent driven city as Long Beach, but the record industry in general. They gained notiriaty from peers of theirs and of others in sourounding cities( Compton, Carson, Wilmington,) by ( battle rapping) from location to location. With the industries eyes on the small, but big city in California,(The LBC) due to the success of DOMINO, SNOOP DOGG, WARREN G AND NATE DOGG ( rip) BLACK POOL had many opportunities to secure a record deal.
But the business aspect of the "MUSIC BUSINESS" indeed was not in favor of a reasonable deal. In the midst of landing a record deal, which showed to be difficult if one wanted a fair deal, "BLACK POOL" brainstormed and came up with thought of having they our records label. They were going to do it independently, investing into self as DR DRE for DEATH ROW, P DIDDY for BAD BOY, MASTER P for NO LIMIT.
The group choose the name "WEST COAST PLANTATION RECORDS". Unfortunately the group separated due to one of the members incarceration. However, this incident did not hinder as much as it helped. Michael ( MIKE B) Bridgewater, passionately driven and motivated, continued to strive towards his calling as an entertainer and entreprenuer.
Today WEST COAST PLANTATION RECORDS & PLANTATION ENTERTAINMENT is the home of talent. We are the fastest growing company in the world! We will continue to provide quality entertainment as well as other PLANTATION merchandise and products affiliated with our company for your enjoyment.
