1. Various - Heavy Rotation volume 1
2. Sivion - Spring of the Songbird
4. Braille - Box Of Rhymes (Japan)
5. Braille - Box Of Rhymes (vinyl single)
6. Surreal - Future Classic

Mixtapes
On March 26th, 2007 it was announced that every month the label will release an exclusive mixtape or instrumental project from Hiphop Is Music affiliated artists. Most of these releases are limited to 100 or 200 copies only.
The first mixtape is Theory Hazit's mixtape ?The Special Education of Theory Hazit? (March 2007).
The CD's are only for sale at Hiphopismusic.com.

Distribution
The album "Extra Credit" of Theory Hazit (May 2007) is the first HipHop Is Music record to receive an "international" release, through a partnership with GrooveAttack for Europe, the United States and Canada. The label has also partnered with companies in Japan (River City) and South Africa to assure that this album gets good promotion and distribution in those territories.

The IV
For Braille's fourth album "The IV" (2008) the label HipHop Is Music joins forces with Syntax Records/Koch Distribution for the North America release of the album. Other partnerships are P-Vine (Japan), CVibes (Australia) and Fat City (UK/Europe).
