I mean... Retropolitan's only a year and a half old and their major releases since then include:
Quelle Chris - Innocent Country 2 Marlowe - Marlowe 2 Apollo Brown and Che Noir - As God Intended Apollo Brown - Sincerely, Detroit Homeboy Sandman - Dusty L'Orange and Jeremiah Jae - Complicate Your Life with Violence Joell Ortiz & KXNG Crooked - H.A.R.D.
(I'm sure I'm missing some)
Plus branching out into some new more r&b-ish terrain with: Seba Kaapstad - Konke Namir Blade - Aphelion's Traveling Circus
None of those are bad to my ears and a few are really good to great. I'd say that's a pretty good track record.
