Reel Life Productions, also known as Gothom Records, is a Detroit rap label formed in 1990 by James H. Smith and his younger brother, rapper Esham.

Pretty much dormant now, the Gothom Inc. YouTube channel is mostly used to lob Take Thats at Esham's fans and other rappers.

Current RLP artists:

  • Esham
  • Daniel Jordan
  • Chupacabra

Former RLP artists:


RLP includes examples of these tropes:

  • Detroit: Esham and many of the label's artists.
  • Gangsta Rap
  • Horrorcore
  • Juggalo: Esham has a love/hate relationship with this culture (see that page for more information).
    • 20 Dead Flower Children, who were signed to Gothom/Overcore around 1997-1999.
    • Esham signed the "Juggalette" rapper Chupacabra in an attempt to get on the good side of that fanbase. It didn't work.
  • Nu Metal: 20 Dead Flower Children
  • Psychedelic Rap
  • Rap Metal: The Workhorse Movement
