I Grade Records was founded in St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands during early 2001 by Laurent "Tippy I" Alfred along with partner Kenyatta Itola. The label's primary mission is to produce and release the highest quality reggae music emanating from St. Croix and the US Virgin Islands. Over the course of several highly acclaimed releases, I Grade has developed a unique musical identity that is undeniably roots, but freely influenced by hip hop, jazz, soul and other musical genres, forming a sound that is both ancient and modern. Having released several powerful debut albums, I Grade Records is known for its keen ear for new voices that need to be heard.  As a crucial part of the roots music movement in the VI, I Grade is committed to "spreading musical ises and healing, from St. Croix to across the world."

Nemozian Rasta was the 2001 debut release from I Grade Records.  This was the first of 4 Midnite I Grade collaborations, and also contained some selections from Dezarie, whose debut album was released the following year.  Since then, I Grade has consistently released some of the highest caliber of STX music for the masses.
