T-Bones Records is a record label founded by producer Tim Ramenofsky (aka "Headfridge"). The label was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi when Ramenofsky was a member of the metal fusion band Loppybogymi. In 2000, Ramenofsky discovered rapper Afroman and produced the infamous album, "Because I Got High". The record was originally released on T-Bones Records. The title track was soon posted on file-sharing service Napster and made it to The Howard Stern Show.[1] This song was the theme song of the film Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back[2] and was later featured in the films Disturbia and The Perfect Score. "Because I Got High" was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance in 2002.[3]

T-Bones Records is known for releasing artists who mix and mash up various genres, including the jazz-funk-metal sound of Loppybogymi, to the trip-hop mix of Savalas Brothers, to the jazz-fusion of Dukes of Jazzard, to the punk-metal fusion of The Cooters.
