Hellfyre Club is an American independent record label based in Los Angeles, California. It was founded and is currently owned by rapper Nocando.[1]

According to Pitchfork Media, it is "an assemblage of West Coast art rap luminaries connected to Project Blowed, a long-running hip hop workshop that served as a proving ground for 90s and aughts L.A. aesthetes from Freestyle Fellowship and Abstract Rude to Pigeon John."[2]
