Samantha Ronson became the first rock act signed to Roc-A-Fella Records. In 2002, it was announced Duncan Sheik would be co-producing an album for Ronson that would be out in the spring. Ronson released four songs on Roc-A-Fella Records : "Pull My Hair Out", "Fool", "If It's Gonna Rain" and "Built This Way," and wrote and recorded her first album, Red. "Built This Way" was featured in the movie Mean Girls starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams. "Pull my hair out" was featured on the soundtrack of the movie The woodsman starring Kevin Bacon and the song "Wanted", by Rhymefest featuring Samantha Ronson, appeared in the movie Half Nelson starring Ryan Gosling. In 2004, she opened for JC Chasez on his Schizophrenic tour.
However, inauspicious timing and the dissolution of the Roc-A-Fella Records led to her first album never being released. Although Red was never officially released, downloads were made available from her MySpace page. Ronson has also made a number of appearances on mix tapes produced by artists on the Roc-A-Fella label.
