Summary from English Wikipedia (enwiki)

Chung King Recording Studios, formerly known as Chung King House of Metal, was a New York City recording studio founded by John King with financial backing of the Etches brothers and engineer expertise of Steve Ett, which became a site of many classic punk and hip hop recordings. King started Secret Society Records in 1979 before building a studio on Centre Street in Chinatown—Chung King, and during early work with Def Jam Recordings, Rick Rubin dubbed the studio the Chung King House of Metal—and therefore changed the name of the company in 1986. Modern musicians and engineers had used Chung King Studios in many ways and the studio hosted world-famous artists such as Amy Winehouse, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Jay Z.
