HULK Entertainment Secures Landmark Multi-Tier Deal with eOne

Dallas, TX - HULK Entertainment, the nation's premiere record label, artist management and film company, has agreed to terms on a major music and film distribution deal with Entertainment One Entertainment. Although the structure of this partnership will be an overall lucrative venture for HULKent, the company will also provide subsidiary distribution to qualified artists and indie labels.

In the music world, eOne has enjoyed success with artists such as DJ Khaled, Jim Jones, Slaughterhouse, and Dorrough Music, to name a few. With several major film projects on deck, eOne is also behind popular television shows like AMC's The Walking Dead and Hell on Wheels, and NBC's new series The Firm.

Entertainment One's strategy is to build the leading independent content ownership and distribution business, acquiring films, television programs and music content to share worldwide. Hulk Entertainment's deal with eOne will provide multiple distribution opportunities for all entities under their umbrella.
Current HULKent artists include New Orleans supergroup The Rap Pack, Dorrough Music, Brian Angel of Day 26, Tum Tum, B-Hamp, Ashley Kimbrae, Blak, Official Watson, Big Sid and DJ Kayotik. As they develop their business as a major indie, Hulk will seek out new labels and artists with sales history to bring into the fold.
In coming months, HULKent will release the Strength n Numberz mixtape and short film, which will feature their entire roster of talent. Individual projects will include Tum Tum's Eat or Get Ate 2 album; the single "Raxx" from The Rap Pack featuring Brian Angel; and Blak's singles "Bail Money" featuring Dorrough, and "It's a Party" featuring Ashley Kimbrae, Tum Tum, B-Hamp and Official Watson.
Angela Howard, Urban Label Manager for Entertainment One, asserts that HULKent is setting a new bar for independent distribution.
"We have high expectations for Hulk Entertainment," Howard says. "They have an experienced staff and talented array of artists. The potential for growth in all areas is unlimited, and we look forward to working with them."
The strong team members at Hulk Entertainment are ready to explore their professional freedom with this new venture, and they feel assured that the path to creative and financial greatness is imminent.
"I am thankful for all of our artists and staff at Hulk, and appreciate the hard work they have put in to take us to this point," says HULKent Vice President Dorothea "DC" Cole-Davis. "In this new venture with eOne, we are prepared to take everything we have done to new heights in all facets of entertainment."

"With the instability of the major label system, the timing couldn't be any better for a dominant indie such as Hulk, to come along and provide a much needed outlet for quality content," explains HULKent VP of A&R Mike "Moodswing" Senters. "I am extremely proud of the fact that our corporate headquarters is based in Dallas, Texas, the place where many critics of our agenda said it couldn't be done."

MP3: Illmaculate - "One More Time" Ft. Sandpeople

From Audible Treats:

MP3: Illmaculate - "One More Time" Ft. Sandpeople

Late last month, Illmaculate released his latest album, Skrill Talk. On June 2nd, the Portland, Oregon, rapper will celebrate the album's release with a show at Branx, but before then, Illmaculate is joining his Sandpeople crew for a string of European tour dates. Today, to kick off the tour announcement, Illmaculate is releasing the latest single from Skrill Talk, "One More Time," featuring Sandpeople.

The song, produced by Soleternity, is Illmaculate's response to the pressures of an industry driven by release dates and timetables; he wants to do things his way - and with his crew by his side. "My crew, Sandpeople, definitely had to be on the album," remarks Illmaculate, noting that the song's feel is representative of the Sandpeople process for making music. "This song really has its own vibe within the scope of the album, but it works," he says, "just like everyone in the crew had their own approach to the song, while still remaining cohesive."

Later this month, Illmaculate will be hitting the road with the rest of his Sandpeople crew, as they head overseas for a string of European dates. The tour kicks off May 12th in Sweden and makes stops in Germany, Amsterdam, London, and more, before winding down on May 26th in Oslo, Norway. A full list of dates can be found below.

In other news, on June 9th, Illmaculate, who, since 2004, has proven himself as one of the most accomplished battle rappers in the world, will travel to Los Angeles to take part in the KOTD Vendetta competition. In what will be the biggest battle of his career, Illmaculate will be matching up against Arsonal, while Canibus and Dizaster will also be battling at the event.
