PR: Lil B The Based God Signs to Amalgam Digital

December 29th, 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lil B The Based God Signs To Amalgam Digital, Preps New Albums

After a year of leveraging his social networking platforms releasing highly controversial statements from his twitter account; threatening both Kanye West and comedian Lil Duval with rape; calling himself a “pretty b*tch”; starting and ending a dispute with Joe Budden; as well as flooding his fans with wide range of his “rare” music as free downloads via Hulkshare; and utilizing YouTube to unleash a massive influx of home grown videos such as “Looks Like Jesus”, “The Pretty B**ch is Back”, “Paris Hilton”, and “Ellen Degeneres”; it should come as no surprise that the self proclaimed Based God, Lil B takes his internet social savvy and signs to the pioneering new media outfit, Amalgam Digital. The rising entertainment company comprised of a destination site, major label roster, and distribution powerhouse is most known for launching Hip Hop’s first genre specific digital store, also serving as an open platform for all independent artists. In a short period of time, the company has dominated the independent sector showcasing it’s unique brand of artist development and has become a launching pad and label home to acts such as Joe Budden, Max B, Young Riot, Curren$y, Saigon, Peedi Crakk, Dj Benzi and many more.

Now that the ink is dry, Lil B The Based God will be releasing his first official digital-only solo album “Angels Exodus” on January, 18th 2010 as a prelude to his forthcoming “Glass Face” album, both on Amalgam Digital, which will handle the marketing and worldwide distribution of these releases exclusively.

Lil B’s albums will be made exclusively in the digital-only format and available at the www.AmalgamDigital.com online store. Regarding the nature of the releases and his relationship with his new label, Lil B made the following statement:

“This is Lil B. Shout outs to Amalgam Digital, they been ahead of this for a while. We are putting out these two albums called Angels Exodus and then Glass Face. It’s  going to be historical works of art with these albums. On Angels Exodus it’s going to be real hiphop and sticking to the script. I’ll be going far outside of the boundaries and staying far away from the script too. The Glass Face album will live up to it’s name. These albums are something everyone will understand. They are the reason why I’m 10’ tall and everyone else is just 6’7’’…no diss. You know I love everybody”  – Lil B The Based God

Lil B is widely recognized for his association as 1/4th member of The Pack, a rap group that was instrumental in ushering in the Bay Area’s “Hyphy” movement and most known for their hit song “Vans”. At the age of 19, Lil B was the first rapper to author a book, titled “Taking Over” which demonstrates his positive philosophy of “anything is possible”.

With the new media revolution in full force, and the backing of the digital music space innovators Amalgam Digital, Lil B is now poised to deliver his music and message to both the long time fans as well as the first time listener. Be on the look-out for leaks and videos from these upcoming projects.

The '2011 Canadian Rap Future Superstars' compilation is non-profit initiative aimed at providing exposure for up-and-coming Canadian rap artists.

The diverse 2011 compilation features 34 Canadian artists, 8 Canadian DJs and 17 Canadian beatmakers, spanning 10 Canadian cities from Halifax, NS to Victoria, BC.

Brockway Entertainment increased its community collaboration in 2010 as Moncton's Nayles provided the album design, and Montreal's Asher Media Relations will be providing publicity assistance again this year.

The compilation began in 2003 as a handful of burnt CDs made by executive producer Troy Neilson for friends & family during the winter holidays. In 2005, Neilson made extra copies, which were sent to campus radio and other media outlets. Since then, the success of the compilation has continued to grow, while annually topping the campus radio rap charts.

"As an artist, I understand the struggle", states Neilson. "For years I wrote reviews and features via HipHopCanada.com to provide exposure for Canadian rap artists. By 2005 I was starting to run short on time, so I explored other ways to give back to the community. That's when the compilation series really began to take shape."

Artists wishing to be considered for next year's compilation are encouraged to submit their music via SonicBids ( link coming soon ) or by sending full CD to Brockway Ent, PO Box 90014, Ottawa, ON, K1V 1J8.

Brockway Entertainment was impressed by several independent Canadian rap releases in 2010, and is glad to have the opportunity to share with you some of their favourite tracks. We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and you enjoy our 2011 choice selections.

Happy Holidays!
Troy
