Ice-T’s Final Level Entertainment has inked a
multi-year distribution deal with Penalty Associated Labels/Ryko Distribution..
"There are 3 types of companies in the music
business," Ice-T said. "The ones that make things happen, the ones
that watch things happen, and then there are those major conglomerates that
scratch their heads and say…what happened? We chose partnering with the
right company in Ryko who make things happen."
The first release under the new distribution
deal is a soundtrack, Ice T Presents Pimpin 101. The album features Busta
Rhymes, Rampage, Amil, M.O.P., Cuban Link, SMG (short for Sex, Money & Gunz
which features Ice, Smoothe Da Hustler and Trigga The Gambler) and Kool Keith.
“I look forward to being in business with
Ice T, Ellis Pacheco and Mickey Benston and share their vision for building
a new multi-media company with great music and innovative DVD’s” says Neil
Levine, president of P.A.L.
Ice-T Presents Pimpin 101 hits stores June 17.
