Smack DVD Magazine is planning their first release since entering into a distribution deal with Koch Records last.
Smack The Album: Vol. 1 features new, exclusive music from DMX, Young Jeezy, Fat Joe, Bun B, B.G., Juvenile, Maino and Stack Bundles among others.
The DVD segment includes videos, performances and interviews from Paul Wall, Mike Jones, E-40, Mannie Fresh, Murder Inc. and Funkmaster Flex.
The Koch deal marks the first time that the quarterly DVD magazine has had major retail distribution.
The two disc set will be sold at all Trans World Entertainment stores including FYE, Sam Goody, Target, Best Buy and Circuit City, as well as mom and pop locations.
“We are enthusiastic about the opportunity we have to bring our title to a national market,” owner and CEO Troy “Smack” Mitchell told AllHipHop.com. “It’s more than just a DVD – it’s a movement. Plain and simple, we are the streets.”
Since its inception in November 2002, Smack has sold over 750,000 copies of its DVD units.
The DVD magazine focuses on the various contents of the entertainment, movie, television, fashion and sports industries.
In related news, this fall Smack plans to produce a Raw & Uncensored DVD featuring previously unreleased footage from prior volumes.
According to reps, a Smack print magazine and documentary video series are also said to be in the works.
Smack The Album: Vol. 1 is scheduled to hit stores on June 6.
