NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony has inked a deal with Philadelphia rapper Cassidy, who is planning to release a new album on Anthonys Krossover Entertainment.
Along with Cassidys upcoming album, Krossover Entertainment will release Bergs debut album tentatively titled Language Arts.
Bergs debut will feature rappers like Rick Ross, Cool & Dre, Jadakiss, Gorilla Zoe, Raheem Devaughn and Bergs Runnin Mates family, which also features label mate Cassidy.
Krossover Entertainment is positioned to experience immediate growth in the mainstream entertainment industry by assembling a high powered team of management professionals and industry tastemakers, Anthony told AllHipHop.com about the long-term vision for the label.
As Cassidy prepares his debut release for Anthonys Krossover Entertainment, Eastside, Atlanta rapper Berg aka Diego Ca$h will be the first artist released on Anthonys fledgling imprint.
Berg recently released a mix tape titled 800 Bodies, which showcases his alter ego.
This mix tape shows the transformation of Berg into Diego Ca$h, and displays my lyrical growth and dedication to [the] genre of music that raised me into a rapper,” added Berg.
The news comes as Anthonys team the Denver Nuggets start get off to a slow start for the 2008-09 NBA season.
The Nuggets, who are 1-3, recently traded guard Allen Iverson, for The Detroit Pistons Antonio McDyess and center Cheikh Samb.
