SMC Recordings Inc. Announces Ron Artest’s New Label Deal, Set to Create Winning Team
SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwire – December 15, 2010) – SMC Recordings Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMCE) announces a new partnership with Ron Artest, star player for the Los Angeles Lakers and his label, Artest Media Group. Under this new partnership the successful independent label SMC Recordings and Artest Media Group will be creating a stellar roster.
Ralph Tashjian, CEO for SMC Recordings, is very proud to announce their new partnership with Artest Media Group. He goes on to say “Partnering with Ron Artest and his Artest Media Group puts us in an incredible position for acquiring new artists. Ron’s passion for the music and entertainment business, as well as his incredible reach to already established Hip Hop acts, makes this a perfect marriage.”
SMC Recordings and Artest Media will be marketing the existing artists already signed to Artest Media as well as jointly pursuing established Hip Hop acts. Ron Artest launched Tru Warier Records in 2002, named after a nickname he received growing up in the Queensbridge projects in New York. Living in the heart of the birthplace of Hip Hop, music became just as much a driving force for him as basketball. Recently, Artest Media Group and http://www.RonArtest.com was created as a multi-media platform to encompass all of Ron’s entertainment endeavors.
“I am really happy to partner with SMC, this will be my first real shot of getting the music of myself and my new artists out,” Artest shared. “I love music and I love my fans so I am looking forward to sharing this with them.”
“Ron Artest’s passion for music is insatiable. He is focused on and dedicated to winning and this is a simple extension of that attitude. Myself and Fontana Distribution are looking forward to strengthening our partnership with SMC as a result of working with Mr. Artest and ensuring we continue to win in the marketplace,” said Ron Spaulding, President of Fontana Distribution.
From overcoming his tumultuous childhood to the controversy that has swirled around him throughout his career; Artest has always championed adversity. With this new team and strong focus on music, he is ready to win big again.
Look out for some big artists announcements from Artest Media/SMC Recordings in the coming months.

Favorite Ralph Tashjian quote #19

Ralph Tashjian: “We are ecstatic about the reaction the Rakim video is generating despite taking what we felt was an unorthodox marketing approach to its release. It is indeed creating an enormous stir in the urban music industry, far exceeding the expectations of the SMC marketing team.”
