Nashville, TN – (February xx, 2004) – Out of Nashville, Music City USA– emerges Rock Solid Entertainment, a power-house of talent including Los Angeles natives PYG’z, Cali Active and Ill Gates, Nashville natives TNT, Diggz and Caliber, Philly native Sweets, along with CJ Mac.
With an understanding of the music industry and the struggles emerging rap and R&B artist face, The General chose to invest time and money in building a family owned label. This was something the famed “Music Row” sector was not familiar with nor seemed interested in building. “New Breed” has become associated with .L.A Lakers Gary Payton not only in name, but also because he is a fan of the artists.
The debut album set to release May 4th, ,2004 will feature Ill Gates “I See Some Ladies Tonight,” Caliber “Holla Back,” TNT “Take It Outside” and the PYG’s “Sit Down and Talk to a G.” “We are excited about this project and feel the positive feedback already with Ill Gates moving up 5 spots on the charts already,” explained The General. The duo put together the premiere release on Rock Solid Entertainment to showcase a roster of lyrically talented artists and ingenious production of Gary Payton Presents Rock Solid Entertainment “New Breed”
