NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 3, 2006 -- KOCH Records and Deja34 (Shaquille O'Neal's new venture) are proud to announce the upcoming release, "The Champions - North Meets South," presented by DJ Kayslay and DJ Greg Street. The album features NBA Championship winner Shaquille O'Neal on several tracks, including the hot single, "Can't Stop The Reign."

The new compilation album will be released on Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006.

Few DJs embody real hip-hop the way DJ Kayslay does. A graffiti legend in the '80s, and later THE King of all mixtapes with his "Streetsweepers" series, respect on the streets for Kayslay is second to none. As the official "Drama King," he was the first DJ to break landmark battles over the past decade including serving as referee for the now legendary Jay-Z vs. Nas battle and the brutal Ja Rule vs. 50 Cent war on the airwaves. Rappers consider Kayslay the go-to DJ to entrust their hottest battle raps with.

Kayslay now teams up with renowned southern radio DJ and producer Greg Street to bridge their two worlds together for a blockbuster album. "The Champions - North Meets South" showcases the best talent from each region on one CD. It includes exclusive tracks featuring Fat Joe, Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Busta Rhymes, Papoose, Yung Joc, Remy Ma, Lloyd Banks, Three 6 Mafia, The Diplomats, Ghostface, Raekwon, Cassidy, B.G., Sheek Louch, Lil' Jon and many more.

The first single from the forthcoming release will be "Can't Stop The Reign" featuring Bun B, Papoose and NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal. The video was shot on location in Miami. You can peep it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSQuAkWfIGs.

"The Champions - North Meets South" will be Kayslay's 3rd frontline release. This follows his 2 Columbia releases, "The Street Sweepers, Vol. 1," and "The Street Sweepers Vol. 2: The Pain From The Game" (released in 2003 and 2004 respectively), which together have sold over 350,000 copies. Kayslay is also the #1 DJ on New York's premier hip hop radio station, Hot 97.
