Ise Blu Equity Corp Subsidiary L.G.N. Entertainment Distribution and Select-O-Hits Announces the Release of Jamaican Icon "Sizzla" New Album "Addicted" With MBIG Entertainment

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - November 7, 2007) - Ise Blu Equity Corp. (PINKSHEETS: ISBL) subsidiary L.G.N. Entertainment Distribution, Inc. an independent distributor of music, video, movies and DVD, announces the release date for reggae icon Sizzla has been slated for January 15, 2008.

Sizzla is one of the most prolific leaders of the conscious Reggae dancehall movement. Emerging in the later half of the 90s, he helped lead dancehall back to the musical and spiritual influence of roots reggae and heavily Rastafarian subject matter. He was born Miguel Collins on April 17, 1976 in St. Mary, and was raised in the community of August Town in St. Andrew by devout Rastafarian parents. He began his career in the music industry in his early teenage years. After honing his vocal skills, he landed a gig with the Caveman Hi-Fi sound system, where he first made a name for himself as a performer. He cut his first single for the small Zagalou label in 1995, and soon moved on to Fattis 'Exterminator' Burrell. Extensive touring with fellow roots and culture artist Luciano followed, earning Sizzla critical acclaim. Working with Fattis marked an important turning point for Sizzla. A run of successful singles led to the release of Sizzla's debut album, "Burning Up" (RAS). The alliance again proved fruitful a year later with the follow-up, "Praise Ye Jah" (JetStar).

Securing his position as a top conscious reggae artist, he set about cultivating his role as a spiritual messenger. Sizzla's combination of Rasta principles and up-to-the-minute dancehall rhythms made his hard line approach more palatable. A brilliant and passionate performer, Sizzla broke boundaries, appealing to those looking for something new, music with depth. His major breakthrough came with the release in 1997 of the now classic album, "Black Woman and Child" (Greensleeves) and then "Good Ways" (Brickwall) in 1998 both produced by Bobby 'Digital' Dixon. Along with universal praise came Sizzla's first nomination for Best International Reggae Artist of the Year at the 1998 MOBO Awards and a place in various magazines' top 100 albums of the year. Sizzla has released over 45 impressive solo albums and over fifteen combination albums, crossing different genres of Reggae. He also had started his own company Kalonji Records; this set the mark of his growth not only as a great reggae artist but also a record label executive and businessman. In a joint venture with Kalonji Records, "The Overstanding" was released in November 2006 with Damon Dash Music Group and KOCH Records. This was his third album released through Kalonji Records; as well as "Black History" and "Life."

"We believe that his project will be a huge release for LGN and we are excited about all the possibilities. Sizzla is a veteran artist and continues to be successful. With over 45 albums released and still going strong, we feel that this project may have sales of 200,000 units or more," stated Steve Lane President of Ise Blu Equity Corp.

Loren Marketing has withdrawn from the Letter of Intent agreed to in October, without further consultation with LGN and after the contract had been drafted and offered for review. In a letter received from Loren Marketing addressed to Ise Blu Equity Corp. President Steve Lane, Denise Loren CEO of Loren Marketing wrote:

"As I have mentioned to you before Nick and I really want to focus on the two projects already at hand (Let's Make It Real Album and Dog-On Television). The distribution deal Loren Entertainment has in place with LGN/SOH is our priority right now and we do not wish to focus on anything else, including Loren Marketing. As of today we are closing down Loren Marketing. We appreciate everyone's help in trying to get the company going, but it is proving to be too large of a task for us at this time. Therefore, the contract and letter of intent are being turned down and Loren Entertainment will continue business as usual with LGN/SOH."

"We had been advised late Monday, that we would receive a letter requesting an extension of the closing date so this letter came as a substantial surprise to us," stated Steve Lane. "We will continue in our acquisition mode and thank the Loren's for their honesty. We offer our apologies to our shareholders' for not completing this deal. We very much dislike even making press releases on letters of intent although we have closed almost all deals that have had such letters, this time we failed," Lane continued.

The new web site for Ise Blu will be operational before the 1st of December and may be available around Thanksgiving. The site will include a Company blog where shareholders can be updated without constant press releases. Shareholders will also be able to sign up for automatic distribution of press releases and be able to contact the Company plus links to our subsidiary sites, financial statements, and other current technology items.
