KOCH Records to Release New Album by Atlanta's Montana Da Mac on October 23, 2007

New Album, "Da Life I Chose," Features Hit Single "Rock On (Do The Rock Man)" and Features Juvenile, Gucci Mane and UNK

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 27, 2007) - KOCH Records announces the release of "Da Life I Chose," the new album by Atlanta's Montana Da Mac, on October 23, 2007.

If you don't know about Montana Da Mac already, you will very soon. Hailing from Atlanta, GA, this rising star holds one of the fastest-moving singles on nationwide urban radio with "Rock On (Do The Rock Man)" feat. UNK, which is already up to 1,100 spins.

The video for "Rock On" is currently MTV2's Jam of the Week. The video can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aExgBgLGDM.

With the success of the Shop Boyz' smash single "Party Like a Rock Star," "Rock On" is the obvious next evolution into the "Rock Star" mentality that is sweeping the hip hop nation. But Montana Da Mac sets himself apart from his peers by incorporating the "Rock Man" dance, or what he calls an "air guitar with swag" into the track.

Even though the hit song will introduce him to the music world, it's the rest of his material that will keep him familiar. The laid back "To Live And Die in GA" adds a Southerners twist to the 2Pac track that inspired it. He goes back to the club on the bouncy "Hold Up," where he lets the ladies who like to get crunk know he likes his dancing shaken, not stirred. Then on the airy "Party Tonight," Montana shows listeners why the other half of his name is Da Mac.

With guest appearances from UNK, Gucci Mane and Juvenile and production from DJ Montay ("Walk It Out," "2 Step") and Shawty Red (Young Jeezy), "Da Life I Chose" showcases Montana Da Mac as an artist who is not afraid to be himself. So even with a hard childhood and rough background Montana doesn't aim to remind the world of his struggles, but rather enjoy the celebration of life itself.
