RMD Entertainment's Breakout Star Roc Monee Wraps High Profile Video for His First Single "OverDrive"

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2006 -- RMD Entertainment Group (PINKSHEETS: RMDG) Proudly announced today that their star artist Roc Monee wrapped the video shoot for "OverDrive," the first single from his highly anticipated album "Diamond In The Rough." Roc's album is set to hit U.S. shelves on September 26th with distribution through Bungalo Records and Universal Music Group (a subsidiary of Vivendi Universal (NYSE: V), while landing on the streets overseas at the end of August through the Pickwick Group Ltd. of London.

Lamont "Liquid" Burell, one of the industry's brightest up-and-comers, directed the video for "OverDrive" and was blown away by Roc's natural ability to shine. Burell has worked with the likes of Alicia Keys and reported that Roc was a star whose charisma and raw energy were made for the camera. Roc will have many more opportunities to shine on film in the years to come, including his upcoming special on The Real Hip-Hop Network (RHN).

RMD CEO Giorgio Costonis commented, "Many people don't know this but I began pursuing Roc a long time ago when we moved RMD from Boston to Philly. That is relevant because I want to make it clear the Roc has been blowing people's minds for years and he has taken the time to become a master of his craft." Costonis added, "Roc's primary focus has been selfless from the day we met; he wants to set a glowing example for inner-city kids by proving that hard work and determination can open the doors to success. He truly practices what he preaches and we expect his album to break new ground in the industry."

The video will go into an editing stage and once completed will be serviced to all major music video format channels including but not limited to BET, MTV, RHN, and VH1. RMDG management also announced plans to place all of their artists music videos on to Google Video for promotional purposes.
