SMC Recordings Inc. Is Locked and Loaded for a Stellar Finish to the Year Announcing the Remaining 2010 Release Schedule

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2010) -  SMC Recordings Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMCE) After spending the first half of 2010 renewing their deal with Universal Music Groups Indie giant, Fontana, SMC Recordings is loading up releases to close out the year with some noise.

The crown jewel for SMC's new releases comes in the form of a brand new album from Grammy award winner Killer Mike. His SMC debut "I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind II," garnered massive critical acclaim across the board and was even heralded as "the best Hip Hop album of 2008" by online giant HipHopDX. Mike is currently putting finishing touches on "PL3DGE" while working out of Atlanta's legendary Tree Sounds studios where Elton John, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne & Outkast have all recorded chart topping masterpieces.

The releases began last week with the Billboard charting Thizz City, a compilation that marks the launch of the heavily anticipated SMC subdivision focusing on the best of San Francisco hip hop artists and introduces futures stars which include Roach Gigz, Killa Keise, Cam City and more.

Next on the release schedule is highly anticipated release from The Pack, who have received mainstream success over the years. They return on August 24th with Wolfpack Party. The album is already receiving rave reviews; Spin Magazine called it "engagingly fly"; and XXL said, "Wolfpack Party serves up the perfect soundtrack to the frat party and hood club." The Pack's first single "Wolfpack Party 2010" debuted on iTunes' Top 100 Hip Hop songs while MTVU is doing the exclusive world premier for the video next week.

Another stellar release scheduled is the super-group: Keak Da Sneak, PSD The Drivah & Messy Marv. The trio is following up their Billboard charting debut with "Da Bidness 2" due out this November.

In addition to these stellar new releases, SMC has been working on major signings that not only ensure that 2010 will close strong but start 2011 with the best first quarter in the history of the company.

"We have had a lot of growth within the company this past year; a slew of successful releases and we've expanded our roster with established acts all the while continuing to successfully break new artists in the market. We are excited about the coming year and the major acts we will be adding to our roster soon," said SMC CEO Ralph Tashjian.
