Bentley Shows the "Greener" Side of Life With the First Single From His Highly Anticipated Album "CoolOutrageousLoversOfUniquelyRawStyle"

Debut Album to Be Executive Produced by Kanye West

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 12, 2009) - The first gentleman of Hip-Hop, Bentley, is pleased to announce a new label partnership with E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records). Bentley's long awaited debut album, "CoolOutrageousLoversOfUniquelyRawStyle," set to be executive produced by Kanye West, will be released in the forthcoming months. The album's exciting first single "Greener" features soul man Anthony Hamilton and was produced by Chris Scholar.

"Greener" is part of the soundtrack to a new movement, ushering in a new "COOL": having faith in God, the importance of education, self-respect and treating others as you want to be treated. Fans have already gravitated toward these tenants through his hit MTV show, "From G's to Gents."

"The song 'Greener' is about leaving the past and looking to the future... whether it is a relationship, a career change or any type of upgrade in your life. 'Greener' ultimately speaks to broadening our horizons and celebrating new possibilities," states Bentley. "Being Greener is a lifestyle... a better diet, taking care of our environment, and maintaining healthy relationships. I believe that living a greener lifestyle is important, yet challenging. It is my hope that after listening and seeing the visual for 'Greener,' people will be inspired to join the movement."

Bentley enticed fans last summer with the single "Everybody" featuring Kanye West and Andre 3000. The video became a favorite showcasing all three artists paying homage to groups like The Temptations and the Four Tops, and was the first video to debut on a free weekly feature on the iTunes store called "Music Video of The Week."
