LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 29, 2005 -- Dr. Henry Jones, Chairman of MIG Records is delighted to announce the signing of multi-platinum, multi-award winning artist Coolio to the label.

"We are pleased to embark on this new journey," said Dr. Jones. "And it is with great enthusiasm that we embrace Coolio." The two concluded negotiations after the signing of Coolio's new contract this afternoon at the MIG Records offices in Marina Del Rey.

Coolio, who is best known for his single, "Gangsta's Paradise" was very excited, saying that he "just wanted to make music."

Now under the MIG Records label, Coolio, like his fellow artists under the banner, takes on the additional title of "Ambassador for the Digital Divide."
