Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. Announces Big Lou Media Frenzy

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 8, 2007 -- Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GMSC) is pleased to announce that Hip Hop and R&B media has been swarming around Big Lou over the last few weeks.

Underground rap sensation Big Lou is taking the rap industry by storm as he continues his tri-state tour of sold out showcases. In the last two weeks, Big Lou has had over twenty interviews with various industry internet and print magazines. He has also participated in a handful of TV interviews and radio shows. Last Saturday night, Big Lou participated in a live "Radio Takeover" on New York City's 91.9 FM. During the hour long promotion, Big Lou took over the airwaves, introducing and promoting his music and label. He has other similar promotions later this month.

As stated in a previous press release, Big Lou and Aftermath artist Busta Rhymes collaborated on a freestyle compilation last month. The collaboration, titled "Freestyle," is currently in heavy rotation on Hot 97 (NYC's hottest Hip Hop and R&B radio station), and on Shady 45 (a satellite radio station owned by Eminem). Big Lou and Busta Rhymes recently recorded a second collaboration, titled "No One Does It Better," which is now in current rotation as well.

"Free media exposure is the best thing that could ever happen to a young, rising rap artist," stated Frank Urban, Big Lou's manager. "Hip Hop fans and industry leaders read those interviews and rave reviews and they want to find out more. Big named artists and labels are hearing about Big Lou and his talent, and they are banging down Kay Slay's door to find out more about this underground artist. We are definitely not going to slow down anytime soon. Our plan is to continue promoting his music, recording new tracks, and selling out shows. Big Lou's talent and all of the media exposure will take care of the rest."
