OG Nation Joint Venture Partner Inks Deal With Fontana/Universal

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2007) - OG Nation, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: OGNA) joint venture partner Fase 1 Entertainment is pleased to announce that Fase 1 has successfully inked a deal with Fontana/Universal.

OG Nation, through its Fase 1 joint venture partner, will be in front of the largest distributor of music in the record industry. In meeting with Chris Ayres and the staff over at Fontana, Fase 1 knew that from an independent perspective, this would be the right place for them to call home. Fontana staff has open arms with their label in providing them with training to succeed and access UMVD's back-end system. Fontana/Universal allows them to have the resources of their sales staff, field representatives, their brands and so much more.

Fase 1 Entertainment for the rest of the year will be on the road securing radio while marketing the OG brand name and branding their labels while searching for new talent to distribute in 2008. Moreover, they will be signing sub-labels to distribute through their distribution deal. Fase 1 Entertainment will also be providing some of these labels with the tools to take unknown artists to the "next level" in the music industry.

Fase 1 has years of experience in developing, administrating, and selling records as well as marketing to the urban lifestyle. Fase 1's knowledge of the record industry will be able to directly impact the OG Nation bottom line with new artists and world-renowned artists helping promote the OG Urban lifestyle as well as the beverages the company plans to distribute.

About Fase 1:

Fase 1 has participated in selling millions of independent records for such artists as Paperboy, Coo Coo Cal, Daz Dillenger, Lil Flip, Twista, Geto Boys, Master P., Cash Money and many others. John Patillo and John Ferguson have worked with such renowned companies as Tommy Boy Records and Southwest Wholesale, at one time the largest independent distributor in Texas. This major/indie mix allowed them to stay in front of their competitors and have given them the ability to network though out the entertainment industry with OG Nation. Currently, Fase 1 has deals with Keeplock Entertainment, 3Sixty5 Records, and Swing On D's Entertainment. Over the next few months, the label roster will continue to grow. The deal with Fontana/Universal will allow further distribution with their new founded arrangements and joint ventures with OG Nation and all marketing efforts from a joint perspective.
