Sacramento Rap Artist Bueno Joins SMC Recordings

"Can't Knock the Hustle" Available December 15 Worldwide

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - SMC Recordings announced today it officially teamed up with Noyz Music Group. The first release from this new collaboration is Sacramento rapper Bueno's album, "Can't Knock the Hustle," debuting December 15.

The album features Mistah F.A.B., The Jacka, Oakland Legend Yukmouth and Inglewood's 2Eleven representing Young Jeezy's CTE imprint. Production includes Ice Cube producers, Hallway Productionz, Cozmo (Bun B, Game), and the Grammy-nominated team of Stereotypes (Neyo, Mary J Blige) who saw huge success with their hit single "Damage" (Danity Kane).

Hailing from South Sacramento, Bueno grew up in the Meadowview Carella Gardens low income housing area where he ran the mean streets as a young boy. Looking to the future, Bueno became a high school basketball star and graduated from college, but his love of music pulled him into the rap game.

In 2003 Bueno formed the Noyz Music Group (NMG) with current Co-CEO Lavega "Kream" Sims. Recognizing his talent, childhood pal George Foreman Jr. assisted in brokering the joint venture deal between Noyz and SMC. "I have personally witnessed Bueno's grind and dedication for years and am happy to assist with the growth of his career," says Foreman Jr.

Bueno received regional acclaim with his first two projects, "Change The Game" in 2003 and "The Sacramento B" in 2007. The albums featured appearances by E-40, the late Mac Dre and Keak Da Sneak. "Can't Knock The Hustle" is sure to make an even bigger impact with Bueno's single "6 A.M." currently tearing up radio airwaves throughout Northern California. The official music video for "6 A.M." was released in October and recently premiered on MTV Jams.
