Sean Kingston Releases New Mixtape "King of Kingz" Exclusively on DatPiff.com

Free to the Public, Kingston's First New Mixtape in Five Years Features Justin Bieber, Akon, B.O.B. and More

LEESPORT, PA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2011) - Idle Media, Inc. (OTCBB: IDLM) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, DatPiff.com will be releasing Sean Kingston's new mixtape, "King of Kingz."

The mixtape will debut exclusively on DatPiff.com on February 3rd, Kingston's birthday, and will include features from Justin Bieber, Akon, B.O.B. & More. The tape is hosted by DJ Ill Will & DJ Drama, and is FREE to the public. 

"We are unbelievably excited that Sean has chosen to work with us to get this mixtape out to the public. It's the first tape he's dropped in the last five years," commented Mr. Marcus Frasier, CEO of Idle Media, Inc. "This comes on the back of Sean approaching us in December to help promote his new solo artist, Tory Lanez, of Toronto, Canada."

Kingston, a platinum recording artist widely known for his original hit, "Beautiful Girls," just came off tour with Justin Bieber. His recent radio hit, "Fire Burning" has received substantial air play.

Sean Kingston stated, "I'm proud to have DatPiff behind me to help power this project. A lot of hard work has gone into this mixtape, and I have full trust in KP, Marcus and all the guys at DatPiff, who I know will get it the best exposure possible online."

In 2007, Kingston was the opening act for Gwen Stefani's "The Sweet Escape Tour," and for select dates on Beyoncé's "The Beyoncé Experience" tour.

Kingston added, "I've been a supporter of DatPiff (Idle Media) for years, and the platform they provide for established artists like myself, and up and coming indie artists."

DatPiff plans to feature more exclusives, with established and up-and-coming new artists. "The whole idea of DatPiff is to get the music in the hands of the fans," added Mr. Frasier. "Before DatPiff, it was hard for fans in different parts of the country and the world to get their hands on mixtape material that wasn't local. We look forward to continuing to work with Sean and other artists and DJs to help them distribute their music to as large an audience as possible."
