Knoc-Turn'al Signs Distro Deal, Launches Community Forum & Website
Knoc-Turn'al - 'Knoc’s Ville' on Hoopla Media Group/LRT/Universal scheduled to arrive in-stores first quarter of 2010.
Knoc-Turn'al launches a community forum & website:
West coast rapper Knoc-turn’al, best known for his appearances on the multi-platinum “2001” album by Dr. Dre and his now infamous guest appearance on “Bad Intentions”, has signed a distribution deal with Hoopla Media Group/LRT/Universal for his upcoming “Knoc’s Ville” album. The negotiations have been ongoing for the past two months and the two sides recently came to an agreement and have finalized the deal.
Justin Melo, who was recently named a senior partner to the Hoopla Media Group, had the following to say: “The signing of Knoc-turn’al is a step in the right direction for the Hoopla Media Group. We are talking about an internationally known artist whose decorated resume reads only names such as Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, DJ Quik, Scott Storch, Eminem, Missy Elliot, Warren G, Nate Dogg, Xzibit, Too Short and countless other world renowned artists.
He continued: "It’s been about five and a half years since Knoc-turn’al last put out a legitimate retail project, and he has recorded hundreds of songs since “The Way I Am”; it’s time for the world to once again hear what he’s bringing to the table. We are looking forward to collaborating with Treacherous Records on the Knoc-turn’al project.”
Speaking on the signing Knoc-turn'al told Dubcnn: “First I just feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve been out. I know the fans appreciate one thing, me coming out again. I’ve re-created myself and did what I had to do to get a good distribution situation. I just believe it’s a good look and it’s about time that Knoc-turn’al fans have some more Knoc-turn’al music."
He Added: "For those who don’t know me or don’t remember me, they can go online and check me out. They will probably remember some songs of mine from when they were a little younger. This is another time coming though. I still have good relationships with everybody on the west coast, Dre, Snoop and so on. I’ve never burned a bridge. It’s not just about the west. I’ve recreated myself to make a whole new barrage of music so that I can actually appeal to the world because I am a global artist. I’ve sold music in Egypt. Thank you to Treacherous and Hoopla Media Group/LRT/ Universal for believing in me.”
