404 Music, Inc. proudly announces that it has signed a joint venture label deal with D-BOYZ Entertainment to release the first album from former Cash Money recording artists, Stone and Lac. Collectively known as the D-BOYZ, their upcoming album "Life of a D-BOY" is an unprecedented effort that features eleven former Cash Money artists including Mannie Fresh, Juvenile, BG, TQ, Jazze Pha, Strings, Kango, Wacko, Skip, Chain, and Ms. Tee. Rap superstar Lil' Wayne also makes an appearance on the hit single, "It's Your Money," which is currently number six on the charts at www.soundcheckny.com. The album is scheduled for release at the end of April 2008.

As an original member of The Hot Boys, Lac co-wrote some of Cash Money's early hits, including the smash single, "#1 Stunna." Stone's musical resume also boasts collaborations with multi-platinum acts like The Hot Boys, Big Tymers, Juvenile, T.I., and Mac-10. He also co-wrote the hit single, "Still Fly" with Mannie Fresh.

Straight from the gritty melting pot of New Orleans, the D-BOYZ music is full of stories depicting the lifestyle of the street hustler and the dire consequences that often accompany it.

With the formation of their record label, D-BOYZ Entertainment, Stone and Lac are now poised to unleash their raw and uncompromising tales of urban struggle on the world of hip-hop.

In describing the album, Stone says, "Even though all our music talks about the struggles in the street, we want to show that you can still make it in life and do something positive."

"It is a thrill and a privilege to be part of what is long overdue for Stone and Lac. The D-BOYZ are coming out with a real record from top to bottom," states Nina K. Easton, President and CEO of 404 Music, Inc.

Easton is a highly respected industry executive and co-founder of Ichiban Records. Highlighted as "one of the fastest growing small companies in the U.S." in Entrepreneur Magazine, Ichiban's roster included Gold and Platinum selling acts like Vanilla Ice, MC Breed, Curtis Mayfield, 95 South, and many others.

Established in 1998 and based out of Atlanta, 404 Music had success with releases from Popa Wu from the Wu-Tang Clan (produced by Rza) and Young Jeezy's first album. Due to the shift in the industry, 404 Music suspended operations, and Easton focused on running MDI Distribution, which is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary. With the influx of new technology creating ideal conditions for the re-emergence of 404 Music, Easton resurrected the label in October of 2007.

MDI Distribution will be handling national and international distribution for the upcoming album, "Life of a D-BOY." MDI Distribution distributes music to retailers and provides music placement in movies, television, commercials, video games, as well as all online channels.
