Stadium Entertainment Corporation, the full-service entertainment company founded in 2006 by longtime music industry veterans Gary Katz, Camille Barbone, and Jerome Mas has formally announced that they have inked a licensing agreement with the multi-platinum-selling rapper T-Pain’s digital-only label, Nappy Boy Digital.

Under this new licensing agreement the first single from Stadium Entertainment’s upcoming CD release is “Beam Me Up,” featuring T-Pain, Rick Ross and introducing Nappy Boy artist Tay Dizm. “Beam Me Up” will also appear on Stadium’s debut compilation CD, TRUE TO THE GAME, which is being released on October 21, 2008. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of TRUE TO THE GAME will benefit the fundraising initiatives of the Kansas City-based Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Stadium Entertainment Corp. was created because “we recognized the need to construct a new paradigm in an industry that often forgets that its reach and power comes with certain responsibilities,” stated founding member Barbone. Stadium Entertainment Corp. is uniquely different from other emerging independent record and consumer entertainment entities in that each release, with the Stadium Entertainment Corp. imprint,will create a revenue stream that is pledged to the fundraising efforts of a wide-variety of politically-correct, grass-roots, philanthropic organizations. With this mission and its focus on philanthropic efforts, Stadium Entertainment will generate projects featuring like-minded artists, such as T-Pain who share a socially-conscious perspective, and who desire to “give back” to the community-at-large. As Gary Katz describes: “We’ve created a new business model where the artists, their music and worthy charities can come together to participate in projects that have a profound impact on the lives of others.”

David Abram, one of Nappy Boy Digital’s founders added: “We embrace out-of-the-box thinking, and we felt that Stadium Entertainment exemplifies this. Gary, Camille and Jerome have developed an incredible vision that calls upon their collective intellectual currency and practical experience. We knew, almost from the start, that working with them and helping to further Stadium Entertainment’s philanthropic thrust would result in creating an exciting new business model and we’re excited to be a part of it all.”

TRUE TO THE GAME, in addition to this first single, will feature new tracks combining the talents of successful and prominent recording artists with new talent such as GLC featuring Kanye West, Chingy featuring Ziggy Nina, Raiyn featuring Talib Kweli, Sam Chris featuring Big Boi of OutKast, Tone BlacQ featuring Snoop Dog, and Yung Joc, which Stadium Entertainement believes will capture and engage the music-buying consumer’s attention.

Currently, “Beam Me Up,” is receiving more than 500 spins each week at urban and mix radio formats and the indie digital label has yet to formally seek “adds.” Distribution of “Beam Me Up” is handled solely via digital sales, and Nappy Boy has sales agreements with major online digital music retailers such as iTunes, Napster, LaLa and Liquid Digital, among others. In addition to single sales on the web, revenue streams are being created with ringtones and licensing agreements such as the one created with Stadium Entertainment Corp.

Stadium Entertainment’s mission is to aggregate the varying elements of unique entertainment projects that will attract consumer support, involve viable and practical corporate participation, and utilize the unique creative talents of award-winning, platinum and multi-platinum-selling performers in order to generate sales that will support a wide range of innovative creative projects, raise funds for worthy charitable causes, and bring new and talented individuals to the public’s attention.

The company has offices in Santa Monica, California and New York.
