Cinematic Music Group and RED, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, are proud to announce a newly-signed partnership, planting the seed for a long and fruitful union between the two companies.
Cinematic Music Group, an independent label which now counts Joey Bada$$, Pro Era, Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, Fat Trel, and Cashius Green on its roster, has been operating for over a decade in almost every aspect of the urban music industry. Its C.E.O. Jonny Shipes is one of the leading voices and minds of the redesigned business model for independent music distribution and delivery. His artist development and management work- which has now covered a who's who of certifiably unique stars- has caught the ear and heart of the music industry, and his reputation as an incubator of new talent in the urban sector is nearly unparallelled.
By entering this collaboration with RED, Cinematic Music Group marks a glorious chapter in its history with one of the most innovative partnerships in today's musical landscape which will include label services, management, touring and merchandising. By retaining complete creative freedom of its operations and vision while working closely with the industry leader in music distribution and marketing outreach, Cinematic Music Group is once again leading the pack and paving the way for others to follow.
Fans and music lovers can look forward to upcoming releases from Joey Bada$$, Pro Era, Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, Fat Trel, and Cashius Green in the coming months.

The Kottonmouth Kings are currently flying high off the release of their new album "Mile High" which landed in stores last week via Suburban Noize Records. The album debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #35 and has been hailed as a return to form for the group by fans. The band has released their new video for the track "Get Out The Way" from "Mile High" online at .

"The song 'Get Out The Way' is a fusion of rip-hop and dubstep. We took some classic So-Cal punk and bridged that into a hip-hop dubstep section for the verses," says Brad X. "It was a 2012 twist on the rip-hop style we created. We like to push the boundaries and stay original with our music. Crowds go bananas when we play that song live."

Kottonmouth Kings are currently out on the road with Prozak, Big B and Moonshine Bandits, smashing crowds every night from coast to coast on The Mile High Tour.
