Sports Campaign for Katrina Victims to Launch in City of World Champion Spurs

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- (Market Wire - Sep 02, 2005) - TRI Records is set to launch its EP (Extended Play) titled "Spirit of the Game." The CD, which is Hip-Hop artist J Fatz's (BMI) debut project includes performances by LeWayne Scott and Alisa Claridy, and bonus track "Its All About You" featuring seasoned veteran Dr. S. Love of Wil Hart & the Delfonics ("La La Means I Love You"). The release, slated for September 11, 2005, opening day of the NFL Season, harnesses the influence of Professional Athletes and the mass appeal of the Hip-Hop Culture to elicit participation in providing aid to those left helpless by Aids and Natural Disasters such as the Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina.

"I only write about real issues and situations that I have gone through. I wrote this song in early 2005, and to look at how relevant it is today lets me know that it was inspired writing," said rapper J Fatz, who's legal name is Jacar Perry.

"This situation with Hurricane Katrina has just increased the urgency of the plans that were already under way. Plans to call upon friend George Gervin (Spurs Legend), and others in Professional Sports to mount a campaign that will bring hope into peoples lives," said Pomp Braswell II, of the Canadian PGA Tour.

The campaign will be advertised on the Golf Channel, ESPN, and Radio Stations nationally starting with local San Antonio media. Some spots will begin to air as early as Monday Sept 5, 2005. The campaign highlights the Spirit of the Game (7 Sports Contest) which gives supporters the opportunity to win a 3-day trip for two to Super Bowl XL (40) in Detroit, MI, Feb 5, 2006. Supporters simply download the "Spirit of the Game" CD and name the seven sports mentioned in the song to become registered for the monthly giveaways and the Grand Prize.

Proceeds from the CD will be donated to the Red Cross and the Swing of Faith Foundation based in San Antonio, TX, to benefit Hurricane Katrina victims.
