RMD Entertainment Inks Global Distribution Deal With DVD Magazine Pioneer -- Block Star Entertainment

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Market Wire - Mar 21, 2006) -- RMD Entertainment Group (OTC: RMDG) announced a deal earlier today with Bay Area-based Block Star Entertainment that adds yet another dimension to their already extensive body of hip-hop driven content. Block Star Entertainment is best known for their groundbreaking development of a DVD magazine called The Bay Area Block Stars -- which gives the viewer a never before seen look at the underground hip-hop scene in the Bay Area and beyond. With interviews, studio sessions, and raw footage, Block Stars' DVD magazine uncovers face-to-face wisdom from hip-hop greats like Mobb Deep, Snoop, Crooked I, Cold Crush Brothers, Slum Village, T.I. and Grand Master Flash, to name a few.

The three-year deal not only gives RMD the exclusive right to globally market and distribute all Block Star related content and merchandise, but it also states that RMD has the right to license any and all Block Star related projects for use in other arenas like film, television, internet, and mobile. Bringing this type of cutting-edge material to the consumer and making it available is another example of how RMD Entertainment is developing new revenue streams while delivering a superior product to the consumer.

RMD CEO Giorgio Costonis had this to say; "In a constant effort to brand RMD Entertainment while delivering compelling and original content to the public, we feel that the alignment with Block Star Entertainment is one of our most effective deals to date. This opens up avenues for artist exposure and product awareness that are virtually untapped in any arena, especially hip-hop. We continue to position ourselves at the front of the pack with regard to the future of content and content delivery, Block Star just added a new dimension to our earning power for the next 36 months. The name is already well known in the Hip Hop arena so we expect significant earnings to be gained from this relationship."

Costonis later explained that the DVD magazine would be distributed in traditional formats by The Pickwick Group in Europe and Bungalo Records which is exclusively distributed by Universal Music and DVD distribution in North America.
