thanx for the feedback playboy...but if i told u how much money i already spent promoting these 2 singles (Hands Up and Gangsta) u would either smack me or ask what the hell i was doing wrong?...i have the mixtape thing going a lil bit (google my name) but im trying to establish a decent buzz in radio land before i release my album...i have been comparing my sonics to other commercially released material and although i have a better sound than most indies...its not at a major level (which is what i want)...since reading this forum...i've found out that alot of people have atleast 10-15k on their front end...all i have is a rode mic right into the vs2480...i study the best sounding rappers out there and i definitely fall short...i have an independent label...but we are well funded and wish to compete on a major level...i dont want to cut corners on vocal chains or beat tracking cuz in the new year i plan on being that dude that everyone is talking bout that "CAME OUT OF NOWHERE"...I have a promotional budget in place...the 20k is for production and building a legacy.
