HIP HOP & RAP NEWS
NEW ARTIST USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO STAY CONNECTED TO AUDIENCES.
Up and coming artists, rappers, Duffy & Blue Pesos use social media to promote their new singles. Since we are in the digital age, YouTube, Instagram, SoundCloud, Twitter are prime platforms for creative artists to connect to audiences.
In this current climate, the need to be seen by an A & R is not as vital as it used to be. Back in the day, the goal was to find an A & R at his record label and give him a demo tape. Fast forward. We no longer have tapes! So, breaking into the music industry is totally different today for musicians. Why? The Internet. You can create your own music and break into the music industry by giving your music directly to the consumer. You can make this happen through Sound Cloud, YouTube, Instagram. You also have Itunes and Spotify.
Though a record label is not necessary for everyone, the main thing you need to do is establish a fan base around you and your music through social media to people who vibe with your type of music. Once you generate a following, record labels may notice your fanbase and impressive numbers and upon signing, can get your music more exposure.
Last ingredient, continue to hone your skills as an artist. You can check out Duffy & Bluepesos vlog on You Tube. They take the audience on their journey of musical discovery and creation.
Duffy & Blue Pesos, L.A. Rappers, started writing music a few years ago. They bonded through music and realized they have similar ideologies and styles.
