Hey all. So for several months i've been building buzz by winning freestyle competitions around London and releasing freestyles and singles within my area. Most people have been pushing me for a very long time, to drop a hip-hop mixtape. I'm only going to drop this one and promote it heavily to see if it causes any waves [at all] to see if this is worth my time. Historically British MC's dont get far, the only one that wasn't pop that went phenomenally huge that comes to mind is Slick Rick. So I'm taking this quite seriously. I need help and advice with a few things. I'm 19 and I'm working on the tape right now. My style is inherently lyrical, I'm quite versatile so I'll have a selection of tracks but for the most part the song style will be heavily focused on lyrics so I'm not really looking for any mainstream exposure. 1. First off BHW has alot of experienced members, regarding SEO and promotion, I want to have a solid plan before I drop the tape of how it is going to circulate and be promoted. I need help anyone? 2. Are there any up&coming singers or producers/sound engineers who would like to work with me? I can't promise any buzz internationally though.
