I am producing a mix tape that is bringing a unique sound to Hip Hop combining impeccable lyricism and creative music.
(Quick Update: I have uploaded a full version of 4 of the 12 tracks so that you can hear some songs from the project. Click the "Updates" tab to hear these songs!)
This is a breath of fresh air to Hip Hop! My name is Dylan Wrobel though I go by the name of D-wroc and I am a teenage rapper from Brooklyn, New York, and recently completed my first mix tape. It is titled School House Wroc and is based off of the cartoon series from the 80's. It consists of 12 songs, rapped over beats that have never been used before from extremely talented producers.
Though we are asking for financial support for this music video, I want to let you know that you are doing more than simply giving money. You are responsible for the rebirth of an aspect of music that is becoming lost in an over-saturated and commercialized industry. This is not just another mix tape or CD, but rather a collage of all the important facets of life that matter to us painted through creative music. The songs cover everything from my reflections on growing up in New York to the political and social issues that I care about. Some songs are emotional and some are fun. Regardless of the subject matter, I believe in the ability of music to unify and empower. Whether you listen to rap or not, you will love this mix tape, for it tells a story. We can all relate to coming of age, to feeling conflicted, to having to overcome our own doubts in order to chase our goals, to wanting to have fun. Know that by supporting this project you are part of something much greater than funding a music video.
I am not following any trend, but bringing an original and unique sound to Hip Hop. Growing up multi-racial, in a household of musicians, and having been fortunate enough to travel to distant places, I have been influenced by the music and sounds of many cultures. I want to create inspiring and creative music and believe this mix tape does just this.
I started writing and performing my own poetry around the city when I was 14 years old. I soon realized that I wanted to rap. I started out recording my own music at home. Since then I have been recording original songs in a studio. I have met with various A&R's and received insight from record label representatives who have heard samples of my songs. I have even received paying jobs to work with song writers to write lyrics/raps for their records.
In order to get my name out there to as many people as possible, I must release my debut mix tape with an awesome music video. I want a music video that, concept-wise, paints a picture of where I am at in my career currently and where I hope to be in a few years.
Filming a video can be expensive and I need your support to fund this project. I believe we can work together to make this happen and guarantee you will all be proud to be a part of it. The funds will be used to hire a production team that has high quality lighting and camera equipment, as well as a talented director. I will also have to rent many of my own props. Finally, I will have to pay for the post-production such as editing the video clips.
Any contributions and support would be deeply appreciated. Whether you donate $10 or $1000, I will be sincerely grateful. You are helping me achieve my dream to make great music that will inspire those who listen. I cannot do this without you! There are various prizes, whether it be an autographed CD, a chance to appear in the music video, a private performance, or credit as an executive director. We can make this happen.
