Kickstart the Rags 2 Racks CD and DVD! With your pledge, this project will reach unprecedented enormity! BIG BINKY+YOU = R2R WORLDWIDE!
Anyone who knows me can say that music is my life, and that my art form is dedicated to my city and my supporters. . .it's what I am called to, and it's who I'm called to be. My supporters have stood by me since my first album, They Didn't See Me Coming, stood ground with me on Hater Music Vol.1, and took a stand to back me like never before with Time 2 Eat. For the undying love and support, I'm eternally grateful.
Rags 2 Racks (R2R) is in the beginning stages of development, and I am asking everyone riding with me and my music to take an active part in this project. You won't be disappointed. Many have said that my albums become progressively better over time. I can only say that it's because I keep you, the listeners, in mind. Rags 2 Racks promises to be the hottest album I've produced in the history of recording. This project will be a special one. As my senior album, I'm releasing a complimentary R2R DVD. You'll see everything behind the music, along with never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage!
I need your loyalty as my friends, family, and supporters like never before. You'll be glad to know that I've assembled a team of close friends to help me out with my Kickstarter campaign. I need you to help out too. I'm working to raise $10,000 to complete the Rags 2 Racks album and DVD combo. The minimum goal we are setting here on Kickstarter is $5,000; however, our budget is $10,000. Kickstarter's "All or Nothing Funding" policy states that if the goal of $5,000 is not met at the deadline, no pledges apply (your pledge is refunded back to you), and I receive nothing. Therefore, it's important that we reach the minimum. It's all or nothing. Anything over the $5,000 we are able to keep, and all will be applied to the album and DVD, along with other budgetary items listed in the paragraph below. I've already began putting money into the project, but your help with take this album to the next level and beyond.
100% of the target goal amount will cover industry standard music production, recording, mixing, and mastering; mainstream artist feature(s); a nationwide marketing campaign (to include radio airplay); graphic art design and print media; music video production; the production costs for the first round of CDs and DVD made available to the general public; and, postage to mail certain rewards items to Backers. Not a penny will be wasted, nor any funds misappropriated.
Up until now, I've financed all of my albums with limited resources. Imagine how great Rags 2 Racks will be, especially with you helping to make this project a realty, while being a major part of its realization.
Me and a couple of others have worked to come up with lots of incentives and rewards to give those who contribute. Take a look over the rewards on the right-hand side, and please be generous in your giving. I'm depending on God and you to make this album one of the best the world has seen and heard.
Thank you in advance for your support and financial contribution. Together we can get the Rags 2 Racks project into the hands and ears of independent music lovers everywhere.
Waco and beyond. . .Let's get it in. . .
