Toussaint is a hip-hop artist creating 3 new mixtapes with your help and sending them off on a national press & radio campaign.
CLICK ON THE GREEN "BACK THIS PROJECT" PANEL TO THE RIGHT TO GET STARTED!
Garnering over a thousand free downloads, collaborating with musical talents across the country, and landing in RapReviews.com as #1 in the Top Ten Albums Of The Year has been a wild ride so far. Unfortunately, the monetary gain has been nil. Since Dr. Wylie, producer extraordinaire, and I teamed up we've released all our music for free.
The next step of our project includes setting up a national radio campaign through Co-sign Collective, a New York based radio promotions agency, allowing the next 3 mixtapes to receive college radio attention and national press. Printing tangible copies of each mixtape, having a website for reference, and teaming up with graphic designers are all necessary parts of the campaign project. If we raise more than our goal, I will be able to tour to the cities my backers request and put together an original solo album mixed & mastered by a professional studio.
What I look towards most is making you, the listener, a part of this project: feedback, tailored lyrics and beats, music video cameos, and more!... will definitely make this project the best yet.
Simple, just click on the green tab titled "BACK THIS PROJECT" to the right of the picture in the headline.
