PEAAAAAACE!!!!!   RoQy TyRaiD, here!!!  Man, things have been absolutely crazy, as of late. For those who may have been following me on this journey to complete my 3rd project, my first OFFICIAL ALBUM The Dichotomy of RoQy TyRaiD, you're aware of the nonstop work and dedication towards providing something worthwhile for the Hip-Hop culture.

Along the way, you may have noticed a few key names and phrases pop up:  SXSW '12 / '13 / '14, Wake Up Show with Sway and Tech (and DJ REVOLUTION!!) , ThisIs50.comAllhiphop.com (top 50 underground artists of 2014 in the world!), New Times Magazine, Interviews, Tours and a few more..   Needless to say, things have been getting pretty interesting. Due to these various events, I have decided to kickstart this project's completion and release into high gear.. And I need you to get in on the action.. 

...Because sometimes being your own sole investor, promoter, p.r., and manager just doesn't cut it !!

Here is a brief synopsis of my art and the projected direction of The Dichotomy of RoQy TyRaiD, for those in need of an education!

Let's use some previously released joints as examples of what you can expect with my next official release.

You, my friend, can...

  • EXPECT DOPE, TOP NOTCH LYRICISM!! 
  • EXPECT MORE OF THAT FUN, REFRESHING "HIP-HOP" SOUND!! 
  • EXPECT MORE HIGH-ENERGY, RIOT MUSIC!!!!! 
  • EXPECT MORE SMOOTH, "FEEL GOOD" MUSIC TO LOSE YOURSELF TO

As an emcee, I strive to master all forms; be it introspective songs such as Children Of Men.. (mixtape joint from New Millennium Man) .. culturally analytical songs such as "Her Bourne Identity" . 

NASTY, lyrically unparalleled displays of showmanship such as..

.. or social anthems such as THIS

WHICH EVEN MADE DJBooth.Net's TOP SONG LIST !!!!

things are looking up!!!
things are looking up!!!

Hell, SO DID I.. 

Really can't wait for you all to check out this album. The music and visuals for it are by far my best work, yet.  So, please pledge and post about this on your social networks. YOU are needed, in order to help release this laborious project.. the right way..

"What will you do with the campaign funds, President TyRaiD?"

Here is a break down..

  • Recording, Mixing, and Mastering - $1,000
  • Music Videos - $500
  • Artwork by Restless Ghost - $500
  • Initial Marketing Expenses - $600+
  • Initial Physical Copies for Vendors - $400
  • Tunecore Album Setup - $250

Now, while the cost break down is over the initial goal, we want to meet a minimum marker of $1,000, which will be split between Marketing Services and setting up the album through Tunecore, which will allow the album to be made available WORLDWIDE!

After this, we will institute a STRETCH GOAL to cover the remaining $2,250!

REACH THE STRETCH GOAL AND I WILL RELEASE A NEW MUSIC VIDEO AHEAD OF SCHEDULE!!

Any Additional Funding Goes Towards additional visuals, "The Dichotomy Tour" 's travel expenses, as well as additional merchandise + marketing.

Again, sometimes us indie artists can't do everything ourselves.. it brings overwhelming joy knowing there's people who still care about the quality of Hip-Hop music.

PLEDGE TO THE CAMPAIGN! 

THE CULTURE IS BACK!!!

- RoQy TyRaiD

Risks and challenges

To be completely honest, the only mishaps that could possibly occur would be shipping orders taking a couple weeks longer than expected. Following the success of the campaign, allow for a week to a week 1/2 for orders to start processing. Please make it an effort to EMAIL ME your personal shipping info to RoQyTyRaiDMedia@ gmail as a way to double check and make sure I have your shipping and contact info; this includes country info.

The latest you will receive your projects, should the world decide to abruptly end, would be December 2015.

Should you encounter product that is broken or malfunctioning, ship it back and receive a fresh new copy!! Everyone who participates will be taken care of and that is my guarantee!

The only way there could be an issue with the project itself would be pressing up the work. I have an alternate resource to use in the event my primary source falls short. This train cannot be stopped, baby!
