About

Salute!

My name is General Heat and I've been an independent hip hop artist for the past 9 years in Atlanta, Georgia.  I've recently signed a distribution deal with a company called Tate Music Group that believed in my independent project, "The Terminator", enough to want to re-release it.  Even though I've inked the deal, there's still much more work that has to be done independently...

With you guys' help, we will throw the greatest album release party the world has ever been a part of! Below is a performance reel giving a small glimpse what's to come...

The release of the album will be on December 11th, 2012 so we're planning the release party for the first week of December.  For this to be the greatest album release party there a few things we need... This is where you come in!!!

With the proceeds from your pledges, we will book a venue for the release party, purchase promotional items to market the event, and ensure we have the best technical assistance possible.

We have some amazing rewards for you guys also.  They're all listed on the right, and I promise you will not be disappointed.  This isn't just an opportunity to support good music; it's a partnership!  You're now a part of history, a part of a world changing occurrence.  I appreciate you all!

 We're taking the world by storm!! Come join us in the eye of it!

Risks and challenges

In recording music, a huge worry is always going to be, "are they going to like it?" If the people don't like the product, then the entire work is in vain. Even in re-releasing my project, I still think about, "what if they don't like it?" Or, "what if enough people don't like it?"

Continuing to perfect my craft and my gift is key to overcoming this. Also, trusting that I've done a great enough job on the project.

Financially, a hurdle to be leaped over would be intelligently placing the funds... Questions such as "Did I plan enough?", "Am I cutting it too close?", "Is this a wise investment?" will arise.

Overcoming this one will strictly be my remaining committed to the plan set out. The music has been done, the research has been done. Now its time to put everything to action!

One last hurdle will be the opinion of others... In my ear suggesting what I should do with money that they didn't pledge and actually sounding logical about it.

The key to this is going to be my focus. I, and those on my team are fully capable of pulling this off. We're qualified!
