About this project

Why should you support us?

+ So you can kop a supah-fresh dope-style hip hop album for you, your friends and your fam (it's clean like Martin Luther King's dream! guaranteed!), really cool artwork, kickin' apparel, custom songs made just for you, unique concert experiences, tons o' love, and so much more!

+ Because we are dropping original new-era style hip hop beats on a classic tip laced with positive, conscious & uplifting rhymes, all for the passion and love of keeping real hip hop alive and thriving!

+ Because we are striving to better ourselves and our communities daily, and at the same time having a good time vibing and connecting with all y'all through the music!

+ Because we are an unsigned indie band with no financial backing/record label/etc. whatsoever! YOU are our record label!!

What do we want to do?

+ Swoop through smooth & drop "Rhyme4aReason" **LIVE** for YOU and ALL your WEST COAST homeys!

+ Connect, represent, and HIP HOP the house RIGHT with you and everybody down with GOOD music, straight Peace of Mind Crew style!

+ Jive, ride, vibe & provide you and yours a supremely uplifting, mind-stimulating and jiggified (think jiggy-fortified!) one-of-a-kind experience!!

How do we plan to do it?

Through your support and funding!

The *new* full-length "R4aR" album is already finished, created 100% independent DIY style, and ready to be released for your listening pleasure!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!

The hope is you will afford us whatever you can (no act is too small!) and give us the means to tour extensively behind this passion-driven, conscious & uplifting effort!

Please contribute, then share our project and our music with your favorite peoples! Get your mom, uncle James, the homey Jon & that sexy dime piece in your History class that you've been eyeing strong for the past 4 months in on this Peace of Mind action! They will each THANK YOU in turn, I guarantee it ;)

How will these funds be used?

To cover the costs of transportation, lodging, and food while on the road, as well as to make a substantial investment in our promotions & merchandising (cd's, flyers, lyrical album booklets, posters, stickers, apparel, etc.) to get the word out proper while on tour!

How far along is our project?

Right there on the brink! As soon as this fundraiser reaches its goal (and surpasses it! *wink wink* that's right I know you guys n' gals gonna make this happen!), we can begin budgeting & scheduling for our tour and then hit the road accordingly, God-willing, early spring of 2012!

Who in the world are we?!

Your friendly neighborhood MC, the PAKMAN, and chill producer extraordinaire WUNDA! Plus the homeys Dirck, Changer, DJ Kenny K, and Melanie as our live-band support when their schedules allow it.

Please spread the word and let's get this project successfully funded! I promise, soon as we cruise through your hale (hometown), you'll be glad you did ;)

ps. Just a friendly reminder for those who may not yet know, this project, like every Kickstarter project, is ALL-OR-NOTHING, so let's ALL make sure NOTHING of this project falls short, aight?! Haha, THANK YOU!!
