Colby Jeffers' Double Hip Hop Album!

$7,600

WHAT?

I'm ready to put out some new, fresh socially and spiritually conscious hip hop! Thus far, I've released two albums, "Change the World" and "Wizdome", the latter was funded through my previous Kickstarter campaign.

I'm now ready to release two new hip hop albums that show an increase in skill and capacity in my craft, but keep my spirit of uplifting, educating, and inspiring the listener through my lyrics.

THE ALBUMS:

1) LIT - A "lyrical-remix" album which takes popular, mainstream songs, and remixes the lyrics to infuse them with a spiritually conscious message.

2) Release the Power - A youth-focused collaborative album, featuring youth from my community, which centers on themes of spiritual empowerment.

HOW?

The Kickstarter funds will be used as follows:

$1000 - Recording

$2000 - Mixing & Mastering

$1500 - Music Videos (2 music videos)

$500 - Album Manufacturing

$500 - Marketing

$500 - Kickstarter Fees

STRETCH GOAL of $8000

I also have a stretch goal of $8000 which would help bring the albums to their FULL POTENTIAL! It would allow for:

$1500 - Two additional music videos

$500 - Extra marketing to ensure the songs reach the widest possible audience!

WHY?

Creating socially and spiritually conscious hip hop has become one of my biggest passions in life! I've got a lot of new content, and I want it to sound and look the best it possibly can! In order to get the quality I'm looking for, I need the proper funds to make that happen! :)

THE TEAM

All songs have been written. I have the instrumentals for each song. I'll be recording at TallCat Studios with a trusted recording engineer. I have a professional audio engineer, Karim Rushdy, who's agreed to mix and master the songs. I have the camera-man, Brian Roth, who's agreed to shoot the music videos. The only thing I need is the funding the pay for these services! Once I've obtained the funds I need, through your support, I'll be ready to put out two new albums of socially and spiritually conscious HOT FIRE! :)

MY WORK

To give you an idea of my work as an artist, here are a few of my previous music videos!

Let's do this thing!!

Much Love,

Risks and challenges

At this point in my career as a rap artist, I have very little doubt I'll be able to complete this project in a timely fashion, with the resources I'm requesting.

The only risks I can foresee are if any of my collaborators decide to back out of the project, which is a very minimal risk, as I have strong relationships with each one, and have a strong collective vision for these projects.

You can have full confidence in me and this project!!
