PR: DEMOS Documentary Film - An Independent Artist's Guide to Success

Hollywood, CA - January 11, 2011 - As the brainchild of Kareem Fort, C.O.O of HiPNOTT Records and Co-Owner of Cypher Lounge Radio, DEMOS is not just your average documentary film; it truly serves as an awe-inspiring guide to success for the struggling, intermediate, or well established independent artist. 

Joining forces with Kevin Nottingham, C.E.O of HiPNOTT Records and Hip-Hop Blogger, the dynamic duo has come together once again to breathe a breath of fresh air into a somewhat asthmatic industry with this powerful film.  As Executive Producers of the project, Kevin and Kareem also brought on Hip-Hop Artist and Co-Owner/Host of Cypher Lounge Radio, Hassahn Phenomenon as well as Velv Somersault as producers on the DEMOS project.


"How do I stand out from the countless other artists trying to make it? "Should I put out a mixtape or an album first?" "Do I need a booking agent?" "How do I build my brand and create an image?" "How can I get sponsorship for shows and tours?" These questions are the essence of DEMOS.  The answers are masterfully supplied by hip-hop legends, highly successful independent artists, and industry tastemakers covering the entire span of music culture. Narrated by the Grammy Award winning Hip-Hop Poet, J Ivy and featuring the likes of Talib Kweli, Naughty By Nature, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Carl Choi, Rapper Big PoohDa Beatminerz, Jean Grae, Tony Rock, Asya Shein, Statik Selektah, Dumbfoundead, Mac Miller, and a host of others, DEMOS will soon serve as the standard by which all How-To-Guide films should be measured.  Slated for a Summer 2011 release, DEMOS is guaranteed to be a game changer. Leading up to the release, the creators of DEMOS will be releasing a series of trailers, contests, and other details surrounding the film.  Stay tuned and for the time being...
Please Listen to Watch My DEMO.


Demos is a documentary that was created to educate and inspire the emerging hip-hop independent artist to accelerate their career. Its primary objective is to provide insight on the myriad of ways to establish or further enhance a successful independent music career. Industry veterans along with well established indie artists will share their experiences, advice and techniques providing an invaluable and unprecedented resource for the up and coming artist. From scholarly advice about branding and getting noticed to revelations about submitting content to media outlets, Demos is a film that should be on any musician's "must-see list!

Demos will expound upon how the industry has transformed over the years. Through the industry's overhaul, the artist needs to now empower and equip themselves with this essential information to maximize their chances of success. The music industry is ever-changing and to keep up, you must be well equipped; Demos is the tool to create a metamorphosis within an artist career.

Video: Macsen Apollo - "Heartbreaks"

Macsen Apollo is proud to release his first solo single and video “Heartbreaks”, off the upcoming album “Matters of the Heart”.

Macsen Apollo, out of Oakland, California has made a name for himself through his long-time rap career. As part of the V.E.R.A. Clique the MC has released two group albums to date and finally started working on his first solo effort in 2010. He has worked with well-known artists such as D' Wayne Wiggins of Tony Toni Tone, Joe Scudda of Justus League, Dahrio Wonder, APlus & Aagee (Compound 7) of the Heiroglyphics and Souls of Mischief and many more, and has earned respect for his outstanding drive and unique style.

The title “Heartbreaks” ,the first single off the album “Matters of the Heart”, speaks for itself. It is based on a true story about being in love only to find out that it is based on lies and deceit. The Song captivates through its honesty and realness, as well as a distinct beat, produced by Kev Choice. This is not a song just for the ladies, it speaks to every person that has been through the Heartbreak.

The Song was released digitally today, January 11th 2011, along with a video and can be purchased via www.MacsenApollo.com . The album “Matters of the Heart” is set to come out March 2011 and will be available on iTunes and many other online stores.
