Posted by Emanuel Wallace at Tuesday, January 11th, 2011 at 1:11PM :: Email this article :: Print this article

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.
