Know your worth. That’s the motto that artists like Curtiss King are now taking to heart when it comes to supplying their music to the people. Finding creative ways to attain listeners, promote and sale music has become increasingly difficult due to growing involvement of the internet and the piracy and lowered attention span it brings with it. This tougher climate has led artists to devalue their talent and their product. Inspired by Nipsey Hu$$le’s grassroot marketing #Proud2Pay Campaign, West Coast rapper Curtiss King released his 10 Year Anniversary $100 Game Box to celebrate his ten year indie grind. Designed by Milk Chamberlain, the Box Set includes:
53 songs (4 CDS) = $40.00
29 Music Videos (DVD) = $25.00
Three Curtiss King Posters = $15.00
Autographed 13 Page Booklet = $10.00
Curtiss King Socks = $10.00
Tanya Morgan‘s Rubber Souls has officially dropped, and to celebrate those who made the effort of purchasing a hard copy, the NY duo released this mellow tune to the masses. Some of the lyrics (“Live at home, building a model death star / The style’s angelic, stealing your Reptar,”) give “Ain’t Playin” a feeling of reminiscence, and the beat underlines this with well-polished boom bap.
