Rap Battle (Broward County, Florida)
Organized by: Brian Roesch
****Please don't rush to fund this, to get this thing goin'. I still have to get permission at the Swap Shop, Lauderhill Mall, or some place willing to allow this rap battle to take place. I'm hoping by the end of October to burn some time getting the word out and funding, too. I'm testing the water before plunging in. South Florida has "nothing" when it comes to rap music.
To make it as a rapper in laid-back South Florida you have to travel out-of-state to enter rap battles, try to open for local shows, knock on record label doors; cast demos to local radio stations; DJ pools, nightclubs, etc. It's hard to be noticed, to get recognition----be heard----who sees your performance?
I want to bring an opportunity for more than a 100,000 rappers throughout Dade, Palm Beach, and Broward counties.
What's in it for me? Fun..., and since I'm running for Broward County Sheriff perhaps earn some "write-in candidate votes" for November's general election. The $50,000 will cover advertising, trophies; DJ with required equipment; insurance, security, fire marshal, electricity, location fee, processing, and parking; you can see why tickets for concerts are so expensive.
****Please, once again, don't rush to get this thing goin'. I still have to get permission at Swap Shop, Lauderhill Mall, or some place willing to allow this battle to take place. I'm hoping by the end of October to get the word out.****
