S&H Public Relations Gives Aspiring Artists, Entrepreneurs a Blueprint for PR Success in New e-Book

Los Angeles, CA, January 15, 2013 – Carey Harris, co founder of S&H Public Relations, is ready to share his expertise with a new generation of publicity seekers.  The PR industry has been rewarding to Harris who established S&H PR in early 2011 as a medium to provide aspiring Hip Hop artists with cost effective publicity.  During that time, Harris realized that young artists were completely oblivious to the power of PR and decided to release “The Guide to Financial Success Using P.R.”, an easily accessible e-book containing the basics of independent publicity.

With an ever growing independent music scene, artists are solely depending on social media to promote themselves but know very little about what a legitimate PR campaign can do for them.  To this point, Harris says, “Young artists who have grown up with social media can’t see beyond Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the likes to promote themselves.  Sure, these platforms are great and necessary but should only be one small part of a full scale publicity campaign, not their only means of exposure.”

The Guide to Financial Success Using P.R. Was written with aspiring artists in mind but can be used by anyone interested in learning about self promotion.  Harris concluded, “You can pay someone thousands to do publicity for you or you can spend a little time learning the game yourself and reap the rewards.  The ball is in your court.”

The Guide to Financial Success Using P.R. Can be downloaded as an e-book on Amazon or at S&H Public Relations.

Complete S&H Winners Interview MaG G & Rello Hill

Everyone wants to be heard and S&H is honored to be a “Mountain Top”. These are the answers from our winners, Give a listen to the pulse of the underground because S&H Public Relations is here to give voice to our own Hip Hop Community. Here are the answers to the questions we asked from our Nobel Contestants, Mag G and Rello Hill.

When did you know you wanted to be an entertainer? Give some examples of experiences that shaped your path.

Mag G: I think I’ve always known I wanted to be an entertainer. I would freestyle in my mom’s bedroom after watching Video Music Box, making up new songs. I’d add my own verses to other emcees songs coming up. It was just what I always wanted to do.

Rello Hill: I knew that I wanted to be a performer the first time I heard Distortion of Static by The Roots. In 4th grade, I performed that song at my talent show and I rocked the crowd, or I thought I did. Furthermore, throughout high school I was a teen-advocate at a youth organization in Philly where I used to perform throughout Philadelphia High Schools. That indescribable feeling that you get is like no other; it’s like a natural high you get during your set,

Where did you grow up?

Feel free to name names of who you’re connected with in your hood and the industry.

Mag G: I was born and raised in the Bronx, Right on Creston Ave. For the most part, I kept to myself. I had a small circle of friends growing up, but people started moving away. The neighborhood got dangerous. If there was an industry name to mention, it would be Buckwild. He saw what I was doing and gave me some guidance early on. Going to his studio and seeing the Biggie “Life after Death” platinum plaque on his wall was a game-changer for me.

Rello Hill: I grew up in Philadelphia but relocated to Greenville, NC in 2009 after                         graduating college. While in Philadelphia, I had a chance to work with James Poyser (The Roots member), Corey Latif Williams (former Motown recording artist and song writer) and Zukhan Bey (producer of Ludacris “Pussy Popping” and Jim Jones “Ballin”‘). Khrysis (1/8 of 9th Wonder’s Soul Council)

If you could do your own Intro, How would it go?

Example: Coming to the stage is…

Mag G: an artist who makes music from his heart and soul and continues to move the culture of Hip-Hop forward.

Rello Hill: Representing NC by the way of North Carolina I bring you Rello Hill

Name your influences and why?

Mag G: There are so many to choose from. Jay-Z, B.I.G., Kanye West, Nas, Andre 3000, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Common, Lupe Fiasco…and that’s just Hip-Hop. Nirvana, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan…I could go on and on.

Rello Hill: I have many influences but the two that stick out the most are Andre 3000 and my brother Jamar Davis. I said Andre 3000 because if there had to be a model artist, it would have to be him. It starts from the way he rides the beat, the emotions he conveys, concepts, diction, syntax etc. To me he has to be the dopest, hands down.

I said my brother because he taught me everything I know about the streets. He molded my perception to be true to myself no matter what it may cost me. He kept me focused and well grounded. I would like to think my confidence and demeanor was molded by him. What up Mar!!

Name some accomplishments big and small that you’re proud of.

 Mag G: Being engaged, I believe, gets the top vote. Doing this interview as a finalist in the National MC Contest is an accomplishment. Getting selected by Talib Kweli to be on his Community mix tape, Being selected by AMP from Jamla/IWWMG to be a part of his compilation. Recording at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn was amazing. Performing with Torae at S.O.B.’s in 2007 is always a highlight of mine and graduating high school with a scholarship.

Rello Hill: I’m proud that I graduated from College with Cum Laude honors with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I’m proud that I’m a 3x All-American in boxing with the silver medal in nationals. I’m proud that I put out my first complete mixtape “Rellovant.” Shit, I ‘m proud that throughout all the obstacles many of us undergo growing up in the inner-city, that I have a chance to talk about what I’m proud about.

Freestyle a short flow (6) bars] regarding your experience with our contest.

Mag G : Appreciation is in order/Bring in a recorder and some bottled water for the performance that I’m giving that’s made to order/Shout-out to S&H for the great chance I was given/And shout-out to Rello and Yahzilla/We all gifted/

Rello Hill: The obstacles of brick walls I break down to build up the fortress of these architects I sketched out, this crown is for the taking so I reach out my arms length,  defensive offense, cut from a different cloth my stitch is flawless. A young educated brother separated the apple from the Eve with no paw prints

Favorite quote or rhyme.

Mag G : Eagles and flags/American style/While in our world/The ghetto stays incredibly foul/Watching for paint chips/Don’t want no lead in yo’ child/But them gangstas put lead in ya’ child/” – Nas “No Ideas”

Rello Hill: Oh yes I love her like Egyptian, want a description, my royal highness So many plusses when I bust that there can’t be no minus Went from yellin crickets and crows, bitches and hoes to queen thangs, over the years I been up on my toes and yes I seen thangs like Kilroy, chill boi because them folks might think you soft talkin like that, man fuck them niggaz I’m goin off and comin right back, like boomerangs when you throw em With these old ghettopoems, Bankhead is better for em When they can let they throw em, down from hitchikin and bitin niggaz until the temple they call the body, now everybody got it Had it, talked about it amongst they friends Comin around my crew lookin Jazzy, wanna pretend like you Ms. Goodie, Four-Shoes, even Bo knew, that you got poked like accupuncture patients while our nation is a boat Straight sinkin, I hate thinkin that these the future mommas of our chillun, they fuckin a different nigga every time they get the feelin to, I’m willin to go the extra kilo-meter just to see my senorita get her pillow on the side of my bed where no good ever stay House and doctor was the games we used to play but now it’s real Jazzy Belle.. ~Andre 3000

Who would you like to work with and why?

Mag G: I actually have a mini bucket list of cats I’d give my left hand (not the right, that’s the dominant hand) to work with. But, if I had to pick one, it would be Pharrell. I just think sonically and musically, we’d be able to make some really incredible music.

Rello Hill: Old or New? A veteran that I would like to work with is Andre 3000 because he’s my favorite artist. It would be fucking retarded not to work with my rap idol. A new artist that I would like to work with is Kendrick Lamar; that homie has a gift.

How will you know you’ve made it?

Mag G: When I can quit this 9 to 5. Jon Favreau had a quote in Esquire Magazine that went something like, “I don’t have to look at how much things cost on the menu when I’m ordering food anymore.” Yeah, something like that.

Rello Hill: I don’t want to make it because then I will no longer enjoy the ride getting there.

 Name any enterprises you would like to promote, like web sites, social links etc.

Mag G:  I’m currently finishing up my “Freedom” project, hosted by Mick Boogie and sponsored by RCRDLBL.com I am working on this AMP compilation and a project with producer/emcee Maverick, You can find my catalog at mrmag.bandcamp.com, hit me on twitter@MrMaG254, or get at me on Face book at www.facebook.com/thisismag

Also, if anybody is in NYC, I perform as part of the Melting Pot Band, every 2nd Wednesday of the month at Pianos (158 Ludlow St, New York, NY) in the upstairs lounge. The show is free and starts at 7PM.

Rello Hill: Follow me on Twitter@Rellohill

 Shout Outs

Mag G: I just want to shout-out everyone who’s supported me and the music. My fiancé Tiffany Rose, my brother D, my mother, the Melting Pot crew and a quick shout-out to Jason Thome at Converse.

Rello Hill: I just want to give a shout out to SNHPR.com, HipHopwired.com, Torae and Big Pooh for the good look. Keep putting and promoting good music.

 

Journey Brave Looks to Unify People through His Music

In an Election Year Rife With Racially Divisive Politics, Atlanta Rapper Journey Brave Looks to Unify People through His Music

Los Angeles, CA, February 2012


Amidst this year’s polarized political landscape characterized by presidential hopefuls flaunting their classism and ethnic biases as campaign platforms, rap artist Journey Brave seeks to bring a message of unity through his self titled debut album “Journey Brave”. Aptly named to encourage listeners to travel bravely on their journey through life, Brave believes that an artist’s responsibility is to empower those with an open ear and mind. While so many other artists choose to stay silent regarding the current social climate, Journey Brave felt this to be a perfect time to speak up and has scheduled to release his album on February 18th, during Black History Month.

”I’m releasing the album during Black History Month because I take pride in being a part of a people who have overcome so much. I also view The Civil Rights movement as a metaphor that represents the internal struggle for peace and equanimity in all mankind. This is what ‘Journey Brave’ is about,” says Journey. With an eleven song offering covering themes such as determination, success, love, and the illusion of fame, Journey aims to speak to the best in all of us. While he’s aware that today’s average rap fan may not be accustomed to Hip Hop music with a message, he also refuses to insult them by assuming socially conscious rap is over their heads. While sonically, Journey’s sound and delivery is steeped in the classic Hip Hop tradition of “beats and rhymes”, he’s confident that his message will appeal to the young and old, Black and white, rich and poor, rap fan or not, and everyone in between.

Journey Brave’s self titled album is available at:
http://journeybrave.bandcamp.com
Watch the video for “The People”:
http://www.youtube.com/user/journeybrave

The album will soon be available at all popular online music stores such as iTunes, Amazon, and Rhapsody.

Hip Hop Producer Silent Titan Features Alumni Rapper from Legendary Group

Hip Hop Producer Silent Titan Features Alumni Rapper from Legendary Group, Organized Konfusion

Los Angeles, CA, November 2011 – Following his full length debut, “For the Rest of My Days”, released through Fat Beats Distribution last September, Hip Hop producer, The Silent Titan, drops his second single,”So Exquisite” featuring Prince Po from the legendary Hip Hop group, Organized Konfusion. Aptly titled, the song allows Prince Po to wax poetic about his status in the game as well as his impeccable mic skills. With thumping bass and crisp snares permeating the track, The Silent Titan reminds listeners that the classic Hip Hop sound is alive and well. The Silent TitanPrince Po

For the past few years, The Silent Titan has been making a name for himself in his native Australia. However, since his U.S release dropped two months ago, he’s been approached by many underground heavyweights stateside who are now eager to collaborate with the Titan. With his second single, he’s confident that an American fan base is slowly growing. On working with Prince Po, he says, “I was incredibly lucky to be able to collaborate with an artist of this caliber. Po’s contribution to Rap music is major. He’s respected and continues to rock stages internationally.”

“So Exquisite” will be promoted as a single starting November 14, 2011. Look for the album, “For the Rest of My Days”, at independent retailers across the U.S. as well as online at iTunes, Amazon, Napster, and Spotify.

The 8 Big Mistakes Indie Rappers Make

The 8 Big Mistakes Indie Rappers Make

S&H Public Relations and Hip-Hop Wired Join Forces to Help Independent Rap Artists Achieve Success

Los Angeles, CA, September 2011 – Rappers come a dime a dozen and the majority will never have their music see the light of day. Still, those who do succeed follow certain basic rules that allow them to get closer to their goal. To that point, S&H Public Relations, a PR agency which specializes in promoting Hip Hop artists, and Hip-Hop Wired, one of the internet’s premier Hip Hop and R&B magazine, have partnered to create a weekly advice column for independent rappers. Titled “Please Listen to my Demo”, this series starts September 7, 2011 on HipHopWired.com and kicks off with The 8 Big Mistakes Indie Rappers Make. Here’s an abridged version:

1. Unrealistic Expectations
… Don’t think for a minute that the successful artists you look up to are doing nothing but chillin’ 24/7, countin’ their paper, and hookin’ up with groupies. A lot of hard work goes into making this look easy to you…

2. Lack of Creativity
…Does anything about your music make you stand out or are you just copying what everyone else is doing? Genuine talent and creativity are key. That’s what will ultimately separate one-hit wonders from timeless acts.

3. No Knowledge of the Music Industry
…The industry is changing almost everyday. You need to understand this game and what drives it…

4. No Showmanship
… Do you know how to entertain an audience so that they’ll want to see you again? If you’re ever lucky enough to make a name for yourself, your showmanship can propel you to great success and help you maintain longevity…

5. Mediocre Mix
…Producing and recording is one thing, mixing and mastering is another. Just because you know how to make beats doesn’t mean you have an ear for mixing…

6. Sloppy First Impressions
…You may not have a million dollar budget but making a good impression doesn’t cost a thing when you take genuine pride in your art…

7. Poor Online Presence
…Without an online presence, you can officially count yourself out of having any chance of success in this game…

8. No Marketing Plan
…So you got your music sounding right, your image is on point, and your online presence looks solid. But how will people know you exist? A little research into how to coordinate a basic marketing campaign will get you to the next level and closer to your goal…

Sebastien Elkouby, co-founder of S&H Public Relations, says, “Millions want to be successful rappers but have no idea how to get there. This series of article doesn’t promise to make anyone a star but it will help aspiring artists put the odds in their favor. Collaborating with a well respected site like Hip-Hop Wired will allow the message to reach a wider audience of up-and-comers.”

Why New Rapper Madd Mary Will Reassure You That There is More to Female Rap Than Nicki Minaj and Kreayshawn

6 Reasons Why New Rapper Madd Mary Will Reassure You That There is More to Female Rap Than Nicki Minaj and Kreayshawn

Los Angeles, California, September 2011 – While the average music fan is led to think that female rappers don’t exist beyond Kreayshawn and Nicki Minaj, Hip Hop artist Madd Mary counters such belief by releasing her first EP, “The Kitchen Press”. Instead of relying on manufactured controversy, image over substance, subpar production, and second-rate lyrics, Mary reassures Hip Hop fans that rap music is safe in her hands. Unafraid to challenge the mainstream perception that female rappers have little to offer beyond sex-appeal and simple dance music, Mary follows in the footsteps of Hip Hop icons like MC Lyte and Lauryn Hill who have created timeless music.

To back up her claims, she’s come up with 6 reasons why you should be on the look out for her music.

1. “I don’t have a man writing my lyrics like so many female rappers often do. I’m an adult and I can express myself by myself.”

2. “I can get my point across without being foul-mouthed. I leave that to more immature rappers who haven’t developed their vocabulary yet.”

3. “I won the “Best Female Rapper” award at the 2003 N.Y Int’l Music Festival off the strength of my mixtape. Not too many artists win awards without an official album already released.”

4. “I give my listeners balance. My music is thought-provoking and entertaining without sacrificing one for the other.”

5. “Me and my cousin, who is also a female, produced a third of the EP. How many females do you know who rap and produce their own music? Not many.”

6. “This EP gives you just a little taste of what the full length album will sound like. You haven’t heard anything yet.”

To conclude, Mary adds, “Most of these corny rappers are not on my level but I challenge them to a rap battle any day just to make a point. Sure, they’re famous and successful but lack the most important element for any real rapper – skills! You can only hide behind your money and image for so long ladies!”

To prove that such boasting isn’t just a ploy to profit off hype and sensationalism, Madd Mary’s EP is available as a free download at WhoIsMaddMary.com. Look out for a full length album as well as the documentary, “Diary of a Female Rapper” in early 2012. To get the latest info on Madd Mary’s projects, visit her at www.facebook.com/whoismaddmary and follow her on Twitter at @whoismaddmary. Also, check out the new Madd Mary interview at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlYK68xEgeQ.

About Madd Mary

In 2001, Madd Mary crafted an 11-track demo that garnered the attention of urban powerhouse label Def Jam. After negotiations fell apart, the disappointed but determined MC dropped a mixtape that would win her the “Best Female, Hip-Hop” award (’03 N.Y Int’l Music Festival), an Underground Music Award nomination and a nod from the editors of Billboard Magazine to showcase in the Discmaker’s Independent Music World Series finals (’06). Mary’s current EP, “The Kitchen Press”, is most notable for its absence of the sexually explicit lyrics so prevalent among other rappers. Armed with raw talent and an indomitable will, Madd Mary is determined to lead a new generation of independent MC’s-both male and female, into a brave new world.

Australian Producer Creates a Soulful Sound

Australian Producer Creates a Soulful Sound that Speaks to a Global Audience Thirsty for Timeless Hip Hop Music

Los Angeles, CA, September 2011 – Following the success of the Australian release, “For the Rest of My Days”, The Silent Titan aka Tomasz Charuk, prepares to make new fans with the U.S release of his debut album. Distributed through legendary Fat Beats Records, the album that Australian media praised for its refreshing blend of soulful Hip Hop beats and jazz infused melodies is now set to inspire American audiences.The Silent Titan

Tomasz Charuk, who has been making a name for himself in his native Australia for the past ten years, is eager to see how U.S Hip Hop fans will take to his sound. “I wanted to create an album that couldn’t be pin pointed or linked directly to one corner of the globe”, he says. Often compared to iconic producers such a Pete Rock and Madlib, Tomasz simply sees it as a matter of building on the tradition that the greats have established. He comments, “As a producer who has great honor and devotion for Hip Hop culture, I’m here to express to the world through my music with what these pioneers have taught me through their production. The sheer volume and quality of music that they have both created is something to behold and aspire to without a doubt.”

While For the Rest of My Days is mostly an instrumental album, it does feature guest appearances by underground heavyweights such as Oh No and MED (Stones Throw Records) as well as Prince Po from Organized Konfusion fame. Rounding out the project is vocalist Jace Excell, a Brooklynite now calling Australia home, who lends his smooth harmonies to two tracks. Regarding collaborating with such respected artists, Tomasz says, “I was incredibly lucky to be able to collaborate with artists of this caliber on the record. These are artists I’ve been listening to for years. As I had envisioned, they all highlighted my production enormously and I hope to collaborate with all of them again in the near future.”

For the Rest of My Days drops August 30, 2011 and includes a bonus track not previously available. Look for the album at various independent retailers across the U.S. as well as online at iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.

Los Angeles, July 2011 – After years navigating through the ups and downs of the music business, Los Angeles based rapper Madd Mary has finally released her first EP, “The Kitchen Press”. Confident in her ability to bring substance and creativity to an industry saturated by sex, violence, and over-the-top materialism, Madd Mary is willing to bet that what she brings to the table will make any true Hip Hop connoisseur a fan.

Inspired by Hip Hop icons like MC Lyte and Lauryn Hill who have come before her, Madd Mary has no problem giving these luminaries their due respect. However, she takes issue with most of today’s female rappers who she says, “Do nothing to push the art form forward or give the listeners something unique.” To prove her point, she’s come up with 6 reasons why she’s better than any current female rappers:

1. “I don’t have a man writing my lyrics like so many female rappers often do. I’m an adult and I can express myself by myself.”

2. “I can get my point across without being foul-mouthed. I leave that to more immature rappers who haven’t developed their vocabulary yet.”

3. “I won the “Best Female Rapper” award at the 2003 N.Y Int’l Music Festival off the strength of my mixtape. Not too many artists win awards without an official album already released.”

4. “I give my listeners balance. My music is thought-provoking and entertaining without sacrificing one for the other.”

5. “Me and my cousin, who is also a female, produced a third of the EP. How many females do you know who rap and produce their own music? Not many.”

6. “This EP gives you just a little taste of what the full length album will sound like. You haven’t heard anything yet.”

As evidence that such boasting isn’t simply a ploy to profit off hype and sensationalism, Madd Mary’s EP is available as a free download at WhoIsMaddMary.com. She is currently working on a full length album as well as a documentary titled, “Diary of a Female Rapper”.

About Madd Mary

Madd Mary is an L.A. based rapper dedicated to making Hip Hop music that is both intelligent and entertaining. In 2001, she crafted an 11-track demo that garnered the attention of urban powerhouse label Def Jam. After negotiations fell apart, the disappointed but determined MC dropped a mixtape that would win her the “Best Female, Hip-Hop” award (’03 N.Y Int’l Music Festival), an Underground Music Award nomination and a nod from the editors of Billboard Magazine to showcase in the Discmaker’s Independent Music World Series finals (’06). Mary’s current EP, “The Kitchen Press”, is most notable for its absence of the sexually explicit lyrics so prevalent among other rappers. Armed with raw talent and an indomitable will, Madd Mary is determined to lead a new generation of independent MC’s-both male and female, into a brave new world.
