West Coast Legends Come Together For the Largest Hip Hop Industry Mixer

In Breaking News on September 6, 2010 at 11:45 pm

Chocolate Crushes presented The 3rd Annual Western Hip Hop Conference at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California on September 4, 2010. The Western Hip Hop Industry Mixer has established a reputation for bringing together one of the largest collaborations of America’s vocal artists, musicians, dance crews, DJ’s, rappers, all tied into a unique fashion show delivery with the hip hop genre in mind.

One of the shows highlights was the panel of industry experts sharing information that could potentially assist artists in developing their skills and professionalism within the music industry. The panel included moderator, CEO of Indie Power Jay Warsinske, sitting alongside panel members Artist Lil Zane, Artist Dresta, ASCAP’s Alonzo Robinson, Interscope Recording Artist James Love, Producer Sir Jinx, Producer Kadosha, and Executive Rick Valenzuela. Panel members also spoke on the importance of copyrighting, branding originality and understanding the fundamentals of the music business. The panel also spoke on the beauty of being independent and owning 100% of their work.  “It’s all about strategy and team work, what artist wouldn’t want to be able to sell 100,000 records and make more than a couple dollars off each record they sell? When you are independent and own your own music you set the price on what you make. Your destiny is in your hands”, Zane said.

The event was hosted by Everybody Radio and Dj’s Battle and ACE were on deck to keep the euphoria of nonstop entertainment going throughout the show.  K9Compton of Full Deck Records and Latrina Blackberry were the evenings supporting presenters.

“The talent tonight was raw and uncut with a little artist development, marketing and branding I can see some of the talent here today making it to the mainstream real soon, if it’s where they want to be”, said an A & R spokesperson.

In coordinating The Western Conference Hip Hop Industry Mixer and in honor of the talented artists that were showcased, Latrina Blackberry, CEO of Chocolate Crushes pledged six scholarships in the events name to Musicians Institute out of Hollywood, California. With the hopes of providing these six hopefuls with the technical knowledge and professional skills needed to survive as an independent artist and performing artist in today’s music world. Musicians Institute is the world’s leading music school, providing quality education and hands-on training in music.

West Coast Legends such as Shock G, Big 2 DA, Goldie Locs, DUB C, The Chill, Daddy V, ATT Will, MC Eiht, Zoo Life, Jayo Felony, Young Blacc, BG Knockout, Frank Nitty,  Dre Sta tha Gangsta, The Real Rick Ross and more came out in support of this great event.

Artist Lil Zane and MC Eiht astounded the crowd with two incredible surprise performances and Comedian/Actor Shang graced the stage as well as Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns, Lj Brown.

Cornelius Grant of the Temptations was also in attendance.

In speaking with Blackberry of Chocolate Crushes about the success of her 3rd annual event, she went on to thank all of the sponsors and vendors, Musician Institute, Serato, EOTM Radio & Media, Indie Power, Urban Soul, Freeway Enterprises, Hood as it Gets Records, Ace Colby Entertainment, New Era Teens Clothing and More. “When we come together and work together in the end we are successful together”, said Latrina Blackberry.

Listen up! If you’re not advertising on Internet radio, you could be missing out!!

In Marketing on April 1, 2010 at 6:00 am


According to a 2004 study by media research finns Arbitron Inc. and Edison Media Research, internet radio has an estimated weekly audience of near|y 19 million Americans and growing. Not only are people listening in online, they’re also buying online.

Monthly internet broadcast (radio and video) users might represent only 26 percent of the online audience, but they accounted for an estimated 42 percent of online spending. Advertisers can reach an audience that’s in listening and shopping mode.

Thinking of advertising on internet radio? Here are a few tips based on audience demographics and behaviors:

* Test a new offer. About 28 percent of internet broadcast users are likely tO try a new product or service vs. 17 percent of nonbroadcast users. So launching a new product through internet radio could give your initial sales a boost. You’ll also likely receive immediate customer feedback or testimonials to help you further refine your product or service and marketing pitch.

* Appeal to a “hip” audience. Although the age range of broadcast users is 12 to 54 years old, the highest concentration of users falls into the 12- to 34-year-old group. They are a technologically savvy group in tune with DVDs, cell phones, messaging, video games and other media products. Communication gadgets will sell well to this crowd. Yet, even if you aren’t promoting these types of devices, tailor your advertisement’s message to address the concerns, needs and wants of a sophisticated young audience.

* Use a URL in your ad. Forty-two percent of the internet radio audience has listened in while shopping or researching a product or service online, so invite them to your website. To sweeten the offer and track your radio advertising results, promote a particular page on your site, such as http://www.company.com/radio–just don’t make it too long, or people can’t remember it. You can use web analytics to track page traffic and also embed code in the links on this page to track leads and sales from it as well.
