[After the recent success of our "True Grit" contest ended with 20 unsigned artists getting widespread exposure, SOHH's Marketing Assistant Joe Bush gives you another Top 5 reasons to score a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in our "One Shot" contest.]
1. Number One Spot
My first reason why you should sign up for the One Shot deal is because it gives you a chance to put yourself on a platform where over eight million monthly visitors can hear your music and see your face and brand.
2. RESPECT My Conglomerate
The second reason is because of the fact that your face will be associated with the highly respected, no pun intended, RESPECT magazine. Because of hip-hop culture, its brand and popularity, a lot of people around the country will be able to see your face in a magazine. Printed. That's something that a lot of unsigned hip-hop artists can't do just for $25. [The contest will be spotlighted] in RESPECT's magazine's 2012 issue. Look out for that and check out RESPECT magazine now for the submission advertisement that we have. You will see we have a great relationship with RESPECT.
3. Fly High Club
The third reason why you should consider doing it is because if you're outside of New York City, it gives you a chance to come to the birthplace of hip-hop. It gives you a chance to take in some of the hip-hop culture that's in New York City. Also, it gives you a chance to get a free weekend trip. You will be able to come up, take a photo shoot and do your thing. As soon as we announce the winner, we will get in touch with that person and figure out a schedule as soon as possible to get them to New York for the photo shoot.
4. Finally Famous
The fourth reason is it gives you a chance to get some experience when it comes to media relations such as magazines, photo shoots and stuff like that. So once you do [achieve a record deal], you'll have a sense of what takes place at a photo shoot and what goes on when it comes to being [featured] in a print magazine, not just having your little photo shoots done by a camera boy at Best Buy. Now you're working with professionals.
5. Lose Yourself
The fifth reason is because you should take any opportunity you can get to jump into this rap game. You never know what might happen, or who will see it, or who might hear your music. So if there's a chance to get on a bigger platform, you should take it. Don't be like the guys that say, "I should have" or "I would have but I didn't." Live with no regrets and take that one shot.
You Decide. Do you have what it takes for One Shot?
