DEMOS: An Independent Artist’s Guide To Success [Live Screening Now!]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

This one was a long time in the making (over 2 years), but I assure you it's worth the wait. The documentary, DEMOS: An Independent Artist's Guide To Success, is now available for the public to view by way of this live screening session. The doc truly delves all the way into the world of independent hip-hop, from every angle possible (artist, management, label, radio etc.). Whether you work in the business, are an artist on the rise, or just a fan, this documentary is sure to teach you something new (I definitely got put on to some things), with first hand accounts from Black Thought, Talib Kweli, Houseshoes, J-Live, DJ Quik, Rapper Big Pooh, Naughty By Nature, Torae, No I.D., Jean Grae, Dwele, Freeway, Skyzoo (who narrates the doc), J*DaVeY, Eternia, Hopsin, El Prez, Thurz, and many many more. In the ever-changing music world, this doc is as close to a comprehensive guide on how to succeed in this industry as you'll find. This screening is one-night only, so stop what you're doing and watch it, below at 7pm EST. After the screening is over, you can watch an exclusive video chat with the doc's director, Kareem Fort, as well as Skyzoo, El Prez, Houseshoes, Big Dho, and more, who will all be available to chat with fans, at the bottom of the post (sign up here to join the discussion).
