As you should know by now, you don’t need a major label record deal to be successful as an artist. There are countless examples like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis who just went over three times platinum with their single Thrift Shop. Coming May 1, 2013 is a new social buying platform for hip hop artists, an online music distribution hot spot, Skotch Tapes. Providing a place for independent hip hop artists, Skotch Tapes in association with A&M Entertainment are aiming to keep the contracts aside and get your music promoted without any constraints. In advance, they recently launched a clothing line that focuses on a “major without the label” concept that is set to get the word out. So if you got some dope bars, nice hooks, some sick beats and think you got what it takes, this is something you might want to check out.
The first 10,000 subscribers will be granted 50% off all tracks forever which you can sign up at Skotch Tapes.
