Hey Admin,
I posted to the blog a couple of times letting you know I work with the UNC-Chapel Hill Black Alumni Reunion and I wanted to talk to you about opportunities for sponsorship and/or partnering with Sprite and/or LeBron James for our events in the Fall. Then I thought it may be a conflict of interest for you to talk to me about it now since I did make it to the Top 3. I am not sure how long this blog will be up, so I wanted to pass along my contact information to you, in hopes that you will be able to talk about it when the contest is over and the winner has been announced. I can go into great detail about the number of people a company would be able to reach and the demographic of alum we have who come back for Homecoming and the Reunion Weekend. Hopefully, we will be able to get into all that at some point. Get at me when you can...I am off to vote and promote myself to get my people to vote for me on that last day.

Alright, fellas. I know ya pacing the floor at night for this gig as you await the results. Utilize some of that time and play some EA sports Basketball. Bricks are unacceptable, we just want alllll net! Just like in this competition, allll net!

LeBron 23-23 Admin said...

Yo, ThaProphet.

It would have been inappropriate for me to talk about other opportunities while you were still being voted on. It could give the appearance that we were biased. Now that voting is closed, I can at least acknowledge your message. I took down your contact email and will shout at you when I get a chance.

NO promises on a sponsorship, but I'll look at it.

- - - - - - - -

On another note, I'll eventually tell ya'll who I am and start to use this blog as an update on the process of setting up studio time, production, recording and the whole 9 on turning this project into LeBron's theme song. Hopefully, it will be a good look into the marketing and music industry and the complexity one of these deals.

As always, feel free to ask any questions about the process, what it takes to get on, or whatever.

If you're doing something big, post it in the boards but put a limit on begging for deals/hookups/contracts...No free rides are being offered.

It will be interesting to get the scoop on the whole process. Do you know when they announce the winner? When I was reading the rules it said something about the winner being notified by or around April 2nd? The rules get confusing for me anyway..so not sure. That was kind of a general question, as it really doesn't relate to me at all.

Sooooo...now you got me and I'm sure others a little curious about who you really are...lol

I get you on the begging thing..I hope no one does, all I say, is I can just put myself out there and hope for the best.

Is it ok to post here if you have something goin on? Like the show my music will be on this week? I know its not related to sprite or coke or your agency, or maybe a network you are affiliated with.

LeBron 23-23 Admin said...

Do1,

Trust me...I'm not "that" important - like LeBron or Music celebrity inmportant. I run interactive marketing for Sprite - which means I'm in charge of digital music, videogames, Internet advertising, NBA digital cell phones etc.

- - - - -

Also, you can post whatever you want as long as you keep it clean and begging-limited. We get pretty good traffic to the website and blog.

Lastly, I know who won...

LeBron 23-23 Admin said...

Let me double check with legal to see how we announce the winner. Working on that now.

Have to make sure the i's are dotted...

KEPPEN said...

So I guess I cant beg to see a copy of the Lebron invites? lol its all good if I cant see em, but would be nice if I could at the same time. Anyways Im glad that you are gonna keep this blog going after the contest is over.

Also my mixtape/compelation album is gonna be ready by May, so I will let everyone know when its ready so you can download the free demo. And if you guys like what you hear, you can buy the album online. I will post the details when its ready to hit the streetz. Holla back - Keppen

Thanks for the update Admin. After I gave it some thought, I realized it would have been inappropriate to discuss anything while voting was still going on. I apologize if I seemed impatient or crossed the line by trying to discuss that prior to the contest being over. My bad...I just wanted to be sure and get that out because I had no idea how long the blog was going to be up. So, I will just be on the lookout for an email from you at some point in the near future. Thanks for all your help. I know you can't promise anything with sponsorship at all, but I hope we can work something out.

Since Admin said it's ok, just wanted to let you know if y'all ain't busy tomorrow night at 10pm est,one of my tracks Money Go Getta is going to be on the show Unique Whips in a montage to the owner Will Castro. It's on the Fox SPEED channel on basic cable.

They licensed other tracks from me, but don't know when they will be featured. I'm pretty excited, I was told they have a viewing audience of between 4 and 5 million.

The show is off the hook regardless...for any of you who hasn't seen it the past few years, Will Castro owns a shop Unique Whips..they customize cars for everyone from NBA, NFL, and other athletes, to boxers, actors, and rappers like 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks..


I also have 2 new tracks up on Soundclick, and will put 1 up on myspace later. Both feature my boy Bigg Tazz, and are funky , yet smooth..

Thanks to all y'all for the support you've been throwin my way recently..it's much appreciated.

Hey Admin,
Since the voting is over and you have a winner by now,(congrats to the winner) but lets keep it real admin, doesnt thaprophet track sound a lot like the track I created the 1 I put BS&T to create, If the thaprophet wins do we share the deal(lol) because when the commercial played on ALL Star wknd I thought It was mine for a quick min. because our track sounded to much alike, I just dont get it How I get credit on BET freeflow for my track but then he made it to TOP 3 with the same track, The proof is in the pudding. Its all LOve Tho this is not the end for JACKOUTO Still Got more tracks then your chicks hairdo

When will the winner be annouced? People, everyone wants to know, what day, the date, will the answer be told!

What is going on? Sorry that you feel like our beats sound similar based on the parts of mine that were lifted for the commercial, JACKOUTO. They just took parts of our original spot and condensed it for the 30 second commercial spot. I listened to your beat and heard the parts that sound similar, but you can hear the differences in other parts of the track. You used sounds I didn't use and I used sounds you didn't use. It is all good though. I have heard others that are similar to the one I have in the top 3 and others I made. Maybe I was just lucky enough to get mine in the top 100 and have it move on from there. But go check my entire mix out in the listen lab and you will hear the differences in our tracks. The top 3 were chosen based on the entire 1 minute track. But like you said, it is all love over here too. Keep doing ya thing. I am feeling your style, since our do sound somewhat similar is some parts.

Whazzup Peeps! Big Up's to the Top 3 finalists! I support all of you! Make the best of the situation and the opportunity, stay on the elevator and I'll meet you at the top! Check out my pages folks, www.myspace.com/rip1productions www.myspace.com/rip1musicproductions. I've been getting a lot of luv and a major buzz from my track "Jiggulation" performed by my artist, Kesa Lee. We're averaging over 500 plays a day and over 10,000 plays in the past 3 weeks from both pages combined! We've received invites to perform the song in the U.K., Jamaica, Japan and several clubs throughout the states! We're currently negotiating performance contracts and trying to secure the riders, get passports and tweek our show for the potential events.

Admin, will there be any future opportunities for the Top 100? Like other TV programs, ad's or video games? I landed 3 tracks in the Top 100 and one of my tracks was selected in the 14 for BET's NBA Freeflow, so I still have two tracks floating, "MVP" and " LeBron's Theme." Nonetheless, I want to again thank Sprite, Coca-Cola, LeBron and everyone involved in providing this opportunity! Yall alright with me!!! Holla at your man...
