NEW YORK, June 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Yesterday, Event Rap, a newly-launched custom rap agency, exceeded its Kickstarter campaign goal of $26K by almost a third, with $34,438 raised (view here). The Event Rap Kickstarter campaign ran from April 27 – May 27, 2021, offering rewards including Custom Rap Videos, live Rap Up summaries of events, and even fully-produced songs and music videos.
Founder Baba Brinkman worked with a roster of 12 experienced rap artists to produce a series of original songs and videos as early rewards for backers, and as prototypes for the new business. Event Rap now launches on a strong footing as the first booking service where you can easily commission a live virtual performance or custom rap video on any topic, upending the traditional music industry and modeling it instead on a creator marketplace app – forget Uber Eats, think Uber Raps!
Baba Brinkman also recently released the music video for his latest single "Counterfactual," commissioned by Wesleyan University Climate Economist Gary Yohe, which highlights the dangers of misinformation about COVID vaccinations, climate science, news, and politics. The song is available on Baba's new LP, Bright Future — the first-ever Custom Science Rap album, with ten original songs and videos, each commissioned to tell a story about science and society — released today, May 28, 2021.
