This is just a quick plea to request that you please follow this link :
DJ paWL formerly of the brilliant group Hangar 18, is making a film about rappers and what it's like actually being a rap artist in present day hip hop. From the looks of things it's going to give an insight into the side of the business we don't see, actually showing what it's like to work as a rapper like how we work in whatever our day jobs are. A more detailed explanation can be found at the end of that link up there.
Please check it out and help get this documentary made. For those of you unfamiliar with Kickstarter I'll give you a brief explanation, essentially the projects on this site need funding and they need it from you! The cool thing about this is that you are rewarded for your contribution, with better rewards the more you chip in. On this project for example there are numerous rewards for getting involved:
$1 gets you a personal thank you email from The Director.
$5 gets you a thanks in the credits! That's not bad for your name on a movie.
$100 will actually get you in the movie! I'm gutted I don't live in America as I would be all over this one.
There are loads of other rewards for you depending on the amount you want to donate so I'll let you check the link to see what you can get.
The other cool thing about this is that the money will not be deducted from your account until the closing date of the project and only if the target is met. If the full amount is not collected then you won't be out of pocket, if the goal is met then the money is taken and you get whatever shiny reward you were after and also the satisfaction of helping someone get their business done. Head on over to the site and give what you can, it would be a crying shame to see this project fizzle out. Please give even if it's just a dollar (that's 61p for us Brits, which is good value for a pleasant email from a member of one of my favourite rap groups, it is for me anyways).
If you could check it out I'd really appreciate it and if you can spare some coin then I'm sure the folks involved in the project would appreciate it too. If you would like to, check out the Twitter feed of DJ paWL on @Pawlmadethis and you can keep up to date with the progress of the project.
Thanks for reading
