Career Highlights: NCK Records & Lil Opioid’s Rise In The Industry

Article by: Justyn W. Brodsky

We’ve had Hip Hop artist Lil Opioid on the platform once before. Our review of his EP Cosmic got an astounding reaction, and since then, we’ve been delving a little deeper into the young star on the rise.

With over 500,000 followers on Instagram and an insatiable internet presence since his inception into the market, Lil Opioid, on top of embracing his role as one of the fastest rising up-and-comers in the game, garnered enough industry knowledge and a fan base that allowed him to open the doors with his artist development platform NCK Records; an indie label designated to help aspiring and upcoming artists distribute their music and gain exposure to create an active & engaged audience.

Kinda like us at Artist Reach, NCK Records is a “for musicians, by musicians” network that provides industry opportunities for artists of many calibers and mostly focused on the Hip Hop genre. No matter how new or experienced an artist may be. The humble label provides many avenues of improving your artist career ranging from social media marketing, distribution, authentic promotion, and lots more. The label does sign artists and has an application and preliminary process, which requires submission of your music, a rundown of your industry experience, and crucial questions to determine if the label is a proper home base for you. The collective, solely owned/operated by Lil Opioid and a co-CEO, has proven that their mission for the label is in a promising direction for up and coming artists, as well as themselves as entrepreneurs.

Lil Opioid is strictly self-made, self-promoted and a true example of authenticity. And NCK Records is a direct reflection of that; his hands-on experience with the industry that truly encompasses the legwork a lot of artists don’t have the ability or patience to attempt or maintain in this era of the DIY format, and recognizing the strategies, how-to, and most of all, the payoff when hard work takes place.

If you’re an artist that genuinely resonates with this article and Lil Opioid‘s label, you can submit an application to become signed to his roster by going to his official website below. Lil Opioid is coming-up to the big times right now, and would be a good time to connect with him and his label as he continues to hit the ground running.

Press Release: TUBBR – Why The World’s First Personal Social Network is Beneficial To Musicians

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Social Media and platforms for sharing have been a cornerstone to the Internet since the days of MySpace. Everyone wants to get their message/content out there and express their facets of creativity, and the creation of apps, networks and software has provided diligent ways to make this possible.

Whether you’re a content creator, business, photographer, artist, band, model or social media enthusiast, these platforms and their features have opened up a world where anyone and everyone can put their own creative touch to their content and put it out to their network and the world most effectively. Some platforms are more desirable than others, but one thing that comes into play is efficiency and the option for privacy among your network and those you want involved in your network on a more collaborative level. This is where TUBBR comes in, a platform recommended to everyone, however can especially be a gem for your music career as well.

TUBBR is a platform that that lets you create a thing called “Personal Spaces”, where instead of one timeline (like Facebook, for example), this one lets you create multiple timelines. So if you’re a band, this would be perfect to create a timeline for each band member. Or if you’re a solo artist, you could create a timeline for different purposes: touring schedule, merch store, photo section, you get the idea. And just like any other Social Media Network, you have the option to set your timeline(s) to a Privacy setting.

But overall, TUBBR allows you to share your timeline content with your fans in a whole new innovative way that is different and very effective – and at the same time, you can also discover relevant content and collaborate with people on things as well. A good example would be: touring artists. Each artist or group can collaborate or parallel each other’s timelines and put content out to your fans and keep them updated and interested with what you’re doing on your current tour (similar to a tour diary), but in a more fun and intimate setting.

We at Artist Reach gave this platform a try, and it’s extremely innovative and at the same time leaves out all the saturation, unwanted friend requests, spammers, trolls and everything else that makes our mainstream platforms more annoying. And on top of that, the ability to create multiple timelines and collaborative timelines is also something that we were most impressed by. But there’s more to it as well. There are a lot of features on this platform that when combined, create a very multifaceted networking experience that is unlike anything else we’ve ever used. One example of this is the platform itself gives you something called TUBBR WALLS. And you can have multiple.

You can Easily Manage & Control how and to who you share these stories with by keeping these Walls either ‘Private’ within a select group of friends you invite or ‘Public’ for the World to follow while you share & collaborate on your interests with people you desire.

The possibility for users to create these multiple walls gives them the freedom to share a lot more stories on a specific topic and even collaborate with people of choice.

The Benefits of TUBBR:

• Create Multiple Timelines using TUBBR Walls. Keep these Walls

• Public to showcase your passion, work, hobbies, life experiences and more

• Private within select people or friends

• Add your travel partners, gym buddies, co-workers, band members or others on these Walls to Collaborate on Common interests and passions.

• With powerful TUBBR LinkTags you can also promote your blog, products, YouTube videos or SoundCloud tracks on each story you post

• TUBBR feeds will always be as per your interests apart from being Chronological & ADs free!

  • A Spotlight On Indie Labels: COINTELPRO Entertainment

    Article by: Justyn Brodsky:

    Founded in 2011 by Artist & CEO J. Tripp (aka Mr. I-10 aka Thulsa Doom), COINTELPRO originated as primarily a Rap label, but also branched off into other elite parts of the entertainment industry including Comedy, Television and everything in between. COINTEL is independently run and tends to steer its prospects and endeavors away from corporate politics and saturated ideations within the entertainment realm, taking on an approach that focuses more on true talent, authenticity and integrity. Projects that have Soul and actual depth in its structure with limitless possibilities and timeless prosperity.

    COINTEL supports the perspective that everyone has their respective niche and their approach to a genre, and that the company knows good music when they hear it. This is a cornerstone to the company and its purpose as to why it exists.

    The origination of the company name COINTELPRO stems from a series of covert, and at times illegal projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations – legitimate American organizations organized by legitimate tax paying citizens. When one refers to the content of Television and Radio, its designated term is “Programming”. Think about that. Television Programs, Radio Programs, but programming what? That’s where the vital question comes in to question things around you. When the people behind the curtain tell you who’s hot and who’s not, They are programming you. This where COINTELPRO Entertainment steps in. To take the static out of the noise and the noise out of the terminology – and get down to the truth, as it were intended.

    COINTEL brings you that RAW experience first hand. The company takes it back to the day when the people used to be proud when the neighborhood artists got radio play and authentic recognition outside of their original audience. And to quit letting people who don’t matter tell you that you don’t matter, that what you do isn’t relevant anymore. Your audience is right there in front of you, and defiantly waiting to hear something that they can relate to and identify with on a true artist’s level.

    COINTELPRO’s point is “Do you”, if you got the talent, got the message and are you willing to put in the legwork? If so, COINTEL can and will pave the way to new heights for all prospective artists in the field. And that no matter what…always be yourself.
