NEW YORK, May 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Event Rap is the first-ever booking tool for custom rap content. It was founded by rapper and entrepreneur Baba Brinkman, and is currently raising money via a Kickstarter Campaign. Event Rap has signed 12 accomplished rap artists and offers services such as rap summaries of events, custom rap videos, and freestyles that capture the spirit and key messages of an event. Event Rap’s Kickstarter campaign runs until May 27, 2021 and is giving discounted prices and rewards to backers.
Event Rap was conceived during the coronavirus pandemic when Baba began performing via Zoom. Baba’s signature Zoom set was a “Rap Up” – an original song written about an event, composed during the event, and performed at the end as a grand finale that speaks to the audience’s immediate shared experiences.
Over the course of 2020, Baba performed dozens of virtual Event Rap sets at Zoom meetings, galas, and virtual conferences, and was inspired to recruit fellow rappers. Each rapper Baba invited to the new platform responded with an enthusiastic “Hell Yes!” – and Event Rap was born.
Event Rap is the world’s first creator marketplace for highly skilled rappers, providing independent artists with new creative challenges (and income), while expanding the boundaries of the rap industry. Each Event Rap Artist has their unique areas of interest, accomplishments, and lyrical flow. One can request any Event Rap Artist that best fits their needs and message to make videos exploring any topic. They can perform virtually for any occasion, including corporate events, college classes, nonprofit campaigns, private parties, and more. The roster so far includes Abdominal, Baba Brinkman, Corey James Gray, Dex McBean, Fyütch, inverse K, Jam Young, Kosha Dillz, Lex Rush, Mega Ran, Nate and Hila, Nathan Dufour, and Zeps.
Event Rap offers three main services: A Rap Up, a lyrical summary of an event, written during the event and performed at the end; a Custom Rap, an original song and video that captures key themes, prerecorded or premiered at an event; and a Freestyle Set, an improvised performance in response to prompts from the audience.
