On Tuesday September 10th at 7:00pm PST DubCNN.com will host a live stream of the Hip-Hop documentary, “DEMOS” narrated by rapper Skyzoo.
It’s been 2 years since Kareem Fort discussed his upcoming documentary “DEMOS” in this exclusive interview and today we bring it to you via Live Stream!
Having announced it in 2011 he released an early trailer and the Please Listen To My DEMOS Vol. 1 mixtape, before we spoke to Hassan Phenomenon during a call in on DubCNN radio episode 17 (04/22/11) to discuss the film and then Crooked I spoke on the DEMOS Documentary in a video piece.
After we notified you that Brooklyn emcee Skyzoo would be the star of the film via a then newly released trailer all fell silent until earlier this year when we dropped off the Official DEMOS Documentary Trailer featuring clips from artists including Eternia, DJ Quik Black Thought, J*Davey, Skyzoo, Fuzzy Fantabulous, Talib Kweli, Mack 10, Illmind, Crooked I, Planet Asia, El Prez, Thurz, Naughty By Nature, No ID, Nitty Scott with the final version expected to also showcase Tech N9ne, Jean Grae, Rapper Big Pooh, Terrace Martin, Freeway and many more.
If you’ve ever asked “How do I stand out from the countless other artists trying to make it? “Should I put out a mixtape or an album first?” “Do I need a booking agent?” “How do I build my brand and create an image?” “How can I get sponsorship for shows and tours?” These questions are the essence of DEMOS.
Today, DubCNN has teamed up with Kareem Fort and the team behind DEMOS to host the full documentary screening tonight, September 10tth. The simulcast will start at exactly 7pm EST and 4pm PST and you will be watching it right here, see below!
