Are you a street savvy “bad boy” who loves rap and dreams of becoming a hip hop legend like Tupac Shakur?
If so, a major record company is looking for you.
- Early 20’s (no older than 25)
- Between 5′ 8 and 6′ 1
- Model-type, athletic
- Short hair (ex: Channing Tatum)
- Body tattoos (no face tattoos)
Looking for someone with natural swag, street smarts, and good looks who feels comfortable rapping about street life while appealing to a 12-17 year old white female demographic. Must know street slang and speak with “flavor”. Rapping experience a plus but not required. Must be a team player as you will be working closely with a group of songwriters, vocal coaches, and image consultants.
If this sounds like you, please submit the following:
- A short video explaining why you think you should be selected
- 2 to 3 pictures (including headshot and full-body shot)
- Links to music and/or videos (if available)
Email your material to [email protected].
Deadline is March 15, 2015.

ATTENTION: This is satire. However, given the state of the music business, give it a few more months and this may become a reality.
The email address listed above is real. I initially wanted to use “[email protected]” as an address but it was already taken. The irony! Of course, if someone actually submits their material, I may just be sharing it in a forthcoming article. Stay tuned. This could get ugly.
