Hey everyone, I am up for an IMA. Which is SUPER COOL! If you can give me five stars on my track "Living A Dream" for best hip-hop song at the link below that would be super great. Tellingzbeatz did the production, mixed at Sounddaddy Studios, released through ExPat records, and all samples cleared through Jackie Green and SLG music.
You do have to register (nothing I can do about that one) but if you do so that would be even better. Just give my song 5 stars, and feel free to check out the other artists nominated.
Now that thats out of the way check the press release below.
