Hello my name is Michael Gordon I was born in Brooklyn NY I am 32 years old. My mom and dad struggled through their lives raising my two brothers and two sisters. Both my sisters suffer from breast cancer my older brother has diabetes and I have high blood pressure with a slight heart problem. Only one brother has good health.My parents still live in the same apartment I was raised in since my birth. In 1999 I left New York and moved to Maryland where I worked off to books and saved money to create my dream.In 2006 I started a radio station and media company “Show and Prove Radio and Media” The company did do a great deal of community out reach amongst other things. We found what everyone knew there were very little things to occupy the youth but no one was doing anything about it. If someone stood up and put together programs for young people things would change. Giving young people an alternative to the streets in the only way to keep them away from gangs and gang activity.Two years after starting “Show and Prove Radio and Media” I lost the company. The home, which I rented, was foreclosed on, and we were put on the street. After remodeling the basement of this house and installing thousands in equipment we lost everything, due to a dead beat landlord.This has not stopped my passion. I have been living with family going from house to house but I have to rebuild. In the attempt to rebuild I have gone to banks for loans of course without success. The company was not around long enough to establish enough credit for a loan. These are just minor set backs, I will rebuild.My passion is to help the young people has taken shape in the form of an 800 service. “Before you pick up the gun, call someone!” This teenage out reach service will be built for young men and women on the edge. Giving these young people someone to turn to 24 hours and day seven days a week. The 800 services will be free from every phone including cell phones. We will accept calls and text messages and even chirps for cell phone walkies. After all almost all young people today have a cell phone of some type; this puts our assistance into the palm of their hands. I would advertise digital resources along with traditional commercials. Using my contacts that I have made in the Hip Hop industry. Hip Hop Crime Stoppers can be a great pilot for young people because urban music reaches and great deal of young people. Music artist and entertainers will give young people a resource that the streets have in the past. This 800 service will act as a surrogate when parents can’t be there.After the 800 services are established the service will branch off to centers in inner city communities where they are needed most. Giving young people a place to go when there is no place. The centers will become a second home keeping the kids off the streets, running career guidance programs along with college placement assistance. We can give our young people a chance. After all a great author once said “It takes a village to raise a child”. The hip-hop community can be the village so we can raise our young people in a positive way.Contact InformationMichael GordonGordonbi840@verizon.netTelephone 609.490.0339

Whats up to everyone at Def Jam Records. I am a young DJ,17, colaberated with a young MC,16. We are from Schenctady NY and we are killing the streets. We have just started sending out demos to record lables and within this month we will start bringing them to the local radio staion Jamz 96.3 and we will keep doing so untill we get put into rotation and or get signed. We are 2 young hard working, determined artists and will guarantee nothing less except a profitble business move. My uncle, Digga, records with Jay Simmons and is an x member of a group called Flatliners, he had aslo recorded with Rusty Waters. His response to the tapes we passed him was"you guys are nice, very talented you just need to be fine tuned and there wont be any competition at your age level." So i ask nothing more but to listin to at lest one track and you will hear that we will do nothing less than benifit your lable and prosper as to young individual artists. You can contact me at aceboogiedip@yahoo.comThis would be greatly apriciated on be half of me and my partner. Thank you.

To Whom It May Concern: I am a local rapper trying to get a record deal and I am looking for a little exposure. I have been rapping since 1998 and still going. I write my own original lyrics. I am performer and reside in northeast Missouri (Kirksville). If you are interested please contact me by email, mail, or phone. If you would like to see a picture of you can visit myspace at www.myspace.com/yellamacmusic. Thank you for your time and attention I will be looking forward to your feedback.Cortez Robinson 'Yella Mac'303 West PierceKirksville, Mo 63501(660) 665-6395double0sevenmac@hotmail.comBioI did my first freestyle back in '98 just for fun. Then it turned into a hobby over time. At the same time having people telling me my lyrics was nice, and I also notice it myself but I didn't want to boast. It then evolved into a passion, after that my music became my life. After recording my first mixtape with a friend of mine named Garett in '03, it was straight to the top from there. Over the years, I've performed and featured in shows, while also hosting them. Now I'm working on my first solo,"Tha Real Yella Pages," also featuring a couple of my niggas. With dreams of signing on a dotted line maybe this album will finally give me that one opporitunity.

ARE YOU 'KIDS' SERIOUSLY TRYING TO GET A DEAL BY USING PHRASES LIKE 'I M THE NXT BIG TING IN THA UK'... SHUT UP AND WORK YER WAY FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP - GO TO YOUR LOCAL OPEN MIC SESSION AND TRY IT ON! AND REMEMBER THAT BEING A SINGER, BEAT MAKER, PRODUCER (IF YOU DO MORE THAN HOOK UP BEATS THAT IS!) OR SOMEONE WHO INHERITED GOOD LOOKS FROM YER PARENTS DOES'NT MAKE YOU DIFFERENT TO ANYONE ELSE!

V.I.N. (virgin island native)'s picture

V.I.N. (virgin ...

To whom it concerns at Def Jam Records. I was floored to hear that JAY-Z is dropping another album and is out of retirement (Entertainment Weekly). I recently copped his Black Album (acappella) and have done some remixes. I know for a fact J would love to hear it. It contains absolutely no samples (which I personally think some producers can only make their beats with) and all tracks have got that 'bounce' that Jigga prefers. My remix of 'Moment Of Clarity' kills Eminems', and could very well have made the Black album. I know your company gets thousands of letters, e-mails, and phone calls from artists who all claim to have what it takes. If you could please take a few minutes out of your very busy and hectic schedules to listen, you WILL NOT be dissapointed. Wouldn't J love to have a fresh producer with an unlimited creative imagination, original and sample free beats that kicks, and an incredible ear for the right sound for the right track? I am not another artist with all promises and no delivery. My s**t is rehab for samplin' addicts. Is it possible to send my remixes to Def Jam and have the right people hear it, and maybe get some feedback? I know this is all a shot in the dark, so I'm hoping whoever reads this at Def Jam will forward it to Mr. Carter or e-mail me back in response. Thank you so much for your time. V.I.N. (virgin island native)

whats good this is kostco from staten island new york. i just want to send my props to def jam and i know its alot of "rappers that want the fame and thats it" well its not about the fame from my opinion. i really been doing music for ten years straight and i been trying to go real hard with my music. so the only way i can really get myself known is by going to gigs and putting my website out for people to notice me. then sell my music (self promotion). and i know im not the best at mixing down recording and other stuff (due to 16 bit recording)i do have what it takes. just need to see what people think about my music. im not asking for a deal or anything like that. I just want people to listen to my music and if you like it you can send a comment on my page. heres my website. www.kostcomusic.com and let me know what you think about my beats that i have up there too. i work real real real real real hard at what i do. thank you for the support and god bless. -Kostco-

Dear Def Jam,You know how hard it is to get someone to listen to your work. I'm orginially from Louisiana and relocated to Georgia. I have been creating my own music(beats) and lyrics since 1989. If you would take a lil time out of your busy schedule to listen to my work, it will not only be profitable for my career but also you record label.Thank you for your time and consideration, it is highly appreciated.Look forward to hearing from you.Puppy D.

Hey, Def Jam,My name's Vanessa Kanu. I'm a 17 year old Nigerian.Like everyone else, I really want to get into the music industry. I have something I wanna share with the world. But, unlike most people, I not only want to get into the industry; I can confidently say that I got the voice, the talent, and the attitude for it.Problem is, Nigeria- God bless it - is just not the place. if you're lucky enough to know someone in the industry, thats fine. You're in. Otherwise, its sayonara to you. Other times, the issue is money. At the moment, I don't have that. I know this though- I'm a walking gold-mine... just that no one has noticed. I know how things work in the industry. You don't just accept every Tom, Jerry, and Dick. You guys gotta sort out the trash from the fash. I also know, that most of these comments also go by unread, or ignored. But if you ignore this, you, not COULD, but WOULD, be making a very big mistake. I'm currently in New Jersey, so I guess thhat's better than being in Nigeria. But I'll Be here for a week.My contact number in Nigeria is +2348057460211.If you don't pay any attention to this, I'll understand. Who'd like to take such a risk? But remember, the greatest risk in life, they say, is to not risk anything.Before I end this, I gotta say, love your work, DJ. Keep on keeping on. And keep keeping it real, too.Long Live Def Jam!!!Love all Y'all.

I learned about Mr.R Simmons and DefJam through Mr. E. Green of St Petersburg, Florida. I want to take this opportunity as a 19 year old singer/songwriter to invite you to my website to listen to my music and to read my biography. I am in my second semester of college and seeking the support and encouragement from prominent people in the community to help me bring my dream of becoming a R&B/Inspirational singing artist to reality. I trust that you will visit my site at www.myspace.com/janellechantelle and return a comment to me at your earliest convenience. I use two email addresses but you can respond to the one I provided above. Hope you enjoy my music. J'Nelle.
