Wanted: Hip Hop Videos for Mobile Network

A note from Clyde, the "brains" behind Hip Hop Press, netweed and ProHipHop.

San Francisco, October 3, 2005

ProHipHop is doing some video scouting for a mobile hip hop network that Mobile Lingo is considering launching in the next few months. Right now I'm just looking to hear from folks who have or are shooting hip hop music videos and would be interested in providing short clips, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes long, to be shown on cellphone. We're primarily interested in unsigned and independent artists as well as artists on small labels that would be interested in providing the clips for free. Obviously, the payoff would be in promotion and we are planning a related website to feature the best clips and information about the artists.

Our use would be nonexclusive, so you could do whatever else you want with the clips. However, currently we can't handle material involving violence, displays of weaponry, drug use, nudity or profanity. I know that may cause some difficulties but we're dealing with the major carriers and that creates a variety of limits. However, if you've shot a full length music video, you could do a special edit for the shorter clip that would meet those requirements.

If you have video posted online, please let me know. Otherwise, simply send me an email letting me know that you're interested and that you'd like to be updated as information becomes available. Also, if you have other ideas that you'd like me to pass along to Mobile Lingo, send those as well to:

For now, please don't send any attachments but let me know what's up, ask any questions you have, etc. I'm kind of excited about this because I've mostly had to ignore requests to check out music and that kind of thing, so I'm glad to be involved with a project that should be helpful for artists as they build.
