In today’s musical landscape you don’t see too many artist (outside of the mainstream) who take their time putting a project together. Most of the time artist will release a freestyle here and there to the latest track that’s buzzing on the radio, and will drop a few other singles before slapping all these random songs together and calling it a mixtape. The market is so overwhelmingly saturated with music that mixtapes come and go at the drop of hat and WE, the consumer, don’t even realize it unless it comes from a big name artist that is force fed to us through radio and TV. Imagine how difficult it is for an Independent artist to separate themselves from the thousands of other trying to make it. As hard as it is to market your project without a big budget or record label behind you, it still can be done. Take G.Bags (YFFR) for example, who is making his return to the music scene 06/25/14 with the release of his 3rd solo mixtape YFFR3. Since he dropped YFFR1 on March 9th 2011 Bags has made it very clear that he is a firm believer in #BarsoverBullshit. His Lyric heavy mixtapes have garnered him tons of fans in the 518 and beyond that genuinely support his music and are actually excited for his newest release. This time around Bags opted to not just release a few songs for the public’s listening pleasure, instead he decided to market his project on social media in the form of promo videos sampling different songs of the project. The anticipation for YFFR3 is getting stronger by the day and the beauty of it is people are actually re-posting the promo video on their own accord simply because they support this mans effort to promote his project. In his latest Promo video, G.Bags is joined by Sidney McDonald of EveriExposure.com to promote YFFR3.
