At the invitation of my bestest buddy J-Will, aka @theobell, I spoke on Social Media at a tweetup for STLmixtapes.com. This wonderful music project, started by J-Will and @BigLos, allows local St. Louis rap talent – artists, producers, and DJs – to gather in one place to showcase their music. If you have something you want up on the site, send it in and watch this happen:
http://stlmixtapes.com/2010/10/jesse-mtv2/ <—– it has 700 tweets and almost 250 Facebook likes. Now that’s great exposure!
Thank you to @RossPR for the first video, and J-Will for the second one.
I have to say, I was nervous up there on stage. A room full of artists, producers, DJs, and rap fans, all waiting to hear Potzee rap. They weren’t there to hear me. I think my nerves made their way into my performance. I have no problem watching my RISE interview – I can watch it over and over, start to finish. On the flip side, I find it hard to watch this performance. I can’t sit all the way through it without hitting pause. I just need to get more practice, and do a better job next time. And not drink 4 Guinness before I go on stage.
Luckily a few people came up afterwards and said, “Great job,” “I’m in the same boat you were, trying to break out,” “Very inspirational…..” so all of that makes me feel a little better. Thanks again to J-Will and Los for the opportunity. I met so many great people that night. (S/O to @Entelleckt!)
