Brand new hip-hop hotline

Submitted by on February 28, 2007 – 12:14 pmOne Comment


Akon’s music, in addition to other acts, is now available via phone

Just like good ol’ Chingy, the latest tracks from acts like Akon, Wu-Tang Clan, David Banner, and Pharoahe Monch are now only one call away.

SRC Records has partnered with BeatPhone to create a music hotline for fans to hear new singles over the telephone by calling (US only) 212-937-7722(SRC2).

“We reached out to Steve Rifkind because he has always embraced creative marketing strategies to promote his artists, going back to the street teams of the early ’90s with Loud Records,” says Dorsey West, founder of BeatPhone.

“Promoting music over the telephone allows SRC to build a buzz for new songs without worrying about Internet leaks by letting fans hear tracks on the hotline without being able to download them.”

Calls to the SRC Hotline are billed just like a regular phone call and no additional charges apply.

Artists and record labels interested in promoting their music over the telephone can visit the BeatPhone website at www.BeatPhone.com.
