Clay James signs an Equity Distribution deal | @WhoIsClayJames @EqDistro

Here’s why Clay James chose to sign an Equity Distribution deal.

Equity is the independent distribution arm of the Roc Nation family of companies, distinct from the Roc Nation label. They provide independent artists global music distribution and have partnerships with over 125 digital service platforms. Equity Distribution counts emerging and veteran acts like Tameka “Tiny” Harris, her son King, Mariahlynn, Vado, Tangina Stone, Chanel West Coast, and Jadakiss’ SoRaspy label among its clientele.

Clay James has had success independently making strides in his hometown Savannah, Georgia and the underground music scene in Atlanta. He’s previously had distribution deals with EMPIRE as well as Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle Records imprint. He’s a frequent performer on festivals like SXSW, A3C, and the Daze Summit. Clay has garnered millions of SoundCloud listens and even managed to win Hip-Hop Song Of The Year In 2017 at the Indie Music Awards In Los Angeles, CA. Clay has been featured in The Fader, XXL, Source, & Vibe magazines. With things seemingly moving in the right direction, what made Clay chose to do an Equity Distribution deal?

Clay said, “I like the fact they offer digital strategy support, in-house marketing, and playlist promotion. All of these in which I feel would enhance what I have going on currently in my career. You also get to own your masters and keep majority of the profit shares. It’s a win win. I think the relationship with them would prepare me for the next step of my career. I plan to make my first release under them next month!”

The 2020 SCM Awards honors Dr. Braque Talley!

This year, at the 12th Annual, 2020 SCM Awards, we are proud to honor Dr. Braque Talley, the 2020 recipient of the SCM Humanitarian Award. Dr. Braque Talley is the Vice President of Enrollment at Rust College in Holly Springs, MS and reports directly to the President of the institution. The theme for the 12th Annual 2020 SCM Awards is “20/20 Perfect Vision: Everyone will see clearly” and Dr. Braque Talley has helped many students from all over see a clearer future for themselves and others.

The 2020 SCM Awards honors Dr. Braque Talley!

Dr. Talley graduated from Rust College in 2011 and earned his masters degree at Alabama A&M where he also worked as a graduated assistant from 2011 to 2012. He went on to obtain his doctorate from Jackson State University in 2018, which, in his opinion, is his most significant professional accomplishment to date, since only 2 percent of the African-American population in the United States holds this type of degree.

During his professional career, Dr. Braque Talley has helped many impoverished students and students from low-income families enroll into the college, as well as adults and first generation college students. He acted as a mentor to countless of college students of all backgrounds and gives hope to students who thought of giving up on themselves and on life, many of whom went on to graduate with a college degree and become quite successful in their careers and communities.

Buck Madoff: Marcys Newest Protege

Sometimes it looks like a lose lose situation but the right mindset can treat it like training for the win. Go walk around Bed Stuys Marcy projects in  Brooklyn, ask about Buck Madoff and you will know exactly what this means. He’s had more than his fair share of obstacles and pain laid in his path. No father ✔️, Foster Care ✔️, Special Education ✔️, Fucked up neighborhood ✔️, Mother passed away ✔️ but he didn’t let any of that stop him. Turning to the music he geared up for 2019 by dropping “My x4”, then a freestyle video called “Trauma” reminiscent of Mobb Deeps “Get Away” and then  another visual for “Feel It” converting the Beanie classic. He went into a promotional flurry, pressed up merchandise and materials, dropped the song “SON”  maneuvered an interview at radio station Power 105.1  all to drive his up coming Album release ‘10210’.  Get familiar with him because he’s not showing any signs of giving up.

Introducing Bikedope Podcast & Clothing Line | @bikedope1000


WHAT IS BIKEDOPE? Today’s world is wacky! With so many trends and fads in the world it’s to hard for people to keep up with what’s hot or stylish. Truthfully who cares what they do. The BIKEDOPEculture and creed is a little different. We believe in hunting down our passions, breathing life into our dreams and completely destroying the shit that stands in the way of our destiny. BIKEDOPE is a culture not just a brand. Our goal is to encourage people to be themselves. Tweek the stuff that needs tweekin, but be greater at the stuff we’re already good at. People should be accepted for who they are and there beliefs and not what they look like. BIKEDOPE gives a voice to the voiceless, and the unseen a certain visibility and clarity. We don’t follow what’s hot or trending. BIKEDOPE is fanatical about dream chasers and people who are cozy in their own skin. Lead the charge and be freaking great at it. Be Free, Be Daring, Be Yourself! Jon Agnew creator of Bikedope!
