theBREAX turn to crowd sourcing for next album

San Diego-based hip hop and spoken word crew theBREAX is hoping to crowd-source $15,000 or more to support the release of their next album tentatively targeted for a December release.

Using as the launch pad, the group is offering a variety of incentive and sponsorship levels to help them pay for music videos, a legit media/PR campaign and a promotional tour in the fall and winter.

A portion of the funds they raise will also go toward paying their entry into showcases at several conferences throughout the nation that will host major decision makers and booking agents for the colleges where they are trying to get shows.

If you’ve ever thought to yourself “Imagine if everyone in the Christian hip hop community got behind a single group or record we could really break into the mainstream” this might be your ticket.

Here's their video pitch:
