Diddy's Manager Chris Lighty Offers A Shot For Artists To Be Heard For $10 [Video]


For $10, Aspiring Rappers Can Upload Songs To 50 Cent, Diddy’s Manager For A Listen, Critique

The man behind the careers of Diddy, 50 Cent, Soulja Boy and LL Cool J is offering a chance for artists to be heard. Chris Lighty, the head of Violator Management, will launch the interactive website for unsigned artists,

For only $10, rappers can upload their music and Lighty, co-founder Michael Dizon, and other staff will then take a listen and give feedback.

Chris got the idea a few years ago watching American Idol but states that the site is not meant to be harsh and that he will not “Simon Cowell” artists with negativity. “There are so many creative people out there. We are not reaching everybody. Just listen to the radio. It’s the same 15 artists all day everyday,” said Chris.

The site will feature the best songs and make them available to the public. The best ones will go to Hot 97 FM and program director, Ebro Darden states, “This will hopefully help music as a whole.”

Some people are worried about ideas being stolen, others view it as a great opportunity to be discovered. What do you think?
