Chicago collab w/ Owen Chaim

Post by TerrellBurt » Mon Jul 13, 2015 11:35 am

Hey guys. I linked up with Owen Chaim about two weeks ago to collab on a song called "Life In Chicago" for the below listing. You can hear it on both of our TAXI homepages. Let us know what you think!

CONTEMPORARY HIP-HOP SONGS with Male Vocals and lyrics about “Chicago” are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for a SMASH HIT TV Series on a Major Broadcast Network. They desperately need solid, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic wheelhouse of artists like Jay Z, 2 Chainz, Drake, etc., etc., etc. Please review the following references to get yourself in the ballpark of what they quickly need!

“Tom Ford” by Jay Z:

“I’m Different” by 2 Chainz:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2QKlmMT8II

“Energy” by Drake:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-AjsctjklI

Please submit full-length Songs that have a modern Hip-Hop style production, with head-bobbin’ beats, great hooks, and a rhythmically compelling vocal delivery. Lyric themes should revolve around “Chicago,” with street-smart, friendly lyrics that use inventive wordplay. Even though this is a rare case in which they don’t need universal lyrics (because of the Chicago aspect) you’d be wise to avoid mentioning brands, dates, times, names, and profanity for this pitch. Mentioning Chicago by name, or places and things that you’d find or experience in Chicago should be fine.

Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way shape or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Also, please avoid any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

The estimated license fee for this is between $1,000 to $5,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Production Company pitch, so you’ll keep 100% of all rights ownership, and get 100% of the sync fee, plus you’ll also get 100% of all applicable performance royalties! You must own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. All songs will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Please submit 1-3 Songs no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Thursday, July 2nd, 2015. TAXI #U150702HH

Like the lyrics: "...summer breeze" is working.
And, the part about "knowin' wrong & right" and "...hard pill to swallow"
reminded me of an old preacher from the late 60s who would say to the youth,
most of whom were drug-ies...
"...there's one pill... if you swallow it...
will cure all your ills...
and, that's the 'Gos-pill'...."

Good work, fellas..
