Miami, Fl (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
JBYRD, a talented 16-year-old rapper based in Atlanta, Georgia, has launched an exciting rewards crowdfunding campaign on the EarlyShares funding platform.
An attention-grabbing artist with a large social media following, JBYRD is raising $30,000 to record, promote, and film a music video for his next single. To back the crowdfunding campaign, go to earlyshares.com/projects_music/jbyrd.
JBYRD, whose real name is Samuel Freckmann, has been writing, recording, and performing his own material since the age of 9. JBYRD’s talent got him noticed by his now-mentor and manager DJ Hurricane, a groundbreaking hip-hop pioneer who is best known as the Beastie Boys’ DJ for 15 years.
JBYRD (aka ‘The Kid’) achieved his large fan base thanks in part to his breakout viral videos. JBYRD is best known for ‘Green & Yellow,’ his tribute to the Green Bay Packers and take on Wiz Khalifa’s hit ‘Black and Yellow.’ ‘Green & Yellow’ earned over 1 million hits on YouTube in early 2011 and helped JBYRD acquire his 36,000+ followers on Twitter.
Since releasing ‘Green & Yellow,’ JBYRD has rapped in concert as an opening act for Tech N9ne, performed in the Atlanta Homegrown Hip Hop Showcase, and appeared in his own Disney Channel ‘Make Your Mark’ video, which showcased his talent and work ethic to a national TV audience.
“I’m so excited to be working with EarlyShares Music to raise funds for my next hit single,” said JBYRD. “This crowdfunding campaign will not only help me take my rap career to the next level but will give my fans a chance to earn awesome rewards and be a part of my success.”
