Grand Opening Grand Closing!
On Sunday [October 5th, 2014] ‘The Rain & Kaye Plum’ [@RKPRadio] show concluded it’s six month radio run on damatrix studios network. Since our debut back in May of this year, we’ve had the honor of interviewing some talented esteemed guests, and bringing social issues to the forefront for our youth, and we are deeply grateful to each of you [our fans, family, and friends] for supporting our RKPRadio vision so, THANK YOU once again.
As promised, our finale show went out with a BANG! Artist Jake P was one of our featured guest.
” The NJ native possesses a timeless flow, lyrical prowess and an unmatched musical versatility that is gripping, yet calming. Jake P’s music sounds effortless…to an extent it is.”
Who is Jake P?
” Jake is from Montclair, which I rep pretty hard. I’ve been rapping since prep school and while I was playing basketball. I’ve seen and learned alot since my mistake in basketball and I try to put that into rap and everything else that along with teaching those lessons to my students…. I’m married and I love it so that’s about it.”
On His Musical Style:
” I think it really about not trying too hard to be caught up in what I’m going to say that is not a representative of me. Like, I’ll talk wreckless because I like to have fun but I’m not going to talk wreckless and CRAZY about women when I know I could never look my wife in the eye or never have looked in my mother in the eye and act like I said something like that. So, I think being real, being fun, still talking a little slick is good, but not to point where I’m sounding stupid. “
On Proving Himself In An African American Dominated Industry:
” In my upbringing, I grew up playing competitive basketball all my life and I was always the only white guy, and it was almost weird for me to be around more white people when I so use to being around black people, so I would say it was always very natural for me, and I feel like I am competitive with young black men when it come basketball and rap and I’m pretty use to it. “
” I think it’s really about talent at the end of the day. Like with Drake, I respect his talent alot. I know alot people talk about his swag, being too much, and trying too hard and I agree with some of that, but I think ‘talent is talent’, and ‘skill is skill’ and the way he mixes it up… I’d like to be revered in the same way. For me, If you have a thoughtful opinion, then I’m open to critical feedback but other than that, I’m good. ”
Jake went on to talk about his musical influences, his stance on today’s rap music, why he will not being using the N-word whether he receives his industry ‘entry’ pass or not, and he also drop a few freestyles for our viewing pleasure. Keep up with @JakeP over at his website HERE

The Value Of Social Media & Displaying Different Aspects Of Your Personality:
” It’s important to be personable on social media because its not only about business. Let people what your interest and likes are outside of the work arena. [ie: I like to travel, I love to got to the gym]. Being ‘social’ and ‘interactive’ with people really helps –say Voong. ”
With Social media there so many different platforms so it important to understand and you need to know where your audience is and your type of business. If your an artist, Instagram is very powerful because its a visual social media networking platform and that’s where the artsy people go as well as on ‘Pinterest’ and ‘Tumblr’.
If your interested in hosting a conference , Twitter is a great platform because that’s where you post your live tweets, so it depends on your industry. It’s about consistency, posting every day and interacting with your fans. “

” In the world we live in today, it is necessary for every business to be active in the social media world! SV Consulting can help your company reach its fullest potential by implementing social media marketing strategies to increase revenue and consumer engagement. “
