Check this awesomeness.
So I preordered my copy of the Amazing album, “The Stimulus Package,” about 2 weeks before it dropped. If I can give my money directly to the source, I’ll always take that route… I wanna make sure my money gets to the right place. Especially in this economy.
So in return for making a direct order from The Fifth Element Online, you got an AWESOME package of stuff included with your CD, which already had some of the best packaging and liner notes of the last 12 months. All of this for $14.50 including the shipping, which frankly is a steal.
Now, if that wasn’t enough to activate the Music Nerd in you, wait until you see what I got in the mail on saturday from Jake One, Freeway and The Fifth Element… My Official Stimulus Package Check. Just when I thought it was over, Jake and Freeway take music marketing, packaging and over all coolness to a whole other level with this one…
Musicians and those in the music business trying to figure out how to move units in this day of the digital download…. Take note.
THIS is how you do an album release. Giving the fans not only the great packaging and liner notes and a great album of music… but paying attention to and showing appreciation for the fans out there, with little things like this. These are the things that keep your fans dedicated, and waiting for more. In my case, its got me up and blogging (even tho I’m not really feeling it) because if you guys can take the time to sit down and sign I don’t know HOW many of these things… the least I can do is blog about how AMAZING it is, along with a full album review (coming shortly).
Seriously, I havent seen anything THIS thorough since Tanya Morgan came through with the Brooklynatti Survival Kit last year. That was pretty amazing.
Anyways, enjoy the photos, and spread the word. If you havent purchased that Jake One/Freeway album, direct order that through their distributor, Fifth Element. You Cant Lose.
Also, a lot of you noticed that yesterday was one of the first days in history of this newbie blog where I didnt post anything. Just to let you know, I will be taking a day or two off for a minute to attend to some family business (drama), reup my blog supply and get back to you with more good music. If anything major happens, including news with VH1Soul, I will have someone update and get you informed quickly.
Thanks for reading.
