I need someone to write an artist bio for the rapper on my hip-hop label. The bio should be anywhere from 500-700 words and should get people's attention, be light and fun, and give readers an idea of who the artist is and how he started recording, etc.
The first step is to listen to some of his music (it is preferable if you really like hip-hop) and get a sense of his artistic style and what he raps about. (This should take an hour or two.)
The second step is to interview him on the phone and ask him how he got started, his influences, what he's doing, what his plans for the future are, etc. This step should take about 30 minutes or so.
The third step is to write the artist bio to 'paint the picture' so that people understand better who the artist is. You need to tell a story...
I will add a file with some sample bios that I like to give you an idea. I don't really like the bio I attached that much (it's a little bit dry & boring) so please be exciting! The artist is prolific and exciting so I hope your writing will be too!
Again, I'm looking for quality creative writing that really grabs the reader's attention, keeps it, and gets the reader to want to listen to the artist's music and go to his shows, etc.
I'm really looking forward to the final document — thanks for looking!
