ProHipHop is doing some video scouting for a mobile hip hop network that Mobile Lingo is considering launching in the next few months. Right now ProHipHop is just looking to hear from folks who have or are shooting hip-hop and rap music videos and would be interested in providing short clips, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes long, to be shown on cellphone.

ProHipHop is primarily interested in unsigned and independent artists as well as artists on small labels that would be interested in providing the clips for free. Obviously, the payoff would be in promotion and we are planning a related website to feature the best clips and information about the hip-hop / rap artists.

The use would be nonexclusive, so you could do whatever else you want with the clips. However, currently they can''t handle material involving violence, displays of weaponry, drug use, nudity, profanity or similar content. ProHipHop knows that makes it difficult for a lot of artists but to work with the carriers and get prominent, they have to work within serious limits. But if you''ve shot a full length music video, you could do a special edit for the shorter clip that would meet those requirements.

If you have video posted online, please let ProHipHop know. Otherwise, simply send them an email letting them know that you''re interested and that you''d like to be updated as information becomes available.

Also, if you have other ideas that you''d like ProHipHop to pass along to Mobile Lingo, send those as well to:


For now, please don''t send any attachments but let ProHipHop know what's up, ask any questions you have, etc. Clyde Smith of ProHipHop is kind of excited about this because he mostly had to ignore requests to check out music and that kind of thing, so he is glad to be involved with a project that should be helpful for artists as they build.

ProHipHop.com is part of the NetWeed network owned and ran by Clyde Smith. Check out all their sites at http://www.netweed.com/
