P-Rice (About to) Do New York City

Life can offer so many opportunities and so can being a DJ. As being a radio DJ for my college radio station hosting the known rap/hip-hop P-Rice Show on 89.5fm WSKB; I love working with music and have dreams to work within the entertainment industry; now I have the opportunity to visit New York City, let alone visiting the Big Apple I will be staying in New York for a whole entire week. I have only visited New York City once and it was a day trip in which I could barely grasp the full experience within a New York minute- so now were back at it to have the “real deal” experience.

The attraction that brings my fellow DJ’s on the radio board along with myself to New York is the College Music Journalism Fest (CMJ), in which we get the inside to all the clubs and venues that be hosting the CMJ events in New York. If you aren’t familiar with the CMJ fest it is a music festival in which known and underground bands perform for a week and many college students from all around visit to network with DJ’s, promote their own DJ shows and catch a glimpse of the front and back scenes of the media/music industry. Some artists that can be seen at CMJ fest are known musical legends such as Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest; in fact I heard through a fellow DJ that Q-Tip was suppose to be at CMJ last year but was not able to make it. Myself, P-Rice, is hoping for that to be different this year because we will have our Tribe Called Quest shirt with us ready to be rocked when and or if we see Q-Tip and hoping to get a picture with him. Maybe he’s heard of the P-Rice Show- wouldn’t you think so? In all seriousness though, wouldn’t a real hip-hop DJ be hoping out of his shoes for an opportunity like this? 

In preparation for our New York City trip next week, we are having a radio show dedicated to the rare, underground, independent New York Rap/Hip-Hop scene. You can tune in to our show tonight (Wednesday October 9th, 2013 here: http://tunein.com/radio/WSKB-895-s22830/) at 6-8pm (eastern), 3-9pm (pacific) if you are in the Westfield/Springfield area 89.5fm WSKB on your dial should work fine. Catch y’all on the other side of the mic and if your in New York give us a shout out! 1 Love.

  1. P-Rice!

    Great blog man love to see you pursuing your dreams in New York, best of luck out there.

    Your voice really comes through at the end when you say, “Catch y’all on the other side of the mic and if your in New York give us a shout out! 1 Love.” This shows the readers that you are talking directly to them almost anticipating a response.

    Your 8 keywords, in my opinion, are:

    DJ
    Radio show
    New York
    Music
    Rap/Hip Hop
    Underground
    Entertainment
    Oppurtunity

  2. Voice: “I have only visited New York City once and it was a day trip in which I could barely grasp the full experience within a New York minute- so now were back at it to have the “real deal” experience.” I like the whole first paragraph but i think that the beginning of it is slightly a run on. I think just by breaking that long statement into a few sentences would be better for the reader and the clarity of your post. You do a good job with the whole story telling aspect as well. It is hard to incorperate this into each post but I think you really have a grasp of how to do with without sacrificing your voice at all. Well done. I hope all goes well in NYC 🙂
    key words/phrases: Life can offer so many opportunities, college radio station, DJ, music, entertainment industry, experiences, rap & hip-hop, come tune in

  3. P-Rice,

    Your voice has a lot of emotion-a passion for your desired career being in the entertainment industry. As far as clarity, this post is certainly clear and the language you use is definitely witty. I thought it was pretty hilarious and clever when you say “see you on the other side of the mic”.
    The festival you mention seems really cool and I’m super jealous you have the opportunity to go. Not only will the trip be a blast but it looks like a great chance to see what goes behind the scenes of the influence of what appeals to our generation of music. Some of the artists look pretty tight too, bro. Have a blast!

  4. With voice, “Life can offer so many opportunities and so can being a DJ.” Good quote and shows how much you really care for music.

    Clarity- Just maybe shorten your middle paragraph into 2 separate paragraphs.

    Keywords- Life, opportunities, DJ, New York, real deal, radio, underground, independent,
