fundrboogie: First Crowdfunding Site for Hip-Hop


fundrboogie, the world's first Hip-Hop lifestyle crowdfunding platform, has announced its partnership with FundRazr, a crowdfunding platform, and will launch on July 7. Through this collaboration, fundrboogie benefits from FundRazr's six years of experience, the knowledge gained from hosting over 40,000 campaigns and their technology.

In turn, FundRazr will help provide their tools to fundrboogie to expand crowdfunding's reach into the Hip-Hop community. fundrboogie is seeking project creators, fans, entrepreneurs and businesses to make and support projects for the Hip-Hop community. The platform already boasts its first successful campaign, launching underground rap artist Mr. Complex.

fundrboogie is now expanding into other projects, specifically through an art-currency project initially developed with legendary artist RAMMELLZEE prior to his death. The art-currency project will showcase quarterly the work of innovative artists in an unexpected way. The first campaign in this series is with artist Tyler Hicks and is launching July 7 in conjunction with the official fundrboogie website launch. Hicks created an original piece titled "Blowback" as part of her "Open Season" series for this campaign.

"Whether you're De La Soul or a young entrepreneur, crowdfunding is an effective way to get supporters excited and involved with your project," says Nkonoki-Ward. "Though Hip-Hop is one of the most dominant cultural influences on the planet, until now it has not been represented or understood by existing crowdfunding platforms. fundrboogie acts somewhat like an incubator for projects needing funding, offering campaign strategy development tips, help with PR and connecting successful projects with industry professionals and companies."

FundRazr founder and CEO Daryl Hatton says the partnership is the natural next step for crowdfunding. "As crowdfunding moves into the mainstream, people will prefer platforms that support their specific community of interest. The partnership between fundrboogie and FundRazr is the perfect solution for them. It provides customers with fundrboogie's intense focus and expertise in the Hip-Hop community powered by FundRazr's world-leading crowdfunding technology."
