2012 RapRise Awards: Power Player

Posted by rapRISE |


This is it. The ‘Power Player’ award is our equivalent to ‘artist of the year’. This is awarded to the artist that dominated our site the past 12 months.

From a relatively unknown artist, to our Surprise Riser, to Power Player – all in one year. MikeThomas is exactly what we look for from artists that make their way to our site. His passion for what he does not only shows through his music, but in the impact that he now leaves on our site. Remember, all of the RapRise Awards (except for the ‘Staff Picks’) are based on statistical excellence on our site. MikeThomas has been just that - statistically excellent.

This has been quite the year for one of our favorite Rising stories, and we all can’t wait to see what he has in store for the next 12 months.

Congratulations MikeThomas!

  • What’s Your Name?

    Who are you? Really. Ask yourself that. The first step to making a presence is knowing who you are. The one thing that should always be consistent throughout your brand, (yes, you are a brand), is your name. Occasional name changes aside, your name always be the same. But when upcoming rapper, let’s call him “Kid Magic”, releases new music and his YouTube account calls him “K.I.D. Magic”, song title calls him “KidMagic”, Twitter calls him “Kiidd Magic”, and so on and so forth, how are his fans supposed to connect to his brand?
