With that said, we have made it to the final round where winners are now determined. If you voted for us in Round 1, voting isn’t done…we have this one last round (which is the most important). If you could, please head over to: http://www.broadjam.com/mhha/ to cast your final votes for this year’s awards! Myself as well as my RiP Records Family are up for a total of 5 awards.

It would truly mean a lot to myself and my RiP Records Family if they could take home an award for their musical accomplishments for the first time in their musical careers. Pr, Influence, and TruMotiv (pka Too Bogus) have all been rocking with me since the early 2000’s and it is because of them that Rip is who he is today. Thanks to everyone for your continued support over the years.

In 2013, 18 year old Aprina Paul from Madison, WI answered an ad on Craigslist not knowing who or what lay on the other end. She was never to be seen from again. Her body was found in a home in Evansville, WI burned to the point where authorities couldn’t prove a murder.
Writer/Director Rafael Ragland and I have been asked by the mother of Aprina to make a movie on this story in hopes of raising awareness of the dangers of internet dating & preventing something like this from happening again.
We are looking to raise $10,000 to cover production costs to tell this story.
Production costs that will be incurred during filming: Wardrobe, makeup, travel expenses, Production Assistants, crew, talent, props. Sound/Audio production & engineering, equipment (upgrades + new), locations, promotion/marketing and more.
