8/25/05 - news


Latin Rap Conference

The “Who’s Who” in the music industry will descend on New York City on September 20 to kick off the third edition of the Latin Rap Conference (LRC) at Latin Quarters. Over 100 Latino artists, more than 30 premier record labels, over 60 radio stations, ASCAP and BMI, top marketing companies, DJs and Latino innovators are confirmed to participate in this year’s event.

Exclusive presentations will position the LRC as the premier forum to learn about the Latino rap, hip hop and Reggaeton movement.

Four informative and substantive panel discussions, a music showcase for top up-and-coming Latino artists and the industry’s first Latino Youth Town Hall meeting where top artists and executives face off with the elusive bilingual teen consumer.

“We are thrilled that the LRC has attracted incredible talent and industry visionaries. Their candid insight will be invaluable to conference attendees,” said Jesse Perez pka Shysti, Chairman of the LRC. “This is the first time that all segments of the Latin Rap community are being brought together with major label and radio executives to talk about the future.” The LRC is an organization dedicated to fostering the growth, education, empowerment and development of good business practices for the Latin Rap industry.

Confirmed participants include Univision Radio, Clear Channel Radio, New York’s Hot 97, Los Angeles’ Power 106 Pocos Pero Locos, Mun2, Billboard, ASCAP, BMI, Warner Music Group, Wu Tang Latino, Sony BMG, Universal Music Group, UBO, Fuego Magazine, EMI Latin, Sirius Radio, Machete Records, and Mediabase.

Rich Isaacson, of the Fuerte Group, an LRC member and Conference organizer added: “We recognized the need to create a national forum that represented a segmented, but powerful group of pioneers, to share each other’s visions and enable ongoing collaboration. I hope the conference brings together all of these important regional groups and business leaders to establish a vibrant community that can exercise its collective power as the fastest-growing segment within the music industry.” Fuerte Group is a multi-cultural music promotion and lifestyle marketing company with specific expertise in the US Hispanic Market (Fuerte Marketing, Fuerte Management and Fuerte Records).
