Coast 2 Coast
Dedicated to helping artists get music out to future fans, Coast 2 Coast creates and distributes some of the country's most listened-to mixtapes. In addition to working with such hip-hop luminaries as 50 Cent, Nas, and Flo Rida, the organization helps up-and-coming artists spread their rhymes by creating digital downloads and frisbeeing CDs directly into the players of passing cars. An annual convention further opens doors for superstars, with industry panels, parties, and a concert of some of Coast 2 Coast's top artists from the past year.
