    I would hit the popular chill spots for the teens on fridays and saturday nights....youre seriously BOUND to get at least 50 sales if you do that one night alone...specially if the cd features a local cat that alotta peeps know and like...

    you prolly already knew that though lol...

    If your good lookin, talk to chicks younger then you.

    If your bad lookin, talk to ugly chicks younger then you.

    Bassicly, use anything you can. Carry some shit with you, demo's, past collabs, magazine features, etc to prove to people your legit.

    Hit up parties, fa real. I've been to a couple parties, and after tellin them about me rappin and what I do an shit, I popped the CD in the stereo and started bumpin. Once they started listenin, they started pullin out money. I think that's prolly the easiest thing you can do.

    Yeah.

    Hit up some of ya homies that sell weed you cool wit.

    Go out Deep.
    It sucks if it's just you, it makes you look desperate.
    Get you some t-shirts made up.
    Ya'll be rockin the shirts, givin some away w/ the CDs.

    In your local area, don't be afraid to GIVE them away.
    Show love to the people around the way.
    They'll buy it when it counts.

    Don't worry about the money, worry about gettin the shit out

    Start promoting to perform live and when you perform live get one of your boys to go with you and sale your CD's before/during/after the deal. If folks like you live, they will buy your CD, don't matter if the quality on it is wack or what. Also, get you a few Tees made and get your boys to wear them and stuff. You just got to get your name out before people buy your stuff.
