So You Can do the Chicken Noodle Soup. But Can You Pop, Lock & Drop It?
Jive Recording Artist Huey launches YouTube Video Contest
(Brooklyn, NY November 13th, 2006) Jive Records and St. Louis emcee Huey is proud to announce the launch of a YouTube video contest in support of his breakout single “Pop, Lock & Drop It.” Fans submit videos of their interpretation of the song for a chance to win a Sony HD TV surround sound system. Huey, age 19, will release his debut album, Notebook Paper, on Jive Records in early 2007.
Huey showed promise as an artist from the age of 12, when he began producing beats and writing rhymes for upcoming rappers in the infamous St. Louis neighborhood of Kinloch. Fast-forward 5 years and Huey had partnered up with local entrepreneur Angela Richardson and formed his own production company, Huey Records. Local clubs and regional radio put “Pop, Lock & Drop It” into regular rotation, and it wasn't long before he started attracting attention at a national level. Jive Records VP of A&R Mickey “MeMpHiTz” Wright recognized Huey's young talent and signed him immediately. Wright has helped along the careers of artists such as YoungBloodZ, J-Kwon and T-Pain. Huey is now hard at work on his debut album, Notebook Paper. Why this title? Huey explains, “Well for one, when it all comes down to it, I am making paper [money] off of a notebook. And two–I sat down, watched the streets, and placed the streets into a notebook.”
Will Huey's “Pop, Lock & Drop It” be the next dance craze? From the thousands of views of fan's videos on YouTube, it looks like it may be. For complete contest info, go to .
