Our good friend and Coast 2 Coast DJ, DJ Pain 1, has taken some time in recent weeks to post a great series for upcoming artists on how to promote music online. The series turned into 3 parts from social networking to getting beats to artists for producers. Pain 1 is a certified Gold producer himself with placements with Jeezy and more, as well as an FM radio DJ, so he has a great perspective to dish out some advice. Enjoy!
