Heat From The Streets
 
DJ Siren with street team on the island of Lanai.
 
Hey what's up everyone! DJ Siren, here to share with you all about The S.O.G. Crew Street Team that's fired up and rearing to go this summer and fall. Last year, the Street Team pushed out 10,000 copies of the 'Up That Game' album that was released in stores in August. But, blessed were those that actually recieved a copy out on the streets before they hit the stores in June and July. The Street Team was seen all over the United States in major cities working hard. Thank you to all of you who have helped The S.O.G. Crew by picking up a cd. Now, the Street Team will be expanding and taking in more members in different states who will help promote on the streets.
 
I just want to show some love and say 'Amazing job!' to Battle Ax for putting together the newsletters that you all are now reading. He and I will be bringing to you all the 411 from the streets across the U.S. Stay tuned in for future events and articles; and don't be shy, hit us up and let us know how we're doing!
 
Much love and blessings,
DJ SiREN :)
