an entertainment update for the brand
Introducing #IfYouLoveUsSupportUS Campaign
We are very excited to announce two major projects that is going on with the brand:
Officially launched our BKRTV TShirt Apparel line to pre-order (more details in the newsletter) via Booster, which is partnered by CustomInk. Because of our previous order with the company and a strong relationship was built, pertaining to our brand, CustomInk recommended us to start a campaign to get us started with our FULL apparel line
Kickstarter (similar to IndieGogo) but better. The last campaign was not successful and unfortunately did not meet our goal of $1500, so we did lower the goal to $500 as a small start. More details will be available on the website
Through the month of March, if you really love us, please support us and our brand by either purchasing a T-Shirt or a donation to help us get to the next level of entertainment
The Real Trap Queenz of the OC web series is being

It was an offer we could not pass by. If you're already up to speed with our web series, please make sure to click below to leave a review
BurKenRodTV Has Achieved An Milestone with Facebook Page
We have made it to 500 likes on our Facebook Page
Still have a long way to go, but it's YOU who made it possible for us, so we genuinely thank you from the bottom of our heart
We know that we have been a little bit quiet in the month of April, hence is why we did not send out any newsletter. But to the ones who subscribed to our website, our apologies within the email that you received, is out of date (we are currently working on a way to have the newsletter already done and ready to be sent out at the beginning of each month).
But nevertheless, so many great things has happened within the month of March & April. Of course, we can't say too much, but we can give a few details of our accomplishments:
What's the 411 (Month of April RECAP)
Our March Madness sale with the BKRTV Official T-shirt was a HUGE success, thanks to you all who pre-order a shirt. We sold over 50 shirts, which was the goal & with donations, raised almost $300. A M A Z I N G!
YouTube Creator sent us a congratulatory email on our success for the month of April. We are ALWAYS busy, staying consistent and creating content. That's just the beginning
As far as our emoji catch phrase T-shirt, we had to put it on pause for this month, to make sure that everything is squared away and the marketing strategy is up to par. Be on the lookout for advertising (we know that we presented the T-shirts on a visual concept during March Madness) because now, with this unique distributor, we have the options to choose up to 3 different colors for each shirt (how DOPE is that?) so that's where the headache is at: CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLORS FOR EACH SHIRT FOR EVERYONE! So this month, our focus is on choosing the colors, the price & the quantity of the shirt to sale (STAY TUNED)
Our EP...is in the works! Our goal is to release it within the 3rd quarter, aiming for our 2nd anniversary as a brand (9/11/17) but not the full EP, only 3-4 tracks. We have already came up with the title and track list, so be on the lookout later on in the season ️
Again, thank you so much for being apart of our movement for greatness. We want to see everyone win, so why hate on the next person. Always remember this: "You Gotta Watch, Because Someone Is Always Watching YOU"
What's the 411 (Month of may RECAP)

BurKenRod TV Anniversary:
Our 2nd Year Anniversary visual presentation was received very well and here is the surprise ending: We will be releasing music to the public and we could not be more excited and anxious to present this gift to everyone. This is the most personal and vulnerable project next to the BurKenRod TV Documentary where we had to be nothing but candid, open and expressive
Interview: Rambo The Chief:
BurKenRod TV has completed another artist interview for the books. Rambo Lee is an artist who is also a Memphis native who has performed a number of shows and events, has an EP and moved across the country to Los Angeles to take the music scene by storm. We talked with Rambo about his passion for music, his stance on artist independence, being yourself and establishing your own unique style as an artist. This was awesome and if you want to see the interview firsthand, check it out at YouTube.com/burkenrodtv
Shoutout for Periscope SuperFans:
Periscope give us as content creators an opportunity to broadcast live around the world to anyone who watches. It's a blessing to gain followers on this particular app, but once you maintain consistent followers and gain SuperFans, it's even more thrilling. The Superfans of Periscope get their title by producing hearts. This is a method of showing love and expressing to the broadcasters that you enjoy what they're doing. This month we have all agreed and the numbers don't lie, the Periscope SuperFan to spotlight is King Amir. Thank you for going above and beyond with sharing our broadcast, pumping hearts, and inviting many others to view our livestream.
Artists Events Attended:
We had the opportunity to attend an artist event recently that was definitely one to witness. The Cali to New York Music Competition was at Harvard Bar in Los Angeles, California. We met an array of artists, music producers, promoters etc. we witness such great underground hip hop artists blaze the stage in a battle of epic proportion. Just to highlight a few artists that caught our eye, Rambo the Chief, Mrs Black Dyamond and a few others tore the roof off the place.
Fun Fact About BurKenRod TV:
This may be the most simple thing that may not matter to anyone else, but we love trying local pizza restaurants. The chain pizza joints are ok if there's no other option, but when it's local, it's made with love. At least we always hope and pray that's the case when trying any new restaurant. Put a stamp on it, BurKenRod TV loves good local pizza.
Shoutout to God, all of our followers, fellow creators, fans, family along with the YouTube and Periscope community. Everything is in place because of you all and the gratitude that we have is because of you.
The ONLY way to success is making it to the top, ALL THE WAY UP, so let's make 2017 OUR year and MAKE MAGIC
