Beats and production are pretty dope in parts. Some of it goes a bit off piste! Same goes for the raps. There's a bit in the middle that doesn't work for me, but there are sections that sounds dope.

Pretty dope. 

Don't know the original so don't really know what you've done with it ;) Logic's verse is sick though so good choice of track there.

This is a great project. I checked out the Kickstarter page, you've put together a great campaign with an awesome set of rewards.

You're clearly part of an exciting and tight music community in SF + beyond, which didn't really come through from the video and I only figured out from the Kickstarter page. 

Look forward to checking out the space some day IRL ;)

Love seeing the idea we discussed long ago on a flight come to life! Great to see the product fully functioning.

Wonder if you should consider the language of "experts" instead of / in addition to "curators". E.g. for startups who want product/business plan feedback?

But looks like you're focused on creatives; can you do the 2 in parallel?

In terms of spreading the word, I guess the best channels would be for the influential experts/curators you enlist to promote it to their fans/followers. Obvious stuff ;) Question is - what are the barriers
