MEKKA DON RAISES $20K in 30 days in crowdfunding campaign releases debut album "The Dream Goes On"



In order to release a great album, a few things must be present: great production, great engineering, and great marketing. If only it were free. Every Indie artist soon realizes the exorbitant amount of money it takes to compete in this industry, and without a major deal or investors, there are few options.

Mekka Don took to Indiegogo.com, a crowdfunding platform, to raise money for his album. His goal was $12,500, but his fans didn't stop there. He was able to raise over $21,000 from over 300 funders in a little over 30 days. 

The result of his efforts is his debut album, "The Dream Goes On," which was released today worldwide on iTunes and Amazon. The 10 track album chronicles his inspiring story of leaving a lucrative corporate position to pursue his true passion - music. He also delves into his thoughts on what it takes to be successful, relationships, and fighting through adversity. And on "Rockstar" and "Adrian Peterson" he has some fun while delivering a message.

Check out Mekka Don's new album on iTunes and Amazon. Links below:

Awesome weekend! #Juice

This past weekend was eventful to say the least. From the ABC feature, a live TV performance of "Juice" on Fox 28, another impromptu appearance on ABC, "Juice" spinning on WNCI 97.9, and a radio interview with Matt Finkes and Archie on 95.5, the media was ever so present! I am grateful for that.
Outside of Ohio State's victory over Wisconsin, other highlights include the official launch of the "Juice" t-shirt line with J America and OSU, meeting Urban Meyer and Shelley Meyer after OSU practice and eating dinner with the team, my performance at Eleven Warriors "Eat Too Brutus", chopping it up with former teammates and Buckeye players, going to the game and hearing "Juice" live in the stadium,
















meeting with Power 107.5 (Mekka Don music coming soon on there!), and hanging out with Buckeyes fans all over! We also shot the first promo video for "Juice" so look out for that. Check out the pictures below and make sure to get a Juice tee from Buckeye Corner (www.buckeyecorner.com), Lids (Lids.com) or OSU Athletics official shop site. And cop "Juice" from iTunes or Amazon if you haven't already. And as always...GO BUCKS! #Juice

Mekka Don releases Buckeye Anthem "Juice"


Mekka Don will be releasing his new single  ”Juice” for Buckeye Nation on Tuesday August 6th that will be played at every home football game at The Shoe this upcoming season.  The song plays on the Urban Meyer mantra of who’s got the  “juice”, and features a catchy beat, hypnotic hook and plenty of fiery lyrics to get Buckeye Nation juiced up for games this year.

Mekka Don’s last Buckeye release “Let’s Go O-H-I-O” was played in The Shoe before every home game, licensed for commercial use by multiple outlets, and was performed at The Ohio State v. Indiana Men’s Basketball Game.  Additionally the song was used to create a “Let’s Go O-H-I-O” fan video with OSU which served as a rallying cry for the Men’s Basketball team during March Madness, and sparked the creation of a successful t-shirt by Columbus based company Homage.  “With the reception for ‘Let’s Go O-H-I-O’ last year and all of the excitement surrounding Ohio State Football this year, I felt like it was only right to give the fans something new to jam to before football games.  We’ve been through a lot the last couple years and its time for us to regain our rightful place in the college football landscape.  We all have to bring the Juice every single week,” says Mekka Don.

Juice is available for download athttp://shop.mekkadon.com .

Mekka Don is a former Ohio State football player, and OSU graduate who is a rising star in the music industry. He was named and MTV Freshman last year by MTVu, has licensed music to multiple networks including ESPN and BTN, and has been featured on several media outlets including MTV, VH1, and Sirius radio.
