Chris Lighty has managed some of the biggest artists in the business. 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, Mariah Carey and Swizz Beatz are all clients of Lighty's Violator Management.
Now up and coming artists will get the chance to get first hand feedback from the man himself, through his new website pleaselistentomydemo.com. For a fee of $10.00 artists can submit their music in to be critiqued by Lighty, co-founder Michael Dizon and other staff.
"We won't Simon Cowell you out. We will give you feedback. If we like it or dislike it," Lighty told the New York Daily News.
Lighty doesn't think enough artists are getting the chance to be heard.
"We are in the Internet age," Lighty said. "There are so many creative people out there. We are not reaching everybody. Just listen to the radio. It's the same 15 artists all day everyday."
The new service launches Monday May 16.
