This morning (July 25) it was revealed that veteran Pomona, California singer/rapper Kokane achieved a Top 200 mark on the album sales chart for his Dr. Kokastein retail mixtape. Hosted by DJ Assassin, the Bud E Boy Entertainment release features Young Jeezy, E-40, Tha Alkaholiks and the late KMG.
Additionally, the man also known as Mr. Kane saw a chart surge from his 2011 release, The Legend Continues. Also released on Bud E Boy, this album had not previously reached the Top 200.
HipHopDX contacted Kokane for his thoughts on the selling over 5,000 units this week. “Props to all my fans out there and much love to the media for continuing to support my music as a independent label,” said the man who worked extensively on Dr. Dre’s The Chronic and Snoop Dogg’s Tha Last Meal. “I am very pleased with this week’s sales report. My company, Bud E Boy Entertainment’s promotional and marketing team, along with a host of other entities worked relentlessly for months building a strong platform and Internet presence, which made this all possible. We also had an opportunity within those month’s to connect with key people globally to implement my plans. Thanks and God bless to all the independent labels.”
