This career was requested by Zoebot a very long time ago. I just checked my (pretty long) list of uploaded careers here on MTS and I noticed I hadn't uploaded it.
So I decided to do that now.
This career was requested without chance cards.
I am planning to upload my general chance cards and PTO versions of this career later.
The career has a unique GUID and is EP Compatible, so it won't overwrite anything.

Level 1 Title Music Promotions Flyer Distributor Description It’s as far from your dream job as you can get - you’re on the streets handing out flyers to promote artists, when it’s your name you’d rather see - but this isn’t the be all and end all. You’re a regular on the talent show circuit, and sing everywhere from the streets to open-microphone club nights – all you need is to work on those vocal and creative skills, and perhaps find a day job that brings you closer to where you need to be. You hear there may be an opening at a record company in the city.

Level 2 Title Record Company Receptionist Description The money’s still peanuts, but it’s a toe-in-the-door to one of the biggest record companies around - SimHotHitz. Your contact with people is limited to signing them into the building, but it’s a start - all the big shot executives give you a wink every morning, so at least they know your face. It’s just about drawing their attention to your talent if you can only find the opportunity – their turnover of assistants seems to be quite high, so improve your professional skills and maybe you can get a transfer from the limited opportunities of the reception desk.

Level 3 Title PA to Senior Music Executive Description Yes – you’re all the way in - working directly for one of the hottest executives in the company; assisting them as they seek, sign and sell the latest names to hit the airwaves and music channels – it’s not you, but it could be, if you strategize how to do a good job while finding the opportunity to showcase your own talents as a potential artist. Build your professional skills enough to keep your job, but don’t forget about nurturing your raw talent and using your position to network with the right people.

Level 4 Title R&B Group Member Description It’s finally that leap into the pan – who needs to be a professional dogs-body when you can join up-and-coming R&B group, Simlicious? Two lead members are already earmarked for solo success, and you’re one of three struggling to be noticed from the background – there’s so far been some radio interviews and opening shows for bigger artists - but a long way to go before it’s all about you. Forget professional skills – there may not be guaranteed longevity for this group - concentrate on getting yourself noticed as the next big thing, and gaining contacts to help elevate your career.

Level 5 Title Solo Newcomer Description Your persistence has paid off, and the time to shine has finally come – you’re being brought into the forefront and the promotion flyers have your name on...as a featured artist with Hip-Hop crew SimlishSquad, for now. You’ll have your own debut too, of course, but have a lot to prove if you want to secure an album release and national tour. It’s not going to be all fun and games – you’ll need to be prepared for the media attention, long days in the studio and shows most nights – the hard work starts now. You know what you’ve got to do.

Level 6 Title 2-Album Signed Recording Artist Description The future is bright as you’re now contracted into a two-album deal, and nominated as Best R&B Newcomer. Life is sweet and you’re finally reaping the benefits; time to splash out on a new home and car to match your flashy lifestyle. Critics begin labelling you a one-album-wonder and wait in suspense to see what you’ll come with next – you’ve got the juice to sustain another offering, but you’ll need to negotiate more creative control in your next deal, and have contacts on speed-dial for some hot collaborations - throwing a VIP party could bring some new faces.

Level 7 Title 5-Album Signed Recording Artist Description Best R&B Album, Artist, Video...the awards keep flowing, and your fan-base growing. You now have a five-album deal, plus a Greatest Hits option, and can call the shots to co-produce your music. You’ll be working harder and longer than ever, and a world tour is upcoming, so don’t expect much time at home. The critics will soon question if you have anything more to give, and you wonder how long you can sustain the time and physical pressures of touring. Perhaps you’ll eventually slow it down and focus on producing, so nurture those skills while you’re working with the best.

Level 8 Title Super Star Writer-Producer Description With a wealth of experience and contacts, you can now take a break from the music rat-race and let the opportunities come to you; you’re writing, producing and weaving your signature sound into music for the biggest upcoming urban artists – and in hot demand. Without touring and interviews, you’re finally at liberty to really enjoy your free time and money – why not throw some parties for fun or take a long vacation? What’s next? Maybe you want to start launching your own artists and really running things - be strategic and see your prowess in terms of business prospects.

Level 9 Title Record Company CEO Description With all you’ve acquired in your career, it makes sense to put it to good use and set up your own company – now your focus is scouting and signing new talent, managing their careers, and all the while still integral to the writing and producing. You know the vital ingredients and you’re seeing your artists mirror your success - and during awards season, it’s your camp that swoops in and cleans up. You’re the most valuable player among the industry’s top dogs, but with your new-found business acumen, you can venture into many other areas – the world is your oyster.

Level 10 Title Legendary Music Mogul and Entrepreneur Description Work hardly feels like work anymore – if not penning your music career memoirs, you’re overseeing your slick new clothing and jewellery line, R&B music magazine and urban music TV channel, among other business interests – lucky you have hundreds of minions to carry out the day-to-day management and work. So how else will you fill your time? There’s your community music project for underprivileged youths interested in the music business, to which you regularly give time, and you’ve just signed a deal to feature as a judge on a vocal talent TV show – it really is all fun and games now.

Original iconhttp://www.iconfinder.com/icondetai...one_record_icon Justification by requester You may recall, I designed the Hip-Hop and R&B careers as separate counter-parts for those wishing to play their Sims as urban music artists - but while the former sounds more suited to a male, and the latter a female, each are very carefully worded to still be completely open to the idea of a female rapper or a male singer. If players then want to pair up their sim couples as a kind of Beyonce and Jay-Z pairing, or even a Nicki Minaj and Drake, they can.
As I've said previously, I didn't think the other requests you received for Hip-Hop or Rap careers were as well thought-out by their writers, and I think Sims 2 is missing a singing career to go alongside it - the game's Rock Star is not representative enough for the music industry.
I put a lot of work (previously) into writing these career options, and am forever grateful that you accepted and completed the first part, but would be overjoyed to have this second part to go with it.
You have said previously that it is not necessary for me to offer to donate money to a charity cause of your choice, but if you do change your mind on this it would be my pleasure to do so.
Thank you for your consideration and, if this is accepted, your time.
