Cometessa pronounced as (Come-Tes-Sa), have been grinding in the music industry since 1990. It all started when she was thought how to DJ by two of the best DJ’s in the music industry whom DJ Dummy still djs for Common the actor & rapper and also thought by DJ LS1 who was the DJ for “Smooth the Hustler”. Thereafter; Tessa as some calls her went on to being a promoter; which was introduced to her by Fantum Artist & Producer of B.E.B ENT.
Tessa’s passion for the music industry has given her hands on experienced in many hats such as: freelance photographer in which landed her quite a few awesome gigs sitting in the same V.I.P celebrities even some great footage as a videographer. Tessa was always often made fun of since she always carried a camera around and back than 1991 video recorder were huge. She used a Panasonic VHS Cassette which was the style back than ironically she was ahead of the game people would things like”You about to shoot a movie ma”. Tessa’s camera was her weapon to get into the industry events; while everyone wanted to be a rapper her camera got her into the best events in town.
Tessa continued to do promotions throughout the years for many record labels such: Violator Record, Atlantic Record, Jive, Milk Promotions, Karl Kani, Skittles, The “Up N Smoke Tour” where I got chance to meet Xzibit, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog and actually promoted the Snoop Dog clothing line and drove his promotional van in NYC areas. Tessa as also worked in the BIG Pun ” I’m Not A Player” campaign, Notorious BIG album release, Notorious KIM album release just to name a few till the year of 2000. After 911 the music industry had taken a different route where the Promotions & Marketing game had drastically changed were it wasn’t as easy and consistent with record labels to have street team on the street along with the dramatic changed of staff. Meaning new staff new start and new introduction; in 2005 Tessa had the vision to have her own TV show. Tessa became a TV Producer for BCAT Public Access Television now BRIC Media to make her story short her dream became a reality that same year with show titled PlugmeTV with a slogan “Where We Connect”.
Plugme TV Tessa, the host got all her resources together and got a few industry heads to come on her show such as: DJ Rad of the Triple Beam Team, Fantum producer of Bang’Em Beats Ent/ B.E.B Ent, Tech the DJ, DJ Kid Capri, A+, Wais P, Mesai for Sr. Editor for Rap Fanatic, Ghost Producer of Lab9 Beatz., Johnny Floss, Brite the list goes on.
Plugme TV “Where We Connect” also covered a few car shows within the 5 Boroughs of NYC; as well covered events and the community within the Five Boroughs of NYC. While on the grind with Plugme TV Tessa was asked to Co-Host a radio show temporary that turned out to be a 3 years experienced on WLIB NY of 91.5 FM from 2000-2003 that’s pretty swell for a 1st timer to land a gig on a FM station; you can’t knock a girl hustle. Tessa’s ambition didn’t stop there; she envision of having her radio show than Plugme Radio sister to Plugme TV came to existence she created an online radio show that was LIVE for 3 years over the internet. Tessa created radio drops, promos for different Co.’s as well created radio format shows and placed them over the Internet every Tuesday’s. Plugme Radio became a brand; all the promos were made possible by Fantum from Bang’Em Beats studio bangembeats.com; the man himself emcee/artist/producer & music engineer and video editor without Fantum of Bang’Em Beats Ent www.bangembeat.com. It wouldn’t be possible without Fantum. Fantum understood her vision and helped Tessa bring it to life till this day.
