How Mike Lev started their logo design journey

Company name

SK4MC

Overview

Sam King is Hip-Hop artist out of Las-Vegas. For the past several years he's been in college playing division one football out in New Mexico. Due to NCAA rules he's been disallowed to distribute his music on the web. Now that he his out of school Sam is ready to let the masses hear his music.

You can find some his older music at:
sk4mc.dubteef.com

Sam is a down to earth, super friendly guy that has a passion for the strange. More importantly Sam is an incredibly dedicated writer and musician. In his free time, Sam studies music and writes poetry.

This past July Sam flew out to North Carolina and recorded over 20 songs in one week! an amazing feat! In the next few months as these song begin to hit the net, we hope a serious fan base will begin to develop.

In the near future Sam is moving to North Carolina to try and cultivate his musical talents work with new people and create beautiful music!

You can follow Sam on Twitter!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We are looking for something that has universal appeal to all. However, we want something that will clearly appeal to the Hip-Hop crowd as well.
It is a bit hard to describe the diverse crowd of the Hip-Hop world.
I will try and put this as simply as possible:
They are always demanding for something that is different and new. Yet at the same time they will quickly recognize and respect something that has the credibility of old.

Requirements

I believe the creation of this logo should be fairly easy.
We already came up with the name "SK4MC"
Which means "Sam King for Master of Ceremonies"
The slogan is straight forward, easy to say and there are many references to the slogan in Sam's newer tracks.

I think it is best to look the pictures below to get an idea of what we are looking for. (also attached is a photo of Sam)

Take a look at what Sam drew up and run with it!
I think he really liked the idea of taking the musical note and incorporating it into the S and K parts of the logo. But this is not a requirement, but rather a recommendation.
Other ideas are welcome!

**It is important that the e=mc2 idea will be incorporated as future projects will rely on this idea.**

Clarity counts!

His name is sam KING, you can go many routes with this, please nothing too cheesy though.

Please try and keep in the back of your mind that this logo will have multiple uses; It will be placed on banners, cd covers, flyers, etc.
That being said there is no color scheme or disallowed colors, but just keep things versatile.

We are artists who love artsy looking stuff!
So please help us out!

Thanks!!!
