Upcoming Hip Hop
Producers Compete for Industry Submissions
12/23/05 - LatinRapper.com news
Veteran producer Domingo has partnered with Bangin-Beats.com
to give upcoming producer’s an opportunity to produce for rap
legend Kool G. Rap. In a contest slated to start officially
December 8th, producers can submit up to five tracks for a
chance to win one of five open slots. The top producers, as
chosen by Bangin-Beats management, will have music shopped
directly to Kool G Rap through an exclusive agreement between
production guru and producer manager Domingo.
Kool G Rap made recent headlines for a rumored deal on the
table with 50 Cent’s G-Unit records. To many, the likelihood
of an agreement putting G Rap on G-Unit has gone up, after a
recent project with DJ Whoo Kid. It Pre-empted a project with
Green Lantern, the former Shady Records DJ who abruptly left
the crew earlier this year.
Domingo kept things in perspective on the subject by stating
that “Everything is speculation right now.”
Solidifying an already strong relationship with the production
community, Bangin-Beats stirred recent industry buzz when they
accepted beat submissions for underground talent Joell Ortiz,
in a deal struck between the leading sound design firm and
veteran Hip Hop industry A & R Mike Heron.
Asked how their new industry opportunity with Domingo came
about, Bangin-Beats president Kirk Rothrum PKA Kirk T said:
“Domingo has been Fam for years, my first experience with him
had me in talks with Yosumi for a Masta Ace project. He’s
about as thorough as you can get.”
“We’re now trying to reach beyond the standard business model
of a sound company. We’re staffed by grinding producers and
when given the chance, pass on opportunities to grinding
producers. This contest just takes things to what’s logically
the next level.
Kool G Rap’s impact on Hip Hop can’t be overstated, widely
considered a lyrical monster who ate an entire generation of
MCs for lunch, and is poised to do it again without missing a
*Winning does not guarantee Kool G Rap will use your track.
“An opportunity for upcoming producer’s to submit their music
in circles they don’t otherwise have access to, is a prize in
itself… Their hottest tracks submitted directly to Kool G Rap,
and possibly others, if Domingo is
feelin you like that”!
Five lucky producers will also win a $50 Bangin-Beats
soundware credit and a Battle King trophy.
