Contest: Win a Coolzey CD/DVD Combo


Earlier this year Coolzey released an incredibly ambitious, and lengthily titled, project, Coolzey and the Search for the Hip Hop Hearts Vol. 1 He’s The DJ I’m The Rapper. Enlisting twelve producers to lace him with beats, for twelve straight weeks Coolzey created not just a new song, but a new video for each song. He then pressed up the album, and a DVD of all the videos, in a nice neat package for everyone to enjoy. I have three, count em, THREE, of these CD/DVD combos to give away. All you have to do for a chance to win one is leave a comment telling everyone why you’re cool. It can be funny, it can be random, it can be about anything. The three best comments will take home a CD/DVD combo (so leave your Twitter handle with your entry, or make sure I have a way to get in contact with you).

This contest is only open to people in the US, cuz I’m not ballin on an international shipping kinda budget right now. However, if you’re international and want me to ship it to a friend in the US, I can make that happen.

Enter by telling me why you're cool at: 

Contest ends on October 10th, 2011.
