New York, NY (October 7, 2008) - What's good, Loud.com?
Our contest is entering the last few rounds, and we're looking forward to letting you know what we have planned for the Finals. Before we do that, though, there's still have a few slots to fill. That said, we'd like to announce the winner of our Round 6 Producer Winner: VBeats07, aka VDub!! We had to dig a little bit to find a sound that hit us hard, but it was worth the search. Check back next Monday for the start of Winners Week, when we'll be launching interviews each day with our most recent Finalists.
SRC artists Akon and David Banner have been busy these last few days. Akon debuted his new single, "I'm So Paid" featuring Lil Wayne, exclusively through Loud.com. Be sure to hit the stores or iTunes to cop "Freedom" when it drops 11/25. Earlier in the week, Banner dropped an exclusive track called "When You Hear What I Got To Say" on Loud.com; peep that here.
Don't forget... Sunday, October 12, Loud.com and Strong Arm Management will be out at Don Hills on 511 Greenwich Street for the King of NY Beat Battle, sponsored by Dynamic Producer and Strong Arm Management's Producer Swap Meet. There will celebrity judges, prizes and a chance for you to play your beats for prospective consumers, artists and business-people alike. Bring that FIRE!! Get over here for details.
Grafh stopped through the SRC Offices for his turn on Loud.com Favorites last week (you can check the footage here), and this week, we'll be featuring a Full Volume segment from Killer Mike. Make sure you get back to Loud.com this week to check out the interviews we did with each emcee, as well.
