PRODUCERS, VOTING HAS BEGUN ON ROUND 9 AND NOW IS THE TIME TO PREPARE YOUR BEST BEATS FOR ROUND 10. WE ARE ONLY A FEW WEEKS AWAY FROM THE START OF THE FINALISTS 2!!!
Loud.com had a great week, highlighted by some really dope emcee entries. But more to the point of this Newsletter, the producer round was extremely close, and at the end of it all, O'Neil The New Element came out on top! Many congrats, playboy! Shout outs also to runner's up Brick Beatz and DJ MikeC 5000. Be sure to check back later tomorrow when we debut an exclusive video from Hot 97's DJ Bobby Trends dropping some science on why he thought O'Neil deserved the top spot. For all you emcees, keep the hot shit coming in Round 10 - IT'S YOUR LAST CHANCE TO GRAB A SPOT IN THE FINALS and compete for that $100,000 and record deal from SRC/Universal.
This week, we have some pretty dope features on the site. We dropped Part 1 of our exclusive interview with DJ Bobby Trends (not to be confused with the judging video you all want to see!), and he talked about how he was instrumental in Flex's car show and how he got his start with the Street Teams. Check that out here. We also dropped a brand new audio interview from Asher Roth that he did Saturday morning with G-Unit radio on Shade 45. He answers questions about Eminem, Halloween, the XXL cover and a grip of other topics. And if you're a fan of West Coast music, we got you covered there, too. Check out our Loud.com Favorites with indie mainstay turned Warner Bros. recording artist MURS (Making Underground Raw Shit). And lastly, one of your own, Yung Jerz, shot us a video of himself performing at a local high school football game, hyping up the crowd with an exclusive verse. Shout out to the homie from Jersey bringing his music to the masses in a new, creative way! It would serve all our Finalists well to be prepared to do the same.
Our New Music Cartel + Camp Lo Contest is set to launch tomorrow, Wednesday, November 5th. Be sure to check out the particulars here later tomorrow or get over to the NMC website and click through the sites to download the songs. In case you've been sleeping, though, find your basic details here.
For those of you who haven't entered into our exclusive Beats By Dre Contest, the clock is winding down. Be sure to get in your last tracks before November 7th. For those of you not wanting to enter, you're missing out on a chance to have your tracks heard by an Aftermath A&R and win a pair of Dr. Dre's new $350 Beats By Dre headphones. Yeah, you lose.
