With that said…

As most of you have seen by now, Flyspitta aka Curren$y, took home the Round 9 victory this time through, and Havoc of Mobb Deep gives the cosign (watch the video here). With his song “Top of The Money” ringing in everyone’s ears, the Fly Society representer fended off some great tracks by D-Most and GMartel08, aka Germaine Martel. Big ups to both of ya’ll for lacing some serious joints!
As we build the anticipation for the beginning of the finals, we have some special things planned, and one of them is to drop a new Loud.com Favorites every day. On Tuesday, we posted a Full Volume and Interview segment with Serius Jones and heard him get into some dope rhymes, and today we have another special one planned. To celebrate the end of the contest and to catch everyone up on the second half winners, we’ll also be doing another Winner’s Week featuring audio interviews with cats like Angel Da Kid, Anonymous Twist, Homeboy Sandman, and the rest that haven’t yet been heard from, so be on the look for that next week!
For audio heads, our 12” of The Week, “Pop Champagne, Barack Campaign" (Remix), is set to debut later tomorrow. We'll also be posting the remaining portions of our interview with DJ Bobby Trends from Hot 97. Watch the second and third parts here. If that's not enough, up your reading game with some editorials by the homie Adam Michael. That A&R piece is surprising, to say the least.
Lastly, we are very close to choosing a winner for the Beats By Dre mini-contest, so all of you that entered, fear not; the announcement will be coming soon! For those of you that didn’t to enter, you missed 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. Loud.com is always sponsoring mini-contests, so be sure to continually check the homepage to see how you can enter. This one was particularly dope!.
