Round 10 Producer Winner - M16

New York, NY (December 3, 2008) -, what it is!!! After a long and tough preliminary competition, we’ve finally begun the second season of The Finalists! For those not familiar, this year, one emcee will win $100,000 and a record deal and one producer will win $15,000 and a three-song production deal from SRC Records & Universal Motown.

Our Finalists in Season 2 come from all over the country, and carry with them varying levels of acclaim. To see them in person and get a feel for how they've been moving up to this point, get over to The Official Finalists Season 2 Kyte Channel and see who’s doing what! Unfortunately, as often happens in this business, we've had to adjust to a few last-minute situations, and are working to solidify the two final spots. We will announce a complete list of candidates on Thursday. For now, however, here are the winners from the first eight rounds:

   1. Jouce The Artists – Palmdale, California
   2. Yung Jerz – Wayne, New Jersey
   3. Obae – Lakewood, Colorado

And not to be forgotten, we would like to congratulate our Round 10 Winner M16thabeatking! His Atlanta bounce had heads in the building nodding and is a welcome addition to this new part of our contest. We will be announcing the full list of our producer Finalists on Thursday, as well! Their battle will begin in January 2009 and will include three specific challenges sure to test their skills and creative mind. For anyone who likes dope beats, THIS IS NOT TO BE MISSED!!
