NBA 2K12 Producer/MC Contest

Postby Andrew on Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:32 am

2K Sports and Duck Down Music have once again partnered up for a contest that will give aspiring producers and MCs the chance to be featured on the NBA 2K12 soundtrack. Beginning today, producers will have the opportunity to submit a sample-free instrumental track with the winner being announced on April 14th. MCs will then have two weeks to submit a track with clean lyrics over the winning instrumental track. Full details on the contest including conditions of entry and entry instructions can be found here.

Last year's winners were Bayroot productions and MC Young Automatik, who provided the track Go Hard or Go Home. In addition to being featured on the NBA 2K11 soundtrack, Go Hard or Go Home was also used in commercials for the game which aired during the 2010 NBA Finals.

That was annoying. Great beat with a crappy mc. What a waste, imo. The vocals just didn't match the music very well.
