This is it..The end of Phase 1 of LeBron 23-23



I'm not going to be long-winded tonight. It's two hours until submissions cut off for the first phase of the LeBron 23-23 contest. All the professional and amateur producers have had a chance to mix a beat and promote.

A big thanks to everyone that submitted music. We're definitely pleased with the variety and complexity of the tracks we're hearing. We're even impressed with how some of you have creatively promoted yourselves.

It's all been noticed. It gets talked about in the hallways of Coca-Cola and on conference calls with Paul Wall.

We're pulling the top 100 late tonight. Got a conference call tomorrow afternoon with the judges.

Thanks everyone...

Great contest!!!.....you all should tighten up the coding on that flash mixer and sell it as introductory software for beginning producers...call it "Sprite Tools"....lol

The ListenLab is jacked up. About halfway through my track, the beat drops out....and it never comes back in. Which is definitely NOT what I submitted or what I mixed. So what's the deal with the player dropping tracks?

DJCHUNG said...

Thanks for the opportunity! A stellar ad campaign and a great chance for us beatmakers to heard.

You got to get the judges to check this track out. It didn't get that many votes because of the late entry, but it's worth checking out. Give it a chance just like you were given the chance to be in the position your in now.

Rick Vicious said...

dont know if i made the top (most likely not due to late entry) but check out mines Titled RVJ....

ive been having issues when submitting my track, not sure if its the computer i use or on the other end....
even when others voted for my track on my page it would sometimes play someone elses track, sometimes nuffin at all, then sometimes just the effects from the commerial, and then sometimes it would just play mines correct up until the middle of the track then it would be missing sounds and stuff....

but i dont and didnt what that problem to effect my results, so if u can, come thru and check it out titled...... RVJ.... by aktr200.
if it doesnt play right you all can even access my account and its Titled.... "NEW"
you wont be disappointed, it fits the commercial perfect..

thanks

The listen lab dropped my bass line half way through...

But that being said...I disagree with the first round of a music contest being about popularity. No disrespect to the top 10 or even the top 20, you guys put in your work and some of you made some sick joints, but for real...isn't this contest about finding skill...there are plenty of folks out there with the skill but not the network. And let's face it, there is plenty of crap on the top 100.

Am I sore about not making the top 100? hell yeah I am...i worked hard on my beat. I put in hours, it's a dope joint that goes smoothly with the commerical provided...I scored that thing hella tight I think, but I am not making it past the first round cause I didn't get enough people to vote for me..

People who also found out about the contest late are at an extreme disadvantage due to the fact that they just cannot get that many people to vote. And even less people will have a chance to listen to it.

I strongly encourage the judges to listen to all the submissions...cause there is some ish out there that deserves to be up in the next round but it never got any votes.

And I know mine didn't have a chance cause the public is up on that Crunk/Hyphy/Club beat tip...Hip hop will never get respect

Go look up someguy211 in the listen lab...and listen to hip hop anonymous...nuff said

so how can we see the top 100? What is the top 100 based on? Skill or popularity? I thought it was a talent contest not some popularity contest. Hopefully yall look at the tracks idividually and not take the easy route and pick the ppl with 10,000 votes and stuff. Most ppl didnt have the network that others did, and most of the votes from the "popular" ppl are probably thier own, sitting on thier computer voting again and again so they'll be picked. It's not fair to the talented ppl in the biz tryin to make cake and get fans. The greats in the game didnt get thier break because someone voted for them. Music is about skill and passion. Whoever has the passion to devote hours to your mixer, should have the chance to be picked. So in closing I hope, along with others, that the contest is about skill and not about being popular.

I wanna thank LeBron, Sprite, Paul Wall, Perion, and the rest of the crew for giving the unheard a voice, and us crabs at the bottom of the barrel a chance to shine! I've listened to several tracks in the Listen Lab and I'm impressed with the talent that's bubbling up and ready to overflow! This was a great opportunity to not only display talent, but to also network with other producers across the globe, and I've made a few friends along the way! So let me say this to my fellow producers, let's stay in touch and continue to support one another. Remember, a win for one is a win for all! Holla at your man!

Thanks for the opportunity and when "Mixtape Inc. The Movie" comes to DVD in the states this summer. e-mail me and I'll send you a copy. I have 4 tracks in the score. This was s great contest to get hopefully noticed. I know some had an advantage over others with the votes and all. I had 4 music sites and a podcast where people could vote. I hope I made the top 100, but if not, it was a good experience and I hope Sprite will do something like this again. Maybe with a different way of getting Sprite to listen and a different way to get votes. Thanks again for the opportunity.

Weren't they supposed to publish the top 100 yesterday?

KEPPEN said...

I was wondering the same thing - who made the top 100?

Anonymous said...

I'm really dissappointed. I submitted my track on the last day because every time I saved it, your site messed it up and I had to re sequence it. Anyway I finally got it up there and I just listened to it. Its messed up- the beat is missing throught most of the track. Could I have another chance to resubmit it? The track is bangin and fits the ad so perfect!
