The Top 100



We pulled the list of the Top 100 vote getters for the LeBron 23-23 contest. We had a call with the 5 judges yesterday (3 from Atlantic Records, 1 from our ad agency, and Paul Wall's manager - T. Farris). They are reviewing the mixes now and are going to have their favorites to me by Saturday.

I'll do the tabulations then get the top 23 over to LeBron, Paul Wall, and Al Fatz to make their decisions on the final 3.

I'll post the Top 100 list later tonight...I gotta go home now...mad tired.

- - - - - - -

On another tip, I've been reading a lot of the comments about getting mixes in late, reviewing everybody, etc. So I thought I'd respond with a few points from our POV.

1. This contest is about hustle - making a hit theme song for LeBron James. I know a lot of people out there with talent but weren't willing to put in the work necessary to promote themselves. Everyone has heard of selling mixtapes out of the trunk of your car. That's what this contest is. If you can't get people to vote for you, you probably can't get a hit song on the radio.


I've got a stack of CDs on my desk from producers, DJs, even mainstream artists looking to cash in - without putting any work in first....not a good look.

For the people that did get out and promote hard, you probably made the top 100.


2. There are legitimately some people that just heard about the promo late...I feel you. It's not always fair, but we have deadlines to get the music put into the TV commercial and ship it to TNT to air during NBA All-Star 2007. For ya'll, we have some other opportunities to get your beats out. Ones that we can't give to the Top 100 for legal reasons. On the low - we've been in negotiations for a TV show with a Entertainment Television network that starts with a "B".


3. Lastly, we can't listen to every submitted track. I'm too busy, Atlantic Records is too busy, LeBron James is wayyyy to busy trying to win a championship.

Like I said, I'll post the Top 100 list later tonight. Till then, enjoy the site. Enter codes to win stuff like ringtones, signed LBJ jerseys, etc...

Yo thanks for letting us know whats up with the top 100. I think we all realize how busy you must be, so its all good.

Also I am very interested in getting my original beats (I have over 150 songs) on T.V. and movies. So anyone reading this that can help me, holla back :).

Anyways, thanks for the exposure and hopefully I will be somewhere in that top 100, 23, and atleast the top 3. But if I don't make it for some reason, I will definitely be around for along time so keep an eye out for me folks.

Anyone that wants to contact me in the future, go to my myspace http://www.myspace.com/keppen2007 and add me. Holla

Thanks for the update. I can imagine there is a lot of work going into something like this. If I'm not in the top 100, then I look forward to some other opportunities.

Keppen I don't know of a sure fire way to get your music into TV and film. If I had that answer I wouldn't have been in this contest. I'd already be doing the Sprite ad.

You gotta always be on the hustle lookin for opportunities. I've worked hard for any opportunity I've had, and I've been lucky enough to be approached by just hustling my music in the right place at the right time. If you have a lot of variety and quality then there's more opportunity, I do everything from jazz to funk, to rock, to hip hop.

You also gotta know where to market your sound. I don't do crunk beats normally, so I don't focus in places that may want that.

Anyway..I'm way off topic..thanks again to everyone involved, cant't wait to see what's next...

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!
