The Final 3



LeBron, Paul Wall and Al Fatz all got their selections to me by last Wednesday night around 11:30. After I got back from seeing my Hawks whomp Golden State, we went through the selections and, surprisingly, they all pretty much agreed on the same tracks. So, we do know who made it to the top 3 and will get into the TV spots.

Now - here's a personal apology from Admin. I may not have been as clear as I should have been. We're announcing the Final 3 spots in Las Vegas during All-Star weekend at the LeBron 23-23 party at Light in the Bellagio. At 11:23, (hence the name 23-23), LeBron will be there to personally premeire the spots on broadcast for the first time. Then, we kick off voting that same night and a public vote will determine who gets to go into the studio.

The party is going to be serious. I've personally been to the last 2 All-Star weekends (Houston & Denver) and am more excited about Las Vegas than any of the past ones. When NBA All-Star was in Atlanta, I wasn't working for Coke at the time, so I didn't get to go for free. So, if any of ya'll are going to All-Star in Vegas, holla at me.

My bad for not being more clear on revealing the top 3.

On another note, we still are going to have more opportunities for folks not in the top 3. Legally, we have to wait until you are clear of being voted upon/judged to use your tracks.

Rome_C said...

Admin, I represent well known producers in NYC and Down South in Charlotte....
I was wondering if I could send you a press kit of all the artists we have worked with and the traks we have placed. currently one of our artists is in talks with Jay-Z, but we are more interested in providing tracks for the king himself. Ive heard he has been dabbing in music and we have some heat. If possible contact me direct at roman@rockincleveland.com
i can shoot you a few mp3s along with our track record.
Thanks for your time,
Rome_C

I won't name any names but I'm definitely rooting for a couple people to be in the top 3.

On another note, has anyone seen any of the vignettes on BET for NBA Freeflow yet?

This is ya boy ThaProphet. I am finally getting a chance to post to the blog again. I try to check the blog on a semi-regular basis, but work and other stuff has been keeping me real busy for the past couple of weeks.

Let me start of by saying congrats to those 14 beats and beatmakers that got their mix into the BET Show. That is some serious stuff right there. Do ya thing.

Next, good luck to the Top 23 as we have to wait a lil longer to see what's up with the Top 3. There are some very talented cats in that group and may the best come out of this for all of you. Whether you win this contest or not and whatever else may come out of this contest, stay on your grind and never give up. Almost all the big names in music have had few doors closed in their face before they blew the doors down.

As the person on here giving their opinion on things and some people take it as hate, it is not that serious. Whether it be hate or construtive criticism, take it as waht it is and keep it moving. If you see it as hate, use it as motivation to prove people wrong. If you see it as constructive criticism, use it to your advantage and make the changes you feel are necessary to make the end result better. It is impossible to please everyone all the time. That is just a part of life. No need getting worked up over it or letting it get to you like that. But thanks to that person for stating their opinion and supplying some of us with even more fuel to prove people wrong.

I do like the fact that there is a group of people that have joined forces and used this competition as the perfect breedign ground to network and collab. That is what it is all about. I have a serious interest in joining the group and learning what I can from you all. For me, this is all a bit unreal. I just seriously got into djing and music production last year. I am still doing a lot of research and playing with a lot of things to see what is best going to fit me. I am still buying equipment and trying to find my lane in all this. So, to be in the Top 23 with some guys who have been doing this for years, is great. I am hoping to join the myspace group and soak up as much knowledge as I can frmo any and all of you. I actually just created myspace pages when the contest started, after I enetered. This weekend, I plan on getting them up and going completely. I work on computers all day and don't really feel like getting on mine when I get home, but I have to make an exception this weekend. I also don't want anyone to think that because I have not been into this aspect of music for a long time that my desire is not there. My desire to make music and create is just as big as anyone else that has sincere aspirations of making serious moves in the music world. I am just getting a later start than some of you. So, be on the lookout for me on myspace starting on Monday. I figure I can get my pages looking decent by the end of the weekend. As soon as I get my pages up and somewhat put together, I plan on joining the HustlinandFlowin myspace group, if they will have a rookie like me.

Keep doing ya thing fellas and I hope to see some of you make it big in the industry...The talent is there and the determination is there too...

What's good! I just wanted to drop a few words of motivation and send a shout out to all the producers staying on their grind, making it happen and staying focused and driven for the task at hand! Opportunity is knocking, so we gotta be ready to seize the moment! Hard work does pay off, but faith without works is dead!

Big Up's to all the producers who've joined forces in the group Hustlin and Flowin! And from the response we've had, I've started a brother group for lyricists, rappers, singers, songwriters and true emcees called THE POWERHOUSE "THE HOUSE OF RHYMES" created to offer support for fellow artists and to provide a voice for the unknown lyricists and songwriters the world over!

We thought it would be a great idea to link the world of production with the voices that sing and flow the songs! Think about it, a producer with a great track + an artist with the right pipes or a tight flow = A HIT!!! So it was almost a no brainer to kick this off! So anyone interested, or if you know someone who would be, get at us at:

Glad to see ya here Prophet. I added both sites when you get around to em. Also joined your group Rip.

Nice to see the networking going on. Thought I'd let you know my boy Tazz dropped a new track about his struggles..with of course a hard gansta beat by me...Tazz is definitely a genius at work. It's titled "Me Blowed" and you can hear it here...

http://www.myspace.com/do1productions

Or make it easy and click on my name..Glad to see everyone is still on their grind.

KEPPEN said...

Like Rip One said, we now have 2 groups. Not everyone has to join both obviously, but it would be reccomended due to the fact that we are trying to network producers, songwriters, rappers and singers.

Rip One and I have alot planned, and try to talk daily. I guess you could say we kind of took on the leadership roles, just due to the fact we are so much on the same page. And from an idea comes more ideas, and from there come goals. I personally will do anything, that is not illegal or immoral of course, to make it in this game! What some might see as a lot of work, I see as the only road to where I am trying to get to. And my main goal is not make it, but also bring as many with me as I can. So noobs and pros alike, please join the groups we have made, and stay in contact with yuor fellow hustlas!

ThaProphet - I am sending you a freind invite right now, then I will invite you to the 2 groups ok? Anyways holla back folks! Keppen

Ohh Admin. Vegas, huh? Now when you hit the Black Jack table or play Slots, don't forget to share the wealth. You can give to the Hustlin and Flowin group as well as the House of Ryhmes group. See? Some good has come from this blog. Good friends networkin', and Admin sharing the winnings from hittin it big at the gamblin tables. Okay, wishful thinkin'. Enjoy your time while there and take lots of pictures and post'em up.

Do1 said...

I figured this might be a good place to ask this question. Has anyone seen the new ad featuring the Olympic NBA team? Does anyone know the name of the track and the artist? I can't seem to find any info online.

Anonymous said...

do1...are you talking about the nike commercial with lebron, kobe, paul pierce, rasheed wallace, amarie stoudamire, tony parker, chris paul and a few other guys? i think that is just a nike commercial. kind of a response to the adidas ads with duncan, mcgrady, billups, garnett and areanas saying it takes 5. if this is the commercial you are talking about just blaze did that beat and juelez santana laid teh verse. just blaze even has the making of that beat on his myspace page. he actually had parts of an orchstrea play the violins and horns for that track. he also has some of the making of the why you hate the game track on there too...

ThaProphet Thanks for pointing me to the video clip. Very impressive. I only have one guy to do 16 bar strings for me. I can only imagine being able to have the 20 or so he had for that. Must be an incredible feeling to have your music done on that type of scale. I can only hope and dream...

I feel you on the bass too. Though I think I always gravitate towards a very funky bass. Hell..guess I gotta say I like it all, I go a little bass crazy and hihat crazy too..lol

Perion way to go on joinin the group.

And I'll definitely be listening for the 14 tracks..I'll see if I can set up the DVR today to record it. Good job guys/girls..
