MC’s will have two weeks to submit one clean track using the winning producer’s instrumental track. We urge MCs to record music that DOES NOT include obvious references to basketball. Be creative with your delivery & overall theme.
All submissions must be uploaded to the SoundCloud drop box at this page by 12 p.m. EST on April 27. At 12 p.m. EST on April 29, after the top ten songs are determined by Duck Down Music and 2K Sports, they will again be streamed online via a custom SoundCloud music player at NBA 2K & Duck Down Music’s Facebook pages. Fans will again have the chance to vote once for their favorite track by “liking” the one they feel is best.
Voting ends at 12 p.m. EST on May 6 & the grand prize winners will be announced. The grand prize winners of the contest, which will consist of one producer and one MC, will have their song placed in the music soundtrack for NBA 2K12.
In addition, each winner will receive an all-expense paid trip to New York City, where they will have the special opportunity to perform the song live at Duck Down’s CMJ Showcase in October 2011. The top ten MCs & top ten producers selected from each phase will also receive premium accounts at SoundCloud, valued at $700.
