We’ve seen hip-hop labels/artists hold remix contests, but this idea has the potential to be really cool – and possibly funny as hell.
Lyrics Born, one-half of the Solesides/Quannum duo Latyrx, is holding a karaoke contest for his single Callin’ Out from his LP Later That Day … (2003). The contest also serves to promote his new live album, Overnite Encore: Lyrics Born Live.
LB is providing the instrumental and the lyrics; you’re providing the raps. The winner gets two tickets to any Lyrics Born show, autographed CD, T-shirt, poster and, more important, their version posted on his Web site and MySpace.
Check out his karaoke contest page for more information. LB will be selecting the winner himself. Oh, how I’d love to hear those submissions.
