Duck Down NBA 2K11 Producer Contest

March 11, 2010


Duck Down Records and 2K Sports present the NBA 2K11 Producer/MC Contest.  According to Duck Down, the winning producer will have his or her creation featured on the NBA 2K11 soundtrack along with an all-expense paid trip to NYC and the chance to perform live at the 2010 CMJ conference.

The contest is divided into two segments.  The first segment focuses on producers while the second features MC’s competing over the winning instrumental.  In addition to MP3 instrumentals, producers are encouraged to submit video footage with their entries.

Good luck to all readers of Crate Kings (hopefully you give us a shoutout)!  Producers must submit an original, sample free instrumental by the March 22nd, 2010 deadline.

Visit the Duck Down contest page for complete rules and details.

“Sample free”? Booooo!!!!

Hip-Hop is sampling…shame on NBA 2K…


P.B. March 12, 2010 at 9:37 am

Sample clearance can be too expensive nowadays thats why they dont want sample beats i guess. Too much hassle and expense trying to clear all the samples.
As for sampling being hip hop……computer games aint hip hop

“The Top Ten Instrumentals will be selected by
NBA 2K Music Executives & Duck Down A&R
on March 22nd and streamed online for fans
to vote for the winning producer ”

So the one with the best instrumental might not even win… That sucks….

Whassup Crate Kings and readers, Bay Root Productions landed in the top 10 of the NBA2K11 competition. We think we’ve got a sound that’s different from all the entries in the top 10 and would like your vote to send us to the top of the ranks by April 5th. Please vote track 4 “Axiom” by Bay Root Productions. Vote and vote often. Thank you! BRP loves the Crate Kings.

You will make better business decisions than that. Just
take into account use from people they like.
Some ones already could have numerous websites.

Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or
go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
Any ideas? Thanks a lot!cheap jerseys from China

After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each
time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.

Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
Many thanks!wholesale nfl jerseys
