SKIO’s A&R team is excited to hear your version of an original Hip Hop banger! For this contest, we’re listening for Hip Hop instrumentals with hard-hitting 808’s, a solid beat and groove, and whether a rapper can spit some hot bars on it! Your track should not have vocals.

Submit your original Hip Hop instrumental by October 10th, for a chance to win some dope prizes! Whether the track is an old song that’s already done or a fresh new project, it doesn’t matter. Just give it your all!

Some artists you can reference are: Metro Boomin, Murda Beatz, Kenny Beats, and Mustard.

Every single submission will be heard by our team of A&R’s, so give it your all because winners will be selected by our guest judge, talented rapper / songwriter ARIA!

*Be sure your submission is originally created by you, and is not a remixed version of an existing track! *

The grand prize winner has a chance to make moves for their career, winning a 1-on-1 mentor call with ARIA, and receiving $150 dollars to spend on studio time, hiring vocalists, mix engineers, or your recording project. First prize also includes a LANDR Pro account and more!
