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 have vocals.

Submit your original Hip Hop Song by December 23rd, 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: Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, Joey Badass and Cardi B.

We’ve been so stoked on all the past Hip Hop Contests so this time we want to be the judge! Let’s create some memories and lasting stories, 1st place prize will get an interview with the A&R Team and get to explain their next steps in music. We’ve never done this before so get those creative hats on and send in your best Slaps!!

*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 one of our SKIO A&R’s, and receiving $300 dollars to spend on studio time, hiring vocalists, mix engineers, or your recording project. First prize also includes a LANDR Pro account and more!
