HoodGrown Records Launches Contest For Unsigned Rappers

With the widespread success of HoodGrown Records debut release, CartelPrepare For Glory, hip-hop’s first and only digital label wants to give thanks to its supporting fans with it’s "Brix: Real Talk Remix" contest.

Up-and-coming rappers can download the FREE album, CartelPrepare For Glory, which features rapper Brix's original version of the song "Real Talk" and an accompanying instrumental, write their rhymes and submit an a cappella version to HoodGrown Records. The winner will be featured on the remix to ‘Real Talk’ and listed on the album artwork.

"This was one of the most popular tracks on the album. People haven’t heard a female with such intense lyrics in quite some time", says HoodGrown Records CEO Chris English. "With so many people supporting this project, we thought it would only be right to give someone the chance to feature their talent on the song with her"

The contest will run from August 13th – September 10th 2007, and the winner will be announced on September 24th, 2007. Contest details are available at
