Duck Down & 2K Sports: NBA 2K11 Producer/MC Contest Pt. 2

NBA2K11.contest

So obviously we missed the first part but hey, better late then never. Details after the jump

At the beginning of March Duck Down and 2K Sports began a two part contest for producers and MC’s. The first portion of the contest required a producer to submit one sample free track for reps from Duck Down and 2K Sports to choose the best submissions. After receiving 500 submissions the reps paired down the field to ten finalist for a two week voting period by the public. After two weeks of voting San Antonio producer Bay Root Productions won the contest after receiving 47% of the votes from over 200,000 voters. You can grab the winning instrumental here [WINNING INSTRUMENTAL].

The MC portion of the contest starts today.

Please note the KN.com crew has nothing to do with this contest. We are only providing the information for those interested. A good portion of the information regarding the contest is after the cut, but I would read the official rules and regulations before entering.

Good luck to all and keep us posted on who is entering.
