Think you have what it takes to be the King of the Beats? If so this is the contest for you. King of the Beats is a high profile beat battle royal to find the best producer, and the whole thing is sponsored by Scion. (They sure seem to be doing a lot with music now, don't they?)
Anyway, there is a current search for submissions in Los Angeles, New York City and Atlanta, but anyone can enter. Dante Ross (Busta Rhymes, Queen Latifiah) is responsible for coming up with the contest and each regional finalist (as well as one wild card) will win $1,000 and round trip airfare/accommodations to the finale in New York City on November 4. These two will perform with Wu-Tang Clan and one of them will be named King of the Beats for a $5,000 prize.
Hop to it, your original mixes/videos are due by July 30.
