“Back in September, on the same day that we linked up with Brenda, we also met a couple traveling musicians with matching hats named Neil and Tim. They were on a road trip/tour across the country to spread their music and were cool enough to play us a cover of one of their favorite pop songs ‘Halo’.
In case you don’t know, I’m producing a full ‘Live from the Streets’ hip hop album. I’m really excited because most of the guest MC’s that we’ve had on the show so far will be rapping on the album .
Right now what I want to do is give everybody a chance to be on the album alongside some of the most important names in underground hip hop and music in general. Starting now, we’re having a contest, and all you have to do to enter is record a song over the “Halo” beat from this episode and send it to us at email@example.com.
Here’s what you have to do, go to greenhiphop.com…scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and click on the free download link for ‘Halo’. Then, record your best song over the beat, it can be written, freestyle or whatever you want. You can do a rap, sing r&b or reggae, or even play instruments over it, as long as you add a piece of yourself to the beat, we will accept the entry… After you record, send the mp3 or video link to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Halo”. We will be accepting submissions up until March 21′st 2012. After that, Sam and I are going to listen to each and every submission and then announce the announce the winners on the 30th of April. We will pick one winner to be featured on the official “Live from the Streets” album as well as 5 runners up who will receive a t shirt and a copy of the LFTS album.
Good luck,” -Mr. Green
