Hi-Tek Judges Scion Unsigned Emcee Competition
The contest, which begins April 9, offers independent rappers an opportunity to be seen and heard through a marketing push.
Contestants can submit demos to be judged by the Hi-Tek as well as Def Jam/Rocafella Records vice president A&R Lenny S. and Ryan Ford, executive editor of The Source magazine.
The emcee with the best flow will win a $75,000 marketing deal which includes a song produced by Hi-Tek, a fully produced music video and other prizes.
This year marks the first time Scion has enlisted a producer to make a song for the winner of the annual competition.
Contestants have until May 21 to submit demos. A winner will be announced July 30.
