VH1 & ?uestlove Search The Net For Aspiring Producers

 VH1 & The Roots' Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson have joined forces for an online competition titled "The Score," which will seek out an aspiring producer to craft the official soundtrack for this year's "VH1 Hip Hop Honors."

Contestants can post sixty second beats at thescore.vh1.com and three finalists will be selected by a panel of music industry judges. Viewers will then decide the winner via online voting.

The winner will be mentored by ?uestlove during a session where the winning score will be professionally produced. The winner will also receive show credit and will be flown to New York for the taping of the "VH1 The Hip Hop Honors" program in October.

Now in its fourth year, "VH1 Hip Hop Honors" continues to pay homage to icons of the hip-hop culture through performances from today's talent. Past honorees have included Big Daddy Kane, The Notorious B.I.G., The movie Boyz N Da Hood, LL COOL J, Eazy-E and MC Lyte, to name a few.

This year's "VH1 Hip Hop Honors" will be hosted by comedian Tracy Morgan and will pay tribute to Snoop Dogg, Whodini , Missy Elliott, Wild Style's 25th Anniversary and producers Teddy Riley and Andre Harrell.

"VH1 Hip Hop Honors" will air on October 8 at 10 p.m.
