It’s All Star Weekend down in Houston this year. And it’s also the perfect time to let you know about Hoop Dream Ink, an eclectic blend of basketball and art. Decorate the walls, our yourselves with these high quality works of art depicting The ’94 Knicks, Shawn Kemp, D.Rose, MJ and the Durantula…just to name a few. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

Bout time you took down that Independence Day poster off your wall from 1996 and started classing up your space. Especially if you still live with your mom. You at least need to have some art if you haven’t moved out.

We asked them to do a little sale, so the whole store is marked down 10% for the duration of the All Star festivities!

YHTN: New Years Beat Battle Finals

December 30, 2011 |  by  |  CONTESTS, LET THE BEAT BUILD  |  77 Comments

Clearly we should do this more often. We had almost 100 submissions, which equates to me having to listen to almost 200 beats. It was great fun, and there are some super talented producers out there. Just to be transparent the key things I was looking for besides “hotness”:

  1. Did it sound real? There is a sound that feels right, like someone could actually hop on this and make something that didn’t sound like someone just exported an 8 bar Fruityloops loop. This has a lot to do with drums that actually fit the track, and synths and samples being properly tempo synced.
  2. Is it rap/singable? Basically could someone make a song from this. Are the bars formatted in a way that makes sense?
    example: intro/chorus/verse/chorus/verse/chorus/bridge/halfverse/chorus/chorus/outro
  3. Can a vocal actually sit in this somewhere?
  4. Is the mix decent? A lot of producers can’t mix. Learn to mix. People want to hear the fullness of your records.
Voting closes 12:01 AM on Monday, Jan 2nd. The winner will be posted at Noon EST on Monday.
To vote leave a comment on this post in this format:
1. Your first Place beat use the beat name (3pts)
2. Your second place beat use the beat name (2pts)
3. Your third place beat use the beat name (1pt)
