2008 is looking to be a great year full of promise and opportunity. To kick things off we’re happy to announce that legendary producer Ski Beatz has agreed to judge the January Crate Kings Beat Battle. The same producer responsible for classic hits from Original Flavor, Jay Z’s, Camp Lo, and most recently Pittsburgh Slim will select the winners from our uniquely skilled pool of producers… make sure that your entry is one of them!
1. You must not use any sounds except from the sample, except drums and a bass.
2. The beat must be in the 80 – 110 bpm range.
