A (2)Dope Fresh Daily Remix Contest

blame it on Illy January 25, 2010

If you are a (2)dope producer that’s looking to be heard, here is your chance. The dopehouse is teaming up with Fresh Daily for an exclusive Remix Contest for a song off his latest album, The Gorgeous Killer In Crimes of Passion. In the link below you will find the a capella as well as the original song (produced by Frequency). Starting today, you will have 2 weeks to complete and submit your version to [email protected]. Once all submissions are in, myself, Mek, Fresh and Sucio Smash (High Water Music) will pick a winner. Giving them the oppurtunity to record an original track with Fresh Daily and get a digital single deal through High Water Music (plus a few more goodies). So good luck, and we look forward to hearing what y’all got!!

  • matt

    so what’s up with this contest?

  • Hmm…

    ???if this is any indication of how the label handles business…

  • Any News Yet ?

  • bazooka

    oh come on, how hard is it to keep us updated about the progress? fair enough if people are very busy, but how long has it been,three weeks now?

  • Mr.X

    We all Feel the same…I submitted as well..

  • GF911

    At least they could explain the situation. Damn.


    I won???

  • ????

    is this really that hard to judge?

  • mandingo

    WOW … it’s been almost a month since the deadline

  • anonymousME

    for reals. was this just some kind of scam

  • Contest?

    I think maybe if someone didn’t focus on tweeting so much maybe we would have a winner? We could atleast be informed about the reason behind the delay.. It really doesn’t take a whole month to decide. Was this really a contest?

  • stupidhaed

    I guess he didn’t like any of them hahaha

  • abc

    And even that he could let us know about lol

  • Ahem.

    I was looking forward to a chance at the little mini digital-only single deal. But then I realized: A) Fresh Daily is really not all that fresh (doper than say, a coochie mane, but certainly not even remotely on par with say, a homeboy sandman). B) Seeing how long its taking just to judge this damn contest, imagine you actually win. How prolonged and unprofessional do you think that experience would be? All that headache just to have the opportunity to give a beat to Fresh Daily. No thanks.

  • Ahem.

    ed. to give a free beat to Fresh Daily.

  • Valhalla

    idk I’d still give him my beat, exposure is exposure. It is tough that the process is so drawn out though.

  • Im sure theres a good reason why this is taking so long, however, it is still kinda frustrating. He did show lots of interest in the beginning, keeping us updated and giving props. I dont think he would quit the competition and theres probably a reason for this being so quiet atm. There are worse competitions out there, a lot of talent has been shown in this one and people deserve an answer after waiting for a month. We’ll see what happens.

  • dj impatient

    Remind me to never sign up for a fresh daily competition again. The way they’re handling this is completely unprofessional.

  • @FreshDotDaily Video Gamin’ contest is a wrap! Check @2DopeBoyz for details soon

    via highwatermusic twitter.

    good luck all .. looks like the wait is over.. acording to twitter.

  • MR.X

    Ive Officially Lost all Hope in the Contest…SMH @2dopeBOYZ
