blame it on JES7 March 17, 2012

Attention all up-and-coming producers! The dopehouse has linked up with the good folks at Ill Adrenaline Records for a nice little contest to remix a cut off Rashad & Confidence’s one-two punch, back to the basics album, The Element of Surprise. A personal favorite, the album gets steady burn on the iPod and proves that the one producer, one MC formula still works wonders. Check the info and grab the a cappella below, then hit the jump for info on the Prize package. UPDATE: Download link for original added; new a capella properly tagged at 90 BPM coming soon too.

2 Dope Boyz and Ill Adrenaline are pleased to present the official Rashad & Confidence remix contest! Since the duo’s critically acclaimed “The Element of Surprise” album dropped at the end of November 2011 (vinyl version scheduled to drop in April), fans worldwide have embraced the movement and the sounds these two aspiring artists have contributed to the culture. Now we’ve given producers an opportunity to remix one of the album’s best tracks, “The City.” This urban tale is filled with knowledge, wit and intellect on what it’s like growing up in the concrete jungle. This is a serious song and we expect nothing but high caliber boom bap production in order to win. Take your time with this one because the prize package is tough and you’re given a chance to get immediate exposure with your winning entry. Best of luck to all contestants!
