2Dopeboyz, Marco Polo & The Drum Broker’s ‘Pad Thai Vol. 2 Beat Contest’

blame it on JES7 July 20, 2015

Attention all beat makers, old and young! Marco Polo is holding a contest and wants to see your best created beat, submitted by August 16th. To reiterate: Just as we did back in January, we’ve linked with our homie Marco Polo and Alkota of The Drum Broker to give one lucky up-and-coming producer a chance to win the following:


1. All entries must own Pad Thai Vol. 2. Your order number grants you entry. (You receive the order # when you buy it). Please do not enter if you don’t own Pad Thai Vol. 2. Don’t own it? No problem, head over to or and cop it!

2. Make a beat using any sounds from Pad Thai Vol 2. Of course you can use your own loops, samples, whatever you want just make sure something from Pad Thai Vol. 2 is used to construct the beat. I’d prefer it to be obvious but even one sound is fine.

3. Email your best beat (320 mp3 or Soundcloud link is fine) to padthaibeats[at]gmail[dot]com (only 1 beat please.) *VERY IMPORTANT* Please make sure you include your Pad Thai Vol. 2 order # and all your social media/contact info with your beat submission. The deadline for submissions is Sunday August 16th, 2015. I will post the winner (the beat I think is the best) on Friday, August 21st, 2015.

Now for the good stuff…

The winner receives the following:

1. Any drums & bass sounds from 2 of my productions not included in Pad Thai Vol. 2. Just tell me the name of the songs and the drums & bass sounds are yours.

2. I will personally email/submit the winning beat to any rapper you want and let them know you got a banger (within reason of course…y’all know who I work with so please don’t ask for Jay Z or Nas or Kendrick hahaha.) KIC Beats won my first contest and had the opportunity to personally submit beats directly to Pharoahe Monch. Not too shabby huh?!!!

3. 1 free digital download of any of my albums. (e.g. Port Authority, Port Authority 2, Newport Authority 2, Double Barrel…)

4. 30 minutes with me in the studio via Skype, phone or messenger (not in person, sorry Mischa don’t like guests). You can play me beats and get feedback or ask any production questions you want while I smoke Newports. If you make hot shit I’m happy to help you get your beats to some MC’s. Rappers always need beats.

5. The winning beat will be posted on and on all my social media pages as well via The Drum Broker. 👍

6. $24.99 credit courtesy of the

Sound good?
