Hit the picture to check out what Locksmith has done for us.
Funk Volume, the record label consisting of Hopsin, Dizzy Wright, SwizZz, Jarren Benton, and DJ Hoppa have just hit the green light on their “Don’t Funk Up Our Beats 7” contest, where artists can purchase a beat, and lay down a 2 minute or less track to be voted on, and judged. First place wins $2500, a feature on HipHopDX.com, and the opening slot on 2-4 dates on the upcoming “Funk Volume 2015 Tour”.
Locksmith has jumped in on this for promotional reasons, thus this is not an entry in the contest. However, this doesn’t take anything away from the pure talent that Lock is laying down on this beat. Not many artists can successfully keep the listeners attention without any form of a hook or a chorus, espeically with the lyrical content and confidence that Lock is known for. (See “10KONDRMS” for more on this).
Voting has already begun for Funk Volume’s “Don’t Funk Up Our Beats 7″, and runs until August 9th 2015. Lock is a talented emcee to say the least, but would he have gotten your vote? If you want to check out some of the entries, or even submit one yourself, take a trip over to Funk Volume’s Facebook Page, or their official FAQ page, and start cookin’.
