A Tribe Called Quest: Tribute Beat Contest

atcq-beatcontest

Now that we’ve finished up with our weekly Blueprint Remix Contest, I still want to keep you all occupied until we launch our next weekly contest (which probably won’t be for a while). KevinNottingham.com is teaming up with DJ Chong Wizard for a tribute mixtape to my favorite hip hop group of all time… A Tribe Called Quest. Chong came to me a few weeks ago with the idea and I immediately wanted to hop on board. But I told him, we can’t do this mixtape without the help from some of my Nottinghammers! Chong already has a good list of emcees who have already dedicated themselves to hop on the project. All we need now are beats. That’s where you come in. Hit the jump for all the details.

The scope of this contest is pretty much wide open. Send us your ATCQ tribute beats or remakes (instrumentals only please). I want to stress that this is a TRIBUTE mixtape, not a best of or greatest hits. It’s a tribute by artists that are inspired by ATCQ music, to include all interpretations of ATCQ songs.

So if you got what it takes, submit your beats! Unlike previous contests, you CAN submit more than one beat… the more the merrier. To help out, here at links to all of ATCQ sample sets floating around the net:

Upload your beats below by the deadline, August 23, 2009. Please name your mp3 with your name and the name of the Tribe song you are paying tribute to. And leave your email address in the description of your upload. Good luck!

CONTEST IS CLOSED
