XXL has released information on a contest for all producers. Whoever has the best beat will have the XXL Freshmen spit on their work. This has never been done before and could be seen as a way for up and coming producers to get in with the XXL Freshmen for broadcast. Certainly this year will be even more gut wrenching thanks to the voting process and the new producer spot. Can't wait to see how it all goes down. If you're an up and coming producer get out there and attempt at making it.
