As Beat*Society & DJ K.O. get closer to releasing Picture These Remixes, they’ve teamed to give up and coming producers one more chance to get on the project with the “Ladder of Success” Remix Contest.
Here’s what DJ K.O. had to say about the song and opportunity…
This track was the first song completed for my album “Picture This” way back in 2006. The idea for the song came about while sitting at a bar with Analogic (who produced the original track). We were plotting on how to make an entrance into the game. Somehow we got on the topic of ill emcees and started talking about Phonte, Masta Ace & Wordsworth. At that point in time, Tay and Ace had never been on a song before. We thought it would be really dope to hear them all together. Next thing I know I have three ill verses on the struggles of trying to climb the “ladder of success” in the game…but no hook. Picked up the horn and hit up my man K-Hill to see if he could come up with something. Next thing I know I’ve got a hook….PLUS 20 bars from yet another perspective on trying to come up in the game.
So now here is YOUR chance to come up in the game and climb the “Ladder Of Success” by remixing the track featuring verses from Phonte, Wordsworth, K-Hill & Masta Ace. The winning submission will be featured on my upcoming album.
