From July 16th to August 20th, 2007, Wu-Tang fans have the chance of a lifetime.Â They can log on to LOUD.com, where they will be able to use a unique online recording studio to make and submit their own track using beats produced by The RZA himself.Â LOUD.com’s A & R staff will then judge these tracks, narrowing it down to 10 finalists. Then RZA himself will make the final pick, announcing a winner on August 27, 2007.Â The winner will get an out-of-this-world prize package, including:
* Travel and accommodations for him/herself and a guest to Hawaii.
* An opening spot for Wu Tang at the Rock the Bells festival in Oahu, Hawaii on September 1, 2007.
LOUD.com is the street’s new online community.Â The site is based around an on-line competition that offers users the ability to download beats from Hip Hop’s hottest producers for just $.99 cents and use a unique on-line recording tool to rap over the tracks.Â In a little over two months, the site has already racked up 25,000 users and almost five million unique page views.
Wu-Tang Clan’s upcoming release, The 8 Diagrams, will be out in late fall of this year.
