These last 2 weeks have made me proud to be apart of this community, from having the Twitter account banned, then seeing kind words of support from familiar faces, and increased website traffic, I am humbled. To top it off this very first Show and Prove received 13 submissions, the quality of which surpassed all my expectations, but this only made the selection process harder. In fact it’s the hardest decision I’ve made for this blog, so I even enlisted Aidan D’Aoust of Complex Canada and behind the scenes, lowkey Audio Engineer-Producer Genius, Dominic Dot Okune for help.
Before I get going, I want to say thank you for DBLCRSS for this incredible beat., and thank you to all 13 artists who entered, yall got some heat, and I will remember every single one of you, and the work you put in. A full playlist of all entries can be listened to HERE, or at the bottom of this page
I painstakingly narrowed it down to the top 3 entries 5HEV, LEO. and OSIYM. 5HEV and LEO. both RIPPED the track apart, I mean straight disrespected it, but a conclusion couldn’t be made as to who went harder. OSIYM on the other hand they went at it totally different from other entries. The duo made this beat into a fully realized song, adding a sweet hook and great supporting verses, this shit is a HIT. Because of this is OSIYM are the Winners of the 1st 6Track Show and Prove.
Show and Prove 1 Winner: OSIYM – Janet Jackson (Prod. DBLCRSS)
Now a winner has been picked, but 5HEV and LEO.’s respective tracks as runner ups are essential listening, I can’t stress how great these are enough.
IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THESE RESULTS, @ ME ON TWITTER , TELL ME WHY, AND COME HARDER NEXT TIME.
SHOW AND PROVE 2 COMING SOON
