Producers Arena: Alex Medina vs. Black Knight vs. Tyshane
A couple of weeks ago Tyshane (production credits include: Lecrae’s “Violence” and Andy Mineo’s “Young”) issued a friendly challenge to Alex Medina (production credits include: Lecrae, Trip Lee, Tedashii, shai linne, Sho Baraka, The Ambassador, Andy Mineo, and on and on on) on who could produce a better beat. Alex, accepted and asked me to judge the beat. Then, Black Knight (winner of the Rapzilla Tedashii “Riot” remix contest and production credits include: Json, KB, and Andy Mineo) wanted to join the battle. So I layed down a couple of ground rules and created the Producers Arena.
1. I got to choose the sample (Keith Mansfield “Summer’s Coming“) and they had to create a beat using the sample I had chosen.
2. They couldn’t put any name tags on the beat, so it can be judged on the beat solely.
3. They couldn’t tell their followers which beat to vote for.
– Alex Medina: Beat #2
– Black Knight: Beat #3
– Tyshane: Beat #1
– Andy Mineo: #3
– Propaganda: #1
– Tee Wyla: #1
– Derek Minor: #1
– YOU (vote below): #3
