(November 26, 2008 – New York, NY) To celebrate the release of E-40’s 14th studio album The Ball Street Journal on November 25th, LOUD.com and Warner Bros. Records are proud to present Retwittered: The Break Ya Ankles Remix Contest. LOUD.com and Warner Bros. urge all budding producers and E-40 fans to submit their best remix of the hit song “Break Ya Ankles” to LOUD.com. E-40 will personally choose one winner, who will fly to The Bay Area to meet with the legendary hip-hop star and his son Droop-E in the studio. In addition, the winner will broadcast live backstage at an E-40 show using a Nokia Kyte phone. The second place winner will receive the complete Rane Serato Scratch Live set-up, which bridges the worlds of vinyl and digital audio files and while the third place winner will receive a copy of Ableton Live 7 LE, which provides musicians an intuitive interface and professional features for recording, songwriting, remixing, and DJ’ing.
Interested participants are directed to download the a cappella of “Break Ya Ankles” here: http://www.loud.com/contest/break-ya-ankles-remix, produce their own original beat, and submit their entry to the LOUD.com community. In addition to the prizes mentioned above, LOUD.com will interview the winner, post a webisode compiling footage from their studio and show experience, and post the winning remix on their homepage, E-40.com, and MySpace.com/E40.
E-40 is a rap innovator, a business-savvy tycoon, and one of the music industry’s most consistent success stories. The man with the terrific tongue returns with his most polished product to date, the imaginatively titled The Ball Street Journal. “This traces everything from the beginning to now,” E-40 explains. “I’ve been through hard times and I’ve been through good times. It’s like a discography of my life.” The Ball Street Journal hit the streets on 11/25 on Warner Brothers / Sick Wid It Records. Retwittered: The Break Ya Ankles Remix Contest closes on December 9th and the lucky winner will be announced on December 30th. Good luck – but don’t get it twittered!
