Er, it’s Don Jazzy again. The year 2011 has seen the brilliant beat sign a record deal, with D’Banj with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music brand, and he has already swung into the thick of things. A few days ago, he earned his first major production credit on the track ‘Lift Off’ which will appear on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ joint album. Word has it that Beyonce was also featured on the track.
However, Don Baba J as he is fondly called still has his eyes on his roots back in Nigeria. From his New York base, he spent a few minutes creating a hip hop beat, and in his usual generosity, he decided to put the beat, titled ‘Enigma’, up for free download to all upcoming rappers/artistes and fans alike.
So, If you feel you can do justice this thumping beat, or you know someone who can, download it below and let’s get rolling! As soon as you’re done recording on the free beat, email it to [email protected] Be sure to attach the email in mp3 format for quick and easy screening.
The NotJustOk Team and Don Jazzy will pick out the top five (5) entries and present them to the public, who will then cast their votes in an open poll. The winner of the competition gets $2,000 from Don Jazzy! In addition, Don Jazzy tweeted: “If your version is too badt, who knows? I can put it on D’Banj’s album. IDJA”.
It’s a simple freestyle/mixtape beat for rapheads. We expect y’all to get on it with ease!
