NEW YORK (August 2008) - Shadowville Inc. announced today that Wu-Tang Clan affiliate and rapper Killah Priest will be one of the guest judges for its second annual Make-A-Hit™ Contest.
Each year Shadowville holds a talent contest to find the most skilled artist to write, record, and create a song to one of its beats and compete for various prizes including cash and a Sony® PlayStation 3. The contest is popular for the fact there is no entry fee and is based solely on talent.
New York-based hip hop recording artist Killah Priest, affiliate of the notorious Wu-Tang Clan rap group, has partnered with the production company as a guest judge to screen contestants for talent and musical capability. Killah Priest is also currently wrapping up an album project called Beautiful Minds and feels that being a judge on the contest will compliment his album release date of September 23 on Good Hands Records.
Shadowville’s president, William Li, remarks, “Having [Killah] Priest as a judge for our contest definitely marks our company as a power player in the underground music industry. Furthermore, this contest gives aspiring artists on the internet a great opportunity to expose themselves to other artists who listen and license Shadowville beats.”
