Title: Nas Offering Rappers Spot On New Album
Post by: Leggy Hendrix on July 15, 2004, 02:22:56 AM
Nas is giving one lucky rapper in the United Kingdom the chance to be featured on his upcoming double CD, Streets Disciple.

The Queensbridge rapper launched his career on another group's song when he debuted on "Live at the Barbeque," a selection from Main Source's classic 1991 album, Breaking Atoms and he is now recipricating with the unique contest.

Hopefuls can download the instrumental version of his single "Thief's Theme" and send their recorded verses to Sony. The winner will be selected by Nas himself and brought to London courtesy of Sony Music to record their verse in a recording studio.

"Thief's Theme" has already hit the airwaves. The double album is slated for an October 11th release date in the UK. The deadline for the contest is July 31 and the winner will be announced August 31.

Send demos to: Nas 'Street's Disciple' Competition, Sony Music (UK) Ltd
10 Great Marlborough St
London
W1F 7LP

Nas has a lot of songs with international artists.
Im very sure the song will only be on the UK versions and only a bonus track.
