(AllHIpHop News) New York rapper Mims is releasing a fully interactive mix CD titled “Open Bars,” that features Travis Porter, Gudda Gudda, Lex Luger, OB and Jovi Rockwell.
The compilation, which integrates unsigned artists and producers, received thousands of entrants over the course of the contest.
American King Music & Living Good, Digiwaxx Media and AllHipHop.com participated in the campaign.
Entrants submitted verses and beats to unfinished MIMS tracks, with a panel of seasoned music industry executives selecting the best for each song.
Five of the songs became viral videos and garnered over 5 million views online.
“My team created something that others in the industry are now following,” said MIMS. “Other major label signed artists have taken notice and are applying the same strategies used to create awareness and contests for their music. It’s a great thing to be an originator and at the forefront of embracing the independent movement.”
Below is a tracklisting of the project with credits for each artist.
