The Beat Melee: The Battle Begins!

AllHipHop Staff

Ok Beat-Making family. Thanks for all of your submissions. We received enough emails in the box to bang out about 10 classic albums. Let's all be great sports and appreciate the participants in today's Beat Melee. If you didn't get your heat up, maybe next week you'll torch up the reigning champion.

But in the spirit of competition, somebody has to be chosen, somebody has to win. Narrowing the overall field to only two producers was very difficult. There were many that fit the criteria set forth to be in the top two.

This week’s winner will move on to face another challenger next week. Good luck!
