Stagelight Monthly Music Contest II Month 11 Winners
Month 11: Hip Hop is in the books. We’ve heard hundreds of hip-hop’s up-and-coming artists. From vibrant beats to new school rap, instrumentals and some phenomenal collaborations; every emcee that stepped up to the mic brought serious talent. The Stagelight Monthly Music Contest II is ending in just a few weeks and Month 11 was huge. Thanks to all the participants and voters. Today, Open Labs is proud to announce our contest winners.
First Place Winner: Jaycee
Bringing in a diverse style of new-school hip hop, Jaycee is Buffalo, New York’s legend in the making. Whether it’s dropping his own outstanding tracks independently or coming in as a featured guest, this young artist unleashes every verse like it could be his last. His song, Outcast, had not even seen an official release before being dropped into this contest. This winning track is an attention-capturing anthem. If you like what you hear, check out “Alpha” by Jaycee now via BandCamp.
As part of the first place prize package, Jaycee will receive this powerful musical creation machine—the Lenovo Ideacentre Y900 series computer with the ThinkVision Pro2840m 28-inch 4K LCD Monitor, powered by Intel.This rig comes with a Blue Microphones Yeti Pro and a Blue Headphones Mofi. Aside from the incredible gear, he’ll also be receiving a Linkin Park Underground 15 Super Bundle with archived merchandise.
Congratulations Jaycee – keep up the hard work! Up next for you is the ultimate battle for the grand prize: a day in the studio with Linkin Park!
Second Place Winner: JSN
Second place is JSN, aka Jason Pierre from Port Saint Lucie, Florida. Second place winner “Mean To Me” combines catchy hip-hop vocals over synthesized trap drums. A cheery synth ties the track together, while JSN’s vocals and beat keep the rhythm cruising. Upbeat and addicting, we couldn’t get this song out of our heads. Nice production Jason!
As part of the second place prize package, JSN will receive the Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 300 23-inch All-In-One Computer and a Linkin Park Underground 15 Membership Bundle.
