Producer 9th Wonder, president of Cinematic Music Group (Nipsey Hussle, Big K.R.I.T.) Jonny Shipes and Arthur Pitt of Rostrum Records (Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller) will be listening to freestyles submitted through “Ready or Not,” one of the many functions on the XXL App for iPod, iPhone and iPad users throughout the month of June.
The “Ready or Not” function on the XXL App is a user-based voice recorder that allows up-and-coming talent to record a freestyle into their own device, then upload their personal 30-second freestyle to XXLMag.com.
9th, Shipes, and Pitt will rate and blog about freestyles they hear through the app throughout the month on XXLMag.com, so be sure to send in your best efforts. In addition, they will also be taking a look at aspiring artists in our new section, The Break, which launched last month.
Beyond “Ready or Not,” the multi-function app offers XXLMag.com’s hip-hop news, feature stories, lifestyle content, a special rap trivia game, GPS locator to locate your friends and a special Twitter function.
Fans can download the XXL App for free from the Apple Store now here. —XXL Staff
