300 Entertainment CEO Kevin Liles, mega producer London On Da Track and Verizon are teaming up with 97.9 The Box to find the best rapper in Houston as part of the #freestyle50 challenge. On a mission to discover the next voice of hip-hop, the national talent competition will award one aspiring artist with a single record deal with 300 Entertainment, $10,000 and more. The #freestyle50 challenge was inspired by Verizon’s 8GB for $50 prepaid offer available exclusively at Walmart. It’s the inspiration and driving force behind this awesome challenge that is going to change one talented rapper’s life! 😊
97.9 The Box is searching for a local emcee to represent Houston at the national #freestyle50 cypher in LA on August 30th. To enter, you must post a video of themselves freestyling to Tee Grizzley’s ‘No Effort’ to Instagram or Twitter with #freestyle50challenge and tag @verizon and @979TheBox. Five semi-finalists will be selected and invited to compete in an on-air battle at The Box. The winner will be flown to LA to compete with 7 other national finalists for the grand prize.
