Watch Papoose pick a beat from the Splice community to rap over

In celebration of 50 years of hip hop, we recently teamed up with TuneCore and legendary freestyle king Papoose for a very special Splice Discord Beat Battle.

Participants used a shared Collection of sounds to create their own beats, with $1,000, a one-year Unlimited subscription to TuneCore, an Artist Spotlight feature on TuneCore Global Socials, a one-on-one meeting with TuneCore’s Artist & Partner Relations team, and last but certainly not least, a freestyle from Papoose over their submission on the line.

Above, Papoose listened to the beats that made it to the final round live, and chose the final winnersā€”the stream starts at 6:11 in the embedded video. In the process, he shares countless insights about what he looks for in beats as a rapper.

“I loved this,” Papoose says as he wraps the session. “Shoutout to all the producers who came with it.”

TuneCoreā€”the leading independent digital music distributorā€”unveiled their Unlimited pricing plans last year, making access to 150+ digital stores more affordable than ever. Now, collaborators can easily divide royalties and credits with TuneCore Splits, and Splice users can take 20% off of a TuneCore Professional Unlimited Plan.
