Hollywood, CA – In the end of every competition, there can only be one champion and after a fierce battle of the beats for Rémy Martin’s “The Producers Series: Season 3-West,” Buckmouth Beatz of Los Angeles beat out his challengers to obtain the title.
Saturday (December 10) was the scene for Hollywood’s Warwick lounge to cram several music industry insiders and experts to oversee the continuation of the successful production competition. Living legend and superproducer Timbaland headlined the event and was given a Q&A by Charlamagne Tha God about the course of his storied career as he revealed the backstory from one of his most renowned beats, Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody?”
The event was judged by Rebekah Espinosa (Sony Music – Associate Director of Marketing), Theo Brown (National Promotions Director, Atlantic Records) and Vashon “Rap” Straws (National Mix show Director, Universal Republic Records) as they ultimately favored Buckmouth Beatz’s maestro trap recordings over JD Mafia of Los Angeles and Ant Trax and Chino Hashbrown, both of San Francisco.
Also in attendance were a string of artists (Drink Champs host N.O.R.E., Soulja Boy, Sevyn Streeter, Jamal “Gravy” Woolard, producers 1500 Or Nothin’, Mike and Keys and Damon Thomas) media personalities (Revolt’s DJ Damage, Power 105.1’s DJ Rey-Mo, Real 92.3’s DJ Carisma, Letty Martinez, Nina 9 and J1, 106 KMEL’s DJ Amen and Shay Diddy and Torrei Hart), industry executives (Ghazi Shami, Carl Chery, Mar Brown, Brad Davidson, Troy Marshall, Brian Samson), and of course, HipHopDX.
