The Soundtrack Beat Battle launched in January 2010 and was created by a local singer, songwriter, producer and business owner by the name of Coko Korinne. “I was tired of people telling me that there was no way for an Urban artist to get discovered in Nashville! Everyone suggested that you move to a bigger city. But I knew that we had just as much talent as any other place—someone just needed to bring the record labels to Nashville and let them witness for themselves. So I decided to step up to the plate”, says Coko.
This event has brought in managers, established artists, A&R, music supervisors and even TV producers from BET. But for the Grand Finale show, Coko decided to bring in some of Hip Hop’s most respected producers. Billboard’s Top 10 Producer of the Decade- Bryan Michael Cox will be judging the event, along with Drake’s #1 Producer-Boi 1 Da and Keyshia Cole’s Producer Street Symphony. “The caliber of judges that we will have at the finale is going to be huge for the city of Nashville. Someone is going home with a business card that could change their life”, explains Coko.
