PRODUCERS - If you make tracks (or beats), then this is an opportunity for you. Eight EXPO attendees, who submit tracks, will be selected to play tracks at the showcase. Those selected and all of the other EXPO attendees in the audience will receive valuable constructive criticism and build relationships with contacts that can assist them in getting ahead in their careers.
RAPPERS - We have not forgotten about you, MCs! We understand the producer and rapper go hand in hand in Hip-Hop, so the ASCAP EXPO iStandard Producer Showcase will feature two rap performances during the show!
