  • The song or multitrack you will sample on Tracklib needs to play an important part in your submission's production. This means, for example, that you can not just sample one snare-hit from a multitrack.

How much depends on your submission's total sampled time and the category of the recording sampled.

About Lobby Boyz (Jim Jones & Maino)

This recent teaser video introduced Jim Jones and Maino as Lobby Boyz. Busy in a hazy studio late at night, as part of a session to create seven tracks within six days. Backed by a song over an “I Got 5 On It” flip as their first outing.

Harlem-bred rapper Jim Jones is one of the founding members of The Diplomats (a.k.a. Dipset) alongside childhood friends Cam'ron and Freekey Zekey, who were later joined by Juelz Santana. He's also the co-CEO of Diplomat Records and a video director under his pseudonym of CAPO. After his debut album On My Way to Church in 2004 and Dipset's Diplomatic Immunity (1 and 2) on Koch Records, Jim Jones earned himself an executive A&R position at the Koch-founded eOne Music. So who knows where this placement gets your music heard... His own recent releases include The Fraud Department together with Brooklyn-based producer Harry Fraud, and the Heatmakerz-produced El Capo album featuring Fat JoeRick RossCam'ronDave EastCurren$y, among others.

Bedford-Stuyvesant rapper Maino (and Kitchen Talk podcast founder and co-host) set up his own Hustle Hard imprint back in 2003. Atlantic Records caught wind of the label in 2007 after a series of mixtapes, guest appearances, and a Universal deal that fell through. The Just Blaze-produced "All the Above" featuring T-Pain soon followed, which earned him his first Billboard Hot 100 position and platinum-selling single. Other collaborations include tracks with Swizz Beatz (most notably the “Million Bucks” single on his If Tomorrow Comes... debut album), T.I.JadakissRoscoe Dash, and a GTA IV soundtrack placement for "Getaway Driver." With new this year: the Lobby Boyz release—possibly featuring a beat by you.
