*Day 1’s entries are in. Winners will be announced on Saturday.*
For the next two weeks, each Monday and each Wednesday, KATC will be giving away a piece of true Sneaker/Hip-Hop history, an official Vinyl copy of the Nike commissioned Air Force 1 track “Better Than I’ve Ever Been/Classic” featuring Kanye West, Nas, Rakim, and KRS-One, produced by Rick Rubin/DJ Premier. These limited edition pieces of Vinyl are not officially available for sale and were only given out to select DJs and tastemakers, and of course, 4 lucky KATC readers.
For all of the details of this contest, continue reading.
We have 4 pieces of Vinyl on hand. We will be contesting off one piece per day, this Monday/Wed and next Monday/Wed. Each contest day, we will post a different set of contest questions.
