Eminem Announces Paul Rosenberg-Helmed Rap Contest

Eminem is helping out his longtime manager Paul Rosenberg with a little promo for Audiomack’s new rap contest dubbed “STAMPED.”

Slim Shady fired off a tweet supporting the endeavor on Tuesday (October 27), explaining, “Paul wants to hear your bars but they better be good Skull TRUST ME. Hit up @rosenberg via the @audiomack #STAMPED contest and learn more on their site.” 

According to a press release, the contest kicked off on Tuesday and will run through Friday (October 30). The grand prize is a $3,000 home studio set up compliments of IK Multimedia. The winner will also receive feedback from Rosenberg and placement on Audiomack’s official STAMPED playlist, the latter of which will go to the Top 10 finalists as well.

The winner will be selected through a combination of engagement and rankings from Rosenberg and the Audiomack staff. The Top 10 finalists will be announced on November 4, while the grand prize winner will be revealed on November 11.

Shady has been using his Twitter account to promote a handful of projects over the past week, including The Alchemist’s latest solo album The Food Villain. But one thing he hasn’t promoted is Westside Gunn’s Who Made The Sunshine album, which is distributed by Eminem’s Shady Records imprint.

On Monday (October 26), the Griselda rhymer took note of Em’s Alchemist post and reacted with several very telling emojis, making it clear he was baffled by the lack of support.

Nevertheless, the show must go on. Aspiring rappers can head here to submit an entry for the STAMPED contest.
