If you ever wanted to hear yourself on the GZA’s album, here’s your chance. Coinciding with the launch of his new website next week, the Genius is inviting fans to “put their MC skills to the test” in a contest called Duel of the Iron Mic. The winner will be picked by GZA himself and will appear on his future album. In order to participate, you need to rap the first verse of the classic track “Liquid Swords.” Your bars need to be recorded on video, uploaded to Vimeo, and posted on GZA’s website. There, you will find more “chambers” to the contest.

“This contest was inspired by my countless tours all over the world where I would see my fans, many of them non-English speakers, reciting every lyric of the song back to me. It’s become clear to me that my music is appealing to a whole new generation: I’ve had a bunch of people tell me that they first heard my album because their parents listened to it. That might make some artists feel old but I’m happy that my music is still relevant today. I am honored that Liquid Swords the song and album have been so widely embraced for so long. This contest is one way of giving back to my fans, of letting them share their take on the record.”

More information about the contest will be announced when the website launches.
