Held each year by energy drink giants Red Bull, the Big Tune Contest finds up-and-coming producers from across the nation vying for the grand prize: a chance to record with the artist of their choice. 2010’s victor, 14KT, selected Bun B to spit over his winning production—newly-released promo single The Life is the result. Here, the up-and-coming beatsmith’s swirling synths set the stage for a characteristically booming street chronicle from the UGK lifer. If you like what you’re hearing, you can click here for a behind-the-scenes look at the record’s creation—and, of course, keep it locked to the Booth for the latest from both Bun and 14KT.
