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.
