Like every year, Memphis based Clear Channel radio station K-97 FM, home to DJs and radio personalities like Big Sue, Mike Evans, Devin Steel and Mic Tee, host an annual competition. For 2013, the radio station invited some of the hottest talent to compete up against others at a chance to gain recognition, cash money and an opening spot at one of the biggest shows of the summer - the K97 Summer Jam.
This year, the contest sought out hip hop lyricists to submit 16 bars A Capella which have already been narrowed down to the top 20 submissions.
According to K97FM (WHRK), each week, five competitors from the Top 20 will freestyle for judges and be filmed as part of K97's Next Big Thing Web Show in which the public will vote for the Next Big Thing.
