If you think you can rock the mic, you may want to take part in this contest. You know the deal you sign may not be that great but, at least, you get on.

Coors Light® is partnering with hip-hop pioneer Ice Cube for the Coors Light Search for the Coldest program, a national talent search for the best MC in the country. Garnering more than 140,000 online votes in 2011, its inaugural year, the program is quickly becoming a platform for up-and-coming MCs to showcase their skills to a broad, national audience.

"I've had the opportunity to grow my career into many areas, but hip-hop is where it all began for me," said Ice Cube. "As a fresh and innovative brand, Coors Light is a natural fit with the hip-hop community, so I'm excited to partner with Coors Light to find the next Coldest MC in the country."


Contestant Submissions: April 1 â€" May 15

The competition begins with online submissions in which emerging MCs upload an audio track or video of an original composition to www.SearchForTheColdest.com, between April 1 and May 15, to be voted on by fans and celebrity judges.

Voting: April 1 â€" July 10

Legal-drinking-age consumers can vote for their favorite MC from April 1 â€" July 10, and the top contestants will be selected to perform in the semifinals.


Eight semifinalists will be chosen through both online submissions and via live performances in select markets. The final eight will fall into the following categories:
