Candyman 187 Scholarship to Celebrate a Single Release with Snoop

Despite the fact that he looks like the creepiest rapper of all time, Candyman 187 announced that he's holding a cover song contest for students; the winner will get a $3,000 scholarship.

Candyman 187 wants contestants to record their version of his single "High off the Fame" featuring Long Beach native Snoop Dogg.

The song is to be uploaded to YouTube and then voted on by fans. All submissions need to be in by October 15, and the winner will be chosen by October 31.

"I'm really excited to hear different students' interpretation of my song," Candyman 187 says. "Music education overall is really important to me, as it allows students to express themselves in a safe, and creative way. I'm happy that I'm able to give back in a small, yet meaningful way that will hopefully inspire others to do the same."

Participants must be students ages 13 years or older from any school in the country. Any interested parties are asked to rap and sing the profanity-free "High Off the Fame" in the form of a video to be uploaded on YouTube, and needs to be posted as a video response to the official music video found here. In the description, should be entered.

The video with the most "Likes" on YouTube wins the scholarship. A student can enter on behalf of him or herself, or on behalf of their entire academic institution.
