With the Big Ten being widely recognized as the best basketball conference in the country this year, many sports enthusiasts are looking forward to Big Ten Tournament to see who will emerge as the best in the best conference. Many analysts believe the Big Ten will have six or more teams in the NCAA Tournament, and at least four teams from the conference have been ranked in the top five nationally this year. The intersection of music and sports is prominently on display during high profile sporting events. Almost every sports arena has a DJ; players submit playlists to be played during warmups; and networks license music to help create excitement for their broadcasting. Mekka Don, an independent hip-hop artist and former NCAA athlete (Ohio State football), has inked a multi-song licensing deal with the Big Ten Network to provide music for the upcoming Big Ten Tournament games and coverage. The Big Ten Tournament begins on March 14th on the Big Ten Network. Mekka Don, who has licensed music to several other outlets including ESPN, the Big East Network, Fox Sports Ohio and others says, “I am really excited to be a part of this. Being a former athlete, I definitely understand how music can add to the overall sporting experience. Shout out to the Big Ten!” For more information on the Big Ten Tournament please log onto www.bigten.org . Mekka Don’s lead song “Big Ten (Lay it on the Line)” for the tourney can be downloaded from iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/big-ten-lay-it-on-line-single/id616823358) and Amazon, and more information on the artist can be found on www.mekkadon.com .

This past Sunday at the Ohio State v. Michigan State game, the promo video I did with the basketball team debuted on the Jumbotron. My song "Let's Go (O-H-I-O)" (available on iTunes) was featured in the video. The video also featured the infamous Nuthouse (OSU students section), OSU cheerleaders, and Brutus. The Let's Go O-H-I-O shirt I'm wearing is courtesy of HOMAGE. We're told the video will be shown again at the Illinois game on March 10th. We'll also release it online shortly. Stay tuned. Go Bucks!

Couldn't be happier to get such a great feature and cosign from MTV Tres for the mixtape. Shout out to Omar Paredes and the good people at MTV networks for the continued support.

The tape is full of that high energy music to get you motivated, with hard rhyming, high bpm and good energy......Mekka Don is smart, savvy and aware of what needs to be done to get you motivated without thugging you to death. Take a listen to It’s On for a nice change of pace from Trap rap and highbrow Hip-Hop. Sometimes the medium is a good place to be"
